Restorative dentistry falls outside of the routine check-up and cleaning you visit us for every 6 months. Restorative dental treatment refers to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral diseases that have led to chipped, cracked, discolored, decayed or even missing teeth. With our experienced, gentle dental care those teeth can return to their original appearance and health through one of the many services offered below, depending on your individual oral health history and need.
Crowns are used as a type of restorative dentistry treatment to protect your damaged teeth, whether they are broken, cracked or have a filling that is coming loose. Crowns cover the entirety of your tooth above the gum line and can also be used to place on top of dental implants - appearing just like a natural tooth. They can be made with a variety of materials, but porcelain is best for the most natural look to match the color, shape, and texture of your other teeth.
Dental implants are placed within your jawbone where you have a missing tooth. They can be used to replace one or multiple teeth to restore your smile’s original, natural beauty and functionality. There are multiple ways to complete dental implant treatment, which will be determined based on your individual health needs and your oral health history. After your titanium implant has been placed and has had significant time to heal, a porcelain crown will be attached to the top to look just like the rest of your natural teeth.
Fillings are made from a composite material, colored to match your natural teeth, that can be used to repair compromised teeth. Whether your tooth has been chipped, cracked, or damaged from one or more cavities, fillings can fix that damage. Dental fillings can even be used to fill in gaps in your smile without leaving a trace of evidence that you used to have uneven spacing between your teeth.
