Restorative Dentistry in La Jolla CA
Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring health and function to damaged or missing teeth. At La Jolla Dental Boutique, we offer a complete scope of services to repair damaged, decayed, or missing teeth. Many restorative services also improve your appearance, much like cosmetic dentistry. However, restorative dentistry focuses on your health and maintaining good oral function for eating, speaking, and smiling comfortably. Read about the individual restorative procedures we provide below:
Dental crowns, sometimes called caps, are restorations placed over damaged teeth or teeth with cavities. After removing any infection, a dental crown is placed over the tooth to restore chewing ability while protecting the natural tooth from additional damage. Our crowns are carefully matched to your natural teeth for a flawless, natural look.
Restorative dentistry using dental bridges is an economical way to regain proper function allowing you to eat properly. If you have one or more missing teeth, a dental bridge can be designed to replace them. The bridge attaches to remaining natural teeth on either side of the gap and is fixed and not removable.
When most or all of your teeth are missing, the impact on your health is dramatic. You cannot eat a healthy, balanced diet, your cheeks and face are not appropriately supported, and your appearance is prematurely aged. La Jolla Dental Boutique offers a full range of denture options as well as complete denture repair and maintenance.
A dental filling is often the first and best way to fill a cavity and restore function to a damaged tooth. We perform amalgam-free restorative dentistry for patients with cavities. We use composite resin fillings that protect and strengthen the tooth. If you have old amalgam fillings that are loose or damaging your teeth, we can replace them with composite dental fillings for improved performance, safety, and aesthetics. Our new generation of dental filling materials are bioactive and help to heal your tooth from the inside as opposed to just closing the hole formed by the cavity. They are also made with new technology that allows your filling to always look the same shade as your tooth, so over time when your teeth get darker, or if you bleach your teeth and they lighten up, your filling will always continue to match!
When your teeth are loose, worn, or misaligned due to problems with your bite (how the teeth meet), a bite adjustment is needed to restore proper alignment and alleviate any additional damage to your teeth that could lead to tooth loss and other oral health problems. Bite adjustments can also relieve the pain of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Depending on your symptoms, we may recommend braces, dental reconstruction, bite splints, or teeth reshaping to give you the best results.
We are thrilled to offer our patients dental implants, the most advanced and only permanent solution for missing teeth. Dental implants replace the missing teeth roots with titanium or zirconia posts that support a restoration replacing the visible portion of the missing teeth. We can place individual, multiple, or full mouth dental implants to restore your bite force, ability to eat whatever you like, and maintain the strength and health of your jawbone.
