Restorative dentistry includes several procedures that can improve and restore a smile. This may include:

  • Bridges: Bridges are used to replace either single teeth or small groups of teeth. Bridges can be removable or fixed in place. 
  • Dental implants: Dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root system. In place of natural roots, dental implants have metal roots that are placed in the jaw. Dental implants are permanent.
  • Fillings: Fillings restore the tooth when there are areas of decay that have created holes.
  • Root canal: A root canal is sometimes needed when the tooth decay is too severe to be repaired with a regular filling. The root canal procedure removes damaged material, replaces it, and protects the tooth with a crown.
  • Veneers: Veneers are panels, made from porcelain. They are cemented to the front of the tooth. They can protect teeth that have chips, cracks, or other types of damage.
  • Crowns: Crowns are used to cover teeth that were treated with a root canal, and they may also be used to protect cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth.
