Restorative dentistry is the process of restoring broken down teeth or removing decay from a tooth and restoring it with a filling, or eliminating an infection within the gums and then restoring that area with a more hygienic prosthesis.
Hey, guys. Today we have the 10 most frequently asked dental questions and I’m gonna do my best to answer them all for you.
It sounds to me as if something else is going on there. I would assess it and maybe it’s a matter of just placing fillings, but changing the preparation of the hole, basically, the cavity prep. You have to prepare the cavity in a certain way, depending on the position on the tooth and depending on what tooth it is, to maximize the longevity of that filling.
The tooth is three dimensional. When decay extends through the top of the tooth and all the way into an area that’s either inaccessible, or it’s just an area where it’s going to make the tooth so fragile where it just doesn’t make sense to restore it, in those instances the tooth would need to be extracted versus placing a filling.

A thorough breakdown of your benefits allows us to give you the most accurate coverage estimate possible. Based on this information we can provide you with a plan that maximizes your benefits and minimizes your out of pocket expense.

While a majority of insurance plans will cover a large percentage of preventative and restorative care, they rarely cover cosmetic procedures. For any procedures not covered or beyond your plans maximum benefit, we provide several payment options including cash, check, money order, and major credit cards. We also offer flexible, no interest monthly installment plans through care credit and lending club that help you get the treatment you need without a financial burden.
We believe that there are three main considerations that you should be aware of when choosing a dentist.
Does the dentist care deeply about you and your dental health?
Is the dentist skilled enough to consistently provide the highest quality of dental care?
Does the dentist have the team and the tools available to provide you with the highest quality of care?
At JJ Dental our entire team is proud to be able to answer yes to each of these critical questions.
