Restorative Dentistry Q&A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry aims to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth to give you back the smile you deserve. Where cosmetic dentistry works to give you the most attractive smile, restorative dentistry focuses primarily on your mouth’s health and functionality. 

Sometimes, the two overlap, especially in the care of a skilled dentist like Dr. Barton. She offers a variety of treatments that can help, and she prioritizes patient communication to ensure you work together to find the best one to meet your needs.

What does restorative dentistry treat?

You may be a good candidate for restorative dentistry if you need help to repair or address:

  • Cavities or tooth decay
  • Damaged or broken teeth
  • Missing teeth

Addressing these issues promptly prevents further damage, infection, and decay. 

What treatments are part of a dental restoration?

Some tried-and-true treatments include:


When Dr. Barton can catch your tooth wear and decay in its early stages, she can address cavities with a filling. She removes any decay from the tooth and fills the hole with a sturdy composite material to support the rest of the tooth and halt further damage to it.

Crowns and bridges

If a cavity is too large for a filling, a crown may be your best option. This dental treatment “caps” your tooth, fitting snugly over and protecting it. If you have missing teeth, dental bridges between crowns can fill the gaps and return you to smiling your widest smile.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a longer process but can be an amazing option for replacing missing teeth. They require a dental implant post to be placed and have time to heal, and then Dr. Barton can fit it with a crown that looks and functions like your natural teeth. 


Even if you have few or no natural teeth, Dr. Barton can help you maintain a healthy and attractive smile with custom-fitted dentures. 

Oral health supports your whole-body health, and solutions for restorative dentistry are always close at Tatiana Barton, DDS. Whether you have pain or concerns weighing on you, don’t keep going it alone.
