Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Dental restorations are the specific methods dentists use to replace missing or damaged sections of teeth. Your teeth can be damaged by a number of things, including decay and injury.

Dental restorations fully bring back the look, function, and feel of your natural teeth. You get a restored and enhanced smile as well as a boost to your oral health.

Restorative dentistry replaces teeth so it’s easier to maintain good oral care habits and prevent plaque buildup. Filling gaps created by missing teeth helps keep your teeth properly aligned and your jawbones healthy. A fully restored smile also can improve your self-confidence and the first impression you make on people.

What are the different types of dental restorations?

Dr. Tran offers several types of dental restorations at Woodbury Family Dentistry:


Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that restore the appearance and function of damaged or decaying teeth or replace missing teeth.


You benefit from a set of prosthetic teeth that bridge a spot where teeth are missing. Bridges adhere to surrounding teeth.

White fillings

A composite-resin, or white, filling is actually tooth colored. It’s a combination of plastic and glass that restores decaying teeth and fills cavities.

Implant crowns

Implants are metal posts secured to your jawbone through the gumline that replace missing teeth. Crowns attach to these posts, making an attractive and functional smile.

How would I know I need a dental restoration?

Dr. Tran works closely with you to determine what type of dental restoration is right for you. You get a comprehensive consultation to evaluate your smile and discuss your aesthetic and functional oral health goals.

Restorative dentistry offers customized solutions. In some cases, you might think you need a crown when a white filling is enough to improve your smile and tooth function. Dr. Tran helps you decide which restorations are best based on your oral health, personal preferences, budget, and appearance.
