Dentistry today has evolved into a number of specialized fields that can address almost any dental health problem and help patients keep their natural teeth in good health for a lifetime!

Restorative procedures can repair and strengthen a damaged tooth, avoiding the need for a tooth extraction. Modern dentistry emphasizes that it is always in the best interest of a patient to keep their natural teeth as this also supports a healthy bite: losing a tooth can lead to bone loss in the jaw and shifting of other teeth which can disrupt the natural function of the bite.

Charlotte area dentist Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers restorative dentistry to his dental patients and has over 20 years of experience as well as extensive post graduate education in the treatment of complex dental problems. Restorative dentistry can also replace a tooth that is missing or too damaged to repair. Dr. Van Gurp offers dental implants and dental bridges for patients who have lost a tooth. Dental implants offer the most comfortable, natural looking and functioning results and can also help to stabilize bone loss because of the implanted post that fuses with the bone and becomes a natural part of a patient’s occlusal system.

Restorative Procedures:

Dental crowns: a dental crown is often used to repair a damaged or decayed tooth, providing a “cap” that will strengthen and secure the tooth;
Dental Veneers: also used for cosmetic changes, veneers can also be used to repair minor tooth damage and maintain the integrity of a natural tooth;
Dental Bridges: bridges can be used as a conservative method to replace a missing tooth, or teeth, using neighboring teeth as support for a custom fit prosthetic tooth;
Dental Implants: often considered the best long term option for replacing missing teeth, implants function much like a natural tooth.

In addition to regular preventive care, restorative dentistry is an important part of maintaining you oral health!
