Cerec® Tooth Restoration Milwaukee: Look Good, Feel Good

Cigno Family Dental Cerec Dental Restorations Milwaukee

Considering tooth restoration Milwaukee?

A lot of people go to the dentist in Milwaukee for a smile makeover. Others, however, go because they need to get their teeth fixed for practical – or even health – purposes. Milwaukee tooth restorations can fall under either category.

What is tooth restoration? A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore tooth function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries (cavaties) or external trauma. (Wikipedia on tooth restoration)

There are two major types of tooth restorationsdirect restorations and indirect restorations. Then, dental restorations can be broken down even more based on where they will be located and their size.

In a regular tooth restoration, the first step is preparing the tooth. In this stage, the patient will go the dental practice to have any decay removed. The dentist will also remove any necessary tooth material to make way for the restoration dental service. The tooth preparation is then filled with any number of materials such as gold, amalgam, composites, glass cement, porcelain, or ceramic.

Usually, the entire dental services that make up tooth restoration can take a few visits. Direct restorations are quicker than indirect because the restoration is “built” inside the patient’s mouth. However, there is still the extraction visit. And depending on the number of teeth needing to be restored, even direct tooth restorations can be a somewhat lengthy process.

Indirect tooth restoration is even more involved and lengthy than direct. In this type of dental restoration, the restoration material is built up independently of the patient in a lab. It’s then bonded into the mouth. Common indirect restorations include inlays and onlayscrownsbridges, and veneers. All of these dental services are common for both the smile makeover and utility and function.

Cerec tooth restoration Milwaukee, is a whole different story!
