The smile is one of the main attractions that a person can show and a symmetrical and natural white teeth make a pleasant impression, at first glance.
But teeth are susceptible to destruction, fracture, wear, or irreversible conditions, usually caused by cavities or trauma, even when they are subjected to healthy hygiene habits.
To correct such damage, medical science turns to dental restoration, a practice for the total or partial reconstruction of a tooth, in order to stop the progression of diseases, restore the functionality of the damaged piece and improve the smile.
Types of restoration
To achieve this, artificial materials applied are used depending on the scope of the restoration (if it is complete or partial) and the type of damage that the tooth presents. Among the most common techniques are:
- Fillings. They consist of placing alloplastic resins in a soft state that, by hardening and forming in the mouth, adapt to the space of the tooth to be covered.
- The inlaying of small rigid pieces made of metal, porcelain or resin, in order to replace the missing parts of the tooth. Its function is basically aesthetic.
- Veneers or laminated fronts, which cover the front of darkened, pigmented or discolored front teeth. They are easy to manufacture, because they require a minimal structure to put them on and their function is also basically aesthetic. They are also a resource to cover gaps between teeth.
- Crowns, for full or partial restorations. The dentist makes them to measure, imitating the shape of the tooth and then wears down the natural tooth that will serve as the base of the crown. It is one of the most common dental restoration techniques.
A dental restoration is carried out to recover the functionality and appearance of a damaged tooth, prevent cavities by eliminating areas where harmful bacteria can enter and recover the aesthetic appearance that contributes so much to consolidating self-esteem.
