Toluca Lake Dentist Walks You Through Restorative Treatment Options

Written by Dr. McKay on Apr 19, 2016

Today we are talking all about the treatments and technologies that our Toluca Lake dentists use to help patients repair and rebuild their smiles. We hope that this information helps you feel more confident and informed regarding the possibilities of restorative dental care. So let’s get started!

1. The dental filling

After our dental team removes an area of infection from you tooth, we can repair the tooth, and close up the eliminated tooth structure with a dental filling. Our office uses natural-looking, tooth-colored fillings, so that your smile looks attractive and natural.

2. Dental crowns

Our team uses dental crowns to rebuild teeth from which a significant dental material has been eliminated. We use dental crowns that are made of porcelain, and that are custom-shaded to suit the patient’s smile.

3. Dental bonding

Using dental resin, our team is able to fill in cracked and chipped enamel, and even rebuild chipped away portions of a tooth. Our dentist will apply the customized dental resin, and then cure it, so that it becomes hard and durable—this process is called dental bonding!

4. Veneers and LUMINEERS

Veneers and LUMINEERS are two types of porcelain restorations that are designed to cover all kind of structural and aesthetic dental problems. These thin restorations are applied over the patient’s natural enamel. You can use veneers and LUMINEERS to make your smile appear whiter, brighter, straighter, more seamless, and undamaged.

5. Tooth replacement options

If you are missing teeth, our team will help you figure out what kind of tooth replacement treatment is going to work well for you. Many people have great results with dental implants, which are stand-alone replacement teeth. Dentures and bridges are also excellent options for rebuilding damaged smiles.

As you can see, you have all kinds of treatment options available to you when you need to repair dental damage! Feel free to call our Toluca Lake dentists if you need more information about this very important topic.
