Benefits of Restorative Dentistry


Restorative dentistry has many benefits and our smiles are the first thing you see. If you have damaged teeth, this can affect both your oral and overall health. Restorative dentistry at Turlock Dental Care can help you address any problems, and help to replace or repair damaged or decayed teeth. Restoring your smile can be life-changing and allow you to live a healthy lifestyle.


Improved Appearance


Restorative dentistry can help restore your teeth, treat discoloration, and give you a bright white smile. You will look and feel younger with your brand-new smile. Correcting your smile can boost self-confidence and allow you to speak and smile comfortably around others.


Function Is Improved


If you suffer from broken or cracked teeth, your chewing function is directly impacted. Correcting your smile can help you properly chew your food, and avoid pain from a damaged tooth. Restorative dentistry at Turlock Dental Care can give you improved chewing power and allow you to enjoy eating all the foods you love.


Cost Savings in the Long Term


When you restore your smile, you are investing in a long-term solution. This can help you avoid future costly dental treatments and preserve damaged teeth. At Turlock Dental Care our goal is to always try and save your natural teeth. Our restorative dental services can improve your dental and overall health, and increase your self-esteem. Investing in your smile is important, and at Turlock Dental Care we have the right restorative options to help you get that smile of your dreams.


Preserve Bone in the Jaw


Decayed teeth that cannot be saved may need to be extracted, and we have many teeth replacement options at Turlock Dental Care. Dental implants can help to replace a tooth and prevent future bone loss in the jaw. Leaving gaps in your smile can cause other neighboring teeth to move or become loose. Implants can hold teeth in place and prevent your jaw from weakening.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?


Restorative dentistry can help repair decayed, cracked, or missing teeth and can give patients that smile they have always wanted. At Turlock Dental Care we love to create beautiful smiles for our patients to help restore confidence and overall mouth function. Restorative dentistry includes one or many treatments combined depending on your needs. Our doctors at Turlock Dental Care always make your oral health a priority and can help give you a smile that is functional and natural-looking.

When Would I Need Restorative Dentistry?


Restorative dentistry is great for patients that have issues such as cracked, missing, or broken teeth, or those that have suffered facial trauma. If you suffer from periodontal disease or tooth decay, restorative dentistry can help you treat those problems and avoid serious dental issues in the future. Depending on the severity of the correction, our doctors will determine which restorative treatments are best and create a customized treatment plan that works for you. Turlock Dental Care can improve the look of your smile and allow you to speak and eat easily without pain. Our restorative dentistry services can improve your oral health and protect your natural teeth.

Restorative Dentistry Procedures Offered at Turlock Dental Care

Dental Crowns


Dental crowns help to replace a tooth that is severely decayed or cracked.  If the tooth can not be repaired with a filling, a dental crown can be placed over the natural tooth to restore the tooth’s function and protect the tooth from further decay. During the crown procedure, the natural tooth is gently filed down by our doctors to prepare the tooth for the crown. This helps to ensure proper fit and allows the crown to fit snugly around the tooth. The crown is then secured with a cement material and this preserves the tooth’s root and restores overall function. Crowns are custom-made to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. They look and feel natural, and can give you a beautiful smile. Turlock Dental Care is proud to offer same-day CEREC crowns. Patients can have their smile restored in just one appointment while their crown is milled right in our office.

Teeth Implants


Dental implants are a tooth replacement solution and can help replace missing teeth or replace teeth that cannot be saved. During an implant procedure, our doctors place the implant into the jaw bone and the implant acts similar to a tooth’s root. Once the implant has healed and fused with the jawbone, the patient returns to our office, and an abutment or connector piece is used to securely attach the crown on top.


Implants bond with your jawbone and provide exceptional chewing power and strength. They are a permanent solution, are durable, and last for years without the need for replacement. Implants look and function like our natural teeth, and can allow patients to eat and enjoy all of the food they love. Depending on the severity and number of teeth needing replacement, implants can be placed in one day or may require multiple appointments.

Dentures are a solution to replace missing teeth and can replace a full or partial arch of teeth. Traditional dentures are kept in place by a dental adhesive material. They feel comfortable and help your mouth to function normally. Traditional dentures are custom made and are attached to a gum-colored mold that fits comfortably against your gums. They can be removed easily for cleaning or sleeping.


Fixed dentures can be anchored to natural teeth on either side of the artificial teeth, or can be anchored by dental implants. Implant dentures involve our doctors first placing the implant on either side of the denture. Once the implant is healed this creates a permanent anchor for your dentures. This option can provide greater strength and durability, with no worry of the dentures slipping or becoming loose.

Root Canals


Root canals are required if the pulp area of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. This infection can cause the tooth to decay and if not treated this can lead to tooth loss. At Turlock Dental Care we perform Root canals to help to clean out and remove the infected pulp in the root area of the tooth. During the procedure, our doctors will clean out and seal the area to prevent further bacteria from entering. Once this is complete a crown may be placed on top to preserve your natural tooth. Root canals can save your natural teeth and restore their function without the need for extraction.

Bridges are another tooth replacement option and include two crowns on either side of the artificial tooth. Impressions are taken of your mouth and sent out to a lab to prepare the bridge. The adjacent teeth are prepared and shaved down, and crowns are placed on top to restore function and strength. These teeth serve as the anchors for the bridge and hold the device in place.


Bridges are a great way to correct your smile and avoid teeth moving or causing your facial structure to collapse. Bridges can also be supported by dental implants on either side of the bridge. This is a great option because the implant-supported bridge is not reliant on surrounding teeth. The implants are placed first into the jawbone and they act similar to artificial tooth roots. Once the implants are healed, they are attached to the bridge to restore your smile.

Tooth-colored Fillings


There are many dental fillings in the dental world today, but our team at Turlock Dental Care is proud to use composite fillings for your benefit!


A composite filling in Turlock, California, offers natural-looking results and can restore a tooth’s health after it has been damaged by decay. Composite fillings can also fix many other dental problems, like cracked, fractured, or broken teeth. This type of filling also provides further support for the tooth by chemically bonding to its structure. In comparison to other dental fillings, composite fillings also preserve more of the tooth’s structure when they are being placed. This is a great option that not only restores the health of your tooth but also provides an aesthetically pleasing result.


The process of placing a dental filling is simple and painless. It will first involve our doctors numbing your tooth and the surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When your mouth is numb, they will remove the decay, deeply clean the tooth and fill it with the composite filling, layer by layer. When the tooth is completely full, our dentists will trim and shape the top of the filling to make it fit perfectly with your bite.
