What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry procedures involve repairing damaged or decayed teeth or replacing missing teeth or teeth that are too damaged to repair. Common restorative dentistry procedures include:

  • Cavity fillings
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns
  • Dentures

Repairing or replacing damaged and missing teeth not only restores their function and makes it easier to eat and speak, but restorative dentistry also improves your appearance, which can improve your self-esteem and self-confidence.

Can restorative dentistry replace missing teeth?

Roslyn Family Dental provides restorative dentistry solutions whether you’re missing one, several, or even all of your teeth.

The following restorative dentistry procedures give you an option when  teeth are damaged beyond repair or missing altogether:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures

The experienced team at Roslyn Family Dental discusses your dental goals and helps you decide which method of restorative dentistry is right for you through an individualized treatment plan.

What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry offers many benefits, ranging from cosmetic to functional, including:

Cosmetic improvements

Replacing missing teeth improves your smile and restores your confidence. When you repair badly decayed teeth with fillings or crowns, your teeth immediately look healthier. 


Dental crown restorations cover your natural teeth above the gumline. Crowns cover teeth too damaged for a filling, a tooth that requires a root canal, and teeth that are misshapen or fractured, to restore their function, strength, and appearance.

Structural improvements

A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth with an artificial tooth. The artificial tooth “bridges the gap” left by a missing tooth. A dental bridge is permanently attached to the teeth on either side of your missing tooth and prevents your teeth from moving into the gap of the missing tooth.

Increased self-confidence

Tooth damage or loss causes depression and decreased self-esteem for many people. If you hide your smile due to missing or damaged teeth, restorative dentistry can give you a smile you’re proud of.
