Prevention may be the cornerstone of good dental health, but restorative dentistry is just as important for when prevention is not enough. Your teeth go through a lot every day. They face acid attacks by oral bacteria and the pressures of normal bite forces. Even if you brush and floss exactly the way you should every time and visit us twice a year, you may still find that you have small areas of damage. Little cavities, chips or cracks can mar your smile. Fortunately, our Los Angeles restorative dentistry expert can help you restore it.
Unlike your skin or other body parts, your teeth cannot repair themselves. A small cavity can worsen into a larger cavity, and it can even cause infection or abscess. These are serious dental problems that can affect your overall dental and general health. Our Los Angeles restorative dentist uses a variety of techniques and procedures to repair your damaged teeth with fully customized results.
Restorative Dentistry Los Angeles
Our expert in restorative dentistry in Los Angeles offers:
• Tooth-colored fillings, which are used to restore teeth with cavities or small areas of damage.
• Inlays and onlays, which can be used to restore teeth with larger cavities or fractures.
• Porcelain crowns, which cover the entire natural crown of the tooth. These are excellent restorations after root canal treatment or dental trauma.
• Crowns and bridges, which are used to replace one or a few teeth with support by natural teeth next to the gap.
• Dental implants, which are used to replace the root and crown of the natural tooth.
• Dentures, which can replace an entire smile full of teeth.
At your appointment, we will determine the extent of the problem, as well as the best way to proceed with treatment. Our restorative dentist in Los Angeles takes care to ensure your comfort at every step. If you feel nervous or anxious about your treatment, let us know. We can take steps to make you feel more comfortable and relaxed, which may include sedation. Once your restoration is done, we will explain how to take care of it and maximize its lifespan.
