Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry

What is restorative dentistry?

woman talking on the phone Restorative dentistry covers a wide range of dental procedures to correct or improve the appearance of a person's teeth and oral health. These procedures can treat a number of different dental issues, including cracked, chipped, or missing teeth. Restorative dentistry can also be used to address problems with alignment and treat gum disease.

There are many different procedures that we perform in our Alpharetta, GA dental office that can fall under the umbrella of restorative dentistry. 

Common Restorative Dental Procedures

Fillings: Fillings are used to repair minor tooth damage, such as cavities. The filling material is placed in the cavity and then hardened to restore the tooth's strength and shape.

Crowns: Crowns are used to cover a tooth that is too damaged to be repaired with a filling. The crown encases the entire tooth and can be made from materials like porcelain or zirconia.

Bridges: Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge spans the space where the teeth are missing and is anchored in place by adjacent teeth.

Implants: Implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants are titanium metal posts used to replace the roots of missing teeth. After placement, the implant must be given time to heal. Once the dental implant has healed, a replacement tooth (called a crown) is placed on top of the implant.
