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.
Our Approach Restorative Care
The most critical aspect of what we do on a daily basis is gain a clear understanding of the patients 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.

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.
A large cavity or significant area of damage 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.
Partial dentures can replace several missing teeth, while full dentures restore an entire arch. At our Albuquerque, New Mexico, practice, our dentist offers both traditional and implant-supported dentures depending on the needs of the patient.
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.
We offer same-day restorations at our Albuquerque, NM, practice, including crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays. Our advanced E4D CAD/CAM dental system allows us to design and create your custom tooth crown in a single visit.
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.
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that obstructs the airway and reduces oxygen flow to the brain and body. Dr. Kelly can diagnose and treat sleep apnea with a custom oral appliance at our Albuquerque, New Mexico, practice.
