Restorative Dentistry in Tigard, OR

Restorative dentistry helps keep your natural teeth as well as provide viable replacement teeth, should the need arise. We use quality materials and a highly trained staff to ensure your comfort and a successful outcome to every restorative dentistry procedure we provide, which includes fillings, crowns, bridges, partial dentures, implant restorations, and simple extractions. We want to ensure the whole families oral healthcare needs are met, which is why we treat patients from young children to seniors at Lisa Gitelson, DMD.

Dental Fillings

Tooth decay happens and when it does, dental fillings are placed to keep the structure of the tooth solid. We offer a wide variety of options when filling your tooth including traditional amalgam fillings as well as composite fillings, which is a tooth colored material that blends in with the rest of your teeth. Dental fillings ensure the health of your decayed tooth as we remove the decay and replace it with the filling that allows you to use your tooth as you normally would prior to the decay.

Dental Crowns

Sometimes a tooth suffers extensive damage, whether due to tooth decay, infection, or trauma and cannot be repaired. Because our goal is to help you keep your natural teeth intact, we offer dental crowns, which are a simple way to allow you to keep the roots of your teeth, while replacing the top (crown of the tooth) with a crown. The crown mimics the size and shape of your surrounding teeth and is strong enough to withstand almost everything that your natural teeth could handle, leaving you with a solid replacement for your affected tooth without the risk of excessive bone loss or shifting teeth.

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can be unsightly as well as difficult to handle when it comes to talking and chewing. Dental bridges help to "bridge the gap" by placing artificial teeth in the middle of your healthy teeth. The bridge relies on your healthy teeth that are surrounding it to serve as anchors and the crowns serve as your new teeth. Dental bridges are a good option for tooth replacement because they work with the shape of your mouth, making talking and eating just as easy as it was before you were missing any teeth.

Partial Dentures

When you are missing a few teeth in a row, we offer partial dentures to help make talking, chewing, and even smiling easier. Partial dentures are a convenient solution to missing teeth; they provide you with a partial set of teeth that are removable for cleaning in order to ensure that your mouth stays healthy and free from decay or infection. The white teeth are held in place on a pink base, which is meant to match the tone of your natural gums, making it look as good as possible.

Implant Restoration

Implants permanently replace missing teeth by surgical attachment to the jawbone. After the implant is placed, and the required healing time has elapsed, the doctor will attach a crown to the implant, effectively replacing the missing tooth.

Dental implants provide several advantages over dentures and less permanent tooth replacement solutions:
•  They are very durable, nearly undetectable, and the closest thing to real teeth
•  They help prevent teeth from shifting to fill gaps
•  They improve bite and chewing ability
•  They reduce the sunken look caused by missing teeth

While implants can be more expensive than bridges and dentures, the long-term health benefits and a natural looking smile make them a smart long-term investment.


Apart from the traditional restorations, like dental crowns and direct fillings, we also specialize in inlays. Inlays, also known as “indirect” fillings, are only offered by a select number of dentists, even though they have many benefits.


An onlay can be used to treat larger areas of decay. Unlike inlays, an onlay restoration can extend beyond one or more of the occlusal cusps. On top of its durability, porcelain possesses the same light-scattering properties of natural enamel. It can also be matched to the shade of your tooth, making it ideal for patients concerned with esthetics.
