What is a dental restoration?


Dental restorations are often necessary to improve a patient’s oral health and to prevent further damage and decay.

This dental procedure is most often used when patients suffer from severe cavities and part of the tooth material has to be removed. The staff at Price & Associates Family Dentistry will remove the infected or damaged area of the tooth that is then filled with an alternative material such as gold, dental composites, or porcelain. By removing and replacing the damaged portion of the tooth, we are able to prevent further pain and decay. Once the dental restoration is complete patients can eat normally without fear of discomfort.
