Restorative Dentistry: You've Heard Us Say It, but What Does It Mean?

Do you have damaged, worn, or missing teeth? The thing these three problems have in common is that they can all be resolved with high-quality restorative dentistry in West Chester, OH.

The dictionary defines the word “restorative” as having the ability to restore health, strength, or a feeling of well-being. A restorative dentist is the professional you turn to for treatments that return health to a smile that has been compromised by wear, disease, trauma.

Treatments Used for Restorative Dentistry

Since everyone has unique needs, restorative dentistry may involve a single treatment as simple as a tooth-colored filling.  Or, your dentist may determine that it's necessary to combine multiple procedures to help you achieve your goal of a healthier smile. 

The goal of restorative dentistry is to return your smile to full health, beauty, and comfortable function. Treatments include: 

  • Tooth-colored fillings 
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Implant-retained dentures
  • Full or partial removable dentures

What are Aesthetic Dental Restorations?

These days, with access to advanced materials and state-of-the-art technology, virtually any procedure we perform improves not only the strength but the beauty of your smile.

For example, an all-porcelain dental crown will strengthen and protect a damaged tooth, but the material also improves its appearance. Using premium materials, your dentist recreates a healthy, natural-looking smile that should stand up to a lifetime of use.
