What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry restores health, function, and beauty to your teeth. While missing teeth, crooked teeth, and worn teeth cause cosmetic concerns, sometimes they indicate an underlying health and functional issue.

Dr. Marckese takes a comprehensive approach to your care and will seek to identify any undiagnosed dental problems that can compromise the integrity of your result. She will perform a thorough analysis to get an appropriate diagnosis. Then she will create a treatment plan to meet your needs and support your long term dental health.

Your restorative treatment plan can range from a simple dental filling for a cavity to dental implants for missing teeth. Many of our patients require several treatments to fully restore form, function, and their oral health.

Your dentist in Indianapolis will help you choose the treatment plan that is best for your specific situation. We will make sure it’s within your budget, complement your lifestyle, and meet your goals and needs.

The Importance of Restoring Your Smile

If you suffer from a missing or damaged tooth or TMD, it is crucial to seek treatment. Restorative dentistry can fix these issues and help you maintain your oral health. Doing this will also support your overall health. Correcting complex dental issues are vital for many reasons including:

  • Preserves the natural tooth and avoids an extraction
  • Restores teeth allowing them to function properly again
  • Provides pain relief, improving your quality of life
  • Restores teeth to prevent further damage to the tooth
  • Enhances the appearance of your teeth and smile
  • Supports your overall health by preventing oral infections which are often associated with systemic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes

Restorative Dentistry Procedures

We offer a range of restorative dentistry procedures in Indianapolis, IN to meet your needs and bring back your natural smile. Any of the below treatments may be included in your treatment plan to restore your oral health.

Dental Implants

There are many treatments for replacing missing teeth or repairing damaged or worn-down teeth. If you’re missing a tooth or multiple teeth, Dr. Marckese will recommend dental implants. Dental implants are undoubtedly the next best option to your natural teeth.

The benefits of dental implants, when compared to the other options, are endless. You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Marckese to learn more about dental implants and see if they are the right option for you. To learn more about advantages of dental implants, see Dental Implants.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

You may know about dental crowns from root canal treatment. Modern crowns are strong and look just like real teeth. However, your dentist can also use them for cosmetic purposes to repair cracked, chipped, or stained teeth.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap with one or more artificial teeth. Your dentist will make a small “abutment” to support the artificial tooth or teeth on either side of the gap. Then she will screw the abutments onto adjacent natural teeth. The fake tooth or teeth will sit over the abutments. Learn more about the dental crowns and bridges procedures, see Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges.

Dentures and Partial Dentures

A Complete Denture replaces all the natural teeth in the mouth, while partial dentures only replace some of them. Your dentist can attach partial dentures to existing teeth with metal clasps or dental implants. Complete Dentures usually have artificial teeth that a dentist attaches to them and snap into place over your gums. To learn more about the types of dentures we offer, see Dentures and Partials.

TMJ Therapy

TMJ treatment is a procedure that corrects the jaw joint to alleviate jaw pain and other issues. Dental trauma, arthritis, or muscle spasms are just some of the factors that can cause a TMJ disorder.

Dr. Marckese uses in-office 3-D printing technology to create a custom occlusal guard, or nightguard, that will prevent teeth grinding and support a more natural bite. Patients benefit from the convenience of a fully customized appliance made in a timely manner- and at less cost!

The main goal of TMJ treatment is to relieve pain and prevent future problems with the joints. Your dentist can achieve this through a few different methods: non-surgical treatments, surgical treatments with dental implants or without them, and dental appliances. To learn more the symptoms of TMD, see TMJ Therapy.​

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays help fix teeth with damage or decay without needing a full crown. They preserve more of your natural tooth, making it stronger and well-protected. Inlays and onlays provide longer-lasting results than standard fillings, effectively reinforcing both the inside and outside of the tooth. They preserve tooth function and extend its lifespan, preventing further deterioration and decay. To learn more about the difference between an inlay and an onlay, see Inlays and Onlays.


Our Patients Say It Best

I broke my crown off on the way to the gym, and I was seen within 15 mins upon entering. Dr. Amy and her staff took care of me…just like always, but this being an emergency went above and beyond! Great service as always! Thank you!
