We are proud to offer a wide range of dentistry services at Hopper Dental. From general dentistry services such as routine cleanings and exams to more complex cosmetic dentistry services, we aspire to provide our patients with access to the dental care they deserve. One area of dentistry that we find especially beneficial is restorative dentistry.
The primary goal of any restorative dentistry procedure is to restore the mouth in both function and aesthetics. With restorative dentistry, this is done by preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible.
Restorative dentistry is an area of dental care that focuses on restoring your mouth to optimal condition by preserving your natural tooth. This is favored over removing your natural tooth for a number of reasons. Some of the benefits of restorative dentistry include cost-efficacy, tooth structure and function, and overall oral health, to name a few. There are many dental procedures that may fall under the umbrella of restorative dentistry, many of which we specialize in at Hopper Dental.
Using restorative dentistry procedures, we are able to repair damaged, worn, decaying, or even missing teeth. In doing so, we provide you with a smile that is both healthy and beautiful! Restorative dental procedures generally fall under one of two categories: direct and indirect. A few examples of common restorative dentistry procedures include the following:
A direct restorative dental procedure is one where we are able to restore a tooth immediately. The most common example of this is dental fillings. With a filling, we restore a tooth that has a cavity, allowing your tooth to remain healthy and eliminating the growth of the dental cavity.
Indirect restorative dental procedures are often much more involved. Some examples of this type of service may include dental crowns, bridges, inlays, or onlays. With this type of dental procedure, you will likely need to visit our office multiple times before the procedure is complete. Indirect restorative dentistry uses fabricated material to mimic the natural tooth. This allows you to keep the portion of the tooth that remains healthy.
Dr. Amelia Hopper and the team at Hopper Dental is committed to providing each of our patients with dental care that suits both their preferences and their unique needs. Because of this, we work to design a treatment plan that provides you with options for your dental care.
By providing several restorative dentistry services, we are able to ensure that our patients have access to dental care that resolves their problems while preserving much of their natural tooth. This not only creates a less invasive dental procedure but also saves our patients money and time.
No matter the current condition of your oral health, Hopper Dental is ready to help you achieve a smile that is both healthy and beautiful! Contact our team today to schedule an appointment and learn how our restorative dentistry services can benefit you!
