Healthy natural teeth are strong structures by nature as long as they are intact. But there are so many things they need to resist every day! The bacteria in your saliva, the chewing and biting forces, night grinding or clenching, sugary and acidic meals, contact sports, unforeseen events and accidents challenge them throughout their entire lifespan. Even with a proper dental hygiene routine, damage to your teeth is possible. Teeth can break, get chipped or fractured, abraded, decayed and so on. Treatments that fall under the category ‘restorative dentistry’ aim to bring back the original functionality and aesthetics of your teeth – or to make them even better.
