What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a field of dentistry focused on bringing function back to your smile after oral health issues have occurred. Common problems restorative dentistry addresses include:
- Missing Teeth
- Damaged Teeth
- Wisdom Teeth Issues
While restorative dentistry is focused on restoring function, it often improves the look of your smile by replacing and restoring lost, damaged, and decayed teeth.
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Traditional Crowns & Bridges
Traditional crowns and bridges are natural-looking, all-ceramic dental restorations. Traditional crowns match the color of your teeth and feel lifelike, making them a great choice for front teeth restorations. They also don’t produce a black gum line, as is common with porcelain-metal crowns.
For patients missing consecutive teeth, we offer dental bridges that restore your smile’s strength, durability, and appearance. Our bridges are made of high-quality false teeth called pontics secured in place with additional crowns fitted over neighboring teeth.
Dental implants are the gold standard in restorative dentistry that look and function just like natural teeth. The restorations are held in place by surgically implanted titanium posts. These posts mimic tooth roots, holding the restoration in place. Dental implants provide unmatched oral health benefits, such as jawbone regeneration and restored bite force.
CEREC One-Visit Restorations
CEREC restorations provide flexibility for our patients’ busy lives by giving them seamless new smiles on the same day as their appointment. With the use of state-of-the-art CEREC technology, we can create same-day crowns, bridges, and other ceramic blend restorations. Our team is trained in this advanced procedure that involves capturing 3D images and milling a custom restoration in-office.
Periodontal Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease treatment works to eliminate periodontal (gum) disease, a condition that affects the gums and supporting tissues of the teeth. Through laser-assisted scaling and root planing, deep cleaning, and other proven treatments, we can effectively manage and even reverse the effects of gum disease, ensuring a healthy smile and optimal oral health.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal therapy is often the best method of saving a tooth from extraction in cases of severe decay or infection. Root canals halt and prevent infection by removing all the decayed tissue from within the affected teeth. After treatment, your Sacramento dentist will fit a custom dental crown to protect and strengthen it.
Tooth Extraction & Wisdom Teeth Services
Tooth extraction may be necessary when wisdom teeth or other damaged or decayed teeth cause discomfort or oral health issues. We provide comfortable and efficient tooth extractions, removing teeth that can’t be repaired or are causing problems with your smile. Our fast, painless extractions can help preserve your oral health and make room for beneficial restorations.
Full and Partial Removable Dentures
Full and partial dentures restore the functionality and appearance of a smile for patients missing multiple teeth. Affordable and simple to use, full and partial dentures can replace as many teeth as needed. Whether you’re missing one tooth or entire arches of teeth, our dentures are custom-made to look like your natural smile.

Restorative dentistry is not recognized by the American Dental Association as a specialty. However, restorative dentistry is a highly important field due to its focus on improving your oral health after a problem has occurred. Feel free to ask your restorative dentist if they have any procedures or treatments they specialize in and how their skills can benefit you.
Restorative dentistry is focused on improving the health and function of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry services and restorative dentistry services often overlap, since many cosmetic dentistry procedures improve the health of your smile and restorative procedures make your smile look more attractive.
