What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a specialized field focused on repairing and enhancing various aspects of your smile, aiming to bring back its aesthetic appeal and functional integrity. This branch of dentistry addresses conditions such as severe decay, irreparable damage, missing teeth, and weakened dental structures, providing patients with comprehensive solutions to restore their oral health and confidence.


Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

  • Improved Functionality: Restorative dentistry procedures are designed to enhance the functionality of your teeth. These interventions contribute to better oral function, making daily tasks such as chewing and speaking more comfortable.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: One of the primary benefits of restorative dentistry is the significant improvement in the aesthetics of your smile. These procedures boost your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Prevention of Further Damage: Restorative dentistry acts as a preventive measure against further dental issues. Dental crowns, for example, not only restore the appearance of damaged teeth but also protect them from additional harm or bacterial invasion. 
  • Customized Treatment Plans: Restorative dentistry is highly personalized, with treatment plans tailored to meet individual needs. Your dentist will create a customized plan to address your unique oral health concerns, ensuring optimal results.


Our Restorative Dentistry Treatments

Dental Crowns

Our dental crowns, crafted with cutting-edge CEREC technology, set us apart by allowing us to provide stunning crown restorations in just one visit. Ideal for restoring unattractive, decayed, or damaged teeth, these dental crowns ensure a comfortable and natural fit, giving you a beautiful smile to take pride in. Moreover, they serve both cosmetic and preventative purposes, protecting your teeth from further damage or harmful bacteria.

Dental Implants

Acting as a preventive measure, they are attached to the jawbone, preventing deterioration and shifting of adjacent teeth, common problems after tooth loss. Our Fort Worth restorative dentist customizes dental implant restorations using crowns that seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, providing a long-lasting and durable alternative to dentures.

Dental Bridges

Designed to bridge the gap caused by missing teeth, dental bridges can restore one to four adjacent teeth. Whether you opt for a traditional dental bridge or an implant-supported one, our skilled dentist, Dr. Snider, designs your bridge to ensure a sturdy and durable restoration of missing teeth. The choice between the two depends on your unique needs, but both options promise to harmonize with your natural smile.



Aftercare for a Restorative Dental Treatment

Aftercare for a restorative dental treatment is crucial to ensure a smooth recovery and long-lasting results. While specific instructions may vary based on the type of procedure you’ve undergone, here are some general guidelines for post-restorative dental care:

  • Oral Hygiene Maintenance: Practice meticulous oral hygiene to keep the treated area clean. Brush your teeth gently using a soft-bristled toothbrush, being cautious around the restoration site.
  • Dietary Considerations: Stick to a soft or liquid diet, especially in the initial days after treatment. Avoid extremely hot or cold foods and beverages to prevent sensitivity.
  • Avoid Harmful Habits: Refrain from smoking, as it can hinder the healing process and compromise the success of the restoration. Steer clear of chewing on hard objects or ice to prevent damage to the newly restored area.
  • Manage Discomfort: It’s normal to experience some discomfort or mild pain after a restorative procedure. Over-the-counter pain relievers, as recommended by your dentist, can help alleviate this.
  • Attend Follow-up Appointments: Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your dentist to assess the progress of your restoration and address any concerns.
