Restorative dentistry is a fairly new topic, but it is one that has been around for many years. It refers to the ability to not only restore the function but also the beauty of a person’s teeth. The procedures that fall under this category are those that could be considered cosmetic as well as restorative.
For example, a patient that needs to replace a missing tooth might want to do so in order to be happy with his smile, but it will also restore full function to his mouth by having that tooth replaced. The same is true for other tooth replacement options, such as bridges, dentures and implants. A few other categories that also fall under restorative dentistry include veneers, dental bonding and fillings.
Our goal is to help you find a way to keep your natural teeth as long as possible. If there is a method that will work to keep your tooth’s roots intact while making the surface of the tooth stronger with a few improvements, that is the road we will travel. Your natural teeth are always the best alternative to any other replacement choice.
Of course, there are instances that warrant strictly replacing the teeth rather than trying to keep them, which is why restorative dentistry reaches such a broad spectrum.
Restorative dentistry is not done “in vain” or considered cosmetic; it is a procedure that is necessary to restore the function of your mouth. Without these procedures it would be difficult to continue to enjoy the food and drinks that you love as well as smile. Life is too short to live it in pain or embarrassment, which is why we are proud to offer restorative dentistry procedures.
