Regain your confidence and quality of life with restorative dentistry

The dental office of Patrick Healy, DDS is a full-service family practice, including restorative dentistry. Having a healthy and beautiful smile is important so we provide a wide range of options to repair broken or cracked teeth, damaged or diseased teeth, and much more.

Whether you need to repair or replace a bridge or you want to discuss other permanent options, like dental implants, Patrick Healy and his dedicated dental team are here to help.

Like many dental treatment options, restorative dentistry requires assessment, discussion, and consideration of your current dental health. For instance, if you’re considering dental implants, bone and gum health is assessed first to determine suitability for the treatment.

We’ll work with you to ensure you have all of the information you need to make an informed decision about your dental health and treatment options offered by Patrick Healy, DDS.

Our Restorative Dentistry Services

Restorative dentistry can dramatically improve the look and function of your teeth, gums, and/or mouth. Depending on your situation, you may prefer a permanent solution or a temporary solution. Regardless of the treatment option(s) you choose, Dr. Healy will ensure the job is done right.

Below are some of the restorative dental services we offer:

Dental Bridges

Bridges have been used to replace missing teeth for a long time. While dental implants are often used in lieu of them these days, you may prefer this option after talking with our team. Dental bridges attach to the teeth on either side of the gap and a crown is attached to the bridge to complete the full set of teeth.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used for a number of reasons, most commonly to “cap” a tooth after a root canal has been completed. They can also be used if a tooth has been damaged but the root is healthy or to replace existing, damaged crowns or old caps. Dental crowns are very strong and semi-permanent. They offer an excellent solution for damaged, yet healthy teeth.

Fillings and Bonding

Used to correct and improve the look and function of your teeth, fillings, and bonding ensure that your oral health stays intact and does not allow further damage to your teeth and surrounding gums. Children often require fillings as they are growing up, but adults may need them as well. What’s more, many adults are seeking replacements for old amalgam. New filling and bonding material is tooth-colored and hardly visible on the tooth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular solution for replacing missing or broken teeth. It’s popular because the procedure is permanent and ensures that you don’t have any bone loss in your jaw. Once placed, your implants will complete the look, feel, and function of your teeth for many years to come.

Assessment, Financial, and Insurance Options

When you work with our dental team at the office of Patrick Healy, DDS, you can rest assured that your oral health will be our top priority. We work hard to ensure your smile is bright, white, and healthy.

There is no one-size-fits-all dental treatment here. We’ll provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your oral care, especially when it comes to restoring your teeth and smile.

We offer a variety of payment options to make repairing or replacing your teeth easy and simple. We also accept insurance and will promptly and accurately submit insurance forms for you.
