What is a Restorative Dentist?

A restorative dentist diagnoses and manages the diseases of the teeth and gums that undermine the function of the dental structure.

A restorative dentist will assess the condition of the teeth and gums, consider the patient’s aesthetic goals, then develop and implement a plan to restore the patient’s dentition.

Restorative Dentistry May Be Your Answer for a Healthy Smile

Loose or missing teeth on a child is cute – but not on an adult. Cavities and gum disease damage your teeth and take a toll on the appearance, function, and health of your mouth. A restorative dentist can help you retain the proper use and beauty of your smile.

What Can a Restorative Dentist Do For Me?

Restorative dentistry will either include direct or indirect methods (or a combination of both) to restore mouth health. In the direct method, the dentist will remove tooth decay and use fillings (or inlays) to cover and fill in the damaged portion of the affected teeth. Fillings are made out of various materials, and tend to only require one office visit.

The indirect method is used when the damage is deeper into the tooth, or affects multiple teeth, and may require more than one office visit.  In this case, the dentist will use crowns, onlays, veneers, bridges, or a combination, to provide the patient with dentition that is attractive and functions properly.
