Restore Your Smile With Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry focuses on fixing the issues that negatively impact a smile. Some of these problems may include broken teeth, tooth decay, and missing teeth. With the help of restorative dentistry, patients can smile confidently again and restore their oral health.

Most Common Restorative Dentistry Procedures

Tooth Fillings

A dental filling is a restorative dental treatment used to treat a tooth cavity. A cavity occurs when a tooth is worn down from chewing, drinking sugary drinks, or not properly restoring the teeth. When a cavity forms, a dental filling is used to restore the tooth’s structure, function, and appearance.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restorative procedure used to protect a tooth that is broken or fractured or a tooth that has a large filling. A crown will restore a tooth’s shape, size, and strength, allowing it to function normally. It can be made from a number of materials, including metal, porcelain, ceramic, and resin.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a partial denture that can replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. The bridge is secured to the adjacent teeth with dental crowns. They can fill in the gap left behind by a missing tooth, preventing other teeth from shifting out of alignment. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing or failing teeth. The implant itself is a small post or screw that is placed into the jawbone. Over time, it fuses with the bone and becomes a permanent fixture. The crown, bridge, or denture is then placed on top of the implant to create a complete, natural-looking smile.

Root Canals

A root canal is a procedure used to repair teeth that have infected or damaged roots. These procedures can save teeth that would otherwise have to be pulled.

The root canal procedure involves:

  • Removing the infected pulp and nerves from the inside of the tooth.
  • Filling the empty root canals to prevent infections.
  • Sealing the tooth.

Dentures and Partial Dentures

If you’ve lost all of your teeth, you may benefit from dentures, and if you have lost a few of them, then you may benefit from partial dentures. These artificial teeth are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth.
