Restorative dentistry includes procedures that preserve the dental structure, repair broken or compromised teeth, and reinstate missing teeth. At Family Smiles Fort Lee, we provide a wide range of restorative dentistry treatments, from minor repairs such as fillings or sealing cavities to more complex procedures like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Candidates for Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry restores the full use of oral structures and helps patients in need of tooth replacement or restorations. The restorative procedures are determined by the patient's requirements and the severity of the damage to the mouth structures.
At Family Smiles Fort Lee, our experienced dentists recommend treatment plans depending on the patient's oral condition and specific requirements.

Restorative Dentistry Services at Family Smiles Fort Lee
At Family Smiles Fort Lee, our dedicated team offers the following restorative dental services:
When a tooth is damaged due to cracks, chips, or severe decay, it can be protected with a crown. The tooth's surface is reduced in a crown placement procedure, and the restoration is placed over the top. The crown looks and functions similar to your natural tooth while the root remains in place.
Dental bridges are fabricated to replace one or several missing teeth. They are held in position by crown restorations placed over the existing teeth on either side or supported by dental implants.
Dentures are an economical tooth replacement option for the entire upper and lower arches of a mouth. Removable dentures can be attached to the gums with dental adhesives, while implant-supported dentures are held in position by dental implants placed in the jawbone.
Bonding is used for repairing chipped, fractured, or broken teeth. The process includes restructuring the missing portion of enamel by shaping and bonding composite materials to the natural tooth.
Dental implants are innovative solutions to replace missing teeth and comprise a metal stud, an abutment, and a prosthetic tooth. They can replace single or several teeth with strategically placed dental implants in the mouth arch.
Fillings are used to address the decayed portions of your teeth after cavity treatment and prevent the future development of plaque accumulation.
