The Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry can address a variety of issues, correcting chipped or broken teeth and repairing severely decayed teeth. Undergoing restorative dentistry treatments can reinforce the structural integrity of your tooth and protect it from further damage. When left untreated, compromised teeth can cause pain and lead to gum disease, dental misalignment, soft and hard tissue degeneration, tooth loss, and a number of other issues. Choosing to repair your smile with a restorative treatment can improve your oral and overall health.

Types of Restorative Treatments
Restorative dentistry is a vital part of Fairfax Family Dental Care. We offer a variety of restorative services to meet our patients’ needs.
Missing teeth can not only impact your self-esteem, but also result in a host of oral health complications. However, dental implants provide patients with a lasting solution. These small titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone and are designed to support a dental crown, bridge, or denture. This treatment not only improves the appearance of your smile but also preserves your jawbone and prevents bone atrophy.
To repair teeth that have sustained minor to moderate tooth decay, we can place a tooth-colored filling. After removing compromised tissue and thoroughly cleaning the tooth, we can fill the cavity with composite resin. This material provides natural-looking results, while protecting the tooth structure.
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged and cannot be repaired with a dental filling, we can place a customized dental crown over the affected tooth. Made from porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal, this dental cap is permanently bonded to the visible portion of the tooth, providing optimal strength. A dental crown can also work in combination with a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth.
If you have lost one or more teeth in a row, a dental bridge can help fill in the gap left behind. This restoration is fashioned from porcelain with at least one artificial tooth (pontic) flanked by two dental crowns. Fused together as one piece, a dental bridge can be supported by your remaining teeth or two dental implants.
For patients missing an entire arch of teeth, we provide both traditional and implant-supported dentures. Your device will be crafted from sturdy, natural-looking materials in order to provide optimal durability and aesthetics. A traditional full or partial denture will rest atop your gums and remain in place with suction and a dental adhesive. An implant-supported denture is attached to dental implants.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
If you have extensive dental damage, we can combine any number of restorative procedures into a full mouth reconstruction. This treatment plan is especially designed for your dental needs and goals, and is often completed in phases. We can plan your full mouth reconstruction around your budget and schedule, so you feel confident in your treatment.
