What is restorative dentistry?

The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the teeth to a functional and aesthetically pleasing state. Ultimately, we try to preserve your natural teeth and tooth structure as much as possible, but if that is not possible, we replace missing teeth. Replacing lost teeth and fixing broken teeth is necessary to maintaining good oral health. Filling an empty space helps prevent cavities in the surrounding teeth, helps you chew better and improves your appearance. Fixing broken teeth helps you look and feel better and prevents tooth loss later on.

What are some restorative procedures?

Procedures include fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants and root canal treatment.

  • Fillings “fill” the decayed area of the tooth and can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth.
  • Crowns cover the teeth to restore their normal shape or size, strengthen them and improve their appearance.
  • Bridges are permanent appliances that replace one or more missing teeth by “bridging” the space between two teeth.
  • Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and tissues.
  • Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They provide the foundation for replacement teeth made to match your natural teeth.
  • Root canal treatment is used to save an infected or badly decayed tooth. The tooth nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
