Avalon Park Restorative Dentistry

When you need to have your mouth restored to a healthy and functional state, restorative dentistry is the way to go. Find out how we can help you specifically by coming in to see us!


There are many myths that exist about root canals, but here at Elite Dentistry we know how to help save your tooth with root canal therapy. Not only can a root canal save your tooth, it can also save you from losing a tooth or getting sick! If you hesitate about a toothache and don’t know where to turn, come in and see us. The modern root canal is a routine and virtually painless procedure used to remove the infection or problem from your tooth and get you back to your life in no time!


Having a tooth extracted is often the last resort, as it is important that you keep your teeth for as long as possible. However, specific circumstances arise that require a tooth to come out, such as significant tooth decay or incoming wisdom teeth. If you need to have a tooth pulled, we can help inform you and give you the options to feel comfortable and in control of the process. To relax throughout the appointment, we can offer nitrous oxide sedation dentistry, and as always, we will use care to numb the area prior to the procedure.

Cracked Tooth Restoration

If you cracked a tooth, it can be painful to chew, speak or even clean your teeth. To prevent tooth decay and bacteria from entering a cracked tooth, come in to see your family dentist in Avalon Park where we can use dental bonding or a dental crown to restore the health of your tooth. If the tooth is cracked completely in half, we may recommend removing the tooth and restoring the smile with a replacement tooth or dental implant. Find out what options you have to restore your smile and health with restorative dental care at Elite Dentistry.


A dental implant restoration involves placing a custom dental crown, or replacement tooth, onto a dental implant. Our staff is experienced and trained in helping to restore the crown atop the implant post. We will have you come in to determine the ideal type and shape of dental crown before creating and placing the crown. This will restore your chewing and speaking ability, and allow your mouth to return to a healthy and natural appearance.


  • What are the most common types of dental restorations?

    Dental restorations are a common practice in restorative dentistry. They are used to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure, which can be caused by caries or external trauma. There are several types of dental restorations, but the most common ones are dental fillings, crowns, bridges, and implants.

    • Dental fillings are used for repairing minor fractures and decay in the teeth. They can be made from a variety of materials, including composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), amalgam, gold, or porcelain.
    • Dental crowns, on the other hand, are used when a tooth is heavily decayed or damaged. The crown covers the entire tooth, protecting it from further damage and restoring its appearance.
    • Dental bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of two or more crowns that anchor an artificial tooth in place.

    Dental implants are the most comprehensive form of dental restoration. They replace the entire tooth, including the root, offering a permanent solution for missing teeth.

  • Can a decayed tooth be restored?

    Yes, a decayed tooth can often be restored, depending on the extent of the decay. In the early stages of decay, a simple filling can be used to restore the tooth. If the decay has reached the pulp (the innermost part of the tooth), a root canal may be necessary. 

    In extreme cases where the tooth cannot be saved, it may need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant or bridge. It’s important to note that early detection and treatment are key in preventing extensive damage and the need for more complex procedures.

  • When Do You Need a Root Canal?

    A root canal is needed when the pulp of the tooth, which contains nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected or damaged. This can be due to severe decay, repeated dental procedures on the same tooth, a crack or chip in the tooth, or trauma. Symptoms that may indicate the need for a root canal include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums, or a persistent pimple on the gums. However, sometimes there are no symptoms, which is why regular dental check-ups are essential.

  • How Do Dental Implants Work?

    Dental implants are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. They are artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth. Dental implants offer the look, feel and function of natural teeth and are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth.
