Restorative dentistry is the study, diagnosis and integrated management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting structures and the rehabilitation of the dentition to functional and aesthetic requirements of the individual.
Tooth colored fillings, also known as composite resin, are placed for mild to moderate tooth decay. They contain no metal or mercury, and come in many shades to be able to match your tooth. They are conservative and highly esthetic.
Crowns and Bridges
A deep cavity, old filling, or broken tooth may require more than a filling. In some cases, a dental crown is required to restore strength, shape, and appearance to a damaged tooth.
If you are missing a tooth, and not a candidate for a dental implant, a bridge may be considered to replace a missing tooth; this will involve crowning the adjacent teeth.
