These treatments can help restore the look and function of your teeth, as well as your bite. At our practice, Ryan Rush DDS PLLC in Fort Collins, CO 80526, we provide excellent restorative dentistry treatments and strive to boost your oral health.

We might recommend a restorative procedure to reinstate your mouth to full function for any of the following:
- Missing teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Misaligned bite

- Tooth decay

After a complete evaluation of your mouth, which includes X-rays and a dental exam, Dr. Ryan Rush can help determine the proper restorative treatment for you.
What Are Some Standard Restorative Treatments?
We perform a wide range of restorative treatments at our office, such as:
Dental crowns are prosthetic caps that cover the outer portion of your tooth to restore its shape, size, or color. Crowns also protect weakened teeth against further damage by providing a durable shield.
A dental bridge fills the gap left by your missing tooth. They consist of two dental crowns with an artificial tooth held in the middle.
Dental fillings reinstate your tooth after removing a cavity. Fillings come in various materials, including metal and tooth-colored substances like composite resin.
Dental implants are unique metal posts surgically inserted into your jaw to replace tooth roots of your missing teeth. They hold your replacement teeth firmly in place and together function like your natural teeth.
Bonding procedures utilize composite resin to fix chips and cracks in your smile. It can also help repair significant gaps and restore the shape of your tooth.
Veneers are slim pieces of porcelain that can improve the shape, length, and color of your teeth. They are bonded to the teeth's front surface, and they look and feel natural.
A root canal is a restorative procedure that involves removing the decayed pulp from your tooth chamber to eliminate the infection.
Periodontal therapies like scaling and root planing remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums to treat gum disease.
Dentures are removable replacements for the teeth you lost. They can help replace all or just some of your missing teeth from the upper or lower arch of your mouth.
