Dr. Henry has over 40 years of experience helping his patients with their smiles. Plus, he assembled an expert staff who will work hard to get your smile back in shape.

Your dental restoration will most likely be made from either monolithic zirconia or e.max lithium disilicate, depending on your needs and the location of the restoration. Unlike like some dentists, Dr. Henry works with a local lab. This partnership means a high level of quality control.

You’ll find many types of restorative dentistry here:

  • Tooth Fillings – A cavity left untreated can potentially cause big damage to your smile. We will remove the decay and place a filling to repair the damage and make your smile whole again.
  • Dental Crowns – The local lab will craft your new crown to exact specifications so it blends in well with the rest of your smile. A crown will repair a damaged tooth or, with a dental implant, replace a missing tooth.
  • Dental Bridges – A bridge is a great restoration to replace either a single missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. It can anchor either to your other teeth or to dental implants.
  • Inlays and Onlays – These custom restorations are sometimes called partial crowns because they provide a midrange repair between a tooth filling and a full crown. Inlays sit on top of the tooth, while onlays also extend onto the sides of the tooth.
  • Dentures – You can get several types of dentures at our practice, depending on your circumstances. Your new teeth can be either conventional full or partials. Or you can secure your new teeth with dental implants for a more natural feel and function.
  • Dental Implants – Implants replace missing teeth to restore your smile and your chewing power. They also help prevent bone loss in your jaw to stop deterioration and changes to your facial structure.
  • Root Canal Treatment – Dr. Henry can save your diseased tooth and stop your pain with this treatment. Contrary to popular belief, root canals are no more uncomfortable than getting a tooth filled.

Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry

What does restorative dentistry include?

If you have a tooth that suffers damage from decay, infection, injury, or another type of trauma, restorative dentistry can repair it, so you can save the tooth from further damage or extraction. Restorative treatment includes any service designed to relieve pain and help you regain oral function, like tooth fillings, root canals, crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.

What does restorative dentistry cost?

As you might imagine, since restorative dentistry covers a wide range of treatments, the cost can be just as wide ranging. A standard tooth filling is going to cost much less than placing dental implants to replace missing teeth. Once you come in for your initial exam, we can give you a much better idea of the cost involved for your restorative dentistry.

What are the benefits of restorative dentistry?

A healthy mouth is so much more than clean teeth and gums. Throughout your lifetime, you may need some type of restorative dental care to treat issues with teeth and gums that cause pain or discomfort, interfere with your oral function, or threaten your oral health in general. Restorative dentistry addresses problems like cavities, tooth infection, dental injuries, and tooth loss to keep your teeth functional and your mouth healthy.
