Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to prevent it, dental damage occurs and leads to aesthetic and functional dental changes. In order to minimize long-term damage to your smile it is important that you seek restorative care in a timely manner. Our Toluca Lake dentists are here to review some of the treatments we commonly use to correct dental damage. Keep reading to get more information!
Dental bonding: this is a quick, cost-effective, and versatile way to correct dental cracks and chips, and improve dental aesthetics! Dental bonding is done with dental resin—the resin begins as a soft malleable substance, and then hardens and bonds to the tooth when we cure it. Once the bonding process is complete the resin will blend seamlessly with your natural enamel, and be durable enough to stand up to the daily wear and tear of life.
Root canal therapy: if one of your teeth is severely damaged—either due to trauma or infection—you may benefit from root canal therapy. Root canal therapy allows our team to go into the core of your tooth and remove any damaged or vulnerable tissues, nerves, roots, etc. Then, we clean and restore the tooth with a customized crown.
CEREC restorations: these dental crowns are completely customizable and crafted here in our dental office. CEREC technology allows our team to design, craft, and place your restoration in just one dental appointment. CEREC crowns are made of porcelain, so they look natural and last for years.
Dental implants: if you are one of the many people suffering from tooth loss, finding a tooth replacement treatment is crucial to maintaining your oral health. Dental implants are permanent replacement teeth that are actually embedded in the patient’s jawbone tissue. These state-of-the-art replacement teeth look natural and function exceptionally well.
