While it’s true there are fewer cases of tooth decay, thanks to the use of fluorides and improved patient awareness, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and other problems. In these situations, teeth need to be nursed back to health. At Westdale Dental in Cedar Rapids, we provide a variety of options to restore teeth to their normal shape, appearance, and function.
If a need arises and you require a restorative dentistry treatment, you’ll find comfort in knowing we explain all available options and recommend what we believe to be the best treatment for your condition.
Reasons for restorative dentistry:
- Repair damaged and decayed teeth

Crowns or caps are used to restore broken or fractured teeth. It usually takes two appointments to ensure the crown is the right shape and fit.
A more permanent solution to a missing tooth is implants. Artificial roots are placed within the jawbone, providing a long-lasting solution.
A dental bridge is the most popular solution for replacing missing teeth. We will assess your needs and determine the best option for you.
