Restorative dentistry is designed to treat tooth decay, fractured teeth, chipped teeth, and other dental issues. Dr. Pope will assess each dental condition and determine the appropriate restorative option for your case.
Fillings, or restorations, allow the dentist to repair teeth with cavities, reduce the risk of more serious dental procedures, and help eliminate tooth pain. There are a number of filling materials available, each with their benefits and limitations. Your dental team will discuss these options with you and determine the appropriate restorative material for your situation.
When a tooth has significant decay, has been root-canal treated, or has significant fractures, a crown is often the best solution to save your tooth. Crowns can help provide strength and stability to a tooth. Dr. Pope will help you make an educated decision about which type of crown is best for your situation.
A "bridge" utilizes the teeth on either side of a missing tooth to support a replacement. Bridges are excellent treatment options when the teeth on either side of an empty space have large fillings or crowns. In many cases, they are also reliable alternatives to dental implant placement.
Dental Implant Restoration
Placement of a dental implant(s) is a highly successful procedure designed to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or to stabilize a denture. Once the dental implant is in place, it can be restored to look like a natural tooth. Dental implants are often excellent alternatives to bridges because they do not require any unnecessary cutting, or preparation, of your natural teeth.
