Restorative dentistry is the whole area of dentistry that deals with fixing teeth. This includes simple fillings, crowns, inlays, root canals and implants if necessary. The best strategy is to avoid all of this as much as possible by employing good personal hygiene skills and diet. If restorations are required; we try to use the simplest procedures that are likely to be successful. As long as high quality materials are coupled with good workmanship; good results can be achieved with simple procedures. If more complex procedures are required; there is still no substitute for high quality materials and good workmanship.
