As you might have guessed, At Moss, our restorative dentistry is aimed at restoring teeth or parts of teeth that have been broken, damaged, or decayed. We have a variety of options for you, from simple tooth-colored fillings to implant-retained dentures, all designed to meet your current restorative dental needs and budget. To get your health back on track, you will need to schedule a consultation with our team so that we can put together an action plan.

Until then, here are some restorative solutions to be thinking about:

Dental Implants

Suffering tooth loss as an adult will be painful, traumatic, and embarrassing. It will adversely impact your appearance as well as your health. But we can help you reclaim your life with a dental implant. Our dental implants are used to take the place of tooth roots to anchor an individual replacement tooth or several teeth. We usually complete the tooth restoration using crowns. Implants are a very versatile tool in restorative dentistry. In addition to replacing teeth individually, they can be used to anchor fixed bridges or implant-retained dentures. This solution will have you feeling and looking like your old self soon enough.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Cavities can take hold in spite of your best hygiene habits at home. They aren’t good for your oral health, but if they are caught early, cavities won’t be too big of a deal in the long run. After removing decay and cleaning your tooth, we place a filling in the cavity to protect your tooth from further decay and infection. We use composite resin fillings that are metal free and match the color closely with your other teeth.

Dental Crowns

To cover and protect a badly damaged tooth, or a tooth that has undergone a root canal, a crown is placed over the existing tooth. Crowns are made to look just like natural teeth. A crown completely covers the visible part of the tooth at and above the gum line. Crowns are also used to restore implants and are used in bridges.

Dental Bridges

These are appropriately named dental devices. To literally “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth, bridges are employed. In a traditional bridge, crowns are made to cover the teeth (or implants) on either side of the missing tooth. Those support teeth are called abutment teeth. The middle tooth, called a pontic, is the replacement for the missing tooth. We will make this procedure as pleasant as possible for you.


For good or for ill, everyone has heard of dentures, right? This is an age-old restorative technique. To replace a full upper or lower arch of teeth, removable dentures are the traditional choice. Dentures are artificial teeth set in molded plastic to fit over your gums. They are kept in place with adhesive. We also offer implant-retained dentures as a more permanent and secure alternative to removable dentures.
