Restorative dentistry works to repair damaged teeth. From dental bonding to decay removal, there are many treatments included in restorative dentistry. If you have a damaged tooth, your dentist can help you determine the best way to restore your smile.
Dental bonding is effective in helping restore damaged, chipped or uneven teeth as well as filling gaps in the teeth. Dental bonding uses the same materials used for dental fillings. This bonding method adheres directly onto your tooth to help restore the appearance of the tooth. Dental bonding is an affordable and simple treatment that can make a big difference for your smile. Dental bonding uses material that is tooth-colored, blending in naturally with your smile. Bonding is made to last for many years.

Catching decay early is the best thing for your smile! If caught early enough, early decay can be treated and further decay can be prevented. If decay has to be removed from the tooth, most likely it will require a filling. Fillings are tooth-colored and blend in naturally with your teeth and should not affect the function of your smile.
Icon is designed to prevent drilling on your smile when treating caries and white spots. Before Icon was available, the only options for dentists were to catch the problem early enough to use fluoride treatments to keep the tooth from getting worse or to drill the tooth when the problem was more extensive. Now Icon provides a solution for reinforcing the enamel and strengthening the tooth to help avoid invasive treatment.
