What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restoration dentistry includes the aesthetics of your smile as well as the function of your teeth. Our advanced treatment plans are designed to restore teeth that are chipped, cracked, decayed, discolored, or even missing. A successful treatment outcome depends on patient comfort and satisfaction, and each visit should provide improvement. We design restorations to promote and enhance periodontal health, all in a relaxing, spa-like environment.
The Foundation for Successful Restorations
The longevity of your teeth depends on the health of your gums and bone, and restorations should be designed with this in mind. With optimal oral health established first, restorations connect and distribute bite force evenly, preserving the supporting structure. Other criteria for successful dental restorations include:
- Correct Diagnoses
- Patient Comfort
- Ideal Structural Design
- Periodontal Health
Sedation and Advanced Technology for Your Comfort
Our highly-trained Farmington Hills team offers a variety of sedation dentistry options to improve your dental experience. Sedation alleviates anxiety, allowing for more dental work to be completed during your visit safely and efficiently. The best part is not feeling the pain and discomfort of your procedure. Different levels of sedation can be used depending on your needs and the number of procedures needed. Before administering any sedative, we analyze your full medical history and discuss every aspect of your treatment, so you feel confident and relaxed.
Conscious Sedation can be administered orally or intravenously to produce an amnesic effect but allows you to remain conscious during treatment. The medication is taken before the appointment and then during the procedure if necessary, so you are entirely at ease the whole time.
We also use the most up-to-date technology and tools to minimize discomfort. DentalVibe uses vibration to significantly reduce pain from oral injections and deliver the anesthetic more quickly. Laser dentistry works with water and energy to remove decay and reduce trauma to the gum tissue, without the loud noise, heat, and vibration associated with the dental drill.
With advanced methods and a caring team, you benefit from shorter treatment times, less frequent visits, and quicker healing. Using these techniques also allows us to treat children more safely and effectively, making dental care convenient and comfortable for the whole family.
Options for Dental Restorations
Restorative dental treatments can repair damage and help prevent future complications. Our goal is to preserve your natural teeth as much as possible while correcting any functional or aesthetic defects. We plan and design restorative care that encourages periodontal health using only top-quality materials. From simple cavities to missing teeth, we can create a restorative treatment plan that will enhance your oral health and keep you smiling with confidence.
Composite Fillings, Inlays & Onlays
Statistically, 90 percent of adults will experience a cavity that requires a filling. Treating most cavities is a simple procedure that involves removing the decay and filling the space with a composite material that will prevent further decay and strengthen the tooth. Inlays and onlays are used for larger areas of decay, using sculpted material that matches the shape and color of your tooth. Along with dental bonding, these treatment options are the least invasive way to correct damage, the most economical, and often completed in just one appointment.
Protect Foundational Oral Structure with Crowns
Crowns are fixed prosthetic devices used to strengthen damaged teeth and can improve a tooth’s appearance, alignment, and shape. They replace the entire visible surface of a tooth like a fitted cap, providing protection and supporting normal bite function. Crowns are commonly used in root canal therapy, implants, and bridges to fortify remaining root structure. This allows you to retain important tissue and ligament connections that support healthy bone stimulation and keeps your facial features looking youthful.

Traditional Restoration Treatment Options
If you are missing one or more teeth, the most immediate concern is replacing it as soon as possible. You can choose a traditional restoration, such as a crown, partial denture, or full denture. Each of these prosthetic options involves minimal treatment time and are often the most economical choice for immediate replacement.
Traditional dentures can be used for a full arch of teeth. This removable prosthetic uses a combination of dental adhesive and natural suction to secure in place. Dentures use porcelain teeth beautifully matched to the enamel on neighboring teeth and can restore chewing function.
Partial or Fixed Bridges are a convenient and permanent restoration option. Fixed bridges prevent teeth from shifting, and they restore chewing function. They also are matched to neighboring teeth providing an appealing and natural-looking restoration.
Traditional restorations don’t address the missing tooth root, which can have more long-term consequences. Without the root in place, there is no stimulation to the bone, and it can lose density and mass. This bone loss can cause changes to the oral structure, shifting out of alignment, and aging your appearance.
Dental Implants use titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the entire tooth structure from root to crown. A porcelain crown is then securely attached to the post. This is the only restoration option that addresses the missing root and helps preserve the health of the jaw bone while also renewing full function and aesthetics.
Advanced Restorations for Tooth Replacement
Sometimes more intricate treatments are necessary to restore broken, cracked, worn down, or missing teeth. Comfort Dental Spa provides comprehensive diagnosis and a treatment plan designed just for you. We understand how personal such problems can be, so we work closely with you to provide the right solution and adjust for sensitive areas or dental anxiety.
We offer traditional tooth replacement options like dentures and partials, along with a more advanced range of treatments available using implant-supported restorations. Implants offer stability and a level of performance that is superior to other replacement choices, and they offer a permanent solution that looks and feels very natural.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Implant treatment is very versatile, and almost any prosthetic option can be accomplished, from single crowns to dentures and bridges. A full row of teeth, whether upper or lower, can be replaced using only four implants with the All-On-4 treatment method. Whether you require teeth extraction, have old restorations that need repair, or wear a denture that fits incorrectly, our practice recommends dental implant treatment as a way to restore confidence in your dental health.
Implant-Supported Bridges: Traditional bridges require using anchoring teeth, which must be adjusted and fitted with crowns. With implants, two posts can be placed and topped with two crowns and one suspended between them. There are many variations with this option, making implant-supported bridges an effective restorative option that improves oral health and function.
Implant Dentures: Regular dentures rest on top of the gums secured with adhesive and suction. Implant dentures use 4 to 6 posts per arch to securely fix your denture in place for a more comfortable and confident fit.
Comfort Dental Spa provides implant support for full and partial dentures. Depending on your case, we can even apply All-on-4, where a complete dental arch is supported on four well-placed implants, which speeds your healing time so you can get back to smiling with confidence.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Reconstruction of includes combining various procedures and techniques to rehabilitate the smile entirely. Dental school teaches the individual processes behind large-scale oral rehabilitation but applying them for ideal outcomes is a skill developed over time. Our dentists’ abilities to deliver complete mouth reconstruction has been developed over many years, and we seek out the latest and most advanced new technologies and methods. We understand how to rehabilitate a smile correctly to give you a uniform smile with optimum function.
When is Reconstruction Necessary?
Although this course of care can benefit just about anyone, it is particularly useful for patients who have suffered a substantial loss of dental structure, functionality, and aesthetics. The most common conditions that benefit from reconstruction include:
- Damage from trauma
- Extreme decay or gum disease
- Genetic abnormalities
- Chronic jaw, muscle, or headache pain
During a complete mouth reconstruction, multiple cosmetic and restorative dental treatments are implemented in a coordinated way. The process involves restorative care like crowns and veneers, periodontal treatment like scaling and root planing, and even oral surgery like bone and tissue grafting. Orthodontics and other cosmetic treatments may also be needed. We will make sure you understand every step of your treatment plan as well as the risks and benefits. The goal of this process is to make sure you understand the how and why so you can plan your schedule and your budget and be confident that you will get the results you want.
What Procedures Are Needed?
Our team of specialists will do a complete evaluation to determine what is needed for your specific case, and you will have many opportunities to ask questions. Frequently used treatments include:
- Professional deep cleaning and periodontal care to improve gum health.
- Crown lengthening to expose healthy dentition.
- Preparation of tooth structure for crowns, bridges, or veneers.
- Orthodontics to move teeth into optimal position.
- Orthognathic surgery to reposition jaw alignment.
- Implant placement to replace missing teeth or anchor a bridge.
- Bone or soft tissue grafting to stabilize proposed implants or other restorations.
- Temporary and permanent placement of restorations such as crowns, veneers, inlays, onlays, and bridges.
What is the Difference Between Full Mouth Reconstruction and a Smile Makeover?
In most cases, a smile makeover is more cosmetic in purpose, while reconstruction involves procedures you need to maintain proper oral health. However, many of the same techniques are used for both making a distinct line between the two a little hazy. The development of new materials can both repair a tooth, and make it look natural, and new implant technology promotes bone health and aesthetics. Many of the same equipment and techniques are used for both, and they require the use of clinically proven techniques, knowledge, training, and skill.
