What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry refers to any dental procedure that keeps your mouth healthy and fully functioning, and can include a number of procedures. For example, cavity fillings, root canals, crowns and dental implants are all restorative procedures.
There are two reasons why restorative dentistry is necessary for many people: to restore the function of the teeth and to restore the appearance of the teeth.
When Would I Need Restorative Dentistry?
Realistically, every patient will need a restorative procedure in their lifetime. Whether it be a broken tooth, cracked teeth, facial trauma, missing teeth, deterioration of a previously placed restoration, periodontal disease or teeth decay, our Canyon Rim dentists are ready to help you with any and all of your dental needs.
It is important to prevent the need for restorative procedures through regular visits to our office to carefully monitor your dental health.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures Offered at Canyon Rim Dental
We offer several measures to restore and repair your smile. Every patient has differing needs and lifestyles that will benefit in different ways with the following procedures:
Dental crowns are custom tooth-shaped caps that are placed on top of an existing but damaged, missing or abnormally shaped tooth. The crown is typically made of metal or porcelain, and is cemented in place. This procedure can help restore both function and appearance to any tooth.
When a tooth is afflicted with disease, decay, or is missing altogether, a tooth implant is a great replacement option. Teeth implants are permanent fixtures placed in the jawbone, helping stimulate and preserve your bone structure. This restorative procedure has a 98% success rate and is widely recognized as the #1 recommendation to replace missing teeth permanently.
With the loss of one or more teeth comes the need for a more comprehensive solution. Implant-supported dentures use the same permanent fixtures as tooth implants, but with the addition of a denture device that is placed on top. Function and appearance is restored through this permanent solution as well.
Dental bridges are less permanent and simply “bridge” the gap between two healthy teeth. Two crowns are placed on the two healthy teeth and a “bridge” tooth is connected in between. These devices are usually made of a combination of metals and porcelain or ceramics. For a less costly and a more temporary solution, dental bridges could be the answer for you.
Sometimes the tooth is generally intact but has areas of decay or discoloration. These symptoms can easily be treated through tooth-colored fillings. The biggest advantage of this procedure is that the composite fillings can easily be adjusted to match the shade of your natural teeth. Tooth-colored fillings can be a great restorative option.
Be sure to follow our dentists’ recommendations after any restorative procedure to prevent dislodge and to promote proper healing.
