Restorative dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the preservation and restoration of decayed, defective, missing, and traumatized teeth. Dr. Tomei & Dr. Weatherhead are highly skilled in dental amalgams & composite (tooth colored) restorations, crowns, bridges, endodontics (root canal), periodontics (gum), prosthodontics (dentures/partials), and oral surgery (tooth removal).
For patients with extensive dental problems, restorative dentistry can provide a way to improve speaking and chewing ability, while simultaneously improving appearance and self-confidence. Missing, damaged, or severely decayed teeth often need replacing. Missing teeth can cause a variety of difficulties, from impaired eating and speaking, to shifting of the remaining teeth. Whether one tooth is missing or all teeth are unsalvageable, dental implants are a strong, long-lasting replacement option.
