Restorative Dentistry: Customized Solutions to Repair Damaged Teeth

When determining which restorations will best meet your needs, Drs. Kwon and Jabbour will examine the extent and location of the damage to your tooth or teeth. We will then take imaging, photographs and measurements to inform the design of the restoration.

All of our restorations are tailored to match your unique smile for the most natural appearance possible. We want to be sure that the treated tooth looks no different than its natural neighbor.

Not only are restorative dental treatments customized to fit the aesthetic of your smile, many of these treatments can be provided in a single appointment thanks to our practice’s commitment to the advanced technology and tools that make this possible.

Value of Restorative Dentistry

Although modern dental technology offers tooth replacement options that are structurally complete -dental implants – even those devices cannot fully replicate a biological tooth. Therefore, if it’s possible to save your biological tooth, we will make every effort to do so.

Therefore, you must seek restorative dentistry treatments promptly after damage occurs or a cavity is identified. Delaying care can give the condition affecting the tooth the opportunity to progress and may increase the risk that you ultimately lose that tooth.

Types of Dental Restorations

We may recommend one of several dental restorations, depending on your particular case. Restorations can include:

Composite fillings

Used in fairly small, manageable cavities


Used on the biting surfaces of the teeth; Inlays are placed within the biting surface of the tooth, while onlays are placed on cusps of the teeth


Tooth-shaped shells that conceal damaged tooth material

Composite Bonding

Can be used to address smaller areas of damage that do not warrant a veneer or other more sizeable restoration

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

The benefits that CEREC same-day dental crown can offer are significant. In today’s bustling and demanding times, no one has the time to undergo expensive and repeated treatments. That’s why same-day dental porcelain crowns make use of the latest technology to provide people with high-quality and cost-effective dental care that is far more convenient. Same-day dental crown dentistry means no temporary crowns or messy impressions and no need to come back for more work.

Dental Implant Solutions

We offer a wide range of customized dental implant solutions including:
  • Single tooth implants
  • Esthetic implants/ zirconia abutments

Root canal therapy is also considered to be a restorative dentistry intervention. This procedure saves a biological tooth by removing pulp material that is either infected or at risk for infection, cleans out the empty root canal and places an inert substance in it to prevent re-infection.

In some cases, it may not be feasible to save a biological tooth through restorative dentistry despite our best efforts to do so. In these instances, we restore the smile using lifelike prosthetics ranging from fixed dental bridges to dental implants.

Technology and Restorative Dentistry

Without the technology featured at our practice, Drs. Kwon and Jabbour would not be able to achieve such optimal results in such a short treatment timeframe. Technology touches on every part of the restorative dentistry process, from designing the restoration to creating it and then placing it.

These are just a few of the types of technology that can benefit you if you get restorative dentistry treatments at our office:


When a tooth needs a restoration, we can often use CAD/CAM (Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing) technology. We use this technology to custom-design and fabricate tooth-colored restorations, crowns, onlays, inlays, or veneers, all in one appointment. CAD/CAM restorations are often the best choice for a healthy, beautiful, and natural looking smile.


The design generated by our innovative computer software is then relayed to our in-office milling unit that will create your new crown, all in a matter of hours.


This tool can be used in digital design or to create surgical guides.


Three-dimensional images of the surgical field make it easier to plan for dental implant placement and make the procedure more predictable.

Common Restorative Dentistry Questions

Restorative dental work is targeted at repairing damage to a tooth. Restorations can include fillings, onlays/inlays, dental crowns and a number of other treatments.
The cost of the different restorations varies based on the size of the restoration as well as preliminary associated services that may be needed. Insurance benefits may help to reduce your out-of-pocket costs for restorative dentistry. We can give you a precise estimate of anticipated costs after evaluating your case.
A restorative crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is bonded atop a biological tooth that has been severely damaged or affected by a cavity that is too large to be addressed with a more conservative restoration. Crowns are also placed on teeth that have been treated with root canal therapy in order to reduce the risk of breakage after that treatment.
Sometimes a patient may have multiple teeth that have been severely damaged by trauma or decay. In such cases, many restorations may be needed as part of a full mouth rehabilitation. This is a complex process that requires detailed planning.
