Broken, infected, or missing teeth can make life difficult and compromise your health.
Thanks to restorative dentistry, patients with serious oral health issues can achieve healthy, functional, and beautiful smiles.
At 38th Street Dental in Austin, TX, we are dedicated to helping patients through advanced restorative treatments.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
While cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the aesthetics of your smile, restorative dentistry is a field of dentistry that focuses on improving the health and function of your teeth and gums.
Restorative dental treatments can repair compromised teeth, replace missing teeth, or rehabilitate an unstable bite. Our treatments can also fortify your teeth to prevent additional damage. If you struggle with any of the following oral health conditions, you can benefit from restorative dentistry at our Austin, TX, practice:
- Dental decay
- One or more missing teeth
- A cracked tooth
- A weak or eroded tooth
- An infected tooth
During your consultation, our dentists will perform a thorough examination to identify your dental needs and recommend the appropriate restorative dentistry treatments.

Popular Restorative Dentistry Procedures at 38th Street Dental
If you have a small or medium-sized cavity, we will typically recommend a filling. However, instead of a traditional metal filling, which can eventually start to show through your tooth, we will provide a tooth-colored filling made from composite resin. Not only will it match your smile, but it will also bond to your tooth more securely.
A bridge can replace one to three missing teeth. This type of restoration is made up of several crowns fused together. We can provide a traditional bridge, which will attach to your natural teeth. Alternatively, we can supply an implant-supported bridge.
Root Canal Therapy
If the soft tissue within a tooth becomes infected, a root canal procedure can relieve painful symptoms and help you avoid the need for extraction. Using gentle techniques and anesthesia, we can remove the infected tissue and restore it with a custom dental crown.
Titanium dental implants will fuse with your jawbone and replace your tooth roots. Our dentists will work with a specialized oral surgeon or periodontist for implant placement. Then they will fabricate a custom-made implant-supported crown, denture, or bridge to top the implant and replace the entire missing tooth. They are extremely stable, and prevent bone loss in the jaw.
State-of-the-art dental implants can even support full-arch dentures. To support a full prosthetic, your surgeon will place four or more implant posts. In many cases, we can collaborate with your surgeon to provide All-on-4® dentures in a single appointment.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
If you have extensive damage or multiple oral health concerns, we can merge several treatments into a comprehensive full mouth reconstruction. Your treatment plan will be completely customized to meet your health needs and personal goals.
At 38th Street Dental in Austin, TX, we only recommend treatments that will truly benefit you for years to come. If you want to whiten or beautify your smile, we also offer cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you achieve your goals. No matter what treatments you receive, Drs. Meek and Tasch will work carefully and meticulously to provide personalized care and outstanding results.

Once again 38th Street Dental came through with flying colors. The plan was to get a temporary after tooth extraction in a few days but when Dr. Tasch found out that I was to attend a memorial service shortly he spent an hour putting a shorter term temporary then and there, without extra charge. That's above and beyond!View on Google
