Restorative Dentistry
Fort Worth, TX


Woman looking at her smile in a mirror at Del Mar Dental in Fort Worth, TXRestorative dentistry is the practice of restoring, replacing, or repairing damaged or missing teeth. This management of the teeth and their supporting structures is necessary to improve oral health. Common dental restoration processes are as follows.

Dental Fillings


Cavities are damaged areas in the surface of the teeth that are permanent and develop into tiny holes or openings. Cavities are caused when bacteria eat away the enamel on the teeth, and dental fillings are the best procedure to treat these small cavities. A dentist will remove the decayed portion and fill it with a composite material that matches the color of your natural teeth. Dental fillings stop the progression of further tooth decay.

Dental Crowns


Dental crowns, sometimes called a cap, are used to restore larger cavities or broken or chipped teeth. The dentist first removes some of the tooth enamel and shapes your tooth before placing a crown over it.

Dental Bridges


A dental bridge is used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. It consists of an artificial tooth surrounded by dental crowns, which means that the dentist will grind the adjacent teeth to bond the bridge over them so that the replacement tooth fills the gap in between.

Dental Implants


Dental implants are small screw-like posts that replace missing tooth roots. They are surgically placed inside the jawbone and can connect with a dental crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants do not require shaving of the adjacent teeth and provide a far longer-lasting and more comfortable tooth replacement option.

Dentures


Partial or complete dentures are used to replace several missing teeth or an entire arch. Dentures are placed on top of your gum but do not replace the missing teeth roots. Alternatively, you can get implant-supported dentures that are attached to dental implants and feel more comfortable and convenient while chewing or speaking.

Same-Day Dentures


Same-day dentures or immediate dentures are partial or complete dentures used to hold tissues together and allow them to heal properly immediately after natural teeth have been extracted. Further discomfort is managed with anesthesia or pain medications.

Inlays and Onlays


When the tooth damage due to the cavity is too large for dental fillings and too small for dental crowns, then an inlay or onlay is recommended. Inlays fill the area present between the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay is fabricated for a larger area and covers the cusp of the tooth.

Tooth Extraction


Tooth extraction is a basic dental restoration in which a tooth is removed completely or pulled out from its socket.

Root Canal


Root canal therapies treat the cavities or cracks that go deep into the teeth and reach their pulp. This approach is necessary to prevent bacteria from causing a painful infection in the tooth pulp. During a root canal procedure, a dentist will remove the diseased pulp, disinfect the whole tooth, and then fill the canal with a special dental material before sealing it with a dental filling.
