If you have lost a tooth or experienced severe cavity damage, restorative dentistry may be what you need to recover your lost smile. A quick online search will lead you to our restorative dentist who can provide you with gentle, quality service.
Restorative dentistry repairs teeth that have been damaged through accidents or natural decay. Some of the most common procedures include caps, crowns, and bridges. Our restorative dentist will examine your teeth and recommend the most beneficial treatment. Once you have worked with your dentist to determine the best options for restoring your teeth, he or she will explain how long the procedure will take to complete and how much time is generally needed for healing. Usually a restorative dentistry procedure takes more than one visit to fully complete the process.
Most restorative dental work includes the use of a crown or a bridge to repair broken or missing teeth. The main difference between these two types of repair appliances is that a crown is permanently affixed to what is left of a broken tooth. A bridge is a prosthetic tooth that fills the gaps left behind by lost teeth. The prosthetic teeth bridge the gap between your good teeth. Your dentist will create crowns for the teeth on either side of the bridge to hold it in place permanently. Our dentist will give you a bridge or crown over the span of a few visits.
Once you and our dentist have determined the correct restorative dentistry procedure, you can expect to visit the dentist's office several times over a few months for preparation and repair work. The first visit will probably be for a thorough cleaning and preparation of the area to be restored. Subsequent visits will involve the actual repair work. If you have several teeth to be crowned, our dentist will probably recommend that they be done a few at a time to reduce the trauma to your gums and mouth. You will probably be fitted with temporary crowns at first, then have to come back to have the permanent crowns put in place. Once all of the procedures are complete, your teeth will look natural and perfect, as if there had never been a problem.
I've been going here since 2010 and I love this dental office! It's very convenient to my residence and they offer an array of services! I'm currently under Invisalign treatment and they gave me a great price! I highly recommend them for any of your dental needs!

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
