Restorative Dentistry in Wareham, MA

You need to seek professional dental care when your teeth have a problem. At Southcoast Dental in Wareham, Massachusetts, we offer a full range of restorative dentistry services to return your mouth to a healthy condition.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry focuses on fixing dental problems such as tooth decay, cracked teeth, chipped teeth, missing teeth, or worn down teeth. We offer several restorations to restore function and health to your teeth, including fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, root canals, and more. If something is wrong inside your mouth, we will provide you with an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan. We will always explain your treatment options thoroughly so that you can decide on the best course of action.

What is the Difference between Cosmetic Dentistry and Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry services restore teeth to a healthy condition. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of your teeth. Most of the time, if you have a damaged or missing tooth, you will need a restorative procedure. Dental insurance plans often cover all or part of restorative services and do not cover cosmetic services because cosmetic services are considered optional.

Restorative Dental Services at Southcoast Dental

At our dental office in Wareham, Massachusetts, we offer the following restorative dental services:

  • Tooth-colored fillings: Fillings go into a decayed area of your tooth, protecting it from further decay and restoring the function of the tooth.
  • Dental crowns: A crown is a durable cap that covers and protects a severely damaged tooth. We can create a crown that looks and acts just like a normal tooth.
  • Dental bridges: If you are missing teeth, we can make a metal bridge holding replacement teeth. It is anchored on crowns that cover the two teeth at the sides of the gap.
  • Dentures: Full or partial dentures replace your missing teeth. The dentures are removable and customized to fit your mouth.
  • Dental implant restorations: A dental implant is a metal rod or screw that acts like a tooth root in your jaw. After it is surgically positioned and allowed to heal, we can attach a replacement tooth or a bridge of teeth to the implant.
  • Root canal treatment: A root canal removes the infection deep inside your tooth’s root, often saving the natural tooth.

No matter what is wrong with your teeth, our knowledgeable staff will figure out the problem and form an effective plan to improve it. Dr. Kiehl is very friendly and accommodating, and he has years of experience in every type of restorative dentistry.
