Restorative Dentistry: What’s What?

questionmarkblueAre you very familiar with the details of restorative dentistry? If asked, could you list off the associated treatments and explanations? Or, is this simply something you are familiar with on a need-to-know basis (as in, you know that if you need a repair, you will require restorative care)? By becoming more familiar with services and essential information, you will gain a broader perspective regarding what’s what in the world of restorations. The more you know, the more confident you will feel if you require a quick fix or more complex improvement to your oral health.

Dental Fillings

A dental filling is a restorative dentistry treatment that addresses tooth decay. We will fill the cavity in your tooth (after removing dying tissue) to restore the structure of your tooth and your oral health.

Dental Crowns

A crown is a more substantial restorative dentistry treatment than a filling – we may place this hollow, artificial tooth over your remaining natural tooth for cosmetic improvements or to treat a broken or severely decayed tooth.

Dental Bridges

We often suggest a bridge for a patient missing one tooth, two teeth side-by-side, or three teeth in a row. It is a fixed device that will complete your smile.


If you require the removal of your tooth to restore your oral health, we will address your needs with a dental extraction. This is often essential for a severely infected tooth or problematic wisdom teeth.

Partial and Full Dentures

From partial tooth loss to complete tooth loss, we can address your replacement needs with a full or partial denture – these are removable, budget-friendly prosthetics.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canals are restorative dentistry treatments that can save an infected tooth – we will complete the process with a beautiful dental crown.
