Why is oral hygiene so important?The best way to prevent cavities and periodontal disease is by good tooth brushing and flossing techniques, performed daily.
A dental restoration or dental filling is used to artificially restore the function, integrity, and structure of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.
Bonding can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged, and is an alternative to veneers.
Patients who have extreme wear and tear on their teeth, or who have suffered an accident, injury, or damage from serious gum disease are good candidates for full mouth restoration.
