The topic of restorative dentistry is one that focuses on the reconstruction of teeth to rebuild their strength and integrity to withstand the forces of an oral cavity that many would describe as chemically and mechanically intolerant. Imagine an environment that can vary chemically from moment to moment; sometimes there is a neutral pH, but when bathed with a Soda, the pH quickly drops to that of battery acid for possibly hours at a time. On top of that, the same environment offers mechanical forces on teeth that are equal to that of a wrecking ball trying to destroy a building. Forces between the molar teeth can reach 300 lbs per square inch, sometimes resulting in fractures, broken teeth, and even tooth loss.
Now imagine trying to “rebuild” these stressed teeth to the point that can once again hope to withstand the oral cavity. Fortunately, dentistry has advanced constantly over the last 70 years to a point where we can literally restore teeth to their original strength and sometimes beyond. Remember, as our dentist and team restore teeth at Designing Smiles PSC, we demand attention to detail regarding natural tooth anatomy and function. This means that Dr. Dennis Jenkins takes the time to meticulously care for each case as indicated, and if a dental lab is needed to create the restoration, we use only the finest labs and materials available.
Restorative dentistry involves all the aspects of dentistry, from sculpted composite fillings to all-porcelain crowns and veneers. No matter the treatment, there is always one goal in mind: the restoration must look awesome and function equally awesome within each individual chewing system.
