Taking care of your teeth is essential to preventing oral diseases that could impact your overall health.

Are you struggling with a missing, fractured, or crooked tooth? Are your teeth or gums causing you discomfort on a daily basis? You might think Restorative Dentistry is just a visual improvement, but there is far more to it. Taking care of your teeth is essential to preventing oral diseases that could impact your overall health.

Our team has years of practice with restorative dentistry, giving your teeth and gums the strength needed to prevent serious health problems. A dentist may recommend restorative dentistry if you have:

  • A chipped, cracked, or missing tooth
  • Teeth that are discolored or decaying
  • Structural problems in your mouth, such as a faulty bite
  • Weak teeth that are vulnerable to fracturing

Restorative dentistry has both cosmetic and health benefits allowing you to look and feel your best. We offer specialty services in dental implants, fillings, full and partial dentures, crowns, bridges, inlays, and more depending on nature and severity of your condition.

Our dental team can help restore your mouth to a natural and beautiful state by using a variety of treatment options. Before we decide on a treatment plan, we will evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding area to determine the extent of the damage. Afterwards, we will give you honest feedback and help you make an informed decision about the way forward depending on your budget.

How does restorative dentistry work?

Treatment will be applied to your natural teeth when there is no direct risk to your oral health, such as gum diseases. In cases where your natural teeth are missing or cannot be preserved, our dentists will use a prosthetic replacement to achieve the same optimal results. Some patients may need a filling or cap (crown) wrapped around a severely damaged tooth to act as a shield and prevent further decay or fragmentation. For others, composite fillings may be enough to treat teeth that have broken down over time.

How much does restorative dentistry cost?

The cost of restorative dentistry will vary based on the type of insurance you have and extent of the treatment. Some patients may need to address multiple oral health problems at once, while others will require minimal dental work. Since treatments range from fillings to full-mouth restorations, our dentists make assessments on a case-by-case basis. Keep in mind that your mouth plays a major part in your overall health, especially as you get older. If dental problems go untreated over time, it will put you at risk of more serious (and costly) complications. Make sure you talk to your dentist about all of the payment options available to you.

Not all people plan for restorative dentistry – sometimes it is the result of an accident or traumatic event. However, there are steps you can take to minimize the chance of serious dental problems arising or reoccurring in the future. The best defense against oral diseases is scheduling regular visits with a certified and trustworthy dentist. Don’t let your dental problems worsen over time and dictate your life – contact us today to see how we can help restore your smile.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only Chattanooga dentist office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the team was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
