At Hudgens Dental, restorative dentistry addresses your dental concerns promptly, so you can return to living your life with a full set of beautiful, functional teeth.

Dr. Hudgens performs a wide range of restorative treatments, such as:

Dental bridges

Dental bridges replace missing teeth to restore your tooth function and appearance. These restorations utilize the support of your surrounding teeth to hold a set of prosthetic teeth in the gaps where your teeth are missing. Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, dental bridges offer an efficient and cost-effective tooth replacement method.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made caps shaped like teeth. They cover the visible part of damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, and color.

Dental implants

Dental implants are thin titanium posts that Dr. Hudgens surgically places into your jawbone and affixes with artificial teeth. As a top solution for tooth loss, dental implants are long lasting, make it easier for you to chew and talk, and improve your oral health. 


Dentures are custom-made prosthetic teeth. Dr. Hudgens offers full or partial dentures, which replace all or some of your teeth.


Fillings restore the decayed portion of a tooth that has a cavity. After removing the decayed part of the tooth, Dr. Hudgens restores and protects it with filling materials.

Periodontal treatment

If you have late-stage gum disease, Dr. Hudgens can manage your condition through scaling and root planing, gum grafting, and laser treatments.

TMJ treatment

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder causes stress on the joints that connect your jaw to your skull. Dr. Hudgens can create custom-made mouthguards to protect your teeth and shift your jaw into a more comfortable position.
