Restorative Dentistry


Restorative dentistry is helpful in maintaining teeth health and avoiding infections and pain. Restorative dentistry includes treatments like:

  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Crowns


Filling a tooth is the process of fixing a cavity or chip in a tooth. The goal is to restore the original function and appearance of a tooth. Different kinds of filling materials are used dependent on the kind of filling and the specific needs of the patient.

Root Canals

Root canal treatments are performed when a tooth has an infection in the pulp and there is a good prognosis for a crown to restore the tooth. Root canals on teeth with two or less roots can be done in our office, but teeth with three or more roots that need a root canal are referred to an endodontist, who has more specialized instruments and resources.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are placed when a tooth has had a root canal or is heavily restored. Crowns can take anywhere from 2 to 4 appointments, in which we prepare the tooth for the crown and then we place the crown permanently. The crown is fabricated at the Dental Designs lab that creates Zirconia, porcelain, and non-noble metal crowns. Crowns are submitted to a patient’s insurance before we proceed with the procedure to ensure it will be covered, or to inform the patient what their out-of-pocket cost will be.

How to Know if You Need Restorative Dentistry

At your bi-annual dental visit, you will be informed if you are in need of restorative dentistry. However, if you experience pain or swelling in between visits, you should call 402-476-1455 for an appointment.
