Restorative treatment refers to the various ways employed by dentists to restore and repair your tooth structure that is missing either due to decay, a failed restoration, or fracture of a tooth. A smile is said to be healthy and strong when its strength, function, and appearance are all good. If there are problems that affect any one among these, a combination of treatments will be necessary to restore it to the ideal state.
