Restorative Dentistry

Living with damaged teeth can be discouraging. Sometimes cracked teeth make it harder to bite, chew, or speak; sometimes broken teeth are painful. Decaying or discolored teeth can also negatively impact your self-confidence and make you more reluctant to smile.

Whatever the reason, our restorative dentistry can help. Our fillings and crowns can restore tooth function, eliminate pain, and make your smile look as good as new again!

Even if your teeth aren’t bothering you right now, it’s important to get them looked at. Restorative dentistry now can prevent any dental damage from getting worse in the future!


Fillings are one of the most common forms of restorative dentistry, and are often the best way to treat cavities. Cavities occur when tooth decay goes unchecked and creates a small hole in the tooth itself. These holes can be painful, and can lead to more serious tooth decay if not treated quickly.

When you receive a filling, your dentist will first numb the area around the tooth so you won’t feel any discomfort. Next, your dentist will carefully remove the decay, sanitize the area, and then fill the hole with the filling itself.

Your dental filling is designed to last, and can be color-matched to your natural teeth so no one will be able to tell you’ve had a filling at all!


Dental crowns are tight-fitting caps that fit over your natural teeth. Crowns are a great tool for covering up superficial damage to a tooth—such as cracks, chips, or other breaks—or for rebuilding and strengthening a badly damaged tooth.

Crowns are designed to look just like your natural teeth, and also don’t require any extra care compared to their neighbors. Crowns are strong, durable, and can fully repair or replace even an extremely worn-down tooth.
