Restorative Dentistry

Request Appointment

Restorative dentistry refers to the different procedures used to repair dental damage caused by disease or injury. Restorative treatment can be as small as placing a dental veneer over a stained or cracked tooth or as extensive as a multi-procedure full mouth reconstruction. At Dental Healing Arts, we use our combined decades of experience, state-of-the-art technology, and innovative biological dental practices to deliver safe and effective restorative treatments.

What is Full Reconstruction?

Unfortunately, damaged or broken teeth will not heal naturally. As a result, the impaired chewing, oral pain, tooth sensitivity, and hampered speaking ability will not just go away and will require a dentist’s care. Over the years, Dr. Fotek has received ample experience performing full mouth reconstructions for many patients. This process entails one or more restorative dentistry procedures at our state-of-the-art Jupiter office.

What Treatments Are Part of a Full Reconstruction?

Dental Implants

Missing one or a few teeth can have a devastating effect on your overall health. It can affect your ability to speak clearly as well as your ability to eat your favorite foods. As a result, many patients with missing teeth suffer from malnutrition.  

However, ceramic dental implants are a long-lasting and secure solution for missing teeth. Being Board Certified in Dental Implant Surgery along with years of advanced training in the many phases of advanced grafting and dental implant placement, Dr. Fotek has renewed the brilliance and function of hundreds of smiles using dental implants.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are all-ceramic tooth-shaped covers designed to restore the function and beauty of teeth damaged by infection, decay, and trauma. At Dental Healing Arts, we use e.max® ceramic dental crowns for superior durability, enhanced strength, and brilliant aesthetics.  

We will work diligently to ensure your crown looks and feels as much like your natural tooth color as possible. As a result, your dental crowns will blend and restore your mouth to full function. Dental crowns allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about any dental mishaps.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that are used to replace missing teeth by anchoring to neighboring teeth or dental implants. They work by bridging the gap created by the missing teeth and restoring the function and appearance of the patient's smile.

Dental bridges are typically used when one or more teeth are missing and the gap needs to be filled. They are usually made of a combination of materials, including porcelain, metal, and ceramics, and they are custom-made to fit the patient's mouth.

A good candidate for dental bridges is someone who has lost one or more teeth but has remaining healthy teeth and gums that can support the bridge. It is also important that the patient has good oral hygiene habits and is committed to maintaining good oral health.

Patients with gum disease or decayed teeth may need treatment before receiving a dental bridge.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If you needed to treat a cavity, it used to mean your smile would be hampered by gray and metal fillings. Although these fillings were effective, metal fillings made it difficult to smile confidently, not to mention that many contained mercury, a toxic substance to the human body.

Tooth-colored biocompatible fillings are made with a natural-looking composite material that is safe and designed to last just as long, if not longer. Best of all, we can match your filling with your natural tooth color, which means no one ever has to know you have a filling in the first place. Surprisingly, the dynamic strength of the porcelain material is so outstanding that it will actually strengthen your tooth.

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal disease is a common infection of the gum tissue as a result of plaque and tartar buildup. When debris from food gets lodged between your teeth, it becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, which calcify and becomes plaque. Over time, this bacterial buildup releases toxins that aggravate your gum tissue, causing swelling, soreness, and bleeding.

At Dental Healing Arts, we use several safe treatments to eliminate the presence of bacteria in your gums to combat periodontal disease. Our periodontal therapy options, under the care of Board Certified Periodontist Dr. Paul Fotek, are designed to treat both mild and severe forms of the condition.  

Dentures

Dentures are prosthetic devices that resemble the appearance and replicate the function of an entire row of teeth. Dentures can be complete or partial depending on the amount of tooth loss a patient wishes to correct. At Dental Healing Arts, we use advanced techniques and lightweight, durable materials to create exceptional-looking dentures that will feel comfortable for years.
