Restorative Dentistry

A+ A- A Main Content

Restorative dentistry is any procedure that restores a diseased tooth back to being functional and aesthetic. This includes crowns, veneers, root canal therapy, or fillings.

Most of the time, if a child is brought in at the beginning stages of a cavity, our kids dentist can take care of it without needing to resort to more extensive treatments. However, if a cavity does occur, the solution is based solely on a case-to-case basis. This may include tooth-colored fillings, stainless steel (silver) crowns, or zirconia (white) crowns if your child is a good candidate.

  • Fillings: Fillings are the most common type of restoration and are used to treat cavities or cracked and broken teeth. A small amount of resin is used to plug the cavity, preventing bacteria or infection from burrowing deeper into the tooth.
  • Crowns: Crowns are like caps that are placed over teeth in order to restore appearance, shape, and strength of the tooth. They can cover discolored or misshapen teeth, or protect weak or broken teeth from being further damaged.
  • Bridges: Bridges are false teeth that fill in a gap created by missing teeth. Bridges are usually anchored by crowns and then cemented into place, literally “bridging the gap.”

If you believe your child could benefit from any of these restoration options, please call Little Rockies Kids Dental in Parker, Colorado.
