What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is the process of replacing or repairing teeth with bridges, fillings, implants, and more. Doctors skilled in restorative dentistry can enhance your teeth's function and often improve their appearance at the same time.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

  • Returns damaged teeth to their full function
  • Improves chewing and speaking abilities
  • Replaces missing teeth, preventing other teeth from shifting and preserving jaw bone mass
  • Preserves some natural teeth from extraction
  • Improves not only functionality but also appearance

Composite Fillings

Dr. Fallin uses tooth-colored composite resin to fill visible cavities. Composite resin strengthens teeth and provides a seamless appearance.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge Graphic

A dental bridge is a permanently fixed appliance that replaces one or more teeth in a row. Bridges need support from crowns or implants on either side of the gap.

Dental Implant 

Dental Implant Restorations

Implants are excellent replacements for missing or damaged teeth. They replace both the tooth's crown and the root, helping the jaw bone retain its strength and volume. They preserve the alignment of your teeth and provide reliable chewing function.

Dentures are a practical option for patients who are missing many teeth. Dentures may be fixed or removable.

Root Canal Therapy

Dental Instruments for Root Canal

In many cases, a root canal can preserve your decayed or broken tooth. Dr. Fallin removes infected pulp tissue and eliminates bacteria inside the tooth and the root canals. The doctor refills the tooth with a biocompatible material and adds a crown or large filling to protect the site from reinfection.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Extracted Tooth

Some patients may feel their teeth have too much damage for restorative dentistry, but we can provide full mouth reconstruction services using dentures, bridges, implants, and other appliances.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

What makes composite fillings better than metal fillings?
Composite and metal fillings each have their place in repairing teeth that have suffered decay. The dentist matches the composite resin's color to your existing tooth, providing a seamless appearance. Composite fillings also strengthen teeth in a way that metal fillings can't match. However, metal fillings may still be necessary because some cavities are too large for composites.
Why should I have a missing tooth replaced?
Missing teeth can cause trouble with chewing and speaking. They cause other teeth to drift, becoming crowded and crossed. Crooked teeth are more vulnerable to gum disease and tooth decay because they are more difficult to keep clean. If you have a missing tooth, you will probably feel self-conscious and may not want to share your smile with the world. You may have trouble chewing, and your speech may be affected.
Are root canals uncomfortable?
Root canals were once known for discomfort, but today, they are no worse than getting a large filling. Advances in root canal techniques and technology make the procedure quicker and increase your comfort level.
What makes dental implants special?
Dental implants are biocompatible replacements for a complete natural tooth. They contain a titanium post that bonds with the jawbone, creating a sturdy, lifelike restoration. On top, a stainless steel abutment holds a dental crown that provides a natural-looking replacement.
How long does it take to get dentures?
The denture process may take several months. It is a multi-step undertaking that ensures you have the best-fitting dentures possible. In total, dentures can take anywhere from three to six months.
How can restorative dentistry improve my quality of life?
When you complete restorative treatments, you can chew, speak clearly, and smile again without worrying about your damaged or missing teeth. Restorative dentistry also has side benefits for your appearance and self-esteem.
