What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a dental specialty that focuses on repairing and restoring badly damaged oral structures. Dr. Hindi customizes each restoration, ensuring all patients receive a functioning and natural-looking smile. Our restorative treatments are used to fix the following dental issues:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Decayed, damaged, or worn down teeth
- Infected or abscessed teeth
- Any number of missing teeth
No matter what your dental situation is, our team at Sterling Heights Dentistry will work with you to give you back a beautiful, healthy smile.
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
As the leading restoration in dentistry, dental implants are specially designed to mimic your natural teeth for a beautiful, fully functional smile. Implants can replace any number of teeth, restoring both the appearance and health of your smile. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone for maximum support and stability. Best of all, implants can last a lifetime when properly cared for.
Are you missing most or all of your teeth? If so, dentures are a natural-looking restorative treatment that can give you a full smile again. Each set of custom dentures is made from acrylic resin for maximum comfort and support. For your convenience, we offer both partial and full dentures.
Unlike traditional dentures of the past, Dr. Hindi has invested in cutting-edge technology and materials to ensure that your dentures look great and feel comfortable. Our goal is for every patient to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile!
As an affordable solution to tooth loss, dental bridges are fixed, non-removable restorations designed to bridge the gap between missing teeth. Dental bridges are an ideal solution for patients missing one tooth or multiple adjacent teeth. Bridges use dental crowns on either end with one or more prosthetic teeth, called pontics, in the middle. The crowns bond to your existing teeth on either side of the gap so that the replacement teeth fit perfectly in the middle, restoring full function to your smile.
Dental crowns are custom-created porcelain caps that cover a natural tooth to repair any existing damage. They’re designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth and are used to treat a variety of dental issues. Porcelain crowns can protect cracked or broken teeth, mask a severely worn-down tooth, support a tooth after root canal therapy, and even aid in tooth replacement when paired with a bridge or dental implant.
Tooth-colored fillings are one of the most common dental treatments. They’re used to reshape and strengthen a tooth’s structure after decay has been removed. We use tooth-colored, composite resin fillings for treating cavities at our Sterling Heights practice. These restorations are long-lasting, durable, and blend in with the natural shade of your tooth, so no one will be able to tell that you have them!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Many patients will need to have their wisdom teeth removed to maintain good oral health. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that usually erupt during the late teens or early twenties. In most cases, the wisdom teeth don’t have enough room to grow properly, creating the need for removal. Dr. Hindi can safely and effectively remove your wisdom teeth to restore your oral health.
Root Canal Therapy
If you’re suffering from a badly decayed or infected tooth, you may need root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a fast procedure where Dr. Hindi will go inside the tooth and remove the diseased pulp, disinfect the area, and fill your tooth with gutta-percha to prevent further infections. Root canal treatment can save your tooth from extraction and relieve you of the severe tooth pain you’ve been experiencing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Common restorative materials include composite resin, porcelain, ceramic, gold alloys, and acrylic. Dental cement, like resin and zinc oxide, adheres to restorations. Your dentist will recommend the optimal material for durability, aesthetics, and comfort.
Yes, most restorative treatments involve an initial consultation, a second visit to place the restoration, and a follow-up appointment to ensure proper fit and function. More complex procedures like dental bridges or implants require several consultations and steps for an optimal outcome.
Often, restorations like fillings and crowns can be repaired if they become damaged or defective rather than completely replaced. However, extensive damage or decay may require a new restoration. Discuss repair versus replacement options with your dentist.
Coverage varies, but most dental insurance plans at least partially cover basic restorative care like fillings and simple extractions. More advanced procedures like crowns and bridges may involve copays or deductibles. Ask your dentist for an insurance estimate beforehand.
