Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry? 

Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry focused on restoring the health of your smile. Dr. Primero specializes in restorative dentistry and routinely helps patients restore the look, feel, and function of discolored, damaged, or even missing teeth. 

What restorative dentistry procedures are offered? 

At The Smile Fairy Dental Spa, Dr. Primero and her team offer a variety of restorative dentistry procedures, including: 

Crowns

Made of durable porcelain, crowns are protective caps that help restore damaged, discolored, or decayed teeth. They can also be attached to implants and are sometimes used to replace missing teeth. Dr. Primero uses CEREC® technology to deliver permanent crowns in just one in-office visit.  

Bridges

These are sets of prosthetic porcelain teeth that are used to “bridge” gaps in your smile. Typically, bridges are either bonded to surrounding teeth or can be attached to implants. A set of bridges closely mirrors the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. 

Fillings

When cavities — small holes in your teeth — threaten your oral health and create a risk of further decay, fillings are often the best line of defense. Dr. Primero uses a putty-like material hardened with light technology to fill cavities and restore the health and appearance of your teeth. 

Dentures 

These restorations are prosthetic teeth with fleshy gum-like bases that can be used to replace missing teeth. Full dentures can replace an entire lost arch of teeth, while partial dentures can replace just a few missing teeth. 

What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?  

When your teeth are damaged by such issues as discoloration or decay, restorative dentistry procedures can help preserve the health and function of your natural teeth. Without these vital procedures, you could see your teeth deteriorate and ultimately be dealing with tooth loss. 

More than 178 million Americans are actually missing at least one tooth. Restorative dentistry provides incredible benefits for you if you’re dealing with gaps in your smile. 

Those gaps can lead to harmful tooth shifting, which means your teeth natural shift over into empty spaces. This can cause bone loss, decay, and even severe gum disease over time. 

Dr. Primero’s restorative dentistry offerings, such as bridges and full or partial dentures, can fill gaps and prevent oral health issues.
