We can solve anything from minor problems like small cavities to big complications such as multiple teeth loss. However, we always encourage our patients to visit the office at least every six months to catch dental issues on time and solve them with simpler and equally effective procedures.

Restorative Dentistry Benefits

Why invest in restorative dentistry?

Improve Functionality

When you have your teeth restored, you also recover the functionality of the teeth - this means that you can chew and speak like you used to. Dentists can reproduce the exact anatomy that the damaged teeth used to have.

Avoid Tooth Pain

No one likes having a toothache, and when cavities are left untreated, it can result in more pain and money down the road. If the dentist spots them before it's too late, they could restore them with a simple filling (or a crown if the damage is too extensive) and save you from acute tooth pain.

Restorative dentistry is dedicated to restoring both the beauty and function of your smile. Each patient’s situation is unique, necessitating various procedures. Once our dentist has thoroughly examined your teeth and established a diagnosis, we will discuss your treatment options with you. While some patients may only require a simple filling, more complex cases will be met with a detailed explanation of the available alternatives. Together, we will work to identify the option that best suits your needs.

At Sun Dental Bellevue, we understand how anxious some patients feel about dental treatments. We take special measures, including applying numbing gel before administering injections. Our skilled and compassionate professionals are here to ensure that your appointment is as pain-free and comfortable as possible, regardless of your level of anxiety.

Your teeth deserve a second chance. Schedule an appointment with our highly skilled dentist in Bellevue, WA, and explore how we can rejuvenate your smile.

Restorative Dentistry FAQs

The answers to the most commonly asked questions.
  • Do I need a crown or a filling?
    That depends on how much structure the affected tooth has lost. We try to preserve as much dental tissue as possible, so a filling will always be our first choice. But when the damage is too extensive, or if the tooth has been root-filled, Dr. Jun Sun will place a dental crown.
  • Should I have my tooth extracted instead of trying to save it?
    Unless strictly needed, no dentist would advise a patient to have a tooth extracted when there is still a chance to save it. Before doing any extraction, our dentist will first evaluate if there are any other viable options, like root canal treatments or fillings. Dentists can restore severely damaged teeth using materials and techniques that no one could have dreamed of only a few decades ago.
  • How can I replace a missing tooth?
    There are multiple options available to patients, but dental implants are the top tooth replacement solution recommended by dentists. Benefits of dental implants include an improved appearance, better speech (dental implants are permanently adhered to the jawbone and won’t slip like dentures or cause slurred speech), regular chewing and eating capability (your new teeth will function like natural teeth, and you can eat the foods you love). However, we also offer alternatives that might suit reduced budgets, like partial dentures or dental bridges.
  • How long do crowns and bridges last?
    Dental crowns and bridges can last for 10 years or more. With good oral hygiene, you can extend the life of your dental work.
    Even with tooth replacements, it’s important to maintain regular dentist appointments to ensure your oral health and check the integrity of your dental work.
  • Can I get my teeth removed and denture on the same day?
    Yes, it is possible to have teeth removed and dentures delivered on the same day.
    Same-day dentures let you replace your teeth in one day after an extraction. Typically, tooth extraction and dentures take time to complete because your gums should heal before wearing dentures.
    By waiting for your gums to heal, we can create a better-fitting denture that lets you eat and speak more naturally.
  • What are the best dentures to get?
    Implant-supported dentures are the best type of dentures because they stay in place and offer support, just like your natural teeth. The metal post of an implant fuses directly with the jawbone, so there’s no risk of dentures falling out or an awkward fit.
    Each patient is different, so the best type of denture for you depends on your goals, budget, and if you’re a candidate for implant surgery.
