The Restorative Dentistry Treatment Process

tooth icon

Comprehensive Examination

Every restorative dentistry treatment begins with a comprehensive oral examination. Dr. Amin will thoroughly assess the condition of your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine the extent of the damage and the best course of treatment. This may involve taking digital X-rays or 3D images of your mouth to get a detailed look at your oral structures. It's a crucial step that allows us to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs.

Treatment Planning

Once we have a clear understanding of your oral health status, we'll discuss the most suitable restorative options for your situation. This could range from fillings and crowns to bridges and dentures, or even dental implants. We explain each option in detail, including the pros and cons, so you can make an informed decision. Our aim is to provide a solution that not only restores your oral health but also aligns with your lifestyle and budget.

Treatment Execution

The final step is the execution of the treatment plan. Depending on the complexity of your case, this could be completed in one visit or might require multiple appointments. Rest assured, our skilled team at Flo Dentistry will ensure your comfort and safety throughout the process. We use advanced techniques and technologies to deliver high-quality results with minimal discomfort.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are a common dental procedure used to restore teeth that have been decayed by cavities or compromised by other damage. Your dentist can use different materials for the filling depending on your oral health and the location of the damage. Composite resin, gold alloys, metal amalgam, porcelain, and glass ionomer cement are all types of material traditionally used in fillings. If you have a cavity, it is important that we address it as soon as possible to prevent further damage. If left untreated, a cavity will eventually require more invasive procedures like root canal therapy or extraction to restore your oral health.

Lab-Made Crowns

Lab-made crowns are created by a dental technician at an outside lab. These dental prosthetics restore damaged teeth, covering the entire tooth down to the gum line. Your dentist will first trim your tooth and shape it into a strong platform for attaching your new crown before taking an impression or scan and sending it to our state-of-the-art partner lab where they will craft your custom restoration.

While your custom crown is being made in the lab, we will place a temporary crown and send you on your way. When we receive your permanent crown from the lab, we will have you come back for a quick placement appointment. We will check the fit and make sure it sits comfortably in your smile.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that replaces one or more missing teeth. The process of installing the dental bridge will involve placing crowns on the two adjacent teeth and cementing them together to support the new tooth.

The advantages of having a dental bridge are numerous, but they include better chewing ability, improved speech, less sensitivity from exposed roots, and an overall improvement in oral health because it supports natural teeth.

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is a dental procedure that removes the pulp from inside of a tooth that has become infected or damaged. The procedure can be performed on any teeth, but it is most commonly done on molars or premolars.

The goal of root canal therapy is to remove all traces of infection from the tooth and replace it with filling material (typically gutta-percha). This prevents future problems and helps you avoid more invasive procedures like extraction and tooth replacement. We strive to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible.

To perform this procedure, your dentist will clean out all infected tissue within the root canal system using ultrasonic instruments or hand files and irrigate with an antibacterial solution. After the infection has been removed, you will usually receive a dental crown to protect the tooth from further decay or damage.

Full & Partial Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and gum tissue. A partial denture is made when only some of the natural teeth have been lost, while a full denture can be used to replace all the natural teeth. Dentures may be made from plastic or metal materials and stay in place by suctioning onto the roof of your mouth with an adhesive material or metal framework that clips onto your remaining healthy teeth. Dentures offer a convenient affordable solution for restoring your smile and self-confidence. To find out if a partial or full denture may be right for you, schedule a consultation today!

Oral Surgeries

Sometimes oral surgeries may be needed to prep your mouth for dental implant treatment, remove teeth that are growing in improperly, or correct severe orthodontic issues.

Bone grafts are another common oral surgery that helps replace jaw bone mass and promote regrowth. Patients who have weakened jawbones due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or the natural aging process may be good candidates for this treatment. Bone grafts are often done prior to a dental implant placement to ensure the jaw bone will be able to retain an implant.

Extractions may be needed if a patient is receiving full dentures or full-arch dental implants. Because a full-arch of artificial teeth requires the extraction of all remaining teeth, we will only recommend this treatment option if we can not restore your smile using other, less invasive procedures.

The Benefits Of Restorative Dentistry

Oral Health

The primary benefit of restorative dentistry is improved oral health. Damaged or missing teeth can lead to a host of other problems, including further tooth decay, gum disease, and even bone loss. By addressing these issues early, restorative dentistry can prevent more serious complications and promote healthier gums and teeth.


Restorative dentistry can significantly enhance your appearance. Missing or damaged teeth can affect your smile and lower your self-esteem. With restorative treatments, we can rebuild your smile, making it complete and attractive again. Whether it's a crown, bridge, or implant, we strive to provide results that look natural and beautiful.


One of the major advantages of restorative dentistry is the restoration of mouth functionality. Missing or damaged teeth can make it difficult to eat certain foods or speak clearly. Restorative procedures can restore these abilities, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with ease.
