Stonewalk Family Dentistry’s state-of-the-art Alpharetta restorative dentistry services can give your smile a second a chance. We take many things for granted with our natural teeth – from smiling with confidence to eating the foods we love – but when your oral health is compromised, you may find it difficult to do the things you enjoy. Thankfully, our restorative dental procedures are designed to help you enjoy your smile and your life again.
Restorative Dental Procedures
We offer an array of restorative dental procedures and corrective dental work to help patients with oral health problems. Often, restorative dentistry may be combined with cosmetic dental procedures to help the results appear natural and organic. These procedures typically begin with a diagnosis of your teeth, gums, jaw and face to determine the cause of your problems, and treatments vary, including:
- Composite dental fillings
- Natural-looking porcelain crowns
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental implants
- Endodontics (root canal therapy)
To make an appointment for restorative dentistry in the Alpharetta area, call (770) 777-1911 or schedule a dentist appointment online for restorative dental procedures. Stonewalk Family Dentistry is located in Milton, GA and services patients ages seven and up who live in the surrounding areas. Patients younger than age seven requiring fillings, extractions or further treatment will be referred to the specialized care of Dr. Nanna Ariaban at Polkadot Pediatric Dentistry.
Composite Dental Fillings
Composite fillings are one of the most common restorative dentistry treatments performed by our experienced dentists. Although these restorative dental procedures are relatively-small and minimally-invasive, they can make a big difference in the health and appearance of your smile.
Composite fillings are comprised from a mixture of glass and composite materials that blend in with the rest of your tooth, creating a more natural-looking restoration than traditional amalgam (silver) fillings. These fillings can be bonded directly to the surface of your tooth, which requires less preparation and creates a healthier tooth structure beneath the filling.
Inlays and Onlays
If you have a tooth with too much damage to be repaired with a filling but not enough to require a crown, your dentist at Stonewalk Family Dentistry will likely suggest restorative dentistry procedures called “inlays” or “onlays.” Inlays are used in the center of a tooth (the deepest part), whereas onlays are specifically structured to cover the cusps (points) and edges of a tooth. Both are widely-used restorative dental procedures that can save your tooth from extraction or fractures.
Unlike fillings, which are created and placed all at once, inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab. Your dentist then bonds the restoration to your tooth in the same way a crown is placed, shaping and polishing the inlay or onlay for a perfect fit.
