We all work hard to keep our smiles healthy with daily brushing and flossing and regular trips to the dentist, but even the most diligent oral hygiene routine can have gaps that allow for tooth decay or damage. That’s where a restorative dentist comes into play. A good restorative dentist will provide treatments that preserve the maximum amount of natural tooth structure and recreate lost dental shape and function. A restorative dentist does all of this while keeping in mind the way any treatment will impact the appearance of the smile and overall health. Suffice to say, finding a good restorative dentist is key to keeping a healthy, happy smile on your face. The good news is, the general dentist you trust with your routine oral health and hygiene visits is likely also a skilled restorative dentistry practitioner.
