What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Life is too short and too precious to spend it with teeth that make you uncomfortable, cause you pain, or make you smile with your lips closed. Restorative dentistry is a great way to start living again.
At North Shore Prosthodontic Associates, we make it our goal to save your natural teeth whenever possible. Through the use of technology and advanced procedures, we can remove decay, align bites, and restore broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. However, sometimes all efforts to save a tooth may be exhausted, requiring your dentist to move toward natural-appearing tooth alternatives to restore function and appearance.
Whatever it takes, restorative dentistry has a solution.

Can a broken tooth be fixed?
Yes! Unless it is broken to the gum line or below it, restorative dentistry can address the many cracks, chips, fractures, and the like that impact teeth. Crowns are a common treatment used to protect a tooth from further damage while restoring its functionality.
Will my dental insurance cover restorative procedures?
Each dental insurance policy is different when it comes to their coverage. However, most restorative dental procedures are viewed as necessary and are typically covered. Once you have your treatment plan, it is best to discuss your eligibility coverage with your insurance company.
What happens if a missing tooth is left untreated?
A missing tooth – or missing teeth – needs to be addressed. You may feel as though it is no big deal, but over time your surrounding teeth may begin to shift. This can impact your bite alignment and so much more. Talk to a prosthodontist as there are many available options for replacing a missing tooth.
What is the difference between restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry?
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring teeth to their proper function while cosmetic dentistry focuses on appearance. Though, using both together can leave you with beautiful, comfortable results.
