Restorative Dental Treatment from Experience Dental

Your Experience Matters Most

Patient-Centered Dental Care in the Heart of Boulder

Dental problems can happen to anyone, even patients who are meticulous about caring for their smile. Fortunately, when a tooth has been injured, restorative dentistry can help. Restorative dental care is the art of creating high-quality esthetic fillings, inlays, onlays, crowns, and bridges out of composite, porcelain, zirconia, or noble metals. At Experience Dental, our trusted team of dentists pride themselves on the high-quality work and compassionate care we offer each of our patients, as well as the state-of-the-art materials and labs we utilize. If you require restorative dental treatment, here’s what you should know before scheduling your appointment at Experience Dental.

Why Would Someone Need Restorative Dental Work?

A patient may need restorative work if they fracture, crack, chip or lose a tooth, have a cavity, or have sensitive teeth. Basically, if you need some kind of tooth restoration, you will want to talk to a restorative dentist. Sensitive teeth may indicate a cavity or areas where tooth material has been damaged or lost. Additionally, restorations are sometimes needed under a patient’s crown. Restorative dentistry can also be used to replace one or more of a patient’s missing teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Having Restorative Dental Work Done?

Restorative dentistry has a number of benefits, including:

  • Improving appearance of damaged or missing teeth
  • Restoring comfort of daily activities, such as chewing, speaking, and cleaning
  • Better function of teeth
  • Improving oral health

What Kinds of Problems Would Restorative Dentistry Fix?

Restorative dentistry restores cavities, chips, and missing teeth. It is required any time natural tooth material is lost or damaged and needs to be replaced. It can prevent small cavities from becoming large cavities or, in severe cases, it can prevent the loss of a tooth entirely. It’s best to take care of small cavities before they get out of hand and turn into an infected tooth. Fillings and crowns can also help stop the spread of cracks and prevent a weak tooth from breaking completely.

Do You Need to See a Specialist for This Service?

A specialist is rarely required to do restorative work. In most circumstances, a general dentist is best suited to do restorative work.

What Procedures Do You Offer That Are Classified as Restorative Dentistry?

  • Bridges
  • Implant restorations

How is Restorative Dentistry Different from Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic and restorative dentistry are often used interchangeably, but they have distinct differences. Cosmetic dentistry is primarily used to improve the aesthetics of one’s smile that is otherwise healthy and functional. Restorative dentistry is used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth to regain function, strength, and extend the life of teeth. Many cosmetic cases require both restorative and cosmetic work, and many patients that come to Experience Dental for restorative work show interest in undergoing cosmetic care as well. Whether we are doing cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry, our dentists always strive to reach an aesthetically pleasing result that functions and helps to improve the smile and health of our patients.

How Expensive is Restorative Dental Work?

The cost of your restorative dental work will depend on the treatment you receive, as well as your dental insurance policy.
