What is a dental restoration
Restoration of teeth – reconstruction and aesthetic correction of color settings and the tooth forms a direct way by using special dental materials, simulating the dentin and enamel, directly in the client’s mouth. dental work is required to be perfect, and requires dental knowledge and skills of the sculptor. This restoration is also called “aesthetic”, “cosmetic” or “art”
For photopolymerization dental restoration materials are the most often. In the first stage, is the restoration of the destroyed dentin tissue and then applying to the tooth enamel simulating the natural and as a result, the patient has a tooth (or part thereof), which will not differ from the natural shape and color.
Restoration is absolutely painless (you can use anesthesia for a specific need). Unlike prosthetic teeth are subjected to minimal impact and this method is often considerably cheaper.
Problems that can solve the aesthetic restoration of teeth:
- change the color of tooth enamel;
- large carious cavity;
- irregular (uneven) tooth shape;
- the presence of gaps between teeth
- wrong position of teeth;.
- How often the tooth or destroyed more than half of the tooth
In other words, during the restoration can restore the shape and color of the tooth, thus making it so that the teeth are not restored will differ from healthy. Since the two methods can be used in dental restorations: direct and indirect.
Restoration using the direct method
Restoration of teeth using the direct method is carried out directly in the mouth, where on-site dentist creates a new tooth. Materials used: light-curing composite (photopolymers) or glass ionomer cement. The advantage of this method is that the restoration is usually done in one day. In general, the restoration of a single tooth can go from 15 minutes to an hour (depending on the complexity of the case). The disadvantage of the restoration using the direct method is considered to be the fact that over time, teeth can be restored to fade, lose their original luster, so the care is needed to pay more attention to the choice of toothpaste.
Restoration using the indirect method
Restoration using the indirect method involves the production of in vitro veneers – thin porcelain or composite plates, which replace the outer layer of the teeth. Unlike crowns, veneers do not cover the whole tooth, and only the front part and effectively utilized if the teeth are not sufficiently flat or white.
Restoration using the indirect method is carried out in several stages:
- Preparing for the restoration (dental treatment is carried out if necessary);
- Impression and manufacturing of veneer from a cast;
- Installing the veneer.
Thanks veneers can get almost perfect smile. Do not use veneers with malocclusion, or the absence of posterior teeth in the conduct of an extreme lifestyle.
The cost of dental restoration depends on the complexity of the case (as broken tooth), the method used, time spent and materials used.
