What is the importance of restorative dentistry for Lakewood residents?
Dr. Scott Stewart of South Lakewood Dental is a dental professional who understands the importance of restorative dentistry. Many patients may feel as though certain treatments are not necessary. They may believe that cosmetic work is not needed and is only for patients who are in extreme need of aesthetic services. However, cosmetic and restorative dentistry can have a dramatic impact on one’s appearance and self-confidence.
Restorative dentistry encompasses any procedure that is done to address aesthetics or function of the smile. When teeth are lost, they can result in reduced chewing and biting efficiency. This can have a negative effect on how well food is chewed and digested. It can also make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance because of the gap in their smile. This may affect self-esteem and confidence. Dr. Scott Stewart is proud to offer Lakewood area patients with restorative dentistry services to improve these patients’ quality of life.
Restorative dentistry includes procedures such as:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental fillings
- Inlays and onlays
Some restorative solutions are used to add a layer of protection to the natural teeth or to replace teeth that are missing. Others such as porcelain veneers are used to cover imperfections including permanent staining, breakage, or unusually shaped teeth. When patients come to the practice of South Lakewood Dental with aesthetic concerns, Dr. Scott Stewart can consult with them to determine the best way of addressing their concerns and help them achieve a more attractive smile they can be proud to show off to others.
