    Main Types of Restorative Dentistry Services

    Depending on the type of tooth damage, our dentist may recommend one of the following dental services:


    Fillings are used to treat dental cavities. The decayed tooth tissue is removed, and the teeth are cleaned. Depending on the extent of tooth damage and personal preferences, dental cavities may be filled with materials such as gold, porcelain, silver, or composite.  


    Dental bridges may be a perfect option if you are looking for a permanent solution for missing tooth/teeth. Bridges are fixed between existing teeth and help restore your teeth’ functionality while improving your smile.


    Dental crowns are caps used to restore the shape and strength of your teeth. Your dentist will place the crown over a damaged tooth to offer an additional layer that protects against further damage.

    What Restorative Dentistry Services Are Offered At Honey Bee Pediatric Dental?

    Our board-certified dentists offer a range of pediatric restorative dental services, such as:

    Tooth-Colored Fillings

    These fillings offer a long-lasting solution for dental cavities. They can also be used on cracked or chipped teeth to help restore your child’s natural smile. These fillings can be used on both front and back teeth for a conservative, esthetic result.  

    Stainless Steel Crowns

    If your child’s teeth are severely damaged, your dentist may recommend stainless steel crowns. Studies have shown that stainless steel crowns are the best dental treatment option for children with a high risk of caries. In addition to being durable, they are also less expensive and more reliable than their esthetic counterpart, the Zirconia crown. 

    Tooth-Colored Zirconia Crowns

    Zirconia crowns are a full coverage esthetic option for restoring more severely decayed teeth. They are an excellent treatment option for those wanting a natural appearance for their child’s dental restoration.

    Stainless Steel Crowns With White Facings

    These resin-veneered crowns offer a long-lasting solution to damaged teeth. The white facings provide a more natural appearance as they resemble natural teeth. However, the facings require extra care as they may chip off, exposing the color of the stainless steel.   

    Pupal Therapy Procedures

    Pupal therapy procedures treat nerve involvement in damaged teeth- whether primary or permanent. Pulpotomy and pulpectomy are the most common therapy procedures for children. While a pulpotomy involves treating part of the nerve to help prevent the infection from spreading, a pulpectomy consists of removing the entire nerve of the damaged tooth/teeth.


    For severely damaged or decayed teeth, extraction may be necessary. This involves the complete removal of the teeth to prevent the spread of bacterial infection to surrounding teeth.
