Restorative Dentistry Q & A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry focuses on replacing or repairing teeth with extensive damage. Teeth damage may develop from decay (cavities), gum disease, injuries, or even behaviors such as teeth grinding (bruxism). 

You might feel self-conscious about your smile if you have missing or damaged teeth. At Marvel Dental, the team understands how it may impact your overall confidence, so they provide restorations that blend in with the rest of your natural teeth and allow you to smile confidently. 

Using advanced technology to design beautifully functional restorations, the team customizes your restorations to match the exact size, shape, color, and shade of your natural teeth.  

What are the different types of restorative dentistry? 

Marvel Dental is proud to offer a wide range of restorative dentistry services that can restore your smile, including: 


Filling are dental restorations that repair decaying tooth enamel. Traditionally, fillings were made from amalgam –– a combination of several metals. The team at Marvel Dental offers tooth-colored fillings made of composite resin. The resin mimics the color and light-reflecting properties of your natural enamel, ensuring the filling blends in seamlessly with your smile.


A crown is a tooth cap designed to look like the surface of your natural tooth. The team removes a layer of enamel from your damaged tooth prior to placing the crown on top. If your original tooth is missing, you might also need a crown for a dental implant. 


Bridges provide a way for the team to replace one or several missing teeth in a row. 

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that fuse together with your jawbone. The team can place a single implant or several dental implants to support a full or partial denture. 


Some dentures are removable oral appliances that you can easily take off, while others may attach to dental implants to make them more secure and stable. They can replace several teeth or all of your teeth.   

How should I take care of my restorations?

At Marvel Dental, the team recommends brushing your teeth and flossing regularly to take care of your restorations. They also suggest taking removable dentures out to brush your gums and clean your dentures. 

The team also provides you with tips to maintain your oral health. It’s important to remove food particles and bacteria from your teeth to keep them healthy, but having healthy teeth can also benefit your overall health in a variety of ways (including lowering your risk of some types of chronic disease).
