What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to dental treatments and procedures that restore the health of your teeth. It can involve repairing your natural teeth or replacing teeth that are unable to be saved. The overall goal of restorative dentistry is to restore proper function of your teeth so that you can chew and speak effectively.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry offers many benefits:

  • Save your natural teeth. In many cases restorative procedures can save your natural teeth. The key is getting the procedure taken care of at the right time before the damage to the tooth is too severe.
  • Replace missing or severely damaged teeth. When a tooth is decayed or damaged beyond repair, restorative dentistry can replace one or more teeth with a variety of prosthetic options.
  • Improve chewing capabilities. Restorative procedures can repair or replace your teeth so that you are able to effectively chew your food, allowing you to get adequate nutrition and enjoy your favorite foods.
  • Improve the appearance of your smile. Restoring the health of your teeth also improves your smile, which in turn can boost your confidence and help you feel better about yourself.

Procedures Offered

We provide the following restorative procedures:

Cone Beam machine

Same Day Restorations.  Depending on the procedure being performed, your dental restoration may be able to be placed on the same day or next day instead of the usual wait of one to two weeks or more.

Composite Fillings

Dental fillings. When a cavity forms in a tooth due to plaque, a dental filling is the procedure used to fill it. We use tooth-colored fillings for a natural appearance.

Cosmetic Bonding

Root canals. When a cavity in a tooth is large enough to reach the inner chamber of the tooth that contains the dental pulp, the tooth may develop an infection. A root canal involves removing the dental pulp and replacing it with a filler material that fortifies the tooth and prevents infection.

Dental Crowns

Crowns. A crown is a protective cover placed over a tooth that has severe damage to the natural crown. The existing enamel is reduced to make room for the crown and the natural root of the tooth remains in place for support. Crowns can be made of porcelain or metal depending on the location of the tooth.

Dental Bridge Graphic

Bridges. A bridge is a tooth replacement option for one or a few teeth in a row. Each end of the bridge consists of a crown that is placed over the remaining tooth on either side of the gap. One or more artificial teeth, called pontics, are suspended between the crowns.

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental Implants. A dental implant is an artificial root that is surgically placed in the jaw. An artificial tooth can be attached to the implant to replace a single tooth. Multiple implants can be placed in the jaw to support a bridge or dentures.


Dentures. When some or all of the teeth need to be replaced, dentures provide a partial or full restoration. Traditional dentures can be secured with suction or adhesives. Partial dentures can attach to the remaining teeth for support. Implant supported dentures are held in place with anywhere from 4-6 dental implants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are white fillings better than metal fillings?
Metal fillings used to be more common, but they have a few disadvantages. Metal fillings are sometimes visible in your mouth, and they expand and contract with changes in temperature, which can cause your tooth to crack. We now use composite fillings that are made to match the color of your existing teeth for a natural appearance and are less likely to damage your natural enamel.
Is a root canal painful?
A root canal procedure can be done with local anesthesia like a filling. Local anesthesia numbs the nerves so that you don’t feel any pain. If you are nervous or anxious, please let us know so that we can provide the necessary support.
Dental bridge vs dental implant: which is better?
The best tooth replacement option for you depends on your individual needs and preferences. Dental implants are typically considered to be higher quality than bridges because they provide a natural look and function, they don’t harm your natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime. However, dental bridges are more affordable and are a workable solution for patients with minimal bone structure in the jaw. We can discuss the options with you to help you decide which is best for you.
How long do crowns last?
On average, a crown will last 10-15 years. But with good care and maintenance, it could last 20 years or more. If you practice good oral hygiene habits and go to the dentist regularly for cleanings and exams, your crown will most likely last longer.
Does insurance cover restorative dentistry?
Most restorative procedures are covered by dental insurance. The best way to find out for sure what procedures are covered is to contact your insurance provider or refer to your benefits guide for more information.
