Restorative Dentistry in Wellington

Keep your smile feeling and functioning at its absolute best with restorative dentistry. From simple procedures like dental fillings, to more complex solutions like dental prosthetics and root canal therapy, restorative dentistry aims to revitalize decayed or damaged teeth. With our comprehensive restorative care, you can take back your overall oral health so you can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.


Restorative Dentistry

Dental Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that protect your natural tooth and revitalize the function of your bite. If you've received a root canal or dental implant, a crown can also be used to bring back the health of your tooth. Since dental crowns can be made from many materials, they are ideal for a variety of restorative and cosmetic applications, so you can smile with confidence.

Dental Implants

Missing a tooth? Need an extraction? The look of your smile, functionality of your bite, and overall oral health can all be restored by a dental implant. Dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting tooth replacement, and the only one that actually halts the progression of bone loss. They're one of the most secure ways to restore lost teeth, so get in touch with us today to see if implants are right for you!

Restorative Dentistry

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches are often a sign of a serious infection and can cause serious pain. There's no need to wait in discomfort any longer thanks to root canal therapy. This common procedure can provide you with much-needed relief and restore the health of your tooth. Plus, root canals can save your tooth from an extraction so you can smile with comfort and confidence.

Restorative Dentistry


Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.

Restorative Dentistry

Crowns and Bridges

When you're missing more than a few teeth in a row, your oral wellness takes a hit — not to mention your confidence and overall health as well. With crowns and bridges, our team can restore your bite for the long run. Since crowns and bridges are affixed to your smile, they won’t move or shift, making them a great alternative to partial dentures. There's also no invasive surgery involved, so you can skip the healing time and get back to smiling again.

Restorative Dentistry


Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of acrylic and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.

Restorative Dentistry

Partial Dentures

Missing just a few teeth? Partial dentures may be the right choice for you. Partial dentures look natural, are removable, and can be a great solution to restoring the function of your teeth and jaw. Make the first step in restoring your smile by booking a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix Crooked Teeth?

Absolutely! Cosmetic dentistry is a versatile field that offers numerous solutions to common dental problems, including crooked teeth. One of the main goals of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance the appearance of your smile. If you're dealing with crooked teeth, you're probably familiar with the impact it can have on your confidence and self-esteem.

Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?

This is a common question and the answer largely depends on your insurance provider and the specific procedure. Generally, cosmetic dentistry procedures are considered elective and therefore not typically covered by dental insurance. However, there are instances where a cosmetic procedure can also restore function or improve oral health, in which case, your insurance might offer some level of coverage.

For example, procedures like dental implants or crowns, which can be categorized as both restorative and cosmetic, might be partially covered. It's always best to check with your insurance provider to understand what is covered under your plan. At South Shore Dentistry, we understand that the cost of treatment is a concern for many patients, and we're here to help you navigate the process and explore all available options.
The best way to determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rodriguez at Diversey Dental Studio. During this appointment, she'll thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, discuss your aesthetic goals, and provide personalized recommendations on the treatments that could benefit you most.

What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Fix?

Cosmetic dentistry can address a wide range of dental issues. From minor imperfections to more complex dental problems, there's likely a cosmetic solution that can help. Some of the issues that cosmetic dentistry can fix include:

1. Discolored or stained teeth: Teeth whitening procedures can brighten your smile and eliminate stains caused by food, drink, or aging.

2. Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth: Dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or crowns can restore the appearance and function of damaged teeth.

3. Missing teeth: Dental implants, bridges, and dentures offer solutions for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile.

4. Crooked or misaligned teeth: Clear aligners or traditional braces can straighten your teeth and improve your bite.

5. Gaps between teeth: Veneers or orthodontic treatments can close gaps and create a more uniform smile.Dr. Daniel Krauss at South Shore Dentistry in Wellington is experienced in all these procedures and more. He is committed to helping patients achieve their dream smile through personalized, high-quality cosmetic dentistry treatments.

How Long Do Cosmetic Dentistry Results Last?

The durability of cosmetic treatment varies depending on the procedure and how well you take care of your teeth afterward. For instance, teeth whitening can last anywhere from several months to a few years, but the longevity is influenced by dietary choices and oral hygiene habits. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, can last up to 15 years or more with proper care. Similarly, dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution with the potential to last a lifetime if properly maintained.
