What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to dental treatments and procedures that serve to restore the health and function of your teeth. This category of dentistry includes a variety of procedures from cavity fillings to dental implant restorations. Some restorative procedures repair teeth and others replace teeth. But the ultimate goal is the same, to give you a healthy, functional smile. 

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

There are many benefits of restorative dentistry procedures and treatments: 

  • Keep your natural teeth. The best case scenario is for any damage to your teeth to be repaired so that your natural teeth can stay in place. Cavity fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns are all procedures that can repair your existing teeth and allow them to remain in your mouth. 
  • Replace missing or damaged teeth. When one or more teeth are missing or too damaged to be saved, a variety of restorative procedures can be used to replace them. Dental bridges, dentures, and implant restorations are all tooth replacement options. 
  • Chew more effectively. By repairing or replacing damaged teeth you can chew much more effectively, allowing you to enjoy a greater variety of foods. 
  • Speak more clearly. Missing teeth can affect your speech, making it difficult for others to understand you. Replacing missing teeth with restorative options allows you to speak more clearly and confidently. 
  • Smile more confidently. Restorative dentistry can transform your smile, giving you increased confidence and improved self-esteem.

Composite Fillings

The most common restorative procedure is cavity fillings. Composite resin is a material used to fill cavities that can be dyed to match the existing color of your teeth.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays

When too much of the tooth enamel is missing, inlays and onlays can be cemented into place to supplement the missing portion of the crown of a tooth. Inlays are fitted to the inside of your tooth and onlays are fitted to the outside of the tooth.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

A crown is a protective cap placed over a tooth that allows the existing roots of the tooth to remain. The tooth is reduced to a smaller size so that the crown can fit over the top.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge Graphic

When a tooth is missing, a bridge can replace it. A bridge consists of two crowns that fit over the healthy teeth on each side of the gap with an artificial tooth (pontic) suspended between them. A single bridge can replace between 1 and 4 teeth in a row.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental Implant Restorations

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root system. A titanium root is surgically placed in the jaw with an artificial crown attached to it. An implant looks and functions like a natural tooth, making it the highest quality tooth replacement option.

Dentures

Dentures

When many or all of the teeth in your mouth are missing or unable to be saved, dentures can replace them. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw and partial dentures replace multiple teeth using the remaining healthy teeth for support.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do dental implants last?
Once a dental implant successfully fuses with the bone of the jaw, it can stay in place for the rest of your life. The crown, which is the artificial tooth portion, can last for at least 10-15 years before it may need to be replaced.
What are dental crowns made of?
Most crowns are made of porcelain because it resembles natural tooth enamel. For front teeth that are highly visible, porcelain is the most realistic option. Crowns placed on back molars are sometimes made of gold or metal alloys because they are less visible and must withstand greater bite force.
Which is better, a dental implant or a bridge?
A dental implant provides a more stable, natural looking restoration that won’t damage your healthy teeth in any way. A dental bridge is more affordable than a dental implant, but it requires healthy tooth enamel to be removed in order to fit the crowns that hold it in place. We can help you decide which of the two options would be best for you.
Can I just have my tooth pulled instead of restored?
If your natural tooth can be restored with a filling or a crown, that is always better than having the tooth extracted. A missing tooth will leave a gap in your mouth that can cause other teeth to shift out of place, and replacing a tooth is more expensive than repairing it.
