With Restorative Dentistry, You Can Say Goodbye to Your Damaged Teeth and Enjoy Food
You may not have time for a dental emergency, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore it. Cavities and other oral health problems only worsen over time if left untreated.
For instance, a missing tooth can cause problems with your bite and lead to other dental issues down the road. Cavities can also be excruciatingly painful, leading to more serious health issues if left untreated.
You may need restorative dentistry if your teeth experience trauma or damage because of dental injuries. Such concerns can result in decay, cavities, tooth loss, or other oral damage. Comfort Care Dental offers restorative dentistry services to quickly and efficiently treat your oral health concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
While most people believe that extracting a cracked or broken tooth is a much easier and more straightforward solution, dental professionals say otherwise.
We want every patient to have a healthy mouth by helping them to improve their oral health through proper dental care. If you have a decayed tooth or cavity, your dentist will first determine the case, and if a tooth extraction is not necessary, they will perform teeth replacements. These include tooth fillings, crowns, dentures, and bridges.
Restorative dentistry aims to repair damaged teeth or replace missing ones. If your other pearly whites aren’t aligned properly, it can make it hard to bite down and look good.
When your dentist detects that you have a cavity in your tooth, they might recommend tooth fillings after removing the decayed part. This avoids the need for an extraction to preserve your natural tooth. In some cases, the dentist may notice small holes in a tooth even if it’s not causing any pain; dental fillings may be used to fill that part to avoid the accumulation of food debris that can cause tooth decay.
Moreover, if the tooth has fractures, cracks, or chips because of a sudden impact, dental fillings can replace the lost part and support the tooth for years.
The purpose of the treatment is to avoid worsening the dental damage and requiring costly procedures. Without immediate action, it may reach the tooth’s root, which may necessitate tooth extraction and another teeth replacement to replace the lost ones.
- Having a missing tooth/teeth can affect the appearance of your smile and can be a source of concern. Fortunately, dentures have helped many individuals bring back their attractive smiles. These artificial teeth can look like your natural teeth, giving you a full set of teeth again.
- Dentures are removable. This makes them easy to keep clean and remove when necessary.
- Wearing dentures can restore the function of your lost tooth.
- You can now enjoy foods that you used to love before you lost your teeth. Yet, it’s important to talk to your dentist about what foods you should eat in moderation to keep your dentures last as long as possible.
- Losing teeth can affect the features of your face. Most people experience sagging of their skin due to tooth loss. With dentures, your facial muscles can maintain and prevent changes that can make you look older.
- Certain words can be difficult to pronounce if you have missing teeth, and dentures may reduce this problem.
- Your dentist will use CAD (computer aided design) and CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) to take digital images of your affected tooth and create a digital model of your teeth/tooth.
- A machine will take the digital model and create a 3D tooth using ceramic material. This process may take only a few minutes.
- Adjustments and polishing may be necessary before your dentist tries to place the newly created CEREC crowns in your mouth.
The placement of a traditional dental bridge may require two appointments and usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
- During the initial appointment, the dentist will reshape the adjacent teeth that act as an abutment for the bridge. This may require the removal of some enamel (tooth surface) and a dentist to make a room.
- Then, they will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the dental laboratory. They will use the mould as a model to manufacture your dental bridge, false tooth, and crown. In the meantime, the dentist will place a temporary bridge to protect the prepared abutment teeth while the lab creates your bridge.
- The second appointment involves removing the temporary bridge and placing the permanent dental bridge. Your dentist will ensure it fits comfortably and make any necessary adjustments.
Some health insurance policies provide coverage for restorative dental treatments as they are often considered medically necessary.
However, we recommend consulting your insurance company to confirm if your current plan includes dental services under restorative dentistry.
Dentures are one of the most common options for replacing lost teeth, but there are other ways to restore your smile. Several alternatives are available, and your dentist can help you make an informed decision on which type is best suited for your case:
- Resin bonded bridge
- Dental implants
- Implant-supported dentures.
- Implant-retained dentures
- Tooth supported fixed bridge
