Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases and problems related to the mouth. Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring teeth that have experienced decay, are cracked or chipped, or are discolored, and it can also refer to treating gum tissue and surrounding teeth after a tooth has fallen out.

What restorative dentistry services are available?

You and your Philadelphia Dental dentist figure out a restoration management plan that addresses any oral issues you may be experiencing. You may want to replace missing teeth, update the appearance of your teeth, or protect teeth from future damage and decay.

Solutions provided by restorative dentistry include common procedures such as:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Fillings
  • Implants
  • Dentures
  • Veneers

The dentists at Philadelphia Dental walk you through all of your options and recommend a solution that fits your needs. The team makes sure to give you the results you’re looking for.

What are the signs of needing restorative dentistry services?

Your Philadelphia Dental dentist works with you to figure out if you need restorative services. However, if you’ve been experiencing tooth decay from gum disease or discomfort because of tooth shape or empty spaces, or if you grind your teeth, these may be signs that you need restorative services.

How do I know what services I need?

If you have a cavity, which your dentist is able to determine with an exam and X-ray, you most likely need to get a filling. If you have a damaged, cracked, or chipped tooth, a crown can be applied to restore the tooth. Veneers are a permanent option to improve the appearance of chipped or discolored teeth. Sometimes, a combination of bridges and crowns is required for full restoration of tooth function.

Depending on your price point, different options may be presented by your dentist for you to compare and contrast. For example, if you have lost some or all of your teeth, your dentist will discuss the pros and cons of getting dental implants versus dentures to restore your smile.
