Restorative Dentistry

Restore your smile with help from our dental team in Monroe, MI.

Restorative dentistry is used to restore the strength and beauty of your smile. If you’ve been suffering from pain caused by decay or other health conditions, you may benefit from restorative therapy. We offer conservative treatment solutions to preserve your natural teeth, as well as tooth replacement options. Here’s a list of our various restorative dental services.

Composite Dental Fillings

Harmful bacteria on the tooth can lead to decay. Dr. Balog can remove the decay and fill the area. Fillings can also be used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down. Tooth colored fillings are made of tooth colored, composite resin. This protects the tooth from infection and further decay.

Dental Implant Restorations

At the dental office of Gregory A. Balog, D.D.S. in Monroe, MI, we offer dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. They are also used to secure partial or complete dentures as well as support for dental bridges. Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health.


Dentures are beneficial for those who wish to replace all or most of their teeth. They are custom-made to provide a natural appearance and comfortable fit in your mouth. Dentures may restore your confidence and allow you to smile freely.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dentures are often ill fitting and lack stability, cause irritation to the gums and may make it difficult to eat certain foods. Patients who have received implant supported dentures from our practice often report feeling like they have their natural teeth again. They report being able to eat all foods and enjoy smiling confidently.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A tooth or teeth neighboring the missing tooth or teeth may be crowned, and used as anchoring teeth to support the replacement tooth. It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid shifting of surrounding teeth, which may lead to misaligned bite, TMJ and other problems.
