Restorative Dentistry Q&A

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry improves your tooth function. This dental specialty aims to restore the shape and size of your teeth and protect your tooth health and bite. Dr. Solemaninejad may recommend restorative procedures if you have damaged or decayed teeth. 

While restorative procedures don’t focus on enhancing the appearance of your teeth, many can improve cosmetic concerns as well.

When is restorative dentistry needed?

At Arlington Dental Care, Dr. Solemaninejad often recommends restorative treatments to treat:

  • Tooth decay (cavities)
  • Chipped teeth
  • Fractured teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Malocclusions (bad bites)
  • Missing teeth

After a comprehensive dental exam, Dr. Solemaninejad can recommend the appropriate restorative treatment for you.

What are the different types of restorative dentistry?

Arlington Dental Care offers a wide range of restorative treatments, including:


Fillings are cavity treatments that restore the shape and size of decayed teeth. After removing decay from your tooth, Dr. Solemaninejad fills the empty space with either metal or composite resin materials.


Crowns are custom-made caps shaped like teeth. They fit over the visible portion of damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, and color. Crowns also seal out bacteria and protect vulnerable teeth from damage.


A bridge is a fixed device that replaces missing teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns with an artificial tooth in the center. The crowns fit over your surrounding teeth to stabilize the bridge.


Bonding is a process that uses composite resin materials to repair chips and cracks in your smile. This fast, cost-effective treatment can also fill in tooth gaps.


Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that can straighten crooked teeth and correct bite problems with clear aligners. Unlike braces, which bond to your teeth, Invisalign is transparent and removable. Others may not be able to tell you’re wearing them.

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium tooth roots that Dr. Solemaninejad surgically places if you have missing teeth. Once placed, dental implants connect to your replacement teeth to secure them in place.

Full mouth reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction combined multiple restorative treatments to repair damage and improve your tooth function.
