What treatments fall under the umbrella of restorative dentistry? 

At Cambridge Family Dental, Dr. Angela Bauer Williams of Cambridge, Wisconsin, offers a selection of restorative dental services and treatments for patients to consider when addressing lost, broken, or damaged teeth.

 What treatments are considered “restorative dentistry?”

  • Dental fillings. Dental fillings are one of the most commonly used restorative treatments at Cambridge Family Dental. Fillings are primarily used to repair natural teeth that have been extensively damaged due to tooth decay or cavities. The procedure involves removing the decaying portion of the natural tooth and filling it with a material like composite resin, porcelain, or amalgam.
  • Dental crowns. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over a damaged or heavily filled tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. They can be made from various materials such as metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic, or zirconia. Crowns improve the appearance of a damaged tooth and restore functionality.
  • Dental bridges. Similar to crowns, dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They consist of one or several artificial teeth (pontics) that are held in place by securing them to the surrounding teeth with crowns. Bridges are often made from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both.
  • Dental implants. Implants are a permanent solution for those replacing missing teeth. They consist of a titanium metal post, which our team will surgically place into the jawbone, acting as an artificial tooth root. After healing and integration with the jawbone, a crown is attached to the dental implant, providing a more natural-looking and functioning replacement for the missing tooth.
  • Dentures. Dentures are removable appliances that replace multiple or all missing teeth in one or both arches. They are often made from acrylic, metal, or a combination of both. Dentures restore the appearance and function of missing teeth, support facial muscles, and improve speech and chewing abilities. Our practice offers partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-retained dentures for patients.
