Restorative Dentistry in Coventry
If you've suffered a broken tooth, decay or tooth loss, restorative dentistry can help to restore function and prevent further damage to your oral health. This includes private and NHS dentistry.
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry concerned with preserving function. If you have a broken tooth, a decaying tooth or a missing tooth, restorative treatments will help to restore your bite and your smile. This is important as gaps in your smile, chips and decaying teeth can all have a negative impact on your wider oral health. We offer restorative dental treatments such as fillings, crowns, inlays, onlays, and bridges to help restore your smile and avoid issues in the future.
Protect and restore strength to teeth with a custom porcelain crown. This treatment is commonly used after root canal therapy to protect the tooth from damage, but it can also be used following extensive decay, chips or cracks.
Inlays and Onlays
Custom porcelain inlays and onlays are required to restore a tooth when a filling wouldn't be enough but a crown would be too much. Inlays sit in the cusp of the tooth while onlays sit over the edge, covering one or more cusps.
The simplest way to replace a missing tooth. A bridge uses one or two crowns attached to surrounding teeth to support a pontic (artificial tooth). You will be able to smile, speak and chew with confidence again.
Achieve a dramatic transformation and address the issues that are damaging your confidence. This treatment plan could include a wide range of treatments including orthodontics, whitening, composite bonding and dental implants.
Benefits of restorative dentistry
Restorative dentistry helps to restore teeth that have been broken or suffered from decay. It includes treatments like crowns, bridges and root canal treatment. While it might help to improve aesthetics, it is very different to cosmetic dentistry because it also helps to enhance oral health.

Restorative dentistry is ideal for situations where you have a broken, decaying or missing tooth. The focus of restorative dentistry is on restoring your smile and ensuring proper function of the mouth and jaw.
There are several options for a missing tooth. You could choose a dental implant to replace the missing tooth. you could also choose a dental bridge to conceal the gap. If your tooth was extracted due to overcrowding, orthodontics may be used to close the gap. And finally, you could also leave a gap in your smile, but this is not recommended due to the risk of bone loss in your jaw.
Yes, we can use a variety of methods to restore a broken tooth, including crowns, onlays, veneers and composite bonding.
Wherever possible, we will always encourage you to save the natural tooth rather than choosing extraction. In some cases, your tooth might be too badly damaged and we would recommend extraction. In this case, we will also advise on replacement options.
I have just seen the hygienist who cleaned my teeth. I am so delighted with the result. I didn't know I have such pretty teeth. They are professionals and they worked hard to remove my terrible stains and plaque. I am nervous about attending a dentist practice but they were very kind and helpful. Cannot praise them enough. Thank you.

Excellent treatment and very prompt
The check up was undertaken and no treatment was necessary.
Dentist was very professional. Took time to ask about my teeth and if I had any issues or concerns. Did a scale and polish which was very good and not uncomfortable, unlike other visits. Advised me on different toothpaste for sensitive teeth. Arranged further appointment quickly for other work needed. I am happy with the service. Thanks.
The doctor was so nice and helpful. He listened to us and explained every thing very well.
Was treated quickly and respectfully by all staff from start to finish.
Needed to see a dentist quickly due to losing a tooth. Was offered an appointment 2 days later which I was grateful for. Managed to park in their small car park at the rear of the surgery. If this is full, there is free public parking in the underground car park at the Forum shops opposite. Only waited a couple of minutes before being called through to see the dentist who was friendly and helpful. She explained the options available to me and I made the decision to go down the cheapest route by having my small denture plate extended rather than a new one. Impressions were taken there and then and a further appointment booked for 12 days time for the fitting. Very pleased with the whole experience.
