Restorative services are any procedures that dentists use to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth.
Fillings, crowns, bridges, implants and dentures all fall under the restorative service umbrella.
The most common way to treat a cavity is with a filling. The decay is removed by drilling into the tooth and the filling is then packed into the “cavity” that is left behind after the decay is removed. Crowns are essentially a cap that is placed over a tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth’s structure..
