Rebuilding damaged teeth is the best way to preserve bone and your long term health
“Restorative dentistry” is the term dental professionals use to explain how they replace missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges, and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues.

FAQ’s About Restorative Dentistry
How long is this going to take?
Every person’s mouth is different, but many simple procedures can be done in one or two appointments. People who require extensive work will need to come and see us a few times to repair all the damaged teeth over the course of a several weeks. If implants or bone grafting is needed then treatment often has to be done over several months to give the body time to heal.
Is this going to hurt?
All procedures are done with freezing to make sure you are numb. For those patient afraid of dental treatment we offer in office nitrous to help patients feel more comfortable.
Why do I need a crown?
When a tooth has heavy wear or decay it often gets to a point where there is not enough tooth left to support a filling. This is when a crown or cap is needed to restore the entire outer enamel surface of the tooth. Crowns are much stronger than white fillings and are one of the best tools we have for reversing the damage a tooth has suffered over time.
