Restorative Dentistry By Experienced Dentist in White Rock, BC
Restorative Dentistry is a fancy term for when a tooth needs to be restored to its original shape and form. A few reasons for having fillings done is:
- Replacement of failed fillings
- Abrasion or wearing away of tooth structure which can cause sensitivity
To restore a tooth to its normal function or improve an aesthetic appearance, Dr. Gupta has proven clinical techniques that follow specific steps to complete restorations. Cavity preparation is the process of removing decayed tooth structure while leaving healthy tooth structure behind. The steps for a filling are preparation of the tooth, placing a white filling material to match your tooth’s natural shade. We do not place amalgam (silver) fillings unless requested by the patient.
