What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on restoring the health and function of teeth. Oftentimes, patients have more than one tooth that needs restoring, or they have several missing teeth that need replacing. Our comprehensive approach allows us to look at the mouth as a whole and combine the needed treatments to restore the health, functionality, and aesthetics of your teeth. With our help, you will achieve a smile that looks and feels natural.

Your treatment might include one or more of the following treatments:

Advantages of Restoring Your Teeth

The foundation of a beautiful smile is one that has healthy teeth that function well. Restorative dentistry can help you replace and restore your teeth to complete health and function. When you opt for restorative dentistry, you can expect to experience a handful of amazing benefits like the ones listed below.

Avoid Extractions – If you still have natural teeth remaining, restorative dentistry can help you keep it that way. Retaining your natural teeth helps preserve bone and your youthful appearance.

Better Function – When teeth are damaged or missing, it can affect how your teeth function. We offer a variety of restorative treatments that can replace missing teeth and restore your teeth to full function.

Improved Aesthetics – Not only will your teeth function fully, but they will look amazing! Our comprehensive approach also helps you achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile.

Tooth Replacements That Work For You – Whether you dislike your current tooth replacement or need one, we offer a wide range of options to help you complete your smile in a way that looks and feels comfortable for you.

Improved Bite – When we restore your teeth, we also make sure we’re optimizing your bite at the same time. This can help prevent and improve TMJ disorders.

Is Restorative Dentistry Right For Me?

Many patients can benefit from the help of restorative dentistry. In some cases, patients go years without seeing a dentist and have a mouth full of problems that need help. We also see patients who experience trauma from an accident who need several teeth repaired or replaced. Generally, if any of the problems listed below apply, you can benefit from restorative dentistry.

  • Missing teeth
  • Gapped, chipped, cracked, worn, or damaged teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Uncomfortable or unnatural looking tooth replacements

In some cases, we might recommend that a patient has extractions if there is no way to save their teeth or if their oral health is consistently declining. In the end, the best candidates for restorative dentistry are patients who want to improve the functionality and health of their teeth with the added benefit of an improved smile.
