What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry involves returning missing or damaged teeth to their full function using crowns, bridges, and dentures. While restorative procedures often have the added benefit of cosmetic improvement, the primary purpose is regaining natural biting and chewing functions
Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Improves Teeth's Functionality
When your teeth are broken, cracked, or missing, you may have trouble biting and chewing your food. Restorative dentistry procedures can give you back your ability to eat, speak, and smile freely.
Protects Tooth Alignment
Missing teeth may cause their neighbors to slide out of position, causing uneven or crooked teeth and possible bite issues that could lead to tooth grinding, headaches, and TMJ. Restoring these teeth with dentures, bridges, and implants helps to keep teeth naturally aligned.
Extensively decayed or damaged teeth frequently cause pain when chewing. One of the most significant benefits of restorative dentistry is knowing that you can live your life pain-free without having to chew around sensitive teeth.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures are attractive replacements for damaged or missing natural teeth. While their primary purpose is therapeutic, they can also boost your appearance and self-esteem.
Same-Day Dental Crowns
We use the CEREC system to create same-day dental crowns in the office. CEREC crowns are a high-tech milled ceramic material for strength and a natural appearance.
Inlays & Onlays
Bridges provide artificial replacements for missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges are durable and attractive and do not damage neighboring teeth. If you have up to four missing teeth in a row, a bridge may be the right choice.
Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants replace missing teeth and protect existing teeth by helping to preserve bone structure. Dental implants are composed of three pieces: a small screw made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, an abutment that connects the screw, and the final restoration.
Full Arch Dental Implant Restorations (Teeth in a Day)
People may have told you that dental implants take several months to complete. However, if you need an entire arch of dentures, you can take advantage of our Teeth in a Day offers for a single-day procedure.
Dentures can brighten your smile with attractive, functional replacement teeth. We offer multiple options, including implant overdentures and traditional full and partial dentures.
