Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry that deals with all the problems and issues associated with damaged and missing teeth. The most common options that are used for damaged teeth are fillings, crowns, implants etc. All of these restorative options help to bring back your natural smile and help you avoid any serious oral health conditions later. To summarize the importance of restorative dentistry procedures, there can be the following options:

  • Filling of gaps in the teeth and mouth helps in correct alignment and firm dental structure.
  • Replacing bad or damaged teeth can help in enhancing the health of your mouth and prevent you from any oral diseases.
  • Missing teeth affect your self-confidence, which makes restorative dentistry an important procedure.

Understanding Procedures for Restorative Dentistry

Dental Implants: Dental implants are an important part of restorative dentistry. This is because they act as tooth roots and are fixed directly to your jawbone. This might sound painful, but this can save you from a lot of oral diseases later. Through restorative dentistry, dental implants are fixed in your jawbone which makes slipping and adjustment perfect, thus, giving you the perfect solution.

Dental Bridges and Crowns: Dental Bridges help in filling the gap and missing teeth of your teeth set. There are multiple options in dental bridges and crowns, so that the teeth adjustment of your teeth set is perfect.

Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and Onlays help in the restoration of the teeth that are facing decay. These are made from tooth-colored materials and have a natural feel to blend into your natural set of teeth and give you the perfect natural smile.


Why You Should Consider Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is a lifesaver for people, who experience a lack of confidence, to fully express their smiles. Restorative dentistry also helps people in saving their teeth from oral diseases and to perfect the alignment and dental structure. It helps people to get back the confidence in their teeth. Restorative dentistry involves different procedures such as dental crowns, bridges, and veneers. The best part about restorative dentistry is that it allows you to get your materials customized and you can choose your materials even for some procedures according to your budget and choice. Besides the function of helping you in smiling and speaking and eating more openly and easily, there are also some other benefits that restorative dentistry brings you. There are also the following benefits:

  • Saves You from Dental Discomfort

Restorative dentistry procedures help you in getting rid of any discomfort in the teeth or gums. Sometimes when you have damaged teeth or cracked teeth gaps, there can be unhygienic problems in the teeth which can give rise to acute pains. In case these are left unattended, it can lead to serious infections. Getting restorative procedures done help you get rid of dental discomfort.

  • A Permanent Solution

Lack of attention to broken and damaged teeth can create serious problems, and sometimes, if they are left unattended, these can stay this way and even turn worse. Restorative dentistry helps in providing a permanent solution to damaged teeth. Most of the time, dental crowns are used. These crowns are made up of ceramic, porcelain crowns etc. These restorative items can help to get you a permanent solution as these can last up to even 15 years. These are perfect for senior citizens as they start experiencing wearing of teeth. 

  • Improves Teeth Appearance

As well as,  healing the damage to your teeth, restorative dentistry procedures can help you enhance your appearance. You can easily bring back the spark in your smile with some relatively pain-free procedures.  Restorative dentistry can also help with the alignment of your teeth ( i.e. through braces), which is a common problem among children and teenagers. The artificial crowns are made of the exact duplicate color of your teeth so that the adjustment can blend in and the teeth feel natural.


Restorative dentistry is one of the best ways to get back your confidence and to avoid oral health conditions and pain.  Restorative procedures are done to enhance not only the condition of your teeth but also to improve the aesthetic beauty of your smile. Restorative dentistry is done by specialized dentists, who have years of practice on their hands, so that you can get the best solution for your dental problems.
