Plenty of people daydream about how cosmetic dentistry can improve their smile, but there are many patients who need beautifying in a different way before they can work on their aesthetic issues. If your teeth are unhealthy, missing, or otherwise in disrepair, restorative dentistry is the key to a smile that is strong in both form and function. Fall is the ideal season to make this change, getting you ready for the holiday season ahead.
Fill in the Holes with Dental Implants
Missing teeth are a serious problem, whether there is just one missing or several. The great news is that you can replace these lost teeth and rebuild your smile. The most common solutions include:
- Dental implants: The dental implant replaces both tooth root and crown. A permanent solution to a lost tooth both above and below the gumline, it both looks and feels natural.
- All On Four: Another form of dental implants, All On Four is for patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth. The entire arch is replaced using just four dental implants and bridges or dentures that snap permanently into place.
- Implant supported dentures: There are plenty of patients who avoid visiting the dentist because they don’t want unreliable, removable dentures. Implant supported dentures, however, attach to dental implants for a permanent tooth replacement.
Beautify and Repair with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Composite fillings are natural-looking, high-quality, long-lasting, and affordable. They are color-matched to your existing tooth enamel so no one will ever know you had this repair done. Not only do fillings correct tooth decay, they cover cracks or protect a tooth from cracking, prevent deterioration, repair gapped teeth, replace old fillings, and whiten teeth. A broken-down smile might seem like a major problem, but it might only need tooth-colored fillings to make the necessary fixes.
Choose Porcelain Crowns to Cover What Isn’t Right
Porcelain crowns are known as caps for a reason – they fit perfectly over a problem tooth like a cap and eliminate whatever imperfections are present. Sure, crowns are known to finish off root canal therapy or anchor dental bridges, but they are also independent restorations that fix damaged, decayed, unsightly, cracked, chipped, discolored, or weak teeth. Sometimes a few teeth just need a little boost to work better and be stronger – a customized crown can get them there.
Is Restorative Dentistry Right for You?
It doesn’t matter what age you are or your station in life, everyone deserves to have a healthy, beautiful smile that works properly and makes it easy to bite, chew, speak, and smile. Restorative dentistry can give you the smile makeover you’ve been dreaming of or, at the very least, get you started on the path to brand new smile.

Everything I have had done at Premier Smile Center has been top-notch. The treatment I received was thorough, precise and extremely professional. I never felt like just another patient because they took the time to listen to my concerns. They addressed my issues and we agreed on the treatment plan together.
The staff is very friendly, warm and extremely knowledgeable. I felt relaxed and comfortable knowing I chose the right place to get the dental work I needed. Dr. Johnson is very humane and very knowledgeable, and she does amazing work. I like the friendliness and honesty of the whole practice. I was not confident with my smile, in fact I was very self conscious and rarely smiled. Premier Smile Center has changed all that. My smile is one of the things I like the most.
