Am I a Candidate for Restorative Dentistry?
Anyone with an incomplete smile or teeth that have been damaged by decay or trauma can benefit from restorative treatments. In some cases, a single type of treatment may be the best one for your smile, but we may suggest a combination of procedures to improve your oral health, function and appearance.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Missing teeth can give plaque and tartar extra places to hide in your smile and give your remaining teeth room to drift out of their proper positions. This can cause them to strike one another at the improper angles, leading to damage to your smile. A tooth that has been damaged by trauma or decay can be vulnerable to infection and could eventually require a root canal or an extraction. Along with cosmetic and functional benefits, restorative dentistry can prevent these problems from occurring and can help you maintain a healthy smile.
