What is Restorative Dentistry?

Our teeth become more vulnerable and susceptible to breakage and deterioration throughout our lives.

When you are facing these types of challenges with your teeth, dentists use supportive structures and replacement teeth to help you maintain the health of your teeth over time; these methods collectively are known as restorative dentistry.

Depending on the condition of your teeth and the health of surrounding teeth, your dentist will recommend an appropriate course of action to restore your teeth. If you are missing a tooth or even all of your teeth, your dentist may recommend the installation of a bridge, an implant, or dentures (either full or partial). If you have a tooth that is experiencing deterioration, it is possible with various restorative dental techniques to preserve the natural tooth.

Restoring your smile, the overall health of your mouth, and your ability to chew correctly are all goals of restorative dentistry. To preserve the health and structure of weakening teeth, we may recommend crowns or veneers.

Some insurance companies limit the procedures they will cover and your overall bodily health will play a significant role in which procedure will be right for you. Restorative dentistry procedures can semi-permanent or temporary and the restored or replacement teeth should be treated and cared for just as you would your natural teeth in order to prevent bacteria and discoloration.
