What To Expect
At Lee, Bonfiglio, Vesely & Associates, we believe that the best dentistry is a collaborative process between the dentist and patient. Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring health, beauty and stability to teeth that are worn, broken or missing.
When you visit our Annapolis dental office, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals with the dentist and be an active part of the treatment planning process.
A comprehensive examination and thorough dental cleaning is an essential step in helping us identify any oral health problems such as tooth decay, gum disease or occlusal (bite) disorders.
A restorative dental consultation typically includes:
- Digital dental x-rays
- Other diagnostic dental imaging
- Screening for gum disease, tooth decay and oral cancer
- Occlusal analysis and examination of temporomandibular joints (TMJ)
Comprehensive Treatment Planning
Restorative dentistry focuses on fixing the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms. We take a comprehensive approach to your care and will seek to identify any undiagnosed dental problems that can compromise the integrity of your result. Once our thorough analysis is completed, then we will be able to create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and that will support your long-term dental health.
Payment & Dental Insurance Info
Many people sacrifice their dental health because they think they can’t afford it. There’s a cost, though, that comes with not visiting the dentist. Little problems can escalate into bigger problems and become much more difficult and costly to treat.
In our Annapolis dental office, we strive to make your dental visit a positive and relaxing experience. Part of our dental care includes working with you on the financial aspects of your treatment. We work with most dental insurance providers and can help you minimize your cost by maximizing insurance benefits. In addition, we offer CareCredit financing for major treatment plans.
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
What is the goal of restorative dentistry?
Restorative dental care is meant to repair damaged teeth or restore missing teeth. When we provide restorative dentistry services, we want to renew the full function of the smile.
Which restoration is the strongest?
One of the most popular dental restorations provided by restorative dentists are dental crowns. They totally cover and cap a tooth, regardless of size or shape, making them one of the strongest and most long-lasting restoration choices.
Is a root canal considered a restoration?
When there is excessive damage to a tooth structure, doing a root canal as part of the dental restoration procedure is the only option to keep a badly decaying or infected tooth from being extracted. A root canal is classified under restorative dentistry.
Can you restore just one missing tooth?
Yes, you can receive a dental bridge or a dental implant. We often recommend a dental implant over a bridge because implants last longer. Dental implants also help improve speech and bite function because they replace missing teeth at the root.
Do I need dental bridges or partial dentures?
Bridges and partial dentures can restore multiple missing teeth. However, dental bridges only replace consecutive missing teeth or missing teeth in a single row. Partial dentures can restore rows of missing teeth in different parts of the smile.
Am I a candidate for same-day teeth?
If you have missing teeth and enough jaw bone to secure an implant restoration, you are a good candidate for same-day teeth. We can also ensure that you are healthy and have sufficient jaw bone with bone grafting before treatment.
