What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry services are focused on repairing and replacing damaged, decayed, or missing teeth to help patients regain the function of their smile. Thanks to our state-of-the-art CEREC technology, our dentists can create custom dental restorations on the same day as your appointment. This way, you won’t have to wait weeks or months for your final dental restoration.
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Our same-day dental crowns can restore damaged and decayed teeth with customized tooth caps made in our Southern California offices. Crowns are a simple and effective way to restore your teeth’s strength. Dr. Lavi will design your dental crowns to match your surrounding teeth to give you a seamless fit that’ll improve your oral health and confidence. See how you can reclaim your smile in just one appointment.
Patients missing one or several adjacent teeth can rely on dental bridges to “bridge the gap” between their remaining teeth with durable, natural-looking prosthetics known as pontics. A bridge requires two dental crowns to be placed on either side of your smile’s gap to function like anchors, allowing for a sturdy restoration. We make crowns and pontics in-office, so you can receive personalized, stunning results in our Southern California office.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to tooth loss, look no further than dental implants. These restorations use titanium posts that are inserted into your jawbone for lifelong smile restoration. Because tooth implants replace teeth from root to crown, you won’t have to worry about jawbone deterioration or changes to your facial shape. Implants are known as “the gold standard of restorative dentistry” for their unique and permanent benefits.
Frequently Asked Questions
Restorative dentistry services are crucial to your oral health because damaged and missing teeth can lead to further dental problems if left unaddressed. Decayed teeth can invite bacteria and infection while missing teeth can result in the loss of jawbone mass, which can alter your facial shape and put your health at serious risk.
Restorative dentistry comes with a host of benefits, including:
- Improved bite function
- Restored smile appearance
- Protects surrounding teeth shifting
- Prevents infection and further dental issues
- Enhances self-confidence
If you suspect your oral health can benefit from a restorative treatment, don’t wait to schedule an appointment with your dentist.
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of teeth, which can often address their functionality depending on the treatment. Restorative dentistry, however, focuses on restoring and repairing teeth to improve oral health and bite function. These services can also enhance the appearance of your smile in some cases. Consult your dentist to learn if a cosmetic or restorative treatment best meets your smile and oral health goals.
The strongest dental restoration available is dental implants, which attach to your jawbone for a permanent solution to tooth loss. However, some patients may not qualify for implants, as they require sufficient jawbone mass and gum health. Schedule a consultation with your dentist to learn which restorative solution best suits your oral health needs.
