Restorative Dentistry Q & A

Why do I need restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry is a personalized approach to oral health care that involves bringing your teeth back to their optimal state or restoring them if they’ve always had imperfections.

Your dentist may recommend restorative dentistry treatments if you have:

  • Broken, cracked, or misshapen teeth
  • Severe tooth decay or damage
  • Gum or bone deterioration
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth loss 

Restorative dentistry isn’t a standalone service, but a personalized package of treatments that you and your dentist select to help you improve your bite and smile. 

Which restorative dentistry treatment do I need?

Greene Street Dental proudly offers the latest and most advanced restorative dentistry solutions available. 

Depending on your needs, your dedicated dentist may recommend any of the following:

  • Bridges 
  • Fillings 
  • Root canals
  • Extractions 
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental implants
  • Partial or full dentures 

Greene Street Dental also designs plans to treat sleep apnea, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and bruxism (grinding). The team works with you to find the most comfortable, beneficial, and affordable solutions to move forward with your dental health care. 

How long does restorative dentistry take?

Restorative dentistry usually takes several visits. During your initial consultation, your dentist takes digital X-rays and examines your mouth to let you know which types of restorative treatments you may need.

After counseling you about your restorative dentistry options, your dentist schedules you for subsequent visits. 

Your next appointment may involve oral surgery to remove teeth — common with wisdom or severely damaged teeth — or to place dental implants, among other procedures. During this visit, your dentist may also prepare teeth for crowns or bridges. 

If you need oral surgery, it can take anywhere from 3-6 months or longer to complete your restorative dentistry plan since tissues take time to heal. 

If oral surgery isn’t necessary, for example, if you just need a few crowns, you can usually come back to Greene Street Dental a few weeks later to complete your treatment after the lab fabricates your new tooth.
