What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dental treatments are those that restore and repair teeth to a state of good health. Restorative dental treatments provided by our experienced dentists also enable patients with missing teeth to complete their smiles and restore function.

Examples of restorative dental care include fillings or crowns that halt the progression of decay. Dental restorations also protect cracked or fractured teeth from further trauma and potential loss, and dental implants and bridges restore incomplete smiles.

Benefits of Restorative Dental Treatments

Restorative dental treatments offer functional and health benefits, in addition to keeping your smile looking beautiful. Specific benefits include:

  • Prevents decay from spreading
  • Strengthens weakened teeth
  • Repairs cracked teeth
  • Protects vulnerable teeth from infections
  • Restores gaps in smiles due to missing teeth
  • Improves oral health
  • Bolsters self-confidence

Comprehensive Restorative Dental Treatments in Amarillo

At Amarillo Dental Associates, Dr. Street and Dr. Hyde provide comprehensive restorative treatments and procedures for all ages at our modern dental practice.

Composite Fillings

Composite Fillings
Composite fillings use tooth-colored material to restore teeth with cavities and maintain a natural appearance. Once the decay is removed, the tooth is filled with a composite material which is then cured using a specialized light to harden the material. Composite fillings can be done in one visit.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays & Onlays
An inlay or onlay is a partial crown restoration that can be placed when there is not sufficient tooth structure to support a filling but enough tooth structure left that a full crown is not needed. Inlays/onlays are made of porcelain or gold, and they aesthetically and functionally replace the missing tooth structure.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers the outside of a tooth that is cracked, broken, worn down, or severely decayed. Dental crowns are usually completed in two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared (shaved down) and an impression is taken. A temporary crown is placed while the permanent crown is fabricated. During the second visit, the permanent crown is carefully fitted and then cemented into place.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridge Graphic

A bridge can replace missing teeth without the use of a denture or dental implant. A bridge is composed of two crowns and a replacement tooth or teeth. Crowns are typically placed on the teeth on either side of the space, with the fabricated tooth or teeth attached in between.

For multiple missing teeth, an implant may be used to anchor the bridge.

Dental Implants

Dental Implant Restorations

Dental implants replace missing teeth and protect existing teeth by helping to preserve bone structure. Dental implants are composed of three pieces: a small screw made of a biocompatible metal called titanium, an abutment that connects the screw, and the final restoration.

A denture is a replacement for multiple missing teeth within the same (upper or lower) arch. A denture differs from a crown or bridge in that it does not rely on an existing tooth structure, and it completely replaces the missing teeth.

There are several different types of dentures:

  • Full or Partial
  • Removable or Fixed
  • Traditional or Implant-Supported

At Amarillo Dental Associates, extractions are always a last resort. But certain injuries to teeth simply cannot be repaired. Teeth that crack beneath the gum line, for example, will need to be extracted and replaced with a restorative treatment such as a dental implant or bridge.

Frequently Asked Questions About Restorative Dentistry

Are fillings visible?
Composite fillings are typically not noticeable, as our dentists match the composite resin color to your natural teeth. Composite fillings are more common today than older, silver fillings, which were easily visible.
Do dental crowns look natural?
Today’s dental crowns are more natural-looking than ever. Porcelain and Zirconia crowns are specifically created for each person, matching the natural teeth in size, shape, and color.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Unfortunately in most cases, dental insurance does not pay for dental implants. At Amarillo Dental Associates, we accept all credit cards, and third-party financing from Cherry to CareCredit to make restorative dental care such as implants more affordable.
How long does a dental bridge last?
With excellent oral hygiene habits at home, and regular dental exams and cleanings every six months, a dental bridge may last 10-15 years or longer before needing to be replaced.
What are the options for replacing a missing tooth?
If you are missing a single tooth, or several consecutive teeth in a row, dental bridges and dental implants are both great restorative treatments. If you are missing most of your teeth on the upper or lower arch, a fixed, implant-supported denture is often a great restorative option.
Will dental insurance pay for a dental crown?
Most dental insurance plans do help cover dental crowns. Each policy is a bit different, so it’s best to confirm specific coverage with your carrier so that you understand your financial responsibility.
Are removable or retained dentures more comfortable?
Retained, also known as fixed dentures are generally more comfortable because they do not slip, which can cause gum irritation. They also help preserve the jaw bone to maintain your facial appearance.
How long will it take to get a dental implant?
You may be able to place a dental implant very quickly following an extraction. If you’ve been missing a tooth for some time, and need bone grafting to support an implant, the process may take longer. Your dentist will be able to provide you with an accurate timeline based on your unique circumstances.
