Where To Find Local Restorative Dental Care Near Me
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry, sometimes referred to as reconstructive care, involves procedures and treatments meant to restore the full health and function of the mouth, teeth, and gums. A side benefit of restorative dental care is how it can also result in positive and significant cosmetic benefits, restoring a patient’s smile to a state of beauty.
When you allow oral health conditions, including tooth decay, gum/periodontal disease, tooth loss, or aged dental work to remain untreated, it can result in weakened teeth, gums, and bone. If this happens, dental restorations can help restore teeth which are damaged as well as help restore surrounding tissues like gums and bone. Restorative dentistry can help keep teeth healthy, prevent them from shifting, prevent bone deterioration, and keep your gums healthy. All of these will allow the patient to eat and speak normally once again. From a cosmetic standpoint, restorative dentistry can fill gaps where there are missing teeth, help maintain facial fullness, and return confidence to the patient so they smile more.

Our restorative dental treatments may include:
- Dental crown – sometimes called a “cap,” a ceramic dental crown covers the visible portion of the tooth and provides stability and protection for a tooth that may have had root canal treatment or has decay, damage, or a larger, unsightly filling. Crowns are also used to complete a dental implant or to anchor a dental bridge.
- Dental bridge – aptly named, a dental bridge spans the space created by missing teeth. Bridges may be secured on either side to natural, healthy teeth or to dental implants. They can keep surrounding teeth from shifting into the gap where a tooth has been lost.
- Dental implant – the most permanent and stable treatment for tooth loss, a dental implant replaces the root of the tooth, which protects the bone and prevents bone loss and shifting of teeth. Typically, a dental implant involves a titanium post, which is placed into the jawbone and it naturally fuses to the bone for ultimate stability and function. After an implant is securely anchored, it is topped with a dental crown.
At Living Wellness Dental Northland, we can custom design, create, and place dental crowns in one visit using convenient and precise CEREC technology.
