Toluca Lake Dentist Explains Which Treatments We Use To Correct Dental Damage

Dental damage can pop up for a number of different reasons, and manifest in a number of different ways. But regardless of how and when you experience dental damage, our Toluca Lake dentists can help you overcome these problems and achieve a healthy and whole smile again.

Today we are talking about some of the treatments that we frequently use to repair and rejuvenate smiles!

Dental bonding: this treatment involves our dentist placing dental resin over the patient’s natural dental enamel. Then, we cure the resin so that it becomes hard, stable, and shiny. Dental bonding is used to fill in cracks and chips, cover discolored enamel, and even rebuild chipped away enamel.

Dental crowns: crowns are used to repair teeth that are damaged, or that have been diminished due to dental cavities. Our office uses CEREC technology, so that we can craft and place dental crowns in just one dental appointment. We will actually make your crown in our office during your appointment. These restorations are crafted from porcelain, and are shaded to suit the patient’s smile.

LUMINEERS: porcelain LUMINEERS can cover all kinds of aesthetic and structural dental issues. These thin restorations are designed to cover the visible portions of the tooth, to give the patient’s tooth a fresh, healthy, and refinished appearance. LUMINEERS, once attached, stay in place permanently, and are easy to care for and resistant to staining. Our dental team is usually able to complete LUMINEER treatment in just two or three dental appointments.

These are just a few of the treatments that we offer in our Toluca Lake dental office. We work hard to tailor our patients’ treatment plans to meet their unique needs, so feel free to reach out to our team if you want additional information about the treatments we offer. We look forward to speaking with you!
