What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on procedures that repair or replace teeth. The goal of restorative dentistry procedures is to improve the smile as well as improve the function and health of the teeth, gums, and mouth. The most common restorative dentistry procedures are dental crowns, dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges.

  • Bone loss
  • Facial deformity
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Trouble chewing, eating, and talking
  • Oral and dental health issues

Types of Restorative Dentistry Services We Offer

Dr. Sheldon Sullivan and our team of highly skilled and experienced dental technicians are experts in cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures that can improve your confidence, self-esteem, and oral, dental, and overall health. Call us to schedule a consultation for any of these restorative dentistry services:

  • Dental ImplantsA dental implant procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth or to support a dental bridge or dentures. A dental implant is a small titanium rod implanted into your jawbone to replace your missing tooth root. Once the bone has healed around the implant, we will use an abutment to place a prosthetic tooth or teeth on the rods. Dental implants look natural, are incredibly durable and long-lasting, and can successfully restore multiple missing teeth.
  • Dental CrownsA dental crown is used to repair a dental cavity and restore strength, stability, and function to your tooth. A crown may also be placed after root canal therapy. A crown fits over the tooth and prevents further damage, so you can chew, eat, and talk normally.
  • Dental BridgesA dental bridge can replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge includes one or more prosthetic teeth with a dental crown on each side. The dental crown supports the bridge, and the bridge is bonded to your natural teeth.
  • Dental Inlays and Onlays If you have a dental cavity that is too big for a dental filling but too small for a dental crown, we may recommend dental inlays and onlays. We will fill the area that is damaged or missing and then bond the filling material into place.
  • Dental FilingsDental fillings are necessary when you have tooth decay or a dental cavity. We will remove all decayed matter and fill the dental cavity with a dental composite to restore the strength and function of the tooth and prevent further damage. We may also place a dental crown to further enhance the strength and appearance of the tooth.
  • Root Canal TherapyWe may recommend root canal therapy if you have advanced tooth decay that is threatening the health of your tooth and your overall health. During root canal therapy, we will drill a small hole in the affected tooth and clean out all decayed and infected matter. We will then clean the interior of your tooth and root canals with an antiseptic treatment and fill the interior with dental material. We will then seal the tooth to prevent further bacteria. We may place a dental crown to offer more support to your tooth.
  • Implant Supported DenturesImplant-supported dentures are fixed, permanent dentures that are not removable. We use dental implants to replace an entire arch of missing teeth or several missing teeth in different parts of the mouth. They are very stable and durable and make talking, chewing, and eating much easier than removable dentures.

Differences Between Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your teeth rather than their function or overall health. Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Teeth whitening
  • Veneers
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Dental inlays and onlays
  • Laser gum contouring

Restorative dentistry procedures focus on improving your teeth' function, health, and form so that you are at a lower risk of oral and dental health issues. Some cosmetic dentistry procedures are also restorative, like dental crowns.
