Restorative dentistry is restoring the teeth back to form and function. Some people come in with missing teeth and we're able to offer implants as a solution. Some people come in with broken down teeth and we're able to offer crowns as an option. And a crown is essentially a cap that goes over the entire tooth that prevents the walls from breaking down so that they could have a long-term solution in their chewing capacity and their overall functioning of the tooth. Implants is one of the most successful things that we do here in the office. It's about a 98% success rate. It's very easy. It's painless. Again sometimes I can do an implant, and the time it would take me to do long filling. Patient comes in. They are numbed up. They are ready to go and I said I already placed the implant. and they say You got to be kidding. And so implants are one of the most successful things that we do, 98% success rate, 2 out of a hundred will fail and if it simply fails, we simply go back in there and put another one in, it's very successful.
Dental Implants Can Replace Missing Teeth
Letting missing teeth go unreplaced puts your oral health and overall health at risk. When a tooth is not replaced, the bone that once supported that tooth begins to deteriorate because there is no longer a tooth or root to keep the bone healthy. When bone deteriorates, your appearance can be affected because your jawbone will shrink. Deteriorating bone and gaps from missing teeth can also lead to other teeth becoming loose.
To healthily replace missing teeth, the best restorative dentistry option is a dental implant. An implant will replace the teeth as well as the roots of the teeth so the bone surrounding the tooth will remain intact. Not only does it help you maintain your oral health, but it also provides a look and function equal to that of natural teeth.

Dental Veneers For A Bright, New Smile
Dental veneers are ultra-thin porcelain coverings that are fixed to your teeth to repair minor damage and improve your appearance. If you have teeth that you are embarrassed by, veneers are a perfect solution to give you the smile that you’ve always dreamed about. Let our top-notch Rochester Hills, MI dentists at Hubbard & Leath Dental help you improve the damaged teeth that you’re embarrassed to show by fitting you with veneers!
Tooth-Colored Fillings, Inlays, & Onlays
When you have a cavity, your tooth must be repaired with a filling. At Hubbard & Leath Dental, we want to make sure that your filling goes unseen to the people that you interact with on a daily basis by offering you tooth-colored fillings. Nobody will ever know that you had a cavity, and your teeth will remain healthy!
Once a filling gets old and needs to be replaced because of decay or other damage, your dentist may replace them with either inlays or onlays. Inlays fit inside of the surrounding ridges of a tooth and provide a new, sturdy restoration. Onlays are a more extensive restoration that replaces the filling and extends onto the ridges of the tooth. No matter which restorative dentistry option you need, your trusted Rochester Hills, MI dentists at Hubbard & Leath Dental has you covered!
Get Stronger Teeth With Porcelain Crowns & Fixed Bridges
A porcelain crown is essentially a cover for a damaged tooth that instantly improves the strength of the tooth. Your ability to eat foods without pain or discomfort will return, and you will no longer be held back by a weak tooth. Sometimes crowns act as abutment teeth that hold in place a row of replacement teeth called a bridge. A bridge is an excellent restorative dentistry option when you need to replace one or several missing teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
After decay has extended to your tooth’s inner nerves and pulp, you need to fight the infection to ensure that it doesn’t return, as well as repair the damaged tooth. This process of treating the infected tooth is called root canal therapy and is a great procedure to maintain your oral health. After a root canal, you may continue to protect your tooth with a dental crown.
