Restorative Dentistry: What’s It All About?

Do you feel a minor sense of panic when we suggest you need restorative care to improve your oral health? The good news is that there’s no stigma attached to requiring a restoration – there are so many factors that may lead to some type of dental damage that it’s extremely important you keep a positive attitude about dental care. From accidental injuries to an unexpected cavity, things may occasionally go wrong. Fortunately, we can quickly return your smile and your oral health to its proper condition.

About Restorative Dentistry

Restorative care provides patients with treatments that repair damage that has occurred and that will clear the potential source of the problem (such as existing decay or a broken tooth that is likely to continue breaking apart). We will suggest restorative dentistry when we recognize problems with your smile – keep in mind that ignoring an issue and waiting to schedule a visit for a restoration will promote the advancement of the issue. The longer an oral health concern goes untreated, the easier it is to experience additional damage.

Restorative Treatments

Within the field of restorative care, the goal is always to make your smile what it was before you experienced the problem at hand. For instance, if you have a cavity, the goal is to remove the decay and replace the missing tissue. If you have a broken tooth, the goal is to repair or cover and protect that tooth, so you may use it again (and so your smile looks intact again). Our comprehensive listing of restorative dentistry treatments includes the following:

  • Dental Fillings
  • Dental Crowns
  • Dental Bridges
  • Dental Implant Restorations
