A man with a healthy smile

Restorative Dentistry

Broken, decayed, or missing teeth can interfere with proper function. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to more dental issues.

Many dental treatments focus on managing oral health problems and restoring full function to your smile.

Dentist Timothy M. Kelly offers a wide range of restorative dentistry procedures at our Albuquerque, NM, practice.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Deb discusses her care at the practice of Dr. Tim Kelly in this temporomandibular (TMJ) disorder testimonial. She stresses the impact Dr. Kelly's gentle touch and calming demeanor had on her. After experiencing anxiety over trips to the dentist, she now feels completely comfortable during appointments.

Our Approach to Restorative Care

The most critical aspect of what we do on a daily basis is gain a clear understanding of the patient's unique needs. This involves an examination of the function of the oral cavity, and its role in the overall health, beauty, comfort and longevity of the patient's smile.

Often, it is difficult for patients to visualize the outcome of their choices, especially when the benefits of early restorative care may not become apparent for another 20 years.  Dr. Timothy Kelly and our team's goal is to find out each patient's desires, discuss potential outcomes, and formulate a long-term health care plan.

How do I know if I need this type of dentistry?

Common Restorative Dentistry Procedures


If you have a small cavity or chip in your tooth, then it can likely be treated with a dental filling. Dr. Kelly uses biocompatible, tooth-colored composite resin to seamlessly restore your smile. A filling can be placed in a single appointment.

If your tooth has a large cavity or significant area of damage, it will require a dental crown. These custom restorations cover the entire tooth structure for added strength and resiliency. Crowns are also used to restore dental implants and root canal-treated teeth.

Localized tooth loss can be treated with a dental bridge. This type of restoration consists of dental crowns with artificial teeth between them. Dr. Kelly offers both traditional and implant-supported bridges at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, practice.

Dental Implants

A missing tooth can be replaced with a dental implant. These threaded titanium posts are inserted into the jaw to replace missing tooth roots. Implants can support a wide variety of restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.

TMJ Therapy

The condition of your jaw joints is a primary factor of overall dental health. Dr. Kelly is an expert in TMJ treatment. He uses advanced technology to determine the correct position of your jaw, then designs a plan to achieve that position.

What Will My Treatment Cost?

Restorative dentistry encompasses a range of solutions for a variety of issues. No two treatment plans are exactly alike, which makes it difficult to quote a price for implants and other restorative treatments without first conducting a consultation. 

Our Albuquerque, NM, practice wants to make your care as affordable as possible. We work with many major insurance providers, including Delta Dental, United Concordia, Delta Dental, and Metlife. If you are uninsured or making out-of-pocket payments, we can help you coordinate financing through LendingPoint™.
