Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a dental specialty that fixes and replaces damaged, decayed or missing teeth. Restorative dentistry involves rebuilding or replacing your problematic teeth with prosthetics and filling materials that leave your smile feeling whole, happy, and healthy again.

Why should I get restorative dentistry?

Your smile was designed to have all of its teeth working together in harmony, and when one or more of your teeth are unable to do their job or are missing entirely, it can drastically throw off the delicate balance of your smile.

Besides being a painful nuisance, damaged or broken teeth are more prone to infection, leaving you more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Missing teeth, on the other hand, can cause your remaining teeth to fall out of alignment as they shift into the missing tooth’s empty space. 

An absent tooth can also throw off the distribution of force in your bite, which can lead to excessive and premature wear and tear in certain areas of your mouth, in addition to making you more susceptible to developing TMJ, a painful jaw condition.

Damaged or missing teeth also detract from the beauty of your smile. Restorative dentistry enables Dr. Nguyen to rebuild your smile so that it’s healthier and more attractive.

What are the available tooth restoration services?

Ridge Commons Family Dentistry offers a variety of restorative services, which includes traditional tooth-colored fillings for cavities and ceramic crowns to restore teeth with extensive damage or decay, commonly after a root canal. Other restorative dentistry options include:

Composite bonding

If you have minor cracks or chips in your teeth, or you simply don’t like their size or shape, Dr. Nguyen can use tooth-colored bonding material to repair or reshape your teeth and give your smile a more uniform and natural-looking appearance.

Dental implants

Dental implants are an incredibly modern solution for replacing missing teeth or providing a stabilized support system for dentures or bridges. They enable Dr. Nguyen to restore your smile with a prosthetic that feels and functions just like a natural tooth!

Removable dentures

If you need to replace many or all of the teeth in your smile, Ridge Commons Family Dentistry offers high-quality complete and partial dentures that can enable you to reclaim the look, feel, and function of your smile.
