Restorative Dentistry Q&A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a dental specialty that’s dedicated to restoring your mouth to its fully functional and aesthetically complete state. With restorative dentistry, Dr. Lin can:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Enhance the appearance of unsightly teeth
  • Improve teeth that are damaged or decayed

Fantastic Family Dental uses the best tools, techniques, and products, like Straumann® implants, to ensure that your restored smile lasts as long as possible.

What are some examples of restorative dentistry?

Some of the restorative treatments that Dr. Lin and Fantastic Family Dental offer include:

Crowns

A crown is an artificial tooth cap that Dr. Lin permanently bonds to an existing root structure, like a tooth or a dental implant. Your crown covers up all of your tooth above the gumline, where it can protect your tooth, strengthen it, or enhance its appearance.

Bridges

A bridge is a fixed dental prosthetic device that replaces a missing tooth with a pontic (fake tooth) attached to crowns on either side. Dr. Lin seals the crowns to your abutment teeth (the teeth adjacent to your missing teeth), where they hold the pontic in place as it bridges the empty space between your teeth.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a more technologically advanced method for replacing missing teeth. They’re artificial tooth roots that Dr. Lin surgically embeds in your jawbone, where they’re fused with your bone tissue and provide a sturdy support for a crown, bridge, or denture.

White fillings

Fillings are a classic solution for treating cavities caused by tooth decay. The procedure involves drilling out any decay in your tooth, then filling in the resulting hole with a malleable filling material. Fantastic Family Dental uses a filling material that’s the same color as your tooth enamel, enabling Dr. Lin to treat your cavity without compromising the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

What is restorative dentistry treatment like?

Every restorative treatment is slightly different and entails a slightly different procedure, so speak to the team at Fantastic Family Dental to get more specific information on a particular treatment. In general, however, Dr. Lin takes the time and care to ensure your procedure is quick, effective, and comfortable so that you can leave her office with a smile that looks as good as it feels.
