While enamel is the hardest substance in the body, decay, gum disease, medical conditions, and trauma can still compromise the integrity and health of your teeth. Restorative dentistry encompasses all the dental procedures used to rebuild damaged tooth structure, replace missing teeth, and reestablish healthy, attractive, and functional smiles.
Restorative procedures combine the art and science of dentistry to replace lost tooth structure and/or missing teeth so that patients can once again speak, smile, and chew with confidence and ease.
As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, our office will determine the restorative procedures most suited to your dental needs, cosmetic goals, and budget. The nature and extent of the damage a tooth has sustained, plus any missing, congenitally absent, impacted, misaligned, or non-restorable teeth, influence the recommendations for restorative care.
