Dr. Raminder Singh strives to provide patients with the tools and knowledge they need. When teeth are treated well, they can last a lifetime. Unfortunately, it’s also common for dental structures to need some outside support. Between the possibilities of decay, tooth infection, and physical trauma, teeth are likely to require some form of restoration. With contemporary techniques, materials, and technologies, Tompkins Dental will restore your smile to its youthful shape, appearance, and function.
Restorative Dentistry and Your Smile
Each restorative case is tailored to the individual patient. We will communicate with you throughout the process, so that you are aware of every restorative option. Dr. Singh will recommend the most comfortable and least invasive treatment possible that will still provide the desired results. As with smile makeovers, we will employ a variety of restorative treatments to answer every aspect of worn teeth. Between composite fillings, crowns, dentures, partials, bridges, and root canals, we will find the perfect treatment plan.

When teeth become damaged, they may need extra support to remain in place. A tooth compromised by decay or exterior forces may fail without some help. Dental crowns can provide this additional aid. Commonly referred to as tooth caps, they fit over remaining natural teeth to enhance the portion above the gum line. In order for a crown to fit, the tooth may need to be prepared. Once some of its structure is removed, there is adequate space for the crown. With a crown in place, your tooth will both look and function as if it is wholly natural.
Bridges combine several crowns to replace a missing tooth. Crowns fit over the teeth neighboring a gap. They fill the space with a pontic, or a false tooth. These crowns are bonded in place to act as a fixed tooth replacement. Bridges may replace a single tooth, or several adjacent missing teeth.
