Restorative Dentistry


Reviewed by: Dr. Kristen Dority

Restorative dentistry is the broad term applied to any filling, inlay, crown, bridge, partial denture, complete denture, or implant that restores or replaces lost tooth structure, whole teeth and/or oral tissues.

Detailed Description
Restorative dentistry replaces both function and aesthetics lost due to tooth decay, tooth loss, and periodontal disease.

Advances in both technique and materials allow dentists and specialists significant greater ability to restoring the cosmetic appearance of compromised teeth. Adhesive dentistry is a process by which restorations are chemically bonded to natural tooth structure. Porcelain and composite resin restorations closely match the color and translucency of natural teeth, are metal free, and offer many advantages over historic types of treatment. State-of-the-art materials used in restorative dentistry do not sacrifice tooth strength and durability.

Yes it is worth it. As long as the result is that you have whiter teeth.
