Restorations Q & A

What are dental restorations?

Dental restorations are dental treatments that repair or replace teeth to improve their function, structure, and appearance – and prevent future damage. The Westside Dentistry team offers a wide array of dental restorations to meet your personalized needs, lifestyle, and desired outcome.

What are the benefits of dental restorations?

Dental restorations at Westside Dentistry can fix teeth that are:

  • Decaying
  • Loose
  • Missing
  • Weak
  • Discolored
  • Misshapen
  • Too small
  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Worn down

To find out which type of dental restoration is right for you, the Westside Dentistry team reviews your dental history, discusses your symptoms, examines your teeth and gums, and takes X-rays. They personalize your treatment to give you the best outcome.

Which dental restorations are available?

Some of the many dental restoration procedures available at Westside Dentistry include:


Filling are common dental restorations made of tooth-colored materials that can repair small cavities. Your dentist might recommend a filling for mild tooth decay, cracks, or other minor tooth damage.


Crowns are like caps that fit over the surface of your natural teeth. Your dentist first removes tooth decay or repairs your tooth, and places a crown over the top to restore its function and appearance.


Bridges help fill in gaps left by missing permanent teeth. They often consist of two crowns with an artificial tooth in between. Bridges can also attach to dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth.


Veneers are thin shells that look and function like your natural teeth. They fit over the front portion of your teeth to improve their shape, color, texture, and overall appearance.


Dental implants replace missing permanent teeth. They consist of artificial titanium tooth roots attached to crowns. Your dentist surgically places dental implants into your jawbone to secure the new teeth in place.


Like implants, dentures also replace missing teeth. They can replace upper, lower, or a small section of missing teeth. Dentures either rest on the top of your gums or attach to dental implants.

The team at Westside Dentistry offers Solea® all-tissue laser dentistry for precise, reliable, anesthesia-free dental restorations to relieve anxiety and produce the best outcome.
