If your teeth are worn or damaged, your dentist may suggest a restorative dentistry treatment plan to hash out the issues with your smile and correct them to give you a beautiful, functional grin. However, understanding restorative dentistry and the ins-and-outs of its procedures is crucial to making an informed decision when it comes to your dental health.

What is a restorative dentist?
Restoration dentistry focuses mainly on the function of your smile and aims to take your broken, worn, or damaged teeth and allow them to work correctly once again. A restorative dentist has extensive post-schooling training in this facet of dentistry and often undergoes ongoing education on the subject.
Can restorative dentistry help me?
Restorative dentistry can achieve many goals in various situations. If you have a broken tooth, a dental restoration such as a crown can cover the tooth to protect it against daily use and ensure that it remains intact. A restoration can also help in the case of a missing tooth. A dental bridge fills the gap and is held in place by a crown on either side. The crowns attach permanently to the healthy teeth around the gap.
