What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry covers procedures that return the teeth to a functioning state. The field ranges in complexity from a simple filling to a full mouth of dental implants. Many restorative dentistry procedures can also improve the look of a patient's smile, but the primary purpose is to bring back the ability to chew and speak properly.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Improve Chewing Ability. People with missing or damaged teeth learn to chew "around" the problem areas to avoid causing pain or further damage. When dentists restore these teeth, patients can eat what they want without trouble and discomfort.

Improve Speaking Ability. Missing teeth can make it difficult to form certain sounds and impede clear speech. Restorative dentistry allows patients to speak and be understood.

Protect Tooth Alignment. Missing teeth frequently make their neighbors slip out of alignment. Bite problems can result, along with crossed and crooked teeth. It is more challenging to keep crooked teeth clean, leading to increased tooth decay and gum disease.

Protect Jawbone Health. Missing teeth cause jawbone deterioration and a "sunken" face. Implants protect the jaw from resorption thanks to the extra stimulation of the jaw.

Stop Infections from Spreading. Decay can spread to healthy teeth. When dentists treat decay with fillings, inlays, and onlays, it may protect other teeth from developing future problems.

Composite Fillings

Composite Fillings

Fillings can repair teeth damaged by decay. Tooth-colored composite fillings are highly durable. They also improve a patient's appearance compared to the metal fillings of the past.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

Dental inlays and onlays can be considered halfway between a filling and a crown. If the tooth has lost too much structure for a filling but does not need a crown, an onlay or inlay may be the right choice to restore the chewing surface.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns

Crowns protect natural teeth that have experienced decay, trauma, or root canals. These restorations can save your natural tooth from extraction and provide a fully functional chewing surface.

Our office provides same-day CEREC crowns, increasing comfort and convenience while providing a high-quality product.

A bridge is a replacement for one or more missing teeth. Two crowns or implants support a bridge, which may hold one to four artificial teeth. The dentist permanently affixes the bridge.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental Implant Restorations

Implants are excellent replacements for damaged or missing teeth. They are long-lasting, easy to care for, and highly functional. They represent a significant investment in your oral health and appearance.

A denture is a replacement for multiple missing teeth within the same (upper or lower) arch. A denture differs from a crown or bridge in that it does not rely on an existing tooth structure, and it completely replaces the missing teeth.

There are several different types of dentures:

  • Full or Partial
  • Removable or Fixed
  • Traditional or Implant-Supported

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

Is a CEREC same-day crown as good as a traditional crown?
The dentist makes CEREC crowns from composite ceramic material. They are equal to crowns from a dental lab in terms of quality and durability, and they take only hours instead of weeks.
Can a crown save my natural tooth?
The dentist examines teeth individually to determine whether a crown can preserve the remaining structure or an extraction may be necessary. Most teeth can accept crowns in case of decay, breakage, or root canals.
Is a bridge more comfortable than a partial denture?
A bridge is more comfortable since it is a permanent fixture in your mouth. Partial dentures may rub, slip, or fit poorly.
Does it hurt to get a filling?
Today, restorative dental work is comfortable, thanks to advanced local anesthesia. You may have minor soreness after the procedure as the anesthesia wears off, but this should pass quickly and allow you to return to your routine activities.
How long does it take to get a dental implant?
The process could last for several months. It requires extracting the tooth, inserting the post, and capping it with an abutment and crown. Each step requires healing. When finished, you will have a long-lasting, fully functional replacement tooth.
