Cincinnati Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry refers to the dental procedures and treatments that are designed to repair any tooth that has been damaged. Whether you have a small cavity, a cracked tooth, or a tooth infection, restorative treatments like fillings, dental crowns, and root canal therapy can treat oral health issues and minimize discomfort.
Visiting a dentist for restorative dentistry as soon as you recognize a dental health issue is the best way to ensure the best possible outcome for your dental health. If left untreated, many oral health issues will become more severe and eventually lead to tooth loss.

The Benefits Of Restorative Dentistry
- Restore the functionality of your teeth – After your treatment, you will be able to chew, eat, and speak normally, without any pain or other issues.
- Restore the appearance of your smile – Dr. Shertok doesn’t just focus on functionality. He can use porcelain crowns, composite fillings, and other treatments to improve and restore your bright, white smile, even after it has been damaged.
- Prevent further oral health issues – Restorative treatments such as composite fillings and dental crowns will prevent the development of other problems, such an infected or abscessed tooth.
Our Restorative Dentistry Procedures
We offer comprehensive restorative dentistry, including the following procedures:
- Dental fillings – Fillings are used to restore teeth affected by tooth decay and protect them from further damage and deterioration.
- Dental crowns – Crowns are used to protect damaged and decayed teeth by “capping” the entire tooth, covering it up with a natural-looking “false tooth”.
- Dental bridges – Dental bridges are attached to 2 healthy teeth using crowns and can replace missing teeth by creating a “bridge” of false teeth in the gaps where your missing teeth used to be.
- Dental implants – Implants use a two-part restoration that mimics the natural root and the crown of a missing tooth. The implant is permanently placed in your jawbone, and they can last a lifetime with proper care.
- Root canals – A root canal may be required if your tooth has been damaged and the interior pulp has become infected. Root canals are used to remove the infected material and destroy the infection. Then, the tooth is filled and capped with a crown, protecting it from further damage.
- Dentures – We offer both full arch and partial dentures at Shertok Smiles. Dentures are an affordable way to restore your smile and a great option if you are on a budget.
