Restorative dental services rank high on the list of things that most people never want to experience in their lifetime. The good news is that most restorative dental services are avoidable. The best way to avoid ever needing these services is by taking great care of your teeth on a daily basis, starting at a young age.
Unfortunately, most people will need a root canal, crown, and/or dental implant at some point in their lifetime. A great oral hygiene routine won’t always save you from unforeseen accidents and infections that can result in lost, broken, or chipped teeth.
At 1st Family Dental, we take pride in providing the very best restorative services in the area and being able to help our patient restore their smile and rebuild their confidence.
A great replacement option for missing teeth, ideal for replacing one or many teeth. Save over $500!
A root canal is a treatment option designed to save a tooth that is infected, inflamed, or damaged.
Dental crowns fit on top of your existing teeth, or are placed over a dental implant.
Our Restorative Dentistry Services Include:
Dental implants are a great long term tooth replacement option. The implant process begins with installing a titanium post that will act like the root of your tooth. After a period of healing, the post actually fuses with the jaw bone, creating a strong base for a crown or denture. When your implant is complete you will have a replacement tooth that looks and feels like a real tooth.

Dentures are a common affordable choice for anyone that’s lost one or more teeth. However, they do not replace missing teeth since they are removable and do not attach to the jaw like real tooth or dental implants. While a full or partial denture set won’t “restore” your missing tooth or teeth, it can cover the spaces left by missing teeth so it looks like real teeth to others. Dentures are secured using a temporary bonding agent and are removed each night before bed.
Our team at 1st Family Dental can offer a fast turnaround once the initial fitting is complete. Dentures typically last about 5-8 years. After that, you’ll find that they become worn from regular use and they do not adhere as well to your gums, which tend to shrink and change shape as you get older.
If you have an infected or badly damaged tooth, a root canal is usually your best option. Root canal treatment is designed to remove the inside part of the damaged tooth in order to save the root and outside of the tooth, while still relieving your pain.
Basically, a root canal saves the shell of the tooth in order to avoid extraction or having to replace the damaged tooth with a dental implant. The root canal procedure has a scary name and a bad reputation but with proper numbing and a great dentist, it’s a nearly pain free experience.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are basically porcelain that look and feel like real teeth. Some call them the “workhorses” of the dental world since they do everything real teeth can do. In fact, if you need a crown after a root canal or dental implant, you’ll barely be able to tell the difference between the crown and your real teeth. The great news is that no one else will be able to tell the difference between the crown and your real teeth, either.
Full Mouth Reconstructions
Full mouth reconstructions are needed when someone has many missing or damaged teeth and would like to completely restore their smile. The process can include a variety of restorative and cosmetic treatments, depending on your situation and needs.
