What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral diseases, as well as the restoration of damaged teeth and gums. We aim to restore the function, health, and appearance of the teeth and gums while improving each patient’s overall oral health and quality of life.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are permanent covers that fit over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, and size. They can also be used to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tooth and create a natural looking smile.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are prosthetics that bridge the gap created by missing teeth. They consist of a false tooth held in place by two crowns, which are placed on either side of the gap. Bridges can restore the strength and structure of your bite while providing a natural looking smile.

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating disease or injury to the inner pulp of teeth. Procedures such as root canals and other treatments seek to preserve the structure, integrity and function of the tooth while relieving pain and discomfort.

Our Restorative Dentistry Process

The process starts with an evaluation of the patient’s current dental health and involves discussing treatment options available to you. Our team will perform the necessary procedures to restore your smile. Here’s a closer look at what you can expect:


  • Consultation and examination: The first step in restorative dentistry is to schedule a consultation with our care team. During this appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums and identify any areas of concern. Our team may also take x-rays or other diagnostic tests to get a better understanding of the condition of your teeth.
  • Treatment planning: Based on the findings of the examination, your dentist will develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and concerns.
  • Preparation: Before any restorative work can be done, your dentist will need to prepare the affected teeth or gums. This may involve removing decayed or damaged tooth structure, cleaning the teeth or gums, or shaping the teeth to prepare for a crown or bridge.
  • Restoration: Once the teeth or gums are prepared, your dentist will begin the restorative procedure. Our care team will use advanced materials and techniques to ensure that the restoration is durable, natural-looking, and comfortable.
  • Follow-up care: After the restorative procedure is complete, your dentist will provide instructions for caring for your teeth and gums at home. 

Restorative dentistry plays an important role in keeping your smile healthy and beautiful. With the right dental care, you can maintain beautiful teeth for a lifetime. Through regular checkups, you can ensure that your teeth are always in their best condition. Contact our care team today to get started.

What Happens if Restorative Dentistry Is Done Incorrectly or Not At All?

If restorative dentistry is not performed correctly or not performed at all, it can have significant consequences on your oral health and overall well-being. Here’s a closer look at what can happen if proper action isn’t taken: 

  • Decay and infection: If decay is left untreated, it can spread to the pulp of the tooth and cause a painful infection. This infection can spread to other teeth and gums, leading to more extensive damage.
  • Tooth loss: If a damaged or decayed tooth is not restored, it may eventually become so damaged that it needs to be extracted. Losing a tooth can lead to shifting of other teeth, difficulties eating and speaking, and even changes in facial appearance.
  • Gum disease: If gum disease is left untreated, it can progress and cause gum recession, bone loss, and eventually tooth loss.
  • Bite and jaw problems: If teeth are missing or damaged, it can affect the way you bite and chew, which can lead to jaw pain, headaches, and other problems.
  • Lowered self-confidence: If your teeth are damaged or missing, you may feel self-conscious about your smile and avoid social situations. This can lead to lowered self-confidence and even depression.

Neglecting dental issues can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bite problems, and lowered self-confidence. It’s crucial to address dental problems promptly and seek the help of a qualified dentist to avoid more extensive damage and maintain optimal oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions

The durability of dental restorations can depend on several factors, including the type and location of the restoration, the individual’s oral health habits, and the quality of the materials used. With proper care and maintenance, many restorations can last for several years or even a lifetime.

Caring for your dental restorations involves maintaining good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing daily, as well as visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings. It is also important to avoid chewing hard foods or objects that could damage your restorations. 

Restorative dentistry may be covered by dental insurance plans, though coverage can vary depending on the specific procedure and the individual’s insurance policy. Patients should contact their insurance provider to determine their coverage options and any out-of-pocket costs. 

Most restorative dentistry procedures are performed using local anesthesia, which means the patient should not feel any pain during the procedure.
