It’s likely you’ve heard of “cosmetic dentistry.”  But “restorative dentistry” may not be quite as familiar a term. In essence, restorative dentistry is all about the procedures and treatments your dentist performs to keep your mouth healthy and function well: fillings, crowns, dentures and more. From filling cavities to strengthening and protecting missing or broken teeth, restorative dentistry keeps little issues from becoming big problems down the road.
