What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry offers more than just an improved smile. By replacing missing and damaged teeth, you protect your oral health by:

When you have lost or missing teeth, it can hurt your confidence and impact how you see yourself and how others see you. Restorative dentistry can give you a boost of confidence and improve your overall appearance.

What do restorative dentistry treatments entail?

Every restorative dentistry plan requires different procedures and may require several steps or multiple visits. Before initiating your treatment plan, Dr. Zhang answers any questions and helps you understand every step of the process.  

Before you can begin the restoration process, you may need to treat the underlying cause of your lost or missing teeth or fix unresolved dental issues. Your initial treatment plan may include:

  • Tooth extraction 
  • Antibiotic treatment 
  • Cavity removal 
  • Healing time 
  • Root canal 
  • Periodontal deep cleaning
  • Dental cleaning
  • Gum treatment 

Once your teeth, gums, and bone are as healthy as possible, Dr. Zhang begins your customized restoration plan. Your plan may include digital X-rays, digital impressions, accurate color matching, and customized device creation using a specialized dental lab.
