Restorative Dentistry from Dr. Derek Conover

Dr. Conover focuses on reconstructive dental care, which is a part of restorative dentistry. He provides full mouth restorations to renew the full function and look of the teeth, gums, and jaw. When Dr. Conover provides these services, he not only focuses on the look of the end result. He also focuses on the bite and jaw structure. This approach to care encompasses all parts of everyday function.

Dr. Conover received valuable in-person dental training from dentists, including Frank Spear, the founder and director of Spear Education. Spear Education is known for the Spear Study Club, which provides continuing education for dentists.

What is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative dentistry in our Philadelphia, PA office focuses on repairing and replacing teeth. Our restorative treatments can help maintain your dental health. They play an essential role in your long-term dental health and wellness. Restorative treatment and procedures can keep the teeth and gums healthy and stable.

From dental crowns to implants, our restorative dental services can restore a healthy, beautiful, and functional smile.

Do you have missing teeth?

Dr. Conover places all types of dental implants. He can work with you to replace a single lost tooth or a complete set of lost teeth with a new, permanent, and secure smile.

We also offer traditional types of dental bridges and dentures that blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Our office ensures tooth replacements look and feel natural.

Are your teeth chipped or cracked?

If not repaired and restored appropriately, damaged teeth can become missing teeth over time. Dr. Conover offers a range of treatment options for damaged teeth, including tooth bonding, dental crowns, and other restorations.

Cracked teeth can sometimes indicate an underlying bite problem. Dr. Conover will evaluate all aspects of your dental health and the function of your bite before he recommends a restorative dental treatment plan.

Do you have advanced gum disease?

Healthy gums keep your teeth stable. If you develop a gum infection, your gums can pull away from your teeth. Left untreated, you can lose one or more teeth to gum disease.

Our office offers periodontal treatments for all stages of gum disease. We can remove infected or damaged tissue and help your gums heal.

Do you have an uncomfortable bite?

Restorative dental services can often address an uncomfortable or uneven bite. Bonding or tooth crowns may improve contact between the teeth and a better bite. An uneven bite can make eating uncomfortable. In some cases, it can lead to problems like TMJ disorders.

How We Diagnose and Treat Restorative Problems

Dr. Conover uses advanced digital technology to evaluate your needs, provide the right treatment, and deliver a predictable result. First, Dr. Conover will fully examine your smile at an in-office consultation. He will evaluate your bite and look for signs of infection or damage.

Dr. Conover will also take digital X-rays. This dental technology helps him get a full picture of the teeth, gums, and jaw.

Before he recommends a restorative treatment, Dr. Conover will consider your current medications, dental history, and medical conditions. He will ensure treatment aligns with your goals and budget.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If you need a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Conover will use multiple restorative treatments to renew your oral health. We understand that dental problems like gum disease, tooth damage, TMJ, and missing teeth can make patients feel self-conscious.

Dr. Conover can use a combination of restorative treatments. If you have an infection, Dr. Conover will recommend gum disease treatment first. Once you are healthy, our dentist will continue treatment to replace missing teeth or repair tooth damage.

We understand patients with multiple dental issues may not want to visit the dentist out of fear. Opus Dental Esthetics is a judgment-free dental office. If you avoid the dentist because of dental anxiety or fear of judgment, we’re here to help you. We want you to have healthy teeth and gums and a functional smile.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Because restorative dental care focuses on restoring the form and function of the teeth and gums, it offers these benefits:

More Comfortable Smile

An uneven bite caused by damaged and missing teeth can lead to bite issues. Infections like gum disease can also cause gum pain and sensitivity. When we treat these problems, we restore comfort to your teeth and gums.

Better Eating and Speaking

Missing and damaged teeth often make it hard to eat and speak comfortably. An unbalanced bite can put pressure on some teeth more than others when you eat. Gaps in your smile can also make it hard to pronounce certain words. After restorative treatment, you can benefit from better mouth function.

Improved Self-confidence

After you complete restorative dental care, you benefit from a full, healthy smile. Restorative care not only improves your dental health but also improves the look of your teeth and gums. Once you fill missing tooth gaps or cover worn teeth, you can feel more confident in your smile.

Natural-looking Results

We work with a lab to create natural-looking false teeth. Our office uses high-quality materials like porcelain to cover damaged teeth and replace missing teeth. We color-match restorations to the shape and shade of natural teeth.
