Restorative Dentistry Repairs Your Teeth, Betters Your Smile
A strong, healthy smile conveys vitality and enthusiasm. Dental decay, disease, and missing teeth compromise your oral wellness, overall vitality, and self-esteem. Dr. Tutin and our experienced team provide a variety of restorative dentistry services to restore comfort, function, and appearance to damaged or incomplete smiles.
Dr. Tutin uses tooth-colored composite resin fillings to restore form and function to decayed dentition. If your restorative dentistry needs include new fillings, Dr. Tutin will use gentle air abrasion technology to prepare your tooth. Then, he’ll custom-tint a small amount of durable, decay-resistant composite resin, restoring your tooth’s health and appearance. Composite resin fillings provide long-lasting protection against decay and won’t warp or change shape.
Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays
A crown sits snugly atop a weakened tooth to restore form and function and protect it from further harm. Dr. Tutin uses all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and gold crowns. A custom crown looks, feels, and reflects light like a natural tooth, so no one will notice your restoration, just your stunning smile. If your tooth doesn’t require a crown but needs more restoration than a filling can provide, Dr. Tutin may suggest an inlay or onlay. Inlays fit within the cusps, or bumps, of a tooth. Onlays fit over one or more bumps.
Dentures and Partials
Full dentures contain an upper and lower row of prosthetic teeth on a gum-colored base and are a comfortable, long-lasting solution to restore dental comfort and function. Dr. Tutin may suggest a partial denture, or partial, to fill the gaps in a smile that still contains some healthy teeth. Natural-looking and durable, dentures and partials are custom restorative dentistry solutions to replace missing teeth and let you eat, smile, and laugh with confidence.
Dental implants contain a prosthetic root and crown to mimic normal tooth structure. Because of their natural look and feel, many people prefer implants to dentures, partials, and bridges. Dental implants are a permanent restorative dentistry addition to your smile, so no adhesives or clasps are required to hold them in place, and you’ll never experience embarrassing slippage.
