There are many reasons for broken, worn and damaged teeth. These problems are cosmetically undesirable and can adversely affect the function and health of your teeth and gums. Restorative dentistry restores aesthetics as well as bite function to improve chewing and overall oral health.
Even with good flossing and brushing habits, plaque and tartar deposits can still build up on your teeth and be the cause of more serious problems in the future. Having routine professional teeth cleaning is the most effective way to maintain healthy gums.
Wisdom teeth extractions may be recommended when there's lack of sufficient space in your mouth to accommodate them and they become impacted, partially erupted or infected. Also, effective cleaning of these teeth proves very difficult because they are too far back in your mouth and this often leads to tooth decay.
Cosmetic dentistry can stand for many things these days, but one thing is certain, a naturally stunning smile speaks volumes. Dr. Raquel Bastos explores all the options and combines her keen eye for details with advanced techniques and the latest materials to refine and perfect the appearance of your smile.
