Restorative dentistry involves restoring a damaged or missing tooth to improve oral health and quality of smile. It may be purely cosmetic, or it may be necessary for your oral hygiene and health. There are many procedures that fall under the restorative dentistry umbrella, and Dr. Schmid can tell you if you need any of them.
If you want a nicer looking smile, or if you're concerned about cavities, tooth decay, missing teeth, cracked teeth, or any other number of dental issues, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Schmid at Contemporary Cosmetic Dentistry in Austin, TX at 512-329-5967 today!
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry covers a number of dental procedures. Some of the most common and popular restorative treatments include:
Modern advances in technique and technology mean that in the hands of an experienced dentist, your smile can be restored in a very natural looking manner. Gone are the days when obvious silver fillings were the norm; nowadays, we can fill your teeth with a sophisticated white compound so no one will even be able to tell you have fillings. A cracked tooth can be covered with a crown in the exact shade of the rest of your teeth; if you're missing a tooth, the same goes for implants.
Am I a Candidate for Restorative Dentistry?
You may be a candidate for restorative dentistry if you:
- Have cracked or chipped teeth
- Have cavities or tooth decay
- Are missing teeth
- Have significant discoloration of the teeth
Some restorative dentistry treatments are covered by insurance, while others are considered cosmetic and would not be covered. Talk to Dr. Schmid to find out if your treatment is covered.
However, even if your treatment is not covered, we want to help you achieve your best smile. This is why we offer payment plans and financing through CareCredit. We believe that everyone should be able to have a beautiful, healthy smile.
