Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is oral health care in which your provider repairs or replaces damaged teeth. It involves treatment to improve the structure, function, and appearance of teeth that are:

  • Decaying
  • Worn down
  • Weak
  • Loose
  • Missing
  • Too small
  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Broken

Seeking treatment for tooth decay or damage right away gives your dentist the best opportunity to prevent teeth from falling out or requiring extraction.

What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry offers you numerous benefits. It protects teeth from further damage, restores your smile, and can give you a boost of confidence. Replacing missing teeth can prevent adjacent teeth shifting, improve your speech, and make chewing easier.

Which restorative dentistry services are available?

Some of the many restorative dentistry services available at Cedar Mountain Dental include:

Crowns

A crown is a special cap made of tooth-colored materials or metal that fits over a natural tooth to protect it, strengthen it, and improve its appearance. Your dentist first removes tooth decay, scans your teeth to create a custom-fit crown, and cements the crown over your tooth.

Bridges

Dental bridges are artificial teeth surrounded by two crowns on each side. They’re designed to replace missing teeth. Implant-supported bridges consist of multiple artificial teeth that attach to titanium tooth roots.

Dental implants

Your dentist can put metal posts, which serve as artificial tooth roots, in your jaw to support crowns or bridges and replace missing permanent teeth. 

Dentures

The team at Cedar Mountain Dental offers different types of dentures to replace missing permanent teeth or those requiring extraction. They provide implant-supported dentures and removable full or partial dentures tailored to fit your unique needs and preferences.

Which restorative dentistry procedures are right for me?

To find out which restorative dentistry procedures for which you’re a candidate, the Cedar Mountain Dental team examines your mouth, teeth, and gums. They complete dental X-rays and discuss your desired results. Your dentist personalizes each treatment based on the severity of oral health problems and your lifestyle.
