Restorative Dentistry

If you’re looking for local dentists in Bucks County, look no further than Highpoint Dental. With an array of services and treatments, as well as years of combined experience, we offer patients the close-to-home comfort of reliable service. In addition to preventative care, child dentistry services, and implant dentistry, we provide restorative dentistry treatments for those with compromised teeth.

Generally speaking, this type of dentistry works to manage the effects of diseases on the teeth and their supporting structures. This can range from purely aesthetic issues to functionality requiring rehabilitation. Patients with these types of needs may also have experienced complications from cavities or trauma to the teeth, such as through a fall or other accident resulting in damaging impact. Our local dentists in Bucks County who practice this type of dentistry have specialized in endodontics, prosthodontics, and periodontics. 

More simply put, restorative dentistry is a branch which includes treatments designed to repair or replace damaged teeth, restoring a healthy bite and vibrant smile. Undergoing such treatments with our experienced local dentists in Bucks County can assist with an array of oral health conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Dental decay
  • Missing teeth
  • Cracks
  • Eroded/weak teeth.

In some cases, disease and decay can be fixed, if it is caught early enough and before permanent damage is done. However, in the event that the issue is not detected or treatment is neglected, the decay will spread, requiring restorative methods of intervention. While the prevention of decay and the preservation of one’s real tooth is always the primary goal of restorative dentistry, the reality is that many people will require restorations at some point in their lives. Like most other dental treatments, restorations do not last forever and the length of their viability will depend on a variety of factors, both internal and external. As such, their ‘shelf lives’ vary dramatically from patient to patient.

At HighPoint Dental, our restorative dentistry services include the following:

  • Onlays
  • Inlays
  • Veneers
  • Crowns 
  • Bridges
  • Root canals
  • Composites
  • Fillings

While our team is ready to provide these services whenever our patients may need, our approach is always prevention first, when possible. This is just another benefit to undergoing regular dental visits twice per year. By having routine check-ups, bacteria that leads to infection decay, and disease can be addressed long before restoration becomes necessary. Call to schedule your appointment today or visit us at www.highpointdental.com for more information. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
