Restorative Dentistry

What is restorative dentistry? 

Restorative dentistry encompasses a variety of dental treatments to enhance your smile and improve your oral health. This type of dentistry typically involves services to treat your teeth when you’ve lost a tooth or if your tooth is cracked, chipped, or misshapen.

The experienced team at Kimberly Andersen, DDS, offers a range of restorative dentistry services, including:

  • Fillings
  • Veneers
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental implants

You can discuss which option might be right for you during your consultation at the office of Kimberly Andersen, DDS.

What are veneers?

Veneers recreate the look of natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain that’s bonded to your tooth. Veneers can reshape your teeth and cover imperfections, such as: 

  • Cracks
  • Gaps
  • Chips
  • Stains

Veneers also help fortify delicate teeth.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a long-term solution for missing teeth. Implants mimic your natural teeth, right down to the roots. They also prevent bone loss in your jawbone and stop your natural teeth from shifting out of place. 

Dental implants begin with your dentist inserting a titanium post into your jawbone. Your bone tissue grows around the post, anchoring it in place. 

A customized crown is placed onto the post. The dental implant performs like a natural tooth, giving you a healthy, beautiful smile. Because the implant is anchored in your jawbone, it offers maximum stability.

What are crowns?

Crowns are a type of restorative dentistry used when your tooth is chipped, cracked, or damaged in some fashion. Crowns are made from a variety of durable materials, including porcelain, which looks like your natural tooth. 

What are bridges?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, the dentists at Kimberly Andersen, DDS, may recommend a bridge to restore your smile. 

A bridge is designed to close the gap where your teeth are missing with a custom-made prosthetic device. 

Bridges, usually constructed of gold, porcelain, alloys, or a combination of these materials, last a long time with good oral hygiene. 

If you’re looking for an effective solution for misshapen, damaged, or missing teeth, restorative dentistry provides a range of options for a healthy, natural smile.
