Your teeth work hard every day and, over time, enamel can begin to break down or old dental work needs to be rejuvenated. Restorative dentistry treatments from Beachside Smiles in Manhattan Beach, CA, are customized to every patient’s unique oral health. This is the dental care that results in pain-free, good-looking, strong smiles that last.
Whether you have one missing tooth or an entire arch of missing teeth, dental implants are the route to permanent replacement. The implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone and, after healing is complete, a crown is bonded in place. The result is a restoration that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth. Some patients who need to replace multiple teeth can benefit from a denture-supported implant that is also permanent, does not need adhesive, and requires only a few implants to secure it in place.
Same Day Crowns (CEREC)
Your Manhattan Beach dental office has the capability to create some restorations while you wait. Same day crowns are made using the CEREC system, an in-office technology that allows for the creation of crowns and other restorations on-site, rather than waiting weeks for the final repair to arrive from a dental lab. If you have a broken crown, fractured tooth, weak tooth, infected or decayed tooth, or even an unsightly tooth, your solution is only one dental visit away.
Even if everything seems fine above the gumline, tooth pain is an indication that something isn’t right within your tooth. Usually, decay or a tooth infection are to blame. To save your tooth and protect it from further complications and the potential need for extraction, your dentist will perform root canal therapy. This involves the cleanout of the canals of the tooth, then filling them, and topping the treated tooth with a crown to protect it from future trouble.
If you aren’t experiencing a dental emergency and do not need a same-day crown, your dentist may recommend a conventional dental crown. This usually requires two dental visits for prep and bonding, with a week or two in between to wait for the crown to be created by the dental lab. A crown is an excellent repair for a problem tooth, a cosmetic upgrade for an stained tooth, and a sturdy anchor for restorations like dental bridges.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings are a versatile dental restoration. They are primarily used to repair a decayed tooth, but they can also be used to replace unsightly, toxic silver fillings or fix a chipped or cracked tooth. This is a dental treatment that can beautify as well as restore to create a smile that is complete and unmarred.
