Restorative Dentistry Services

About Restorative Dentistry

Shifa Dental offers restorative dentistry in Plano, combining several different dental care solutions to reduce your oral health problems as well as to bring your mouth back to its original state. Restorative dentistry includes procedures which help preserve the natural condition of your mouth. At Shifa Dental, we offer various dental services when it comes to restorative dentistry, such as crowns, implants, bridges, dental fillings, dentures, and root canal therapy. Depending on your specific issue, you may need one or more of the following restorative dentistry procedures.

Common Restorative Dentistry Procedures

Crowns: A crown may be required to cover a tooth that already has a dental filling, to join a bridge, to restore a broken tooth, or to protect a tooth from breaking. Crowns work as a cap to increase the strength, improve the appearance, and/or to provide a normal size and shape to one’s tooth.
Implants: Missing teeth can be embarrassing for many people. Today, people prefer to improve their appearance, mitigate their embarrassment, and correct missing teeth by getting a dental implant. This is a procedure in which root of the tooth is replaced by a material. Implants provide a strong base for a permanent tooth or a removable one.
Bridges: Dentists use bridges when a patient is missing one or more teeth. These act as a medium to bridge the gap left between teeth due to missing teeth. Bridges help maintain your oral health by removing the space created by missing teeth, which could otherwise become a source of several issues.
Fillings: In cases where a part of a tooth has decayed, your Plano dentist will clear out the affected part; then fill this area with a substance. This substance may be gold, silver, glass or any other material. This process is known as filling.
Dentures: Dentures are an alternative for natural teeth and are removable. Generally, dentures are a great option for patients who have lost all or almost all of their teeth. Dentures may be partial or a full set; in either of the two cases, patients should still take care of their dentures with proper oral hygiene just like they would with their natural teeth.
Root Canal Therapy: If a tooth is severely infected or decayed, your Plano dentist may advise root canal therapy. During a root canal, the insides of your tooth are cleaned to remove the infectious bacteria.



1Are dental implants painful?

Dental implant surgery is performed under local anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Some discomfort and swelling may occur post-surgery, but it can be managed with pain medication.

2How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and regular dental visits, dental implants can last a lifetime.

3Can dental implants be covered by insurance?

Coverage for dental implants varies depending on your insurance provider and policy. Our team at Shifa Dental will work closely with you to explore your insurance options.

4Is the dental Implant procedure painful?

The process of dental implants has progressed so quickly since its inception that it is now a very predictable and painless treatment. The dental implant operation is done with such care and precision that you will feel as little pain as possible. You can expect minimal swelling and nearly no blood if you follow the instructions carefully.

5Will my Implant match my existing natural teeth?

Yes! Your dental implant may be topped with a crown, bridge, or implant-supported dentures, all of which will be custom-made to ensure your comfort. That means your custom-made teeth will be shaped and colored to match the form and color of your natural teeth and bite. Patients frequently have difficulty distinguishing between their natural teeth and their attractive new dental implants.

6How often will I need to have a checkup after a dental Implant?

How carefully you care for your implants will determine how successful they are. They, like your natural teeth, need to be professionally cleaned and checked on a regular basis. We normally recommend a check-up every 6 months, but based on your unique needs, we may prescribe check-ups more or less frequently.

7Do dental implants have to be replaced periodically ?
Implants do not need to be replaced on a regular basis. Once you have a dental implant, it is intended to be with you for a longer period of time.
8Is it better to get denture or Implant?

Dentures and implants are not interchangeable, and they serve very different purposes. Dentures sit on top of your gums and press against the bone tissue beneath. Because implants are secured well below the gum line, they help to strengthen your bite. Both tooth replacement options have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. To determine which treatment is best for you, we urge that you consult our expert dentist.

9When can I return to work after dental implant surgery ?
You can usually go back to work the next day after your implant procedure. We can offer you a far more accurate time estimate and let you know ahead of time if you should clear your schedule for longer once we know exactly what your treatment will entail.

    As always, I had the best doctor and superb services at Shifa Dental. I never felt the need to go to any other dentist after coming to this place a couple of years ago. Their attention to details is masterful and coupled with the care for their patients they show is truly wonderful. A big thank to all the people at Shifa Dental.

    It was my first time here and it was a great experience. I have sensitive teeth so they would check in to make sure the cleaning was feeling okay. The staff was very personable and I did not have to wait long. I would highly recommend!
