An impaired or damaged smile can present several challenges. These include compromising your normal oral functions and making you appear older. Restorative dentistry can provide practical solutions to repair your teeth and boost self-confidence. At Sandia Peak Dental, we offer several restorative dentistry treatments to keep your smile feeling and looking at its best.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry includes all dental treatments that can help re-establish the structure and functionality of your mouth. We will provide solutions to address your tooth decay, infections, misaligned teeth, and impaired oral function. Our restorative treatments include composite fillings, dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

- Composite Fillings
Composites are tooth-colored fillings that are used to treat cavities. They restrict the spread of decay while simultaneously giving structural support to an impaired tooth. If the decay is not treated promptly, it can cause pain, infection, and in severe cases, tooth loss.
- Dental Crown
Dental crowns are restorative appliances that can reinstate a severely compromised tooth that fillings cannot fix. It is a cap-like restoration that shields the entire tooth and provides added strength and protection.
- Dental Bridges
Bridges comprise multiple crowns that are held together by a metal frame. They help bridge the void in your smile and are secured to the neighboring healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges are fabricated from ceramic resin, making them blend in easily with your smile.
- Dental Implant
Dental Implants are metal posts that restore a missing tooth. The implant surgery involves the placement of the metal post into the missing tooth's socket and acts as its roots. After the healing of the bone and grafting of the implant, it is topped with a dental crown to restore your smile.
Dentures are removable devices that can replace all or a few missing teeth in your dental arch. They are constructed from acrylic resin and can rest firmly on your gums. Dentures can reinstate your ability to chew and eat foods comfortably.
- Inlays and Onlays
An inlay is utilized to help restore damaged teeth when the damage has not extended to a tooth's tips. But when the damage extends to the tips, onlays are employed.
