Restorative Dentistry

Restore Your Oral Health

Restorative DentistryYour smile is at risk every single day. Plaque adheres to your teeth, which may lead to gum disease or tooth decay. Biting down on hard foods or unforeseen accidents may result in trauma, a broken tooth, or other types of physical damage. Bacteria seeking out hiding places may find a tiny entrance into your tooth, which may lead to an infection. While practicing consistent preventive care, including daily brushing and flossing, often keeps problems from developing, prevention cannot reverse damage. Disease and disorders are progressive, which means you will require restorative dentistry treatment to fix structural damage and to treat disease.

Making Repairs

Physical damage may affect your teeth, resulting in tooth decay or even gum disease. When plaque adheres to your teeth and wears away your enamel, a cavity develops. To remove decay and fill the opening, we offer dental fillings. For significantly damaged teeth requiring structural support or protective coverage, we provide dental crowns. Or, we may suggest an inlay or onlay if your tooth is too damaged for a filling but does not yet require a crown.

Addressing Infection

An infected tooth requires serious attention. Not only does the infection place your tooth at risk – it may also threaten surrounding teeth and gums. We offer gentle root canal treatments to clear the infection and to re-seal and fill your tooth to prevent future bacterial invasion. Root canal typically ends with the placement of a beautiful dental crown to further protect your tooth, while restoring function and beauty.

Replacing Missing Teeth

Tooth loss may occur as the result of an impact, tooth decay, gum disease, or other factors. Regardless of the cause, a missing tooth can negatively affect your self-image as well as your comfort, ability to chew and speak successfully, and the balance of your bite. With the use of beautiful, modern dental prosthetics like dental bridges and both complete and partial dentures, we can help you achieve a complete, functional smile.
