Over the years, your teeth, gums and related structures see a lot of use. Decay and damage to your teeth can lead to a smile that is less than perfect. In these cases, we use restorative dentistry processes to restore your teeth and related structures to work well and look natural.
At Orange Beach Family Dentistry, we use many different procedures, advanced materials and state-of-the-art equipment to restore your smile. The exact combination we use will vary from patient to patient and the state of your teeth, bones and overall oral health. Most commonly, restorative work involves techniques for creating custom bridges, dental implants, inlays, onlays, crowns and dentures.
Get the Smile You Want with Restorative Dentistry!
If you are ready to restore your smile to a healthy state and proper functioning, make an appointment with Dr. Lauren to discuss the available options. We will work with you and explain the process every step of the way. Our entire team is dedicated to providing comfortable, compassionate care without judgement in as few visits to our office as is feasible.
In addition to a comprehensive oral examination, we take panoramic digital X-rays with our NOMAD Pro 2™ Handheld X-ray system and photographs of your mouth and jaw using our SOPROCARE Intraoral Camera. We review our findings with you and discuss your options before committing to any treatment plan.
Whether it’s due to decay, trauma or other oral issues, missing teeth are more than just an inconvenience. Over time, the space left by a missing tooth can lead to additional problems with your remaining teeth, gums and jaw. To avoid these costly concerns, Dr. Lauren may recommend a dental implant.
Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth, and form a strong and secure base for attaching new replacement teeth. This combination provides a natural and long-lasting solution for patients who have lost one or more teeth. For a more in-depth discussion on your options for dental implants, make an appointment with Orange Beach Family Dentistry today.
When teeth become severely worn down, fillings fail or the top surfaces of your tooth break, talk to Dr. Lauren about a ceramic crown. Modern processes are much stronger and longer-lasting than tooth-colored fillings used in the past. We create beautiful tooth-colored inlays and onlays for damaged teeth in the front and back of your mouth. Each custom-created onlay or inlay is precisely shaped and colored to blend with the rest of your teeth.
CEREC® One-Day Crowns
Orange Beach Family Dentistry is proud to offer our patients CEREC® One-Day Crowns. This high-tech process uses cutting-edge imaging and shaping systems to create custom ceramic crowns in just one office visit!
Restore Your Smile in One Visit with CEREC® One-Day Crowns
CEREC® One-Day Crowns are made of a strong, tooth-colored ceramic material that blends naturally with your existing teeth. Unlike older technologies that build up crowns from separate layers of material, CEREC® One-Day Crowns are milled from solid ceramic. This results in a stronger, longer-lasting crown.
Best of all, there’s no need to make multiple appointments for fitting and removing temporary crowns. You’ll leave our office with your new, metal-free crown the same day! Ask Dr. Lauren and the Orange Beach Family Dentistry team if CEREC® One-Day Crowns are right for you.

We know that it can be embarrassing and uncomfortable to discuss issues with your smile. We take our commitment to providing gentle and compassionate restorative dentistry services seriously. No matter what oral issues you are facing, we will listen to your concerns and involve you in the process every step of the way.
