Our primary goal is always to protect and care for your own natural teeth. Even with the best care, though, teeth and gums are at risk for cracking, cavities, infection, and other kinds of damage. Restorative dentistry maintains and improves oral and overall health when or more teeth or the tissues surrounding them become damaged or decayed.
Restorative dentistry restores both the function and the aesthetics of the damaged tooth. There are numerous possible treatment options depending on your needs and desires. We will carefully assess the affected tooth and surrounding structures, and then work with you to develop a cohesive treatment plan that meets your budget as well as your needs and goals. Restorative dentistry safeguards health and helps reduce the risk of needing more extensive dental work in the future.
Restorative Dentistry Procedures
Restorative dentistry procedures may include, but are not limited to:
Fillings: If you have only a minor to moderate amount of tooth decay or damage, we can remove it and then fill in the space with a tooth colored composite resin that hardens under a special laser.
Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are an excellent choice for teeth that are too heavily damaged for a filling, but still retain enough healthy structure that a crown is not needed. An inlay sits between the cusps of a tooth, while an onlay covers one or more cusps. Inlays and onlays are typically crafted from dental porcelain, but composite resin or even a gold alloy may be used if desired.
Crowns: For severely damaged or decayed teeth, including those that have had root canal treatments, a crown can preserve the remaining healthy tooth structure. The tooth is carefully cleaned and prepared, and a precisely fit crown of dental porcelain or other material is bonded onto the tooth.
Bridges: A dental bridge spans the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Traditional dental bridges are supported by crowns placed on the natural teeth at either end, while implant supported bridges are anchored to dental implants, leaving the healthy teeth undisturbed.
Implant Restorations: Dental implants are considered the best solution for replacing missing teeth. A biocompatible piece of titanium is inserted into the jawbone, taking the place of a tooth root and providing a secure, stable foundation for a crown. One dental implant can support one crown, two implants per arch can stabilize dentures, and just a handful of implants can support a full set of fixed replacement teeth.
Dentures: If you are missing many or all of your teeth, they may be replaced by dentures. There are several types of dentures, including partial and full, fixed and removable.
