What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry provides procedures that are meant to repair and restore natural teeth. Broken teeth, decaying teeth, chipped teeth, weakened teeth, and more can lead to greater dental issues if left untreated. With restorative dentistry, teeth can be restored to their natural function and appearance.
There are many factors that contribute to the need for restorative dentistry, such as poor oral hygiene, age, wear and tear, bruxism, and more. With technology and advanced procedures, your teeth can be restored and you can once again find your confident smile.

Taking care of your oral health issues with restorative dentistry procedures can have a positive, lifelong impact.
Cavities are one of the most common dental issues. And, if this decay is caught early, then composite fillings allow the teeth to be restored while maintaining their natural appearance.
Inlays and Onlays
For teeth that have decay too big for composite fillings but not yet big enough for crowns, an inlay or onlay is used. This partial crown procedure protects the tooth while keeping it functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Crowns cover the entire tooth, blending in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. They are often used for teeth that are cracked, broken, worn, or heavily decayed. Crowns are customized to your tooth and are carefully cemented in place.
For those missing more than one adjacent tooth, a bridge can be used in place of dentures. Crowns are placed on the remaining teeth on either side and they are attached to a fabricated tooth (or teeth) in the middle.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are a natural-looking, fully functional tooth replacement. An artificial root is implanted into the jaw bone and, once fused together, a crown is attached to the top.
Dentures are used to replace many or all missing teeth. They come with many options, such as full or partial, fixed or removable, and traditional or implant-supported.

Talk to your dentist and discover what your best option is.
Can you fix a broken tooth?

Will decay continue to spread?
