What Is Restorative Dentistry?

For patients who have suffered tooth loss, decay or damage, restorative dentistry is the field of dental study that helps them find long-term solutions that address their specific oral health needs. While we believe the best dentistry is preventive, we are happy to offer high-quality restorations to help return your smile to its full health and function. Whether you are missing a full arch of teeth or have noticed mild decay or damage, we can help you find the treatment that brings your smile back to life.

What Can I Expect From My Restorative Consultation?

When you visit our office for restorative care, our dentist will start by thoroughly examining your smile to determine the extent of the damage, discuss your treatment options with you and make recommendations for how to restore your smile. They will take into account which treatments will offer the greatest long-term health, provide the most natural-looking results and return the most oral function, so you can have a beautiful, confident smile once again. Our end goal is always to help you fall back in love with your smile.

I Lost My Tooth. What Now?

Replacing your missing tooth as soon as possible it vital to maintaining the health of your smile, as it will preserve the proper alignment of your smile and, in the case of implants, help prevent bone resorption. Our team can offer a number of tooth replacement options, and we will go over these options with you when you visit our office. Depending on your specific needs and treatment plan, we may recommend one of the following:

  • Dental Implants — Implants consist of a titanium implant post, which is surgically inserted into your jawbone and replaces the missing tooth root, and an implant restoration, which replaces the visible part of your missing tooth or teeth. Because they replace the entire tooth, implants are a long-lasting and natural-looking restoration.
  • Dental Bridges — Bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. The prosthetic teeth are held in place using two teeth on either side of the gap. In some cases, your bridge may be supported by dental implants.
  • Dentures or Partials — Traditional dentures and partials are removable oral appliances designed to replace multiple missing teeth or an entire missing dental arch. Implant-supported dentures are similar but more stable and can only be removed by our dentist.

Can Children Receive Restorative Treatments?

Yes. Though children will eventually lose their baby (primary) teeth, it is important to their future health and wellness to restore teeth that are damaged due to cavities or injury. Our dentist can answer any questions you may have about the importance of baby teeth and whether restorative treatment is right for your child.

How Much Will Restorative Treatment Cost?

Because each restorative treatment plan is designed with the specific patient in mind, it is difficult to estimate your cost of treatment before your initial consultation. The severity of the damage to your smile, and any treatments that may need to be completed prior to your restoration, will affect the overall cost. Rest assured, we will discuss your estimated price prior to providing any service so you will know what to expect in advance. Many dental insurances will also help cover at least a portion of the cost, and we will work with you to help maximize any benefits you have.
