What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry can return your teeth to a fully functioning state by replacing or repairing missing or damaged teeth. Using procedures like fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants, our skilled dentists can help you regain your confidence and ability to chew.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Improves Chewing Ability

You may experience trouble chewing with damaged or decayed teeth. You may be accustomed to chewing only on one side of your mouth, causing uneven wear on your teeth. Repairing your teeth helps them fulfill their purpose.

Improves Speaking Ability

Missing teeth may cause speech problems. Replacing them helps you speak clearly.

Eliminates Discomfort

Decayed teeth are often sensitive to cold, heat, and sweets. Broken teeth may expose nerves to air, food, and saliva. Repairing or replacing these teeth increases your comfort and allows you to resume eating your favorite foods.

Procedures Offered

Composite Fillings

Composite fillings are a safe plastic resin that blends in with the natural tooth surface. They provide an attractive appearance and strengthen your teeth. Composite fillings are free of mercury, unlike traditional metal amalgam fillings. They provide a seamless look and also strengthen the teeth. Learn more about fillings

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are useful when the tooth has lost too much structure for a filling but not enough to consider a crown. They cover the damaged tooth's chewing surface, restoring its appearance and function. Learn more about inlays and onlays

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a porcelain or metal cap that fits over a prepared natural tooth. Crowns can restore the structure and chewing ability of a damaged or heavily decayed tooth. They also protect teeth that have had root canals. Learn more about dental crowns

Dental Bridges

A bridge can replace up to three to four missing teeth in a row. The bridge connects to crowns placed on healthy teeth on either side, holding the artificial teeth between them. Bridges restore your appearance and chewing ability while protecting your teeth's alignment. Learn more about  dental bridges

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants are today's most advanced replacements for missing teeth. Unlike bridges, they replace the root and crown of the missing tooth, keeping the jaw bone strong. We restore existing dental implants in our office. Learn more about dental implants 


Dentures can replace a full arch of damaged teeth at once. Partial dentures replace a few teeth. Learn more about dentures

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal treats inflammation or infection inside a tooth's pulp. Root canals relieve the discomfort associated with a broken or decayed tooth and allow the dentist to repair the tooth with a crown or filling. Learn more about root canal treatment 


When a tooth is damaged, and the dentist believes they cannot save it, it may need extraction. We can perform extractions in the comfort of our office. Learn more about extractions

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

How long does a dental implant last?
Dental implants are the longest-lasting type of dental restoration. The implant post may last a lifetime with the correct care, while the crown on top may need replacement every 10 to 15 years. Compare this to fixed bridges which may last only five to seven years.
How should I care for my dental implant?
Dental implants require no more care than healthy natural teeth. Brush and floss as recommended, and visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and comprehensive exam.
How long does it take to get a dental crown?
Getting a dental crown is easy and typically takes two appointments. First, the dentist takes digital impressions to use when creating the crown. The dentist then prepares your tooth, removing decay and smoothing broken edges. The dentist then takes a 3D scan that will be sent to a lab. You will leave with a temporary crown.
Why are composite fillings better than metal fillings?
Metal fillings are made of an alloy or amalgam of different metals, including mercury. Mercury exposure can be dangerous to human health. We believe it is safer to use composite fillings because they do not contain mercury. Composites also strengthen teeth.
How can I tell that I need a root canal?

If you need a root canal, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Extreme sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Tooth discoloration or darkening
  • Swollen, tender gums
  • Pimple-like gum sores
  • A broken or damaged tooth
  • Significant toothache, especially when biting or chewing

Your dentist may also inform you that you need to have a root canal based on X-rays, even if you feel no other symptoms.
