Restorative Dentistry vs. Cosmetic Dentistry A Closer Look at the Difference
The purpose of restorative dentistry is to maintain or improve your dental health and function. On the other hand, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your smile, largely through elective dental care.
While restorative treatments do offer some cosmetic benefits, dental form and function are always the primary focus. If you're looking to address purely aesthetic concerns, cosmetic dentistry may be the better treatment path for you.
Fortunately, in addition to our wide range of restorative dentistry services, we also offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including Invisalign®, teeth whitening, and porcelain dental veneers. Our Warsaw team can conveniently handle all your dental care needs under one roof.
What Can Restorative Dentistry Do for Me?
Preserve Your Oral Health
Your teeth must be maintained with regular dental care to ensure good long-term oral health. When you attend biannual dentistry appointments, Dr. Stofer can protect your natural teeth, help you avoid uncomfortable procedures, and save you money by preventing the need for more costly treatment.
Relieve Your Dental Pain
Cavities, cracks, chips, and infections can all cause dental pain, making it difficult to chew food and enunciate. Painful conditions require immediate care from a dentist in order to prevent extractions and to restore maximum functionality to your smile.
Boost Your Confidence
Issues that affect your oral health can also negatively impact the appearance of your teeth. The dentistry procedures Dr. Stofer offers can not only keep your smile healthy, but also help it look brighter, fuller, and more youthful.

Our Featured Restorative Procedures
If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth, implant dentistry is undoubtedly the most durable, natural-looking solution available. Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the tooth's natural roots and provide a stable foundation for crowns, bridges, and dentures. During a simple surgical procedure, a post is embedded in the jawbone and topped with a temporary prosthetic. After the post fuses with the bone through a process called osseointegration, dental implants are topped with a custom-made porcelain restoration.
Dental crowns are used to fully repair and protect the healthy portion of a weakened, cracked, infected, or aesthetically flawed tooth. Crowns can be affixed on top of a natural tooth or attached to dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental Solutions in Warsaw uses advanced dentistry technology to customize the color, shape, and size of dental crowns for optimal comfort and aesthetics.
A dental bridge may be an affordable solution for you if you have gaps in your smile resulting from multiple neighboring missing teeth. Also called a partial denture, a dental bridge fills in these gaps with beautiful, porcelain restorations that repair oral function. A traditional removable dental bridge attaches to nearby teeth restored with dental crowns, or you can have a fixed bridge cemented into place for added security. An increasingly popular option is a dental bridge retained by implants, which offer strong, supportive roots for your replacement teeth.
For patients suffering from complete tooth loss, dentures provide a full prosthetic replacement for the upper or lower dental arches. Traditional removable dentures are custom made to fit your mouth and stay in place through a suction piece that rests on the gums. Modern implant-supported dentures are fixed in place offering patients maximum convenience and security.
If you have a tooth compromised by minor cavities or decay, the dentist can provide a tooth-colored filling to restore your oral health. A filling is made from composite that is color-matched to blend seamlessly into your smile. As a result, this restoration not only strengthens your tooth but enhances its appearance.
Many patients who could benefit from dental implants do not qualify because of significant jawbone recession. However, with a bone grafting procedure, Dr. Stofer can boost your candidacy for dental implants. A bone graft will increase the density and volume of the jawbone for implants at a future appointment.
When a dental infection spreads inward to the root canals of a tooth, it can lead to serious complications, including pain, swelling, and even tooth loss. Prompt root canal treatment is essential for relieving dental pain and preserving your smile. Dr. Stofer can gently clear the dental infection, sanitize and seal the tooth, and then cap it with a lifelike dental crown that provides protection and structural support.
Nervous About Your Dental Care? We Offer Sedation Dentistry
Does the thought of visiting the dentist make you nervous? Do you have an especially sensitive smile that makes dental care more uncomfortable than it should be? You have nothing to fear at our Warsaw practice—we offer sedation dentistry.
You can choose to receive oral conscious, nitrous oxide, or IV sedation, depending on your unique needs. Each of these sedation dentistry options can help you feel deeply relaxed during your dental care, so your visit flies by without worry.
Insurance and Financing For Restorative Dentistry
Because this type of dentistry is considered medically necessary, you should receive coverage for your treatment. Elective dentistry treatments, like veneers and Invisalign, are not covered. We accept most forms of dental insurance, and a member of our team in Warsaw can file a claim on your behalf to help you maximize your coverage.
If you are uninsured or have high out-of-pocket costs for your dental care, financing can help. We accept CareCredit®, which offers payment plans with little or no interest. You can arrange a monthly repayment plan that works for your budget.
