Think you don’t need restorative dentistry? No matter how well you take care of your teeth, how well you brush and floss, even if you visit your Charlotte dentist with regularity, life can take a toll on your teeth. For example:
- Drinking acidic drinks – even healthy ones like juice – can lead to tooth decay. So can conditions like dry mouth.
- Stress can cause night time clenching that you might not even be aware of, and that can break or wear down your teeth.
- Accidents occur when you least expect them, leading to tooth loss.
- Even an unbalanced or poorly placed restoration can cause damage to your surrounding teeth.
And if damage is left without treatment, it can lead to infection, abscess, tooth loss, systemic inflammation, and illness. But it isn’t just your health that takes a blow from missing, damaged, and decayed teeth. It’s your confidence and quality of life that suffers as well. Whatever your needs, Dr. Yang’s skill, training, and compassion can precisely repair and restore your teeth from a variety of dental dilemmas.
Capstone Dental’s Restorative Dentistry Options Include:
- Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
- Crowns and Bridges
- Dentures & Partials
- Endodontics/Root Canals
- Oral Surgery
No matter whether you need a simple filling or dental implants and oral surgery, we always make sure that you understand all the steps of the process and that you are completely comfortable at all times.
Cavities don’t just happen to kids. That’s why we recommend regular checkups for adults too. If we do find a cavity, we will remove the decayed part of your tooth and repair your tooth with either an amalgam filling or a beautiful, tooth-colored filling depending on your needs and desires. Your tooth will be back to full function, for a complete smile.
These restorations are perfect for teeth that have a little more damage than a simple filling can repair. Sometimes the reason is because the tooth is too compromised to hold a traditional filling, and sometimes it’s because the damaged area also includes the tip or cusp of the tooth. Created from strong and durable porcelain, dental inlays and onlays repair your tooth and bring strength and beauty back to your smile.
Dental crowns are the right choice for teeth that need structural support or have had a root canal. Crowns essentially become the new chewing surface of your tooth for ideal comfort and function. Crowns can also act as an anchor for a dental bridge – one of our tooth replacement options. Depending on your particular needs, we offer both natural-looking and metal-free bridges or porcelain-fused-to-metal for superior strength.
If you have lost all or many of your teeth, our full and partial dentures can help restore both confidence and function. Dentures are a convenient and affordable way to replace your teeth so you can chew, speak, and laugh without embarrassment. We offer both removable dentures that are held in place by denture adhesives or implant-retained dentures for a secure fit like no other.

You need your teeth – and your own, natural teeth are always best. When a tooth becomes infected, we like to recommend root canals for just that reason – to save from removal. A root canal allows us to clean it out, remove the infected material inside your tooth, and replacing it with a sealant. The tooth is then securely topped with a beautiful crown. Of course, we keep you comfortable and can even offer sedation dentistry to help you completely relax.
While you may not look forward to oral surgery, we understand that it is comforting to have surgery completed in the office you know by a dental team you trust. That’s why Dr. Yang performs almost all oral surgery, from extractions to dental implants, right here in your Charlotte neighborhood. If you require advanced care, such as certain situations of bony impaction, we may refer you to one of our trusted surgical specialists. We will monitor your progress and bring your smile right back home after the procedure is completed.
