Did you know that restorative dentistry can give your smile a second chance? It’s the perfect way to repair any damage from injury or disease and get back those pearly whites!

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry refers to dental procedures that focus on restoring the functionality, oral health, and appearance of your smile. Its primary goal is to correct any issues you may have with your teeth caused by trauma, tooth decay, or disease.

Restorative dentistry can involve more complex treatments like implant restorations, root canal therapy; dentures to replace missing teeth; and orthodontics to improve both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Dr. Carlos G. Our restorative dentist works closely with you to determine the best course of action for achieving the best results. We use advanced restorative techniques that provide maximum comfort and convenience while restoring the health of your smile.

Our Restorative Dental Procedures

If your natural teeth cannot be saved due to injury, disease, damage, or infection, restorative dentistry can be used to enhance your smile and restore full functionality.

All on 4

All on 4 Dental Implants is a lifelong solution for tooth loss that provides complete confidence for its strength, longevity, and appearance.

Dental Implants

This long-lasting tooth loss solution offers worry-free stability for the future. Undoubtedly, it is one of the top alternatives to natural teeth.

Composite Fillings

Fillings are used to restore cavities and other small areas of damage in the teeth. They’re made from special materials that bond directly to the tooth, making them strong and durable.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are protective caps that are placed over the existing tooth structure to prevent additional damage. They are often utilized to enhance the appearance of a damaged tooth by altering its position, shape, or color.


It is a convenient method for repairing teeth to fill cavities or replace missing parts of teeth caused by fractures or damage. We utilize porcelain or zirconia fillings rather than traditional bonding composites or metallic fillings.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are a common choice for tooth replacement due to their speed and practicality. They consist of two crowns attached to the natural teeth and are particularly useful in areas with multiple missing teeth.

Removable Dentures

Removable dentures are dental restorations created to replace multiple missing teeth. Patients can opt for partial dentures to replace a few missing teeth or full dentures to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.

What does restorative dentistry treatments include?

Restorative Dental procedures cover a wide range of treatments to recover the shape, function, and aesthetics of your smile.

From simple restorative dental treatments like fillings and crowns to more complex restorations such as veneers, inlays, and onlays. Restorative dentistry is used to repair damage to your teeth due to injury or disease.

We also offer tooth replacement options such as bridges, dental implants, and dentures, so you can regain full oral function and appearance. Dr. Carlos is our restorative dentist in Westchester NY.

What dental procedures are considered basic restorative?

What is the difference between basic and major restorative dental?

Basic restorative dentistry is aimed at restoring teeth to a functional and aesthetic state. This includes filling cavities, applying crowns, fixing chips or cracks in the teeth, replacing missing teeth with bridge restorations, and stabilizing weak teeth.

Major restorative dentistry focuses on larger restorative procedures such as full mouth reconstructions and implant placements. These restorations can be more complex and require extensive treatments to restore the smile back to its optimal health.

Is restorative dentistry the same as cosmetic dentistry?

Restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry are different in that restorative treatments focus on restoring damaged teeth or replacing missing teeth, while cosmetic treatments are aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth. While restorations can improve the overall aesthetics of a smile, they have a more functional purpose than just making teeth look better.

What is The Recovery Time of Restorative Dentistry?

The recovery time for restorative dentistry is almost none, and it depends on the type of treatment being performed. Minor restorative treatments such as fillings, veneers, dental crown and bridges, and inlays/onlays usually require a few hours for the numbing effect to wear off, and after that, it is just a matter of following the instructions to feel almost like nothing has happened. Restorative work will not provoke swelling or discomfort like surgical procedures do.

Some restorative procedures such as dental implant, and dentures can take several hours and sometimes days before they feel fully healed or adapted. So, during this time, it’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions exactly so that everything heals properly, and the restoration looks and feels its best.

From the very comfortable waiting room, to the extremely pleasant ladies that check you in my first impression of my new dentist was beyond expectations. The hygienist had a very pleasant disposition as did her assistant. Meeting Dr. Carlos, that’s how personal the office is, greeted me as though we’ve known each other for years. The staff creates a casual environment that makes me feel good. I’m sincerely grateful that we chose Buchanan Dental Arts to care for our dental needs.

It took me a month of frustrating experiences trying to find a dentist for a simple filling repair, before I found Buchanan Dental Arts. They were kind, courteous, and got me in for an appointment a couple days later. I really appreciated that they didn’t turn this into 2 to 3 visits of unneeded appointments and procedures. They looked at the tooth, assessed it, and filled it. What’s more is I felt that I was in good hands and trusted their expertise. I’m so glad I found Dr. Carlos Garzon. I can’t imagine going anywhere else.
