Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is a broad term used to describe the types of filling and restoration materials and procedures. Restorative Dentistry uses composite materials to replace, repair, or maintain a patients’ oral health. Restorative Dentistry ‘restores’ teeth to better physical shape, esthetics, and function.

The dentists in our practice give patients choices regarding materials and procedures to restore teeth. These choices are based on location in the mouth and the suitability of the restorative material choice. One of the great benefits of restorative dentistry is it gives the dentist the ability to recreate something artistically, using these materials, and restore it as closely as possible to its natural shape and function.
