Restorative Dentistry Cheltenham
Restorative dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and management of dental and oral diseases.
Your Cheltenham dentist may recommend a customised treatment plan to restore decayed, chipped, cracked, discoloured, or even missing teeth.
Whether it’s a tooth filling, dental implant, crown, or bridge, there are many different options available depending on need.
Restorative Dentistry Treatment Options
Dental implants address missing teeth so you can achieve a complete, beautiful smile.
The dental implant integrates with the bone to hold and support a dental prosthesis such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Crowns and Bridges
Unlike removable dental appliances such as dentures, which you can take out and clean every day, crowns and bridges are fixed onto teeth or implants.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile.
If you have missing teeth, wearing dentures will benefit your appearance and health since they make it more convenient to eat and speak better than you could with missing teeth.
When you lose all your teeth, your facial muscles can sag, making you look older. Dentures can help enhance your facial appearance.
Tips for Taking Care of your Restorations
- Brush your teeth at least twice every day. Electric toothbrushes can help clean plaque off your teeth and restorations.
- Floss in between your teeth, dental implants, crowns, bridges and underneath the gumline every day.
- Do not bite and chew on hard or sticky foods. These can damage your dental implant, bridge, or crown.
- Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to help fight plaque bacteria around restorations.

What tooth replacement options do I have?
Why should I save my tooth? Can't I just have it extracted?
