When your teeth become broken, damaged, chipped, cracked, decayed, worn or just unappealing to look at, restorative dentistry becomes an effective way to restore your tooth’s structure, strength and aesthetic. Not only does your tooth’s health affect your overall wellness, but it can put you at risk for further health complications and even jeopardize your smile. At Smile On Dental Studio, we offer a selection of restorative dentistry options to restore your smile and improve your quality of life.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures
No longer do you need a mouth full of unsightly silver fillings if you have a cavity. With modern dentistry, we use mercury-free fillings made of composite material. We choose a color for the composite material to match your teeth for a smooth, undetectable finish. Your dentist uses composite material to fill cavities, or fix cracks or chips in your teeth for a natural finish.
Tooth fractures and decay rarely happen in a convenient and predictable way. In some cases, there is too much damage to composite fillings to restore your teeth but not enough to require a dental crown. In this case, porcelain onlays provide the perfect solution for teeth that need additional help without the complete coverage of a crown. Your dentist bonds the onlay in place to provide a natural-looking, functioning and feeling restoration.
Your smile is the first thing another person notices about you. If you have cosmetic damage or small chips in your teeth, it’s most likely affecting your smile and the way you feel about it. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite material to fix imperfections on your teeth as an inexpensive way to repair your damaged teeth.
When teeth become badly damaged, worn, fractured, cracked, or had a large root canal, a dental crown can restore your tooth back to complete function and strength. It’s colored and shaped to look completely natural and blend in with your surrounding teeth.
When your tooth becomes infected, you either need to extract it or have a root canal. By opting for a root canal, you can preserve your natural tooth. Root canals are painless procedures that involve removing the infected pulp from your tooth, disinfecting the tooth, and sealing the tooth.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in American adults. When you leave gum disease untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and other health conditions. Recognizing the signs of periodontal disease and early treatment can help you prevent tooth loss. Our strategic approach can help you maintain a beautiful and healthy smile.
