Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative or prosthodontics dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral disease. The goal of restorative dentistry is to keep your mouth healthy while preserving your natural teeth as much as possible.

What types of dental issues does restorative dentistry address?

Restorative dentistry aims to fix teeth that are damaged or missing. Whether your tooth damage is due to developmental defects or the result of a trauma-related event, a variety of restorative dental options exist to fulfill your need best. Dr. Benhuri can use various corrective dental options to do the following:

Fill cavities to prevent further decay

Dr. Benhuri offers composite fillings to restore the surface of your tooth. These enamel-colored restorations help you to maintain a natural-looking smile and can be completed in just one office visit.

Replace missing teeth

Dr. Benhuri replaces missing teeth using dental implants, bridges or dentures.

Strengthen and protect broken teeth

Dr. Benhuri protects and restores strength to your broken teeth with the help of dental crowns and bonding. Crowns cover the entire damaged part of your tooth, whether it’s been chipped or cracked. Composite bonding works to reshape your front teeth. Dr. Benhuri molds the enamel-colored putty to fill holes or chips in your teeth. The putty can even be used to fill small cavities.

Can restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry work together?

First, Dr. Benhuri performs restorative dentistry to fix functional issues, such as missing or broken teeth. Once that is taken care of, he works on the cosmetic look of your new tooth, reshaping or recoloring it to improve the overall look of your smile.
