At Delaware Dental Studio, restorative dentistry stands at the heart of what we do. Our expert restorative dentist, Dr. Lynn Fee, performs the full gamut of restorative dentistry: crowns and bridges, root canals, dental implants, implant-supported dentures, and wisdom teeth removal. These procedures are designed to bring your teeth back to health, and if necessary, fill gaps in your smile.

Dental crowns have likely saved more teeth than any other dental procedure. A dental crown is a “cap” that covers a tooth that has become seriously damaged due to tooth decay or as a result of an accident. At Delaware Dental Studio, we use laser carved porcelain crowns for our Wilmington patients because they provide a natural-looking restoration with an exacting design.
A dental bridge is a dental procedure used to replace one or more missing teeth. Two crowns are placed on the adjoining teeth of where the gap is located, and another crown is attached between these crowns to replace the missing tooth, i.e., it is a bridge between the two adjoining teeth. Dental bridges are a cost-effective option to dental implants.
If you have severe tooth pain, more often than not, root canal therapy is the solution. Painful toothaches are often caused by an infection that has been left untreated for an extended period of time. A root canal is a dental procedure designed to remove the infected material inside your tooth (the pulp) and protect your tooth’s structural integrity. At Delaware Dental Studio, we understand our Delaware patients may be anxious when they hear the words “root canal.” But rest assured, Dr. Lynn Fee, our Wilmington dentist, regularly performs root canals without the patient feeling pain because she uses a gentle technique along with local anesthetic.
A dental implant is a small, screw-shaped piece of titanium that replicates the root of your missing tooth. After it is placed, the dental implant forms a bond with your natural tissue. In addition to offering the optimal long-term solution for your missing tooth, dental implants also offer other oral health benefits, including improving biting and chewing and preventing bone loss.
Implant-supported dentures offer many advantages over traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures are anchored to your jaw with dental implants, preventing them from shifting in your mouth, gum irritation, and falling out when you are talking or chewing. Dr. Lynn Fee has made hundreds of dentures and will specifically design your implant-supported denture to fit your mouth’s precise specifications.
Rarely do our patients have room in their mouth for all their wisdom teeth. Because the jaw is often too small to accommodate these extra teeth, serious complications can arise when wisdom teeth erupt, including damage to adjacent teeth, bite misalignment, infection, and teeth crowding. At Delaware Dental Studio, wisdom teeth removal is an in-office procedure that Dr. Lynn Fee has performed thousands of times. She uses a gentle approach combined with oral sedation and post-operative pain medication to ensure you remain comfortable at all times.
