Restorative Dentistry Treatments

There are many different restorative dentistry treatments to meet all of your needs.

Dental Crowns

Protect your teeth after root canals, cover deep stains, or reshape your smile with tooth crowns. Dr. Petkevis can complete the dental crown restoration in two visits.


Dr. Petkevis can repair or replace your old dentures with digitally crafted dentures. They will fit perfectly and feel comfortable on your gums. You also have the option to support your denture with dental implants for a more secure fit.

Dental Implants

If you have lost a tooth that is in the “smile zone” and feel self-conscious about the gap it left behind, consider getting a dental implant. They have a high success rate and require less upkeep than traditional bridges or dentures.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a single prosthesis that replaces one or multiple missing teeth. You have the option to secure the bridge with dental implants for a more secure fit.

Porcelain Veneers

A tooth veneer is a thin shell of resin or composite material. Your dentist will secure it to the front of a damaged tooth. It can cover deep stains, reshape your tooth, or fix cracks and chips in teeth.

Restorative Dentistry FAQs

Restorative dentistry works to improve the function and health of your smile. Read the answers to these commonly asked questions and learn more.

What does restorative dentistry do?

Restorative dentistry repairs or replaces broken or missing teeth. We want to improve your chewing ability and overall oral function with restorative care. An added benefit is that it often improves the aesthetics of your smile as well, though that isn’t the main focus.

What’s the difference between general and restorative dentistry?

General dentistry focuses on preventative care and performing procedures to avoid dental problems in the future. Restorative dentistry comes into the picture when dental problems are happening and impacting the function of your mouth. These two dentistry disciplines can overlap in some instances.

Are dental fillings and root canals considered restorative?

Though we classify them as general dentistry procedures because they’re so common, both are technically restorative procedures. Both prevent further tooth decay and damage from occurring in the tooth and restore full function to the tooth. Tooth decay and root canal infections are painful and can make it hard to chew your food properly.

Is a chipped tooth a restorative issue?

It depends on the severity of the chip. A tiny piece chipping off is common and usually considered a cosmetic issue if it doesn’t impact the use of your tooth. However, a large chip can be painful and dangerous. If the nerves are exposed, anything that touches them can cause pain. A sharp edge endangers the soft tissues in your mouth. At this point, it’s considered a restorative problem and needs attention.

Why should I get restorative dentistry instead of tooth extraction?

At our office, we practice conservative dentistry and preserve the natural tooth structure whenever possible. There are consequences when you remove the natural tooth root. The jawbone deteriorates, and the teeth shift to try and fill the gap. Restorative care allows us to avoid these side effects. We only recommend extraction if the tooth may cause harm to the rest of your teeth.

Does my insurance cover restorative care?

Most insurance plans will cover at least a portion of restorative dentistry, depending on the needed procedures. We work with your insurance to ensure you get the care you need. The cost is determined by the procedures we’ll need to do, and we offer multiple options for financing in addition to your insurance coverage.
