What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is the treatment of a fractured or damaged tooth or in order to restore or bring them back to their best health.  Our restorative dentistry services are used to treat patients who have had:

  • Tooth decay or dental caries
  • Occlusal wear or dental attrition
  • Acid erosion
  • Damage caused by periodontal (gum) disease
  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Traumatic injuries to the face, mouth and teeth

Methods of Restorative Treatment

The most frequent forms of restorative dentistry include:


Dental restorations or fillings are placed to return carious, fractured or diseased teeth to their original form and function. Most modern restorations are tooth colored composite resins, which combine strength and esthetics for a durable, beautiful end result.

Root Canal:

Root canal therapy helps teeth by removing diseased or dead nerves inside the tooth, relieving pain and minimizing the chance of further infection.

Crowns cover a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size, strengthening and improving its appearance. A crown may be recommended to cover and support a tooth with a large filling. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that is already broken.

A full denture replaces all of the patient’s natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips. A partial denture simply replaces missing teeth so the remaining teeth do not move or become crooked.

Dental Implants:

A dental implant is either used to replace a single tooth or restore an entire row of teeth and provide a more permanent solution. Dental implants are a good alternative for people who have generally good oral health and have lost their teeth due to an accident or have lost a tooth due to periodontal disease.
