What Is Restorative Dentistry?
As its name suggests, restorative dentistry restores your oral health. It is an attempt to save natural teeth from tooth decay, infection, a misaligned bite, cracks, fractures, chips, and even trauma. Or, when saving the tooth isn’t possible, replacing it with a natural-looking tooth alternative.
It takes an experienced dental team to diagnose and treat the issues that may be plaguing patients. And, sometimes more than one treatment is necessary to successfully restore oral health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a difference between restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry?
Yes. Restorative dentistry includes procedures that are meant to address a tooth’s functionality whereas cosmetic dentistry focuses on appearance.
Is it possible to fix a broken tooth?
Absolutely. Restorative dentistry can handle all types of cracks, chips, fractures, and such unless the tooth is cracked all the way to the gumline. Dental crowns work beautifully to restore strength and functionality to the tooth.
Do I have to replace a missing tooth?
Never ignore a missing tooth just because it is no longer there. As time passes, the surrounding teeth can begin to shift and this can have a big impact on your overall oral health. It is important to replace the missing tooth sooner rather than later.
