Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry involves diagnosing and treating diseased teeth and their supporting structures and returning them to health again. It can also involve enhancing the mouth’s appearance.

Services involved in restorative dentistry can include fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, and more.

What types of dental issues does restorative dentistry address?

Restorative dentistry addresses many dental issues, with treating damaged and missing teeth being the most common. Some of the procedures include:

Replacing missing teeth

At Comprehensive Family Dentistry, your provider will suggest a series of options to treat missing teeth, such as:

  • Bridges: Bridges fill the gaps of one or more missing teeth
  • Dentures: These removable dental frames hold prosthetic teeth in place
  • Implants: These prosthetic tooth replacements are anchored by metal posts

Depending on the cause of your missing tooth, your dentist will recommend the most appropriate treatment option.

Filling cavities

Filling the cavities prevents decay on the surface of the tooth. Your dentist at Comprehensive Family Dentistry will use enamel-colored fillings to restore your natural smile.

Treating broken teeth

If your tooth is broken, your dentist at Comprehensive Family Dentistry can recommend either dental crowns or bonding.

What’s the difference between cosmetic and restorative dentistry?

In most cases, restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry work together to reach your goals.

Restorative dentistry focuses on treating a damaged or infected area, whereas cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of your teeth.

During your appointment at Comprehensive Family Dentistry, you and your dentist will discuss your goals. From there, your dentist will give you treatment options that might include a mix of cosmetic and restorative procedures.

In most cases, your dentist starts with restorative work to treat any functional issues — such as missing, broken, or decaying teeth — and then moves on to cosmetic procedures to enhance the results of your treatment. Cosmetic procedures may include teeth whitening or Invisalign® teeth aligners.
