Restorative Dentistry in Houston
One of the highest priorities in dentistry is saving the natural teeth. Extracting and replacing the tooth is always a last resort because natural teeth are always better for the function and health of patients.
Our doctors and the team at Westfield Dental respect this priority and use every tool and treatment at their disposal to preserve natural smiles. Our talented dental team in Houston works with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique situation, regardless of whether they get worn out by tooth decay or damaged by cracks, chips or an unexpected trauma.
What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of the dentistry that helps maintain your oral and overall well-being when teeth, gums, or other surrounding structures are compromised. Restorative procedures help to protect oral health and overall health while improving the appearance of your smile. The right restoration solution can also substantially reduce the need for further dental work in the future.

What Are Reasons for Restorative Dentistry?
When a tooth is damaged, it is critical that the damaged tooth is repaired. Some reasons why restorative procedures should be considered are:
- Tooth pain
- Improper bite
- Decay and damage
- Failing dental treatments
- Missing teeth
Restorative treatment will attempt to save as much of the healthy tooth as possible.
Restorative Dental Services
Those who fail to visit the dentist could cause damage not only to their oral health but also for their overall health. Things like tooth decay and damage can significantly reduce the efficiency of a smile and make it less appealing. Poor oral health can lead to eating problems, loss of self-esteem and decreasing health problems. Restorative dental services diagnose the underlying problems that damage the smile and provide solutions to those problems. Some of the restorative services offered are:
White fillings repair teeth that affected by cavities. This tooth-colored resin material easily blends in with the color of surrounding enamel, making for a natural-looking restoration.
Crowns are caps placed over teeth to restore the structure and protect against damage and decay. Our crowns are custom crafted using high-quality materials and state-of-the-art technology.
Inlays and Onlays each treat different types of decay: inlays fit inside the cusp of the tooth, and onlays are designed to restore both the inside of the tooth and one or more of the projecting cusps.
Bridges close gaps in the smile using a porcelain prosthetic made to look like a group of teeth. This procedure uses neighboring healthy teeth to secure the prosthesis in place.
Full and partial dentures are dental appliances that replace part or an entire arch of teeth and restore some bite power. This has been a proven method for teeth replacement for many years and continues to remain the number one option for edentulous patients.
Dental implants are comprehensive tooth-replacement options that offer unparalleled support and strength to restorations. Implants fit directly into the jaw and support both surrounding oral structures and the prosthetic replacement teeth.

What to Expect When Receiving Restorations?
We understand that no two smiles are the same. We listen carefully to your concerns and then design a treatment plan that meets your unique needs. At Westfield Dental we know your time is valuable and do our best to get as much done in one visit as possible.
Crowns, bridges, and dentures are crafted at our trusted lab from a detailed impression of your teeth and gums. We offer temporary prosthetics so that your smile remains complete until your permanent restoration is delivered.
What is the Cost of Restoration Dentistry?
The first step to restoring your smile is to create a healthy environment. Your costs will depend on your gums' condition, and if the problem is caused by any other underlying dental problems.
Our comprehensive treatment not only restores your bite but also helps to prevent the problem from repeating and producing continuing issues. We will review your insurance benefits, out-of-pocket costs and coordinate all treatments so that you can spend as little as possible on your oral health.
Keep on Smiling!
Restorations are built to last, and with the proper care, your smile can shine for a long time. Maintaining your regular checkups to examine the health of your gums, inspect your restorations and overall oral health, can ensure your smile stays beautiful. As with any dental issues, early deduction of oral issues can help save money over time.
