What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is an umbrella term covering any dental procedure that treats damaged teeth, the gums, the jaw, or other oral health issues that impact the functionality and health of your mouth. Restorative dentistry often begins with treating or removing damaged or decayed teeth before employing solutions that can restore your ability to chew or speak. Dental implants can even prevent further tooth loss and changes to your facial appearance due to missing teeth.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Even when you brush, floss, and attend dental cleanings regularly, oral health issues can slip through the cracks. When these problems occur, restorative dentistry can help. Here are some of the benefits restorative dentistry offers you:

Relieve Pain

Pain from an infection, gum disease, or other concern can keep you from focusing on what matters in life. Treatment with fillings, inlays and onlays, crowns, and other restorative methods can help relieve any oral pain you’re experiencing.

Improve Dental Function

Damaged and missing teeth can make eating your favorite foods difficult. Restoring your smile with dental crowns, bridges, implants, and other restorations can improve the overall function of your teeth, allowing you to speak and eat comfortably.

Prevent Further Problems

By clearing infection, decay, and disease from your mouth, we eliminate the problems interfering with your oral health. Once we’ve eliminated these problems, we can seal off compromised teeth and protect them from further concerns with fillings, crowns, and other restorative solutions.

Increased Confidence

While the goal of restorative dentistry isn’t to improve the look of your smile, many patients enjoy cosmetic benefits regardless. Replacing missing teeth and restoring chipped, cracked, and damaged teeth can significantly improve the confidence you have in your smile.

Our Featured Restorative Dentistry Treatments

Time, the natural aging process, and oral health issues are just some of the factors that can take a serious toll on your smile. Fortunately, modern dentistry makes it possible to rehabilitate smiles that have suffered virtually any setback using solutions like these:

dental bridge

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges consist of one or more artificial teeth that are secured in place with dental crowns or implants. Bridges replace one to four consecutive teeth and offer a strong, long-lasting solution that lets you chew and speak properly.

Tooth Fillings

Fillings can replace dental tissue after cavity treatment to protect your tooth. Our fillings match the color of your tooth for a natural look, and the modern composites used for fillings make them a great option for patients with metal allergies.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover teeth following treatment for extensive damage or decay, providing protection while restoring the function and appearance of a tooth. A dental crown covers the visible portion of a tooth and can be made with natural-looking materials that seamlessly blend with your smile.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays also replace damaged dental tissue. Dentists use them when traditional fillings won’t suffice but crowns would be excessive. Inlays cover the chewing surface of a tooth, while onlays cover the chewing surface as well as one or more cusps.

dental implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium posts that can replace tooth roots and support crowns, bridges, and other dental restorations. Implants provide the ultimate strength and stability while also being the only restoration that halts the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss.

Full and Partial Dentures

Dentures are a set of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Full dentures replace all teeth on the top or bottom arch, while partial dentures fit among a patient’s natural teeth. Traditional dentures rest on the gums and implant-supported dentures are attached directly to the jaw.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is a personalized treatment plan designed to restore smiles in any state of disrepair. These plans combine two or more treatments and may include cosmetic dentistry treatments such as veneers.

FAQs About Restorative Dentistry

Does insurance cover restorative dentistry?

Insurance often covers many restorative procedures, such as fillings and dental crowns. Meanwhile, some restorative procedures, like dental implants, are not often covered by insurance. The amount of coverage you receive depends on your plan. Our team can coordinate with your insurance provider to ensure you get the most coverage out of your plan.

How else can I pay for restorative dentistry procedures?

If your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of your treatment or you don’t have dental insurance, you can pay out of pocket or through CareCredit® financing. We accept financing CareCredit so that you can break the cost of your treatment up into affordable monthly payments with low or no interest.

Do restorative procedures hurt?

At Dumas Family Dental, comfort is always a priority. To achieve this comfort, we use local anesthesia to thoroughly numb any sensation in the treatment area. We also offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to ease the body and mind beforehand. This can be especially helpful for more intensive procedures like wisdom tooth extraction or dental implants.
