Exploring Your Options: 5 Types Of Tooth Restoration Procedures At Madisonville Dental Center

When it comes to restoring your smile, there are a variety of dental restoration procedures designed to improve both the function and aesthetics of your teeth. From minor fixes to major repairs, our team is equipped to help you achieve a healthier, more beautiful smile. This guide will walk you through five key restoration procedures that can help address various dental issues.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are one of the most common restorative dental treatments used to repair minor tooth fractures, cavities, and decay. Dentists use high-quality materials for fillings, including composite resins that match the color of your natural teeth. The process involves removing the decayed portion of the tooth, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with the chosen material. Not only does this procedure restore the tooth to its initial shape, but it also serves as a preventive measure against further decay by sealing off any cracks that could potentially allow bacteria to infiltrate.

Dental Crowns

For teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, dental crowns are an excellent solution. Crowns are custom-fitted caps that cover the entire tooth above the gum line. They restore the tooth’s shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are crafted from a range of materials like ceramics, porcelain, or metal alloys, all carefully chosen for their durability and ability to seamlessly integrate with your natural teeth. The procedure typically requires two visits: the first to prepare the tooth and take impressions, and the second to fit the permanent crown.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge comes with multiple crowns for adjacent teeth and one or more artificial teeth, filling the gap between them. These false teeth can be crafted from porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination thereof. Natural teeth or implants support the bridges that aim to restore your smile by preventing other teeth from moving out of position, maintaining the shape of your face, and enabling proper chewing and speaking.


Dentures are prosthetic devices that can substitute missing teeth and help in restoring your smile. If all or most of your natural teeth are missing, as a result of injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, a replacement of the missing teeth can boost your oral health and overall appearance. That’s because dentures support better eating and speaking as compared to performing them without teeth—things that people often take for granted. We offer both complete and partial dentures for when all teeth are missing and when some natural teeth remain respectively.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a durable and long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they serve as the roots of missing teeth. Once the bone has healed around the implant, it can act as a base for a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are stable and feel like natural teeth. They are an excellent option not only for their functionality but also for their ability to preserve the jawbone and maintain facial structure.
