Restorative dentistry is the area of dentistry that involves diagnosing, preventing, and treating oral diseases. There are nine recognized dental specialties, and restorative dentistry encompasses three of them - endodontics, periodontics, and prosthodontics.

What this means to you is that a restorative dentist is a professional you can turn to who can repair decayed, chipped, cracked, discolored or even missing teeth caused by disease, wear, or trauma. Restorative care includes treatment for teeth affected by any of these problems. 

Treatments for these conditions are designed to restore the form, function, and appearance of your smile and include:

  • Tooth-colored filling
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Full or partial removable dentures
  • Implant-retained dentures
  • Inlays and onlays
