Here at Rogler Family Dentistry, we practice restorative dentistry. We understand how essential your teeth are to the overall health of your mouth, jawbone, and body, so we’ll always offer the best options to restore and preserve your teeth whenever possible.
Using the latest in dental technology, we’ll examine your smile and determine the best way to save your natural tooth and prevent it from needing to be extracted. No matter which restorative dental treatment is right for you, our team will ensure it brings you the results you desire while also improving your health and appearance.

If you have damaged a tooth that needs to be restored, we offer immediate dental restorations that can enhance a tooth in just one day. We offer dental veneers to improve the appearance of a tooth, or we can use dental crowns to completely enhance the health and look of your impaired tooth.
When you come in for one of these treatments, we use a quick two-step process to successfully restore your smile. Before you receive your permanent, custom-made restoration, we’ll always ensure you have a natural-looking temporary that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence in-between visits.
If you have left a tooth untreated with an infection, it will likely begin to decay. Luckily, if it becomes to decay, our team can save it before you lose it. After receiving treatment, we use composite dental fillings to protect a tooth that had a cavity from future harm. This restorative treatment will remove the decay from your tooth and then seal it off from it happening again with proper oral care.
Root Canal Therapy
When we save a damaged or infected tooth, we’re not only saving the tooth but also preserving the health and integrity of the jawbone. To successfully save a damaged or infected tooth, we’ll perform root canal therapy.
Although many patients believe root canal treatment to be painful and scary, it turns out that you’ll be in less pain when you undergo the process. Dr. Rogler will safely and gently remove the bacteria from your tooth and finish with a dental crown to keep it free from reinfection.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are the traditional option for replacing missing teeth as they allow patients to eat, speak, and smile again. Dentures are completely removable and can replace several missing teeth or your entire mouth.
Partial and full denture replacements are typically known to be a more affordable option than dental implants, however, they don’t last a lifetime. During your consultation, Dr. Rogler will be able to help you make a decision based on your needs.
Tooth loss affects millions of Americans today, but not everyone seeks a replacement. Here at Rogler Family Dentistry, we offer dental implants as a permanent, stable tooth replacement option. Dental implants are known to be the most successful, natural-looking solution to restoring missing teeth, plus they also help regenerate lost jawbone which helps improve your appearance overall.
Dr. Rogler will create a customized treatment plan for you and your smile to ensure you feel confident in the decision you make. No matter the number of missing teeth, we’ll have the right treatment to best meet your needs.
If you live with a denture piece and want a more secure solution or you’ve recently lost multiple teeth along an arch, then All-on-4 implants are for you. All-on-4 is a permanent alternative treatment to traditional dentures as they’re attached to your jaw with dental implants. There’s no more slipping or sliding around when eating or speaking with this restorative option.
Restorative Dentistry for Children
While most adults are familiar with restorative dentistry, we also offer some restorative treatments to kids. If you have an elementary-aged child or teenager, remember that their permanent teeth are the only teeth that they will ever have. If they damage one while playing sports or swinging on the monkey bars – give us a call.
At Rogler Family Dentistry, we can restore their teeth using a variety of methods. If we can correct the damage quickly, there is a reduced risk of the site becoming infected or the damage spreading. With younger kids, we typically recommend a bonding procedure because it’s quick and non-invasive.
The results of dental bonding look natural, and your child will be able to have a newly restored tooth in one visit. This is a painless procedure, which also makes it extremely beneficial for children. The one challenge to be aware of is that their teeth may continue to grow and if so, the restored tooth may appear shorter and need to be touched up when they become an adult.
Restorative Dentistry FAQs
We treat patients throughout the Long Valley area and have found that dental restorations can last anywhere from five years to a lifetime. This is highly dependent upon the patient and the type of restoration used.
A restored tooth needs to be treated and protected like a natural tooth. You must continue to brush and floss, not eat or bite down on anything inedible, avoid grinding your teeth, and regularly visit our office.
A lost tooth impacts much more than the appearance of your smile and should be replaced as soon as possible. Not only can surrounding teeth position to fill the gap left by a missing tooth, but food particles and bacteria can also become lodged in this space. Over time, one missing tooth could lead to decay, gum infections, and the loss of additional teeth.
For patients who are missing a single tooth, we often recommend a dental bridge or implant. This is a replacement tooth (or teeth) grounded to a natural tooth on either side by a dental crown. If you are missing multiple teeth, we may recommend replacing them with full or partial dentures or dental implants.
Unlike dentures, which are false teeth that are affixed to the gums using an adhesive, implant-supported dentures are held in place by dental implants that are fused to the jawbone.
Some patients prefer dentures because they require less in-office preparation, while implant dentures are a better solution for others. We’ll help you decide which tooth replacement option is best for your unique situation.
Most dental insurance plans do cover at least a portion of the cost of restorative dental treatment. While routine restorations like dental bonding are often covered at a higher rate, major restorative work may be covered at 50 percent or less.
Each insurance plan is different. We work with each patient to maximize the benefits of his or her plan, and also offer various payment and financing options to help make sure you get the care you need.
