“Restorative dentistry” is the term dental professionals use to explain how they replace missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (“caps”), bridges and implants are common restorative options. The goal is to bring back your natural smile and prevent future oral health issues.
Why restorative dentistry procedures are important
- Filling empty spaces in the mouth helps keep teeth properly aligned
- Replacing teeth makes it easier to maintain good oral care habits to help prevent plaque build-up and the problems plaque can lead to
- Missing teeth can affect your health, appearance and self-esteem

Tips for taking care of your restorative dentistry work
- Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day.
- Electric toothbrushes can help remove plaque from your teeth and restorative work.
- Make sure to floss around your teeth, dental implants, crowns, and bridges every day.
- Try not to chew on hard or sticky foods. These can damage your implant, bridge, or crown.
- Use an antibacterial mouthwash to help fight plaque bacteria around restorative work.
