Do you have tooth damage? Are your missing permanent teeth? Renew your smile with restorative dentistry. Restorative dental care helps patients renew the function and comfort of their smiles with treatments that can repair, replace and restore teeth and gum tissue. We use dental bridges, dental crowns, dentures, and dental implants to restore function and aesethtics to your smile in our office.
Dental implants are a part of our restorative dental services as they can support a dental crown, bridge, or denture for the replacement of one or more teeth. Dr. Nova uses flapless surgery, allowing patients to receive implants in just one office visit. Additionally, Dr. Nova can extract problem teeth and offer implants on the same day. Dental crowns, bridges, and dentures are restorations that work with dental implants to revitalize patients’ smiles.
Restorative Dentistry Services in Owings Mills, MD
Restorative dentistry focuses on the repair and replacement of your teeth. We want you to be able to chew and use your teeth to their full ability. It’s also our aim to improve your oral health and give you back confidence in showing off your smile. While restorative dentistry is geared to function with your smile, it overlaps with cosmetic dentistry when it comes to ensuring your smile is at its best.
Until there’s an issue with a damaged or missing tooth, you may not realize how much they have on your smile. Every tooth counts when it comes to speaking or chewing properly. You shouldn’t have to remove foods from your diet because you can’t chew and digest them properly. Restorative dentistry helps to prevent this from happening.

A bridge is a prosthetic that replaces one or more consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants or adjacent teeth can secure dental bridges. Traditional bridges require the support of prepared teeth adjacent to a tooth gap. Implants do not require any preparation to secure false teeth. Implants provide a stable foundation for your bridge to rest on. With a dental bridge, patients restore the appearance of their smiles and prevent missing tooth problems like shifting teeth and dental infections. To learn more about dental bridges and how they can benefit your smile, see Dental Bridges.
A dental crown is a cap that fully covers single teeth. Patients with worn, shortened, chipped, cracked, and otherwise damaged teeth benefit from dental crowns. Additionally, crowns can cover dental implants to create a natural-looking restoration. Implants help secure crowns and provide stability for them. They also reduce your risk of bone deterioration and tooth movement. Partial crowns, or inlays and onlays, cover the tooth’s chewing surface. They benefit patients who have tooth damage but do not require a full tooth crown. To learn more about how dental crowns can help your smile, see Dental Crowns.
Restorative Dental FAQs
Restorative dentistry can help restore your smile today. To find answers to frequently asked questions continue reading.
What are the materials used for dental crowns?
Modern crowns are made from zirconia, a strong and durable ceramic material. Although gold and silver are strong, they do not blend in with the natural smile. Zirconia offers a natural look and durability. We can color-match ceramic dental crowns to blend with the appearance of surrounding teeth. Traditional metal crowns can stand out, even on the back of the mouth.
Are partial dentures and dental bridges the same?
A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. Partial dentures also replace rows of missing teeth, but they can restore multiple rows in different areas of the mouth. Both of these restorations can be removable or secured using dental implants.
Can I receive dental implants if I already have a dental bridge or denture?
If you have a removable denture or traditional bridge, we will work with you to plan your implant treatment. Dental implants offer longer-lasting and more durable restorations for patients who require tooth replacement. We can possibly use your existing restoration or create a new denture or bridge for you as needed.
Are dental crowns my only option to cover tooth damage?
If you have a broken or worn tooth but want alternatives to dental crowns, we offer tooth bonding, inlays, and onlays. Tooth bonding is a resin material that we sculpt onto the tooth. Inlays and onlays cover damage or injuries on the surface of the tooth.
These cosmetic and restorative treatments can work for patients who may have different areas of their teeth that have damage. Oftentimes, these treatments are more economical in the long run. We will help you determine which treatment option will work for your dental concerns.
