Restorative Dentistry in Chestnut Hill, MA

Your dentist at Hammond Pond Dental Group is available to provide a number of dental procedures. These treatments are useful for addressing any dental issues you may have in order to restore your oral health.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

There are several treatments that are included under restorative dentistry at Hammond Pond Dental Group. They can effectively manage a variety of oral health problems and can be performed by a general dentist. Your dentist in Chestnut Hill is proud to be able to offer these services to help you maintain good oral health.

What Procedures Are Available in Restorative Dentistry?

Popular treatments in restorative dentistry include fillings, crowns, and bridges. There are generally two types of dental restorations that your dentist may use:

  • Direct: refers to a treatment that is applied directly onto a tooth that has been prepared by having any decay removed, then cleaned thoroughly. Direct dental restorations can usually be completed in just one appointment.
  • Indirect: must be prepared in a dental laboratory before they can be placed onto a tooth to treat an issue. These include fixtures like crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges. Because they must be prepared, indirect restoration treatments require more than one appointment to our dentistry near you in Chestnut Hill.

Common problems that restorative dentistry can address include decayed, damaged, worn, and even missing teeth. Your dentist can utilize a variety of materials to complete a restoration, such as porcelain, gold, or composite resin. The material used will depend on factors such as the type of dental issue, its location in the mouth, and personal preference.

Our team at Hammond Pond Dental Group is proud to offer the patients of Chestnut Hill quality dental care. We understand that some patients may feel nervous about receiving treatment, so we are happy to offer sedation dentistry as well. Make an appointment to visit our office soon if you require any type of treatment to restore health to your teeth.
