Restorative Dental Treatment in Mesa
Teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. The most common issues include cavities that need to be filled to prevent further decay, replacing missing teeth with implants, or bridges, and broken teeth which can be strengthened and protected with crowns (also known as caps).
Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance, and function.
Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss all available options with you and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is always our number one priority.

Common Dental Restoration Services
- Crowns – Aa tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are also used to hold a bridge in place, or to cover a dental implant.
- Bridges – False teeth that are designed to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be anchored on either side by crowns and are then cemented into place permanently.
- Implants – The closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth, and replace the roots of your tooth. Implants are made of metal and placed into the bone socket where teeth are missing. The implant may need an attachment called an abutment that will act like a crown preparation. The next step is covering it with a crown.
- Tooth Colored Fillings – The most common type of dental restoration. Teeth can be filled with gold, silver amalgam, or tooth-colored plastic and glass materials called composite resin fillings
