Restorations Q & A

What is dental restoration?

Regardless of how good your at-home oral hygiene is, teeth are still susceptible to infection, decay, and breakage. If your teeth get damaged, dental restoration helps:

  • Improve the shape, function, and appearance of teeth
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Correct underbites or overbites
  • Prevent tooth loss
  • Repair damaged teeth
  • Relieve dental pain
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Improve chewing

At Dental Star New Jersey, Dr. Potepalov and his team offer numerous dental restoration procedures to make your smile beautiful, relieve pain, and boost confidence.

What causes tooth damage?

Tooth damage can happen regardless of your lifestyle and oral hygiene habits. But certain factors make you more susceptible to teeth imperfections, such as:

  • Grinding your teeth
  • Smoking
  • A poor diet
  • Improper brushing and flossing techniques
  • Genetics
  • Crooked teeth
  • A misaligned bite
  • Skipping regular professional cleanings

Dr. Potepalov may recommend one or more dental restoration procedures to perfect your smile, depending on your individual needs and preferences.

Which dental restorations will I need?

The team of dental experts at Dental Star New Jersey use CEREC 3D technology to restore your teeth back to their normal shape, function, and appearance without impressions. To improve your smile, your dentist may recommend:

Root canal therapy

You might require root canal therapy if your tooth’s nerve is infected, in order to save the tooth. Dr. Potepalov removes bacteria in the pulp of the tooth and fills the empty space with restorative dental materials to prevent future infections.

Inlay and onlay restorations

Dr. Potepalov repairs damaged teeth using inlay and onlay restorations, which are custom-made fillings that are highly durable and last many years. Such fillings are made of tooth-colored composite materials to repair fractured teeth, broken teeth, decayed teeth, and damaged fillings.

Crowns

Crowns are like caps that cover the entire surface of your tooth to restore it to its original size and shape. Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that can’t be fixed with fillings. Tooth-colored porcelain crowns are popular, as they blend in with natural teeth and are long-lasting.

Bridges

Dental bridges help bridge the gap of missing teeth. Bridges consist of crowns that cover your existing teeth, and artificial teeth that fill in the gaps of missing teeth to restore your smile.

Complete and partial dentures

If you’re missing multiple teeth, Dr. Potepalov may recommend complete or partial dentures. Complete dentures are artificial teeth needed when you’re missing all your teeth, and partial dentures are customized to fit in with your remaining natural teeth.
