Restorative Dentistry

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are recommended to prevent further damage from tooth decay. This usually occurs when bacteria break down the enamel and create cavities. If left untreated, cavities can grow larger over time, causing pain and discomfort when biting or chewing food.

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Crowns

If your tooth is compromised by larger cavities, fractures, or is root canal treated, a crown may be recommended to restore your tooth. Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that fit over a tooth preparation created by your dentist to help protect your tooth and restore it to normal function. Crowns are typically made of porcelain and may also be recommended for cosmetic purposes, to allow you to smile with confidence!

Restorative Dentistry

Same-Day Crowns

No one likes to deal with a broken, cracked, or severely decayed tooth. It can be painful and stressful, but thanks to same-day crowns, you can restore your tooth in a single visit. This allows you to skip the temporary restoration and long wait for your permanent crown. Same-day crowns are custom-made from high-quality, durable materials and color-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. With our state-of-the-art digital imaging and CAD/CAM technology, your appointment will be over in 2 hours or less, so you can start smiling again!

Restorative Dentistry

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches are often a sign of infection and can cause serious discomfort. A tooth may require a root canal if it has a deep cavity, is fractured, or has had trauma. A root canal may help to save your tooth from extraction and provide you with much needed relief.

Restorative Dentistry


Extractions are always our last option - saving your smile is our number one priority. A tooth may require an extraction if it is deemed non-restorable from extensive decay, fracture, or trauma. With gentle techniques and local anesthesia or sedation, teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort.

Dental Implants

Missing a tooth? Need an extraction? The look of your smile, functionality of your bite, and overall oral health can all be restored by a dental implant. Dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting tooth replacement, and the only one that actually halts the progression of bone loss. They are the gold standard for tooth replacement, so get in touch with us to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants!

Restorative Dentistry

Dental Bridges

There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your dentist about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!

Restorative Dentistry


Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of a combination of acrylic and metal and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.

What Are Some Examples of Restorative Dentistry?

Some common examples of restorative dental treatments include dental fillings that repair mild to moderate dental decay and dental crowns that cover fractured teeth. Other restorative dental treatments are dental bridges, implants, dentures, onlays and inlays. Compost bonding and veneers are sometimes used as restorative dental treatments.

Is Restorative Dentistry Worth It?

Yes, restorative dentistry is worth it for various reasons. First, it restores full functionality to mutilated teeth so you can comfortably chew and bite your food to enjoy your favorite meals. It also restores the tooth’ structure and provides a platform for your tongue to rest on when pronouncing certain words, resulting in fluent and coherent speech.

Restorative dentistry is also great for aesthetics. Severely cracked or chipped teeth can be a huge eyesore and can make you less attractive, locking out opportunities to meet new friends and romantic partners. Dental restorations reverse these disfigurements for a beautiful smile that increases your appeal.

Another reason why restorative dentistry is worth your time and money is it prevents further damage and future dental complications. For instance, applying pressure on a cracked tooth while biting only widens the crack. The crack creates a hiding spot for bacteria to proliferate, leading to dental decay. If left unchecked, the entire tooth becomes compromised and deteriorates completely.

What Is the Difference Between Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry?

Cosmetic and restorative dentistry are closely related but different nonetheless. The former specializes in improving the overall appearance of the teeth and gum, while the latter is about restoring the appearance and functionality of damaged or disfigured teeth.

Cosmetic dentistry is more aesthetic-centric and pays little thought to the teeth's overall functionality and structural integrity. The goal is to make the teeth and gums appear as visually pleasing as possible. Examples of cosmetic dental procedures include teeth whitening, veneers, gum contouring, and dental bonding.

Restorative dentistry is etched in restoring the tooth's structure, which sometimes coincides with its appearance. However, unlike cosmetic dentistry, the focus is to ensure the damaged teeth hold up to bite pressure and are healthy enough to withstand bacterial infections and corrosive substances as natural permanent teeth would.

What Is the Goal of Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry aims to restore the full functionality of worn-out or severely damaged teeth. In doing so, patients can enjoy their meals and speak coherently as they would with their natural teeth. Dentists will decide the best type of restorative treatment, depending on the nature and severity of the damage.

What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Procedures?

Improves Appearance
Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your smile, making you more attractive. Your smile is one of your most noticeable features, and a beautiful smile is sure to score you some social points and improve how people perceive you.
Confidence Boost
Cosmetic dental treatments give you a more beautiful smile, making you more confident and eager to interact with others. This confidence boost is especially advantageous in social situations since it allows you to be yourself and feel comfortable in your skin.
Short Recovery Time
Unlike most dental procedures, cosmetic procedures usually have a short recovery time. This means you can resume your usual diet and routine sometimes immediately after treatment. However, always follow the dentist’s instructions for the best results.

What is preventative dentistry?

Preventative dentistry is a proactive approach to oral healthcare that focuses on maintaining good dental health and preventing the development of various dental problems. This branch of dentistry encompasses a range of services and practices aimed at keeping your teeth and gums healthy, rather than just addressing issues after they arise.

At the core of preventative dentistry is the idea that it's better to prevent dental problems before they start, rather than waiting until a more extensive and costly treatment is required. By implementing simple, routine measures, preventative dentistry empowers patients to take an active role in preserving their oral health for the long term.

Why is preventative dentistry important?

Preventative dentistry is essential for maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile throughout your lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings allow your dentist, Dr. Jacqueline Rodriguez at Diversey Dental Studio, to identify and address potential issues before they escalate into more serious problems.

By catching things like cavities, gum disease, or enamel wear in their earliest stages, preventative dentistry makes treatment more effective and less invasive. This not only saves you time and discomfort, but it can also significantly reduce the financial burden of extensive dental work down the line.

Beyond the immediate benefits, preventative dentistry also plays a crucial role in your overall health and well-being. Poor oral hygiene has been linked to a variety of systemic health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. By prioritizing preventative care, you can help minimize these risks and maintain a higher quality of life.

How often should I visit the dentist for preventative dentistry?

The general recommendation for preventative dental visits is to see your dentist twice a year, or every six months. This allows Dr. Rodriguez to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, perform professional cleanings, and identify any potential problems early on.

However, the exact frequency of your dental visits may vary depending on your individual oral health needs. Factors such as your risk of dental disease, the condition of your teeth and gums, and your personal oral hygiene habits can all influence how often you should visit the dentist.

During your regular check-ups, Dr. Rodriguez will work closely with you to determine the optimal schedule for preventative care. Some patients may require more frequent visits, while others may be able to maintain good oral health with annual check-ups. The key is to work closely with your dentist to develop a preventative dentistry plan that's tailored to your unique needs.
