Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry can help you get back your smile and have beautiful, functional teeth that you can feel great about. Here are some of the best benefits of restorative dentistry:

  • Discomfort from cracked or broken teeth will be reduced or eliminated. When we restore a broken or infected tooth, your pain will begin to decrease immediately and should resolve completely over time. You’ll be able to eat the foods you love without worrying about dental pain.
  • No one will be able to tell that you’ve had dental work done. At Green Dentistry, we use natural composite resin to create tooth-colored restorations. They’re extremely realistic, and no one will know that your teeth have been restored unless you tell them.
  • You’ll protect your oral health. Tooth loss can cause the jaw bone underneath the missing tooth to begin to degrade or deteriorate. Restorative dentistry helps protect your oral health by reducing the risk of bone loss in addition to tooth loss.
  • Many dental restorations can be done in as little as one day. In many cases, you can visit our office and leave the same day with your custom-made restoration. This means you can take less time off work and feel less self-conscious about your smile during the healing period.

When Would I Need Restorative Dentistry?

While restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry tend to go hand-in-hand, restorative dentistry is largely focused on returning or preserving the health and functionality of a patient’s teeth, especially in the case of cracked, broken, or missing teeth. Alternatively, cosmetic dentistry is focused on the appearance of the teeth and the patient’s overall smile.

You may need restorative dentistry if:

  • You are missing one or more teeth.
  • An adult tooth has fallen out.
  • You’ve broken a tooth.
  • You have tooth decay.
  • You are experiencing tooth pain.
  • One or more of your teeth are cracked.
  • You’ve experienced a dental injury.
  • Your teeth become sensitive to cold or hot foods and drinks.

Often, cosmetic dental procedures are done at the same time to restore the appearance of a patient’s smile in addition to its function. For example, a restorative dentist can bond a cracked or broken tooth but may also reshape it and the others around it to create a more natural-looking smile.

“The staff and doctors are super friendly! Dr. Patel was kind and walked me through every concern I had for my appointment. I love that they offer so many different services, like teeth whitening, deep cleaning, and even a dental spa!”

DID YOU KNOW

Mercury’s toxic effects have been known for over 2,000 years. So why are so many dentists still using silver amalgam fillings? At Green Dentistry, we use only biocompatible, mercury-free composite fillings to create natural, healthy tooth restorations.

Restorative Dentistry Services

Mercury-Free Composite Fillings

Over 90% of adults will suffer from tooth decay at some point in their lives. We focus on early detection of cavities and tooth decay, allowing us to use minimally-invasive dental restorations like smaller fillings and to remove less of the healthy tooth structure.

Our dental fillings are:

  • Free from mercury and other toxins
  • 100% biocompatible
  • Designed to match the color of your natural teeth
  • Built to last for years

Mercury-Free, Metal-Free Crowns & Bridges

Cracked, chipped, broken, infected, or damaged teeth may require a more advanced treatment to restore their natural function and appearance. Depending on your needs, Dr. Patel may recommend a crown, dental bridge, or other dental restoration to repair your damaged teeth.

Our dental crowns and bridges are:

  • Made without mercury or toxic metals
  • Designed to look and function like your natural teeth
  • Placed using minimally invasive techniques
  • Durable and designed to last

Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a durable, rock-solid foundation for bridges, crowns, and dentures. They are the best way to replace lost teeth and with proper care, can last a lifetime.

Our dental implants are:

  • Made from space-age and biocompatible titanium
  • Designed to function as the perfect setting for one or more crowns, a dental bridge, or dentures

Frequently Asked Questions

Generally speaking, missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible. Your jawbone is designed to act as a solid foundation for your teeth. When a tooth is missing, the jawbone begins to lose integrity, a process known as resorption. Not restoring a missing tooth can lead to lifelong health problems and irreversible bone loss. We design your dental restoration to work with your body and provide long-lasting, beautiful solutions that look and function just like your natural teeth.

Mercury is a toxin and can cause many serious health problems. Dr. Patel, an IAOMT dentist, is trained in the safe removal and disposal of mercury fillings. She uses only biocompatible resin to replace mercury fillings and create tooth-colored composite fillings. The process only takes about 30 minutes! Not only are composite fillings healthier, but they look better too!
