What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry includes all dental treatments that restore your mouth to good health. This includes preserving natural teeth that have suffered damage or decay by restoring them with fillings or crowns. In the case of a missing tooth, dental implants restore your mouth to health by replacing both the tooth and the tooth root. Dental bridges – and partial, full, or implant-supported dentures – are also restorative dental treatments. Likewise, treatment for gum disease restores your gum to a state of health through deep cleanings, and root canal therapy corrects decay and infection deep within a tooth.

Elite Family Dental Care leverages the most advanced dental technologies available to provide comfortable, effective, and beautiful dental restorations.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry restores your mouth to a state of good health. This improves not only the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and smile but also provides functional benefits. Some of the many benefits of restorative dentistry include:

  • Pain relief

  • Removal of decay
  • Healthier gums
  • Jawbone preservation

FAQs about Restorative Dentistry

Should a decayed tooth be pulled or restored?

Wherever possible, natural teeth should be preserved. Each tooth root plays an essential role in preserving your jawbone. The restoration of a natural tooth is oftentimes more cost-effective than extracting the tooth and replacing it with a dental implant.

Do restorative dental procedures hurt?

No. Our dentists prioritize your comfort, no matter the procedure. To that end, our dentists will check with you regularly during treatment to ensure your comfort and ease.

Do you treat patients without dental insurance?

Absolutely. In fact, we offer discounts on dental restorations for those who do not have dental insurance. We also accept all major credit cards and CareCredit financing.

Can a broken tooth be saved?

In all but the most severe cases, a broken tooth can be saved. Treatments may include a dental crown, filling, or a root canal. In cases where a tooth has broken below the gum line, the tooth will need to be extracted and replaced with an implant.
