What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is the use of dental and surgical procedures to correct any broken or decayed teeth. While it is important to maintain the teeth we have for as long as possible, eventually, it becomes necessary to fix any damage that arises during the lifespan of our teeth.

Tooth decay, infection, cracks, fractures, misaligned bites, traumas, chips, and more can be corrected with simple restorative dental procedures such as fillings or partial crowns. While this side of dentistry is often focused on correcting the functional part of the tooth, oftentimes these same procedures can be used to help the teeth look and feel better as well.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Composite fillings use tooth-colored material to restore teeth with cavities and maintain a natural appearance. Once the decay is removed, the tooth is filled with a composite material which is then cured using a specialized light to harden the material. Composite fillings can be done in one visit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it necessary to replace a missing tooth?

Yes. The sooner you replace a missing tooth, the better. Do not just disregard a missing tooth and leave the space empty. This invites the surrounding teeth to shift, increases the rate of bone loss and causes even greater oral health concerns.

How can you fix a broken tooth?

With restorative dentistry, you can address all types of cracks, chips, and fractures, and replace missing teeth. Dental crowns bring strength and functionality to the tooth while implants can completely restore any teeth that need to be replaced when they break too far.

What is the difference between restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the overall appearance of the teeth while restorative dentistry focuses on the functionality. Here at Fairbanks Dental Associates, we strive to find the perfect balance of both. While we understand that oral health is the priority for the majority of patients,
we firmly believe that the appearance of any restorative dentistry is extremely important for a patient's overall dental care.
