Restorative dentistry is taking the world by storm these days. It’s incredibly easy to get your smile tweaked just a tad so you can have that dazzling set of pearly whites you’ve dreamed of. But there are so many different options for restoration that sometimes it’s hard to settle on what’s best for you and your smile.

So let’s see what our team at Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS in San Francisco, California, suggests you look at if you’re considering any restorative dentistry.

Crowns

These may be the most popular procedures performed today. Getting a crown is pretty simple. It simply involves your broken tooth – or teeth – being ground down to form an abutment, upon which a new cap or crown is cemented in place, restoring your tooth.

Implants

If a crown won’t do the trick to restore your teeth, then implants are your next best bet. Implants are great at restoring teeth that have completely eroded and no longer perform the function they used to. However, you will need to meet certain health criteria to be a candidate for implants.

Veneers

If your smile is marred from deep enamel stains or minor chips and cracks in your teeth, then look no further than dental veneers. These super-thin porcelain shells sit right over the top of your teeth and give them an immediately new, brilliant shine. They’re one of the more expensive procedures, but definitely worth it.
