Smiling Patients of Restorative Dentistry

What is restorative dentistry?

A patient who has teeth that are damaged or missing, whether from disease, injury or other causes, is a candidate for restorative dentistry, which will restore overall mouth health and make teeth look aesthetically pleasing. Receiving proper treatment for damaged or missing teeth is essential in order to prevent further problems and eliminate difficulties with eating or speaking.

Procedures in restorative dentistry

Dr. Paul Covell has several restorative options available, and which ones are used depend upon the patient’s overall health and personal preference, and the doctor’s recommendation. Available restorative dental treatments include:

Full dentures

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are prosthetic devices, usually made from acrylic, that are used to replace missing teeth. Removable and easy to use, full-mouth dentures will take up the whole mouth rather than just replacing several missing teeth. Dentures can be used as replacements for tooth loss from gum disease or extensive tooth decay.

Partial dentures

A removable partial denture is used to replace a smaller set of teeth rather than the whole mouth. These are used when one or more natural teeth have been lost. They can be placed into the mouth by use of a clasp that latches on to the surrounding natural teeth. Partial dentures are an effective way to fill in gaps.


A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is used to restore weak, broken, or decayed teeth. Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel over your tooth to ensure a secure fit of the dental crown. Dental crowns can help support a cracked tooth, strengthen a weak tooth, hold a dental bridge in place, cover severe tooth stains, cover dental implants, and protect root canals.


Dental bridges are also used to replace missing teeth. They are often made of porcelain, ceramics, zirconium, or composites. Dental bridges will restore chewing function and improve the appearance of your smile.

Dental implants

Dental implants are medical devices that can be surgically implanted into the jaw of a patient. They are mainly used as a strong support for artificial teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. They also help to strengthen artificial teeth and restore full function of the ability to chew.

Mini dental implants

Mini dental implants are just like regular dental implants, except they use a one-piece screw. These implants are effective for patients who do not qualify for regular dental implants.

Full-mouth reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction involves the rebuilding, replacing, and restoration of all the teeth within the mouth. This treatment often addresses any and all dental issues a patient may have. Not only does it focus on restoring your dental health, but it can improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are made up of made out of composite, amalgam or glass ionomer. They are used to restore the structure of a damaged tooth. They are most commonly used to fill cavities. Inlays treat any issues within a tooth, while onlays are placed on top of the tooth to prevent surface deterioration.

How Much Does Restorative Dentistry Cost?

The total cost of your restorative dentistry treatment will vary depending on the dental procedures you will need. To get an estimate of your total cost, we recommend patients schedule a consultation with Dr. Covell.

Does Insurance Cover Restorative Dentistry?

Yes. Because restorative dentistry is not just focused on the aesthetics of your smile, but also the function of your teeth and the state of your oral health, most dental insurance companies will cover part or all of the cost of your restorative dentistry treatment. We encourage patients to consult with their dental insurance providers to find out what is covered.
