Our Dental Restorations Will Give You a Beautiful Smile & Strong Bite

People are sometimes reluctant to go to the dentist to have their smile repaired. However, you can feel confident in trusting the team at East Limestone Family Dental to handle your dental restoration. We have a long list of happy patients, many of whom have given us glowing testimonials.

What’s more, if you’re nervous about your procedure, we offer inhaled sedation using laughing gas. In a few short minutes, this sedative will put you in a completely relaxed state.

Below are a few restorative dentistry types of services we offer:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings – Because Dr. Fitts can custom-shade your fillings, they won’t stand out like traditional metal fillings can. Our natural-looking fillings will blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth.
  • Dental Crowns – We can make you a same-day crown right here in our office using CAD/CAM technology. It will look as natural as your other teeth and restore virtually all your chewing power. A crown can be used with a dental implant to replace a tooth or alone to cover and protect a damaged tooth.
  • Bridges – Standard fixed bridges anchor to your existing teeth to replace one or more missing teeth.
  • Dental Veneers – Although often used as a cosmetic treatment, veneers will also strengthen your teeth and help prevent further damage.
  • Root Canal Treatment – Cleaning out the infected inner portion of a diseased tooth will eliminate your pain and usually save a tooth from extraction.

Let your restorative dentist in Athens, AL give you back a beautiful smile and strong bite! Call East Limestone Family Dental today at 256-229-3416 to schedule an appointment. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry

What does restorative dentistry include?

Any time you have a tooth that suffers damage from decay, infection, injury, or another type of trauma, restorative dentistry can repair it so you can save the tooth from further damage or extraction. Restorative treatment includes any service designed to relieve pain and help you regain oral function, like tooth fillings, root canals, and crowns and bridges, as well as dentures and dental implants.

What does restorative dentistry cost?

We offer a wide range of restorative dentistry services, and they all differ in complexity. That means each restorative treatment is going to vary in cost. Simple procedures, like tooth fillings, will cost significantly less than dental crowns, root canal treatments, and replacement teeth. Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of restorative dental care to offset treatment expenses.

What is advanced restorative dentistry?

Advanced restorative dentistry covers those dental services that go beyond just placing a simple filling for a small cavity. Many patients have extensive dental damage and require a significant amount of treatment to repair this damage. Advanced treatment could include getting dental implants and securing new replacement teeth to them to restore your smile and bite.
