Restorative dental treatment falls outside of the routine check-up and cleaning you visit us for every 6 months. Restorative refers to diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral diseases that have led to chipped, cracked, discolored, decayed or missing teeth. With our care those teeth can return to their original appearance and health through one of the many services offered below, depending on your individual oral health history and need.
Crowns are used as a type of restorative treatment to protect your damaged teeth, whether they are broken, cracked or have a filling that is coming loose. Crowns cover the entirety of your tooth above gum line and can also be placed on top of dental implants. They can be made with a variety of materials, but porcelain is best for the most natural look to match your other teeth.
Dental implants are placed within your jawbone where you have a missing tooth. They can be used to replace one or multiple teeth to restore your smile’s beauty and functionality. There are multiple ways to complete dental implant treatment which will be determined based on your individual need and oral history. After your titanium implant has been placed and had time to heal, a porcelain crown will be attached to the top to look just like your natural teeth.
Fillings are made from a composite material, colored to match your natural teeth, that can be used to repair compromised teeth. They can fix damage from cavities, chipped teeth, or even fill in gaps in your smile.
