Restorative Dental Treatments
Restorative dentistry is meant to repair (or restore) teeth that have suffered damage to their structures, have become infected with tooth decay, or have been lost due to dental disease or trauma. To create accurate and highly-effective dental restorations, Dr. Correa uses advanced technology and materials, such as digital X-rays and lifelike dental porcelain. For extensive treatments, or for patients who may feel anxious, we may also recommend nitrous oxide (NO2) sedation that will help you remain relaxed in the dental chair throughout your procedure.
The point of restorative dentistry is to help you rebuild and restore your proper bite function, as well as establish a more attractive appearance. Because teeth cannot repair themselves, a custom-made restoration is necessary to prevent an injured or infected tooth from continuing to sustain more damage. In many cases, seeking restorative treatment early can help you prevent the loss of a compromised tooth. If you’ve already lost one or more teeth, then a custom-made restoration can also help you replace them with a lifelike prosthesis.
