At A New Smile Dental Group, we offer our patients access to the latest in restorative dentistry. These procedures are simply designed to improve the overall function of the smile. Our doctors believe that all dentistry is essentially cosmetic in nature, so many of our restorative treatments also improve the esthetics of the smile as well. With restorative dentistry, you can enjoy a whole and stunning smile.

Repairing Damaged Teeth

The most conservative form of restorative dentistry is a filling. We offer natural looking fillings using a metal-free composite resin. A filling is placed on a tooth suffering from decay. We also use the same material to repair chipped teeth in a procedure known as dental bonding.

In addition to fillings, we offer crowns, inlays, and onlays. These restorations are made using a durable and lifelike ceramic material. Crowns fit over the visible portion of a tooth, completely restoring the tooth to full function and health. Inlays and onlays repair specific portions of a tooth. These are recommended for teeth that require more than a filling but don’t need a full crown placed.

Replacing Lost Teeth

Missing teeth can lead to a number of serious complications, including misalignment and even the deterioration of the jawbone, causing a person to appear aged and suffer from additional tooth loss. To keep your smile whole and healthy, we offer a number of options for replacing missing teeth, including:

  • Dental Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Dental Implants

The type of dental prosthetic we prescribe will depend on your unique smile and the cause of your tooth loss. Our doctors will carefully your teeth and gums before discussing your options. If you have any questions or concerns about replacing missing teeth, or if you would like to know more about our other restorative options, then contact our office today.
