Restorative Dentistry

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry involves the repairing and rebuilding of teeth to help restore the function and appearance of your bite. Crowns, fillings, bridges, implants and more are all considered restorative dentistry.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is sometimes called a fixed partial denture because it is made of two or more crowns with one or more prosthetic teeth called pontics. A bridge might be recommended if there are factors that do not make someone a good candidate for a dental implant.


Dental Crowns

A crown is a perfect restoration to rebuild a tooth when a filling is not an option. They cover the whole top of your tooth and are cemented into place. Crowns can be made of composite resin, porcelain, metal or a porcelain-fused-to-metal combination. Crowns are made to perfectly match the color, shape and size of your natural tooth, giving you a natural-looking, long-lasting restoration.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are made of a light-cured composite resin. They are strong and durable, and come in shades to match every tooth — even bleached shades for patients with ultra-white smiles, so they are virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth.


Dental Implants

A dental implant is a natural-looking tooth replacement that functions like the real thing. A post, usually made of titanium, is placed in the jawbone. After a specified healing time, a crown is placed on top of the implant to look just like a real tooth.


Dentures are a replacement for missing teeth. They can be removed for cleaning and sleeping and can be made to match your smile, or you can create a whole new shape! Complete dentures are used when all your teeth are missing, and partial dentures are used when most of your natural teeth remain. Partial dentures are especially helpful in preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of position, which can alter your bite.


Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are an effective way to save your natural tooth when the nerve dies or becomes infected. Instead of extracting your tooth, we can remove the tooth’s interior pulp and put a medicated material in its place. After your root canal, we will place a filling or crown over the top, and you will have full, pain-free function again.
