Restorative Dentistry is a way of labeling the integrated management of oral health issues. As well as restoring the mouth to a functional and esthetic state. Procedures that are under this label include prosthodontic dentistry, fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures, and dental implants. The American Dental Association does not recognize this as a dental specialty. However, general dentists are still allowed to perform any of these procedures without additional certification.
