What Is Restorative Dentistry?
In a perfect world, your teeth will never become damaged. You’ll never get a cavity, you’ll never break a tooth, and you’ll never lose a tooth.
Unfortunately, in the real world, these things do happen. When they do, you want a way to restore your teeth so that you can have a healthy, functional smile once again. This is what is referred to as “restorative dentistry.”
Glenview dentists Dr. Drew Gripentrog and Dr. Jason Rogers excel at restorative dentistry. Our goal is for you to have a smile that both looks good and feels good. All of our custom restorations are made with high-quality materials that mimic the natural appearance of your teeth so that they blend in well among your existing dentistry.
Restorative Dentistry Services
Dental implants – Dental implants are a state-of-the-art, innovative way to replace a lost tooth. We also offer bridges and dentures to replace missing teeth, and these are often a great choice for many people as well, but dental implants provide something unique. The implant actually integrates with your bone structure for impressive stability and security, and it helps maintain your oral health for the long term.
Crowns – We offer beautiful, custom-made crowns so that your damaged tooth can be repaired without marring your smile. Crowns are an excellent choice for a tooth that is cracked or broken, worn down, or brittle due to root canal therapy.
Fillings – We don’t believe that a cavity should permanently change the appearance of your smile. Tooth-colored fillings allow us to fill in the cavity without having to remove excess tooth structure, and they can be shaded to perfectly match the natural color of your enamel. We can also use filling material to make small repairs to your teeth, such as filling in chips. This process is known as bonding.
