Our dentists, Dr. Tim DePalma and Dr. Marissa Garcia, and their team will help you every step of the way to restore your smile with a comfortable and successful procedure process.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a branch of dental medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions that affect the teeth, gums, and mouth. This type of dentistry aims to restore the teeth’s functionality and appearance using various techniques, including fillings, dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures. Restorative dentistry procedures may also be used alongside cosmetic dentistry, which enhances the overall look of the teeth.

Our Restorative Dentistry Procedures

Restorative Dental treatments we provide at our office include:
Dental bridges serve as an efficient solution for missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between. Bridges can restore your smile and the ability to chew and speak properly.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength and improve its appearance. When cemented into place, crowns fully encase the visible portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line.
Dental fillings are treatments used to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structures, which can result from cavities or external trauma. It is a way to restore a damaged tooth to its normal function and shape.
Dentures are replaceable alternatives for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They are made to resemble your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance.
Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems. They are made up of titanium and other materials compatible with the human body. Dr. DePalma or Dr. Garcia will surgically place the posts into the upper or lower jaw, functioning as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

Who Can Benefit From Restorative Dentistry?

Anyone with dental problems such as:
Restorative dentistry can also help individuals who have had previous dental work that needs to be replaced or repaired. Additionally, restorative dentistry procedures can improve chewing and speaking abilities and enhance the overall appearance of the teeth. Regardless of why you need restorative dental treatments, Dr. DePalma and Dr. Garcia will help you through the process and ensure a calming atmosphere during your appointment.

The Restorative Dentistry Process

After the diagnosis, your dentist will develop a treatment plan that includes the type of procedure, the duration, and the cost.
