Restorative Dentistry

What is restorative dentistry?

The name of restorative dentistry is fairly descriptive of the actual practice. This branch of dentistry deals with restoring the teeth to their original health and structure. Here are some situations in which restorative dentistry might help: blunt trauma to the mouth and teeth, tooth decay, wearing away of tooth structure through abrasion, alignment issues, or cosmetic concerns.

If you’ve had any of these concerns yourself, talk to Dr. Blackhurst about what procedures might be available to help you.
