Operative Dentistry: Comprehensive treatment of dental problems involving the teeth utilizing both preventive and restorative options.

These techniques can involve high technology procedures such as CAD-CAM restorations. Many procedures in Operative Dentistry such as whitening and bonding in combination with the new esthetic materials, can provide the patient with affordable options for the solution to many tooth related esthetic problems.
