Even people who stop in for routine check-ups and preventative services are likely to need restorative dentistry at some point in time. It’s nothing to be worried about; our doctors can make you feel better and prevent future issues from arising.
What is restorative dentistry?
Dental work like fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants are considered restorative dentistry. With these, the goal is to repair damaged teeth or replace missing ones. Restorative dentistry corrects structural problems and returns proper functioning so you can regain your oral health and hopefully a boost of confidence.
Is restorative dentistry right for me?
Our doctors will be happy to consult with you about any questions or concerns you have about your oral health. Restorative dentistry may right for you if…
- Damaged or missing teeth make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene
- Damaged or missing teeth hurt your self-esteem or impact your appearance

- Brush twice a day.
- Use an electric toothbrush to remove plaque.
- Floss regularly around crowns, implants, and bridges.
