What is restorative dentistry?

Dr. Blanca Fernandez describes restorative dentistry as the field of dental work focusing on the replacement of missing teeth, repair of existing teeth, and any procedure meant to restore the function and health of the smile.

What are some of the restorative dentistry procedures performed by Dr. Fernandez?

  • Dental fillings. With dental fillings, specifically composite resin fillings, areas of tooth decay can be filled and restored for a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  • Dental crowns. Dental crowns cover and protect teeth that have cracked or broken due to trauma, decay, or other damage. Crowns not only restore the functional aspect of a tooth but also improve its overall aesthetic look.
  • Bridges. A bridge is an artificial dental appliance that fills the gap left by missing teeth. They are secured with several implants or attached directly to existing teeth on either side of the gap.
  • Veneers. Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or composite material designed to fit over the front surface of teeth, improving their shape and overall appearance. One or more veneers can be used in the smile for subtle or dramatic enhancements.
  • Dental implants. Dental implants are typically a permanent solution for those missing teeth and provide support for replacement teeth, such as crowns or bridges. Implants typically consist of titanium posts surgically inserted into the bone of the natural jaw to act as roots, with replacement teeth attached to them. Dr. Fernandez has a Fellow of “The International Congress oral implantology “ and has years of experience on surgical implant procedures and restoration for single crowns, bridges, and overdentures!!
