If you’re struggling with dental problems like tooth decay, broken or missing teeth, or gum disease, you’re not alone. These issues can cause discomfort, pain, and even difficulty eating. Luckily, restorative dentistry can help you restore your oral health and function.
Restorative dentistry includes procedures like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures that are designed to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy with restorative dentistry.
Improved oral health
Restorative dentistry procedures can help prevent further damage to your teeth and gums, and improve your overall oral health.
Restorative dentistry can improve the appearance of your smile by filling in gaps, replacing missing teeth, and repairing chips and cracks.
Restorative dental procedures are designed to last for years, providing you with a long-lasting solution to your dental problems.
Better eating and speaking
Restorative dentistry can help you eat and speak comfortably and confidently.
Restoring your oral health and appearance can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Would you like to replace your missing teeth?
Having missing teeth can be upsetting for just about anyone. It will impact your ability to eat, sometimes speak, and affect how confident you feel when smiling. However, there is a better solution to living with missing teeth, with overdentures. These dental fixtures can replace several missing teeth in the top or bottom arch, restoring the appearance of your smile, as well as give better external features.
Overdentures, no matter if you choose to use dental implants, or your natural root for support, are an excellent choice for anyone that desires a full smile. They can be more cost-effective than other solutions, long-lasting, and more durable, offering the wearer a greater sense of permanent replacement.
Missing teeth can contribute to alignment problems
Missing just a single tooth can throw off the alignment of your other teeth. While this may not seem significant right now, the alignment of your teeth is crucial to your oral health. When teeth overlap, the probability of tooth decay increases dramatically. Teeth will be harder to clean, and cavities can form. Alignment issues will require more extensive treatment to correct and may require orthodontics.
The sooner you replace missing teeth, the better. You can avoid many of the pitfalls of alignment problems, or teeth shifting out of place, with restorations. For those that have damaged teeth, corrective procedures like crowns can save your tooth before it dies. Yes, teeth can die, and if they do, they may need to be extracted.
Our restorative dentistry services
Dental implants are a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium post inserted into the jawbone, an abutment, and a custom-made crown or other dental restoration.
Crowns are custom-made dental restorations that cover the entire visible part of a damaged or weakened tooth. They provide strength, protection, and an improved appearance, ensuring your tooth can function properly.
Bridges are dental restorations that replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring an artificial tooth (or teeth) to the neighboring teeth. This helps fill the gap and restores your smile’s appearance and function.
Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace multiple missing teeth. They come in various types, including full and partial dentures, to help restore your smile and chewing ability.
Inlays and onlays are custom-made dental restorations used to repair teeth with moderate decay or damage. They offer a conservative alternative to crowns, preserving more of your natural tooth structure.

WHAT IS RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating problems with teeth, gums, and other structures that support the teeth. The goal of restorative dentistry is to restore the function and appearance of your teeth, while also improving your overall oral health.
HOW CAN RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY IMPROVE MY ORAL HEALTH?
Restorative dentistry can improve your oral health in many ways. For example, replacing missing or damaged teeth can prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place, which can cause problems with your bite and lead to gum disease. Additionally, repairing decay or damage can prevent further decay and infection, which can also impact your overall health.
IS RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY COVERED BY INSURANCE?
Typically, most dental insurance companies will not contribute to the cost of a dental implant. Implants are considered a cosmetic procedure, and most don’t offer coverage for this type of process. A conservative estimate for the costs of a single dental implant is $3,000-$4,000.
HOW LONG DO RESTORATIVE DENTAL PROCEDURES TAKE?
The length of time for a restorative dental procedure depends on the specific procedure and the extent of the damage. Some procedures, like inlays and onlays, can be completed in a single visit, while others, like dental implants, may require several visits over a period of months.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS LIKE AFTER A RESTORATIVE DENTAL PROCEDURE?
The recovery process after a restorative dental procedure can vary depending on the specific procedure and the extent of the damage. In general, you may experience some discomfort or sensitivity in the days following the procedure, but this can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. It’s important to follow any post-procedure instructions provided by your dentist to ensure a successful recovery.
