What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a specialized field of dental care focused on repairing and restoring the function, integrity, and aesthetics of teeth damaged by decay, disease, or trauma. This field encompasses many dental procedures, from basic fillings to complex implants and crowns. 

The primary aim is not just to correct issues as they arise but to return the mouth to a complete state of health and functionality, often improving the patient’s quality of life significantly. Through advanced dental technology and materials, restorative dentistry can offer durable and natural-looking results, ensuring that restorations are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth. 

Whether addressing a simple cavity or providing a full-mouth reconstruction, restorative dentistry plays a huge part in maintaining dental health and enhancing the beauty of patients’ smiles.

Restorative Treatment Options We Offer

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made restorations that cover the entire surface of a tooth above the gum line, effectively restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are typically used to protect weak teeth from breaking, restore already broken teeth, cover severely worn or misshapen teeth, or cover a tooth with a large filling when there aren’t a lot of teeth left.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a common restorative treatment that repairs teeth that have been compromised by decay or fracture. By removing the decayed material, cleaning the affected area, and then filling the cavity with a specialized material, such as amalgam, composite, or porcelain, fillings restore the tooth to its original shape and function.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is designed to treat infection at the center of a tooth (the root canal system). It is needed when the pulp inside the tooth, which consists of blood vessels and nerve tissue, becomes infected or damaged.

During the procedure, the dentist removes the infected or damaged pulp, cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth, and then fills and seals it to prevent any further infection. This treatment relieves dental pain and saves the tooth from being removed.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a durable and long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone, acting as a root for the artificial tooth. Over time, the implant fuses with the bone, providing stable support for a dental crown, bridge, or denture that is custom-made to match your natural teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues, providing a practical solution for those who have lost some or all of their teeth to decay, injury, or periodontal disease. They are crafted to fit comfortably in the mouth and aesthetically resemble natural teeth, improving the user’s appearance, speech, and ability to chew food.

Dentures come in two main types: complete dentures, used when all the teeth are missing, and partial dentures when some natural teeth remain. Custom-designed for each patient, dentures not only restore the functionality of teeth but also support facial structure, preventing the sagging of facial muscles.

Dental Bridge

Dental bridges are a restorative solution that can replace one or more missing teeth, “bridging” the gap between two remaining teeth. The bridge is composed of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these anchoring teeth are known as abutment teeth) and a false tooth/teeth in between.

These false teeth, known as pontics, can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants and can prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
