Restorative Dentistry in
Glastonbury, CT

What is restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry includes a wide variety of dental treatments and procedures that are meant to help patients restore their dental health and regain confidence in their smiles. Restorative treatment can help patients who have experienced tooth decay, gum disease, or oral trauma. The scope of restorative care can range from simple treatments like dental fillings to more complex procedures like replacing missing teeth with dental implants, dentures, or a bridge.

What to expect at your initial restorative appointment

Comprehensive Exam

Oral health exams are an integral aspect of every appointment. A comprehensive oral examination, sometimes referred to as a “full mouth exam,” covers the entire mouth, gives us an opportunity to screen you for oral cancer, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other issues that may affect your oral health.

Personal Treatment Plan

After your exam is complete, you and Dr. Sinha will discuss your oral health, to develop a personal treatment plan tailored to your unique dental needs. Treatment plans are a detailed outline of your recommended care, and typically include a timeline for each procedure, as well as information about what you can expect from each service.

Sedation Solutions

We’re happy to offer sedation options to keep you feeling comfortable and safe during your visit. Sedation is especially helpful for more complex restorative procedures, as well as for patients who experience dental anxiety or have trouble sitting still. We’ll discuss sedation options while making your treatment plan.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are the best option for restoring decayed teeth. If you have a cavity in Bristol, Dr. Sinha can remove the decayed material and replace it with a natural, tooth-colored material. With a tooth-colored filling from PS Dental, you can restore your smile, eliminate any pain and sensitivity, and prevent further decay and infection.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but they are made out of durable porcelain and must be built at our partner dental lab. They're a good choice for tooth damage and decay that’s too severe for a filling, but may not be extensive enough to require a dental crown. Inlays and onlays look and feel natural and are highly durable.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover up and protect your entire tooth structure, so they are a great choice for severely damaged teeth. We offer both traditional lab-made porcelain crowns, as well as same-day CEREC crowns. With same-day crowns in Bristol, you can treat your damaged tooth in just a single 1-2 hour appointment at PS Dental!

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges use two crowns that attach to healthy teeth on either side of a gap in your smile. Between these crowns, one or more false teeth (pontics) are suspended. This restores the gap in your smile, allowing you to eat and speak normally, and smile proudly once again!

Root Canal Therapy

If you have an infected tooth, root canal therapy in Bristol is the best way to eliminate the infection, get rid of pain, and preserve your tooth. And the sooner you get a root canal, the better your outcome will be. If your tooth hurts and you’re not sure why, get in touch with PS Dental and schedule a consultation with Dr. Sinha right away.

Full And Partial Dentures

Whether you’ve lost just a few teeth or a full mouth of teeth, Dr. Sinha is here to help. We can build a set of comfortable, natural-looking, and durable full or partial dentures. Full dentures fit directly over your gums, and are used to restore the upper, lower, or both rows of teeth after extensive tooth loss or damage. Partial dentures, on the other hand, can be used to restore just a few teeth. They snap onto your remaining healthy teeth, which hold them in place firmly.

Oral Surgery

We know that oral surgery can be intimidating. Whether you need a tooth extraction, bone graft, tori removal, or any other surgery in Bristol, Dr. Sinha and our team have you covered. With our gentle treatments, sedation options, and a patient-first approach to dentistry, we make it easy to get the oral surgery you need to address complex oral health issues in Bristol.

Any oral health condition or injury that requires immediate attention and cannot be treated at home is considered a dental emergency. Conditions like toothaches that don’t stop, continued oral pain or discomfort, chipped or broken teeth, missing or lost dental work, and bleeding gums fall into this category. If you’re unsure if what you’re experiencing qualifies as a dental emergency, just know that it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Does my insurance cover restorative dentistry?

arrow icon

Many insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of necessary restorative procedures, but the extent of your coverage can vary, depending on your unique policy. As a common example, your insurance may cover the cost of simple fillings or root canals, but may not provide full coverage for dental implants. To gain a full understanding of your own coverage, we recommend reaching out to your insurance provider for details. Also, you can always get in touch with our knowledgeable and friendly team, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you maximize your benefits at our Glastonbury practice.
