Richardson restorative dentistry

When a tooth develops decay or infection, or an injury, then you need restorative dentistry. In fact, this can also help with tooth replacement too! To ensure optimal health and function, and results that blend with your smile, we can offer treatment with advanced technology and natural-looking materials. In today’s blog, your Richardson, TX, dentist talks about our dental restorations.

When You Need Restorative Dentistry

When you sustain an injury to your tooth, even a minor chip or fracture, treatment is crucial for avoiding the onset of tooth decay or infection. Likewise, if your tooth becomes decayed or develops an infection, treatment with restorative dentistry helps protect you from discomfort and the risk of eventual tooth loss. When a tooth is lost, this could lead to major complications for your oral health and quality of life. Our team can help preserve your smile and prevent these issues by securing a dental prosthetic, enabling you to enjoy a full smile again! If you experience these complications, or if you have painful symptoms like toothaches that don’t pass with time, let us know right away! We will conduct a detailed examination and plan your treatment with precision and accuracy.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings, made from a metal-free composite resin, are safe for all ages and can be placed in one visit. We will shade them to blend with your smile and offer a natural appearance. The same material can be used in a bonding procedure to address minor damage too!

Custom Crowns

If you require a crown to repair your tooth and improve bite balance, we can create them from lifelike materials like ceramic or zirconia, so you have a restoration that looks natural and provides a durable chewing surface too.

Root Canal Procedures

When a tooth is infected, you need more than a filling. With a root canal, we can gently and comfortably remove the infection tissues from the interior of the tooth, add a special filling, and then cap the tooth with a custom crown, so you have relief from discomfort and a lifelike appearance.

Dental Bridges

Minor tooth loss, such as one to three missing teeth in a row, can be addressed with a durable and lifelike bridge, which consists of new teeth with crowns on each side. We place the crowns on the teeth on either side of the gaps to secure your new ones in place for as long as 15 years in some cases!


We have custom full and partial dentures to take on major cases of tooth loss. These can be removable or secured with dental implants, and we always take time to ensure a comfortable fit and a natural appearance too.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Restorative dentistry could also include wisdom tooth extraction, removing these third molars in your late teens or early adulthood, before they erupt can cause problems for your smile!
