Restorative Dentistry – Coronado, CA
Achieve a Fully Functional Smile
When your tooth is only minorly damaged, it may not seem like a big deal. But damaged teeth are not able to get better on their own, which means that damage is only going to get worse over time. The best thing you can do to prevent future damage to your tooth is to restore it with durable and natural-looking restorations! Whether you need to restore a single tooth with a dental crown or perform a full-mouth reconstruction, Advanced Dentistry can ensure that your smile functions as good as it looks! Give our dental office a call to get started!
What if I Do Nothing?
When you cut your arm, the body immediately begins working towards healing the cut to protect itself. Unfortunately, teeth do not function in this way. Once the enamel has been damaged, either from decay or forced trauma, neighboring teeth will begin to compensate for the open space left behind if the tooth is not restored. This results in your bite becoming uneven, difficulty chewing, increased sensitivity, and a higher risk for tooth loss.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
With the help of durable dental ceramics and cosmetic expertise from Dr. Popp, she and the rest of the team can create a dental crown or bridge that effectively restores your smile and gives you the confidence to perform daily functions with ease. Dental crowns are designed to seal damaged portions of teeth away from oral bacteria as well as restore your tooth’s fullest functions. Dental bridges consist of multiple crowns fused together to fill gaps in your smile.
When a cavity forms inside teeth, we need to remove both the decay and bacteria that caused it in the first place. What we’re left with is a small hole in your tooth, which can easily worsen if left unrestored. Our dental office uses tooth-colored fillings to restore teeth, so there’s no need to worry about metal fillings appearing in your mouth or causing problems later. If you have any metal fillings you’d like to replace, our dental office is more than happy to do so, especially if you’ve had them for several years.
One-Visit Dental Restorations
In the past, dental crowns took up to two weeks to create, even if you needed just one crown. With the help of one-visit restoration technology, it’s easy to capture a 3D image of your damaged tooth, import that data into software for additional tweaking, then send that model to a milling machine for fabrication. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking and highly durable dental crown, all in one visit. Creation only takes about an hour to complete, so you can walk out of the dental office with your new smile faster than ever!
Do you have multiple missing, broken or cracked teeth? Do you have multiple large fillings that are no longer effectively serving their purpose? At Advanced Dentistry, patients with multiple dental problems may want to consider full-mouth reconstruction to properly address their smile’s functions and esthetics. We’ll create a treatment plan that effectively addresses your needs and may include crowns, bridges, onlays, inlays, veneers, dental implants, dentures, or a combination of many of these different services.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you have extensive tooth loss, full and partial dentures are considered one of the most affordable solutions to restoring your smile. Full dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth at once, while partial dentures are better suited for multiple missing teeth on opposing sides of the mouth. During your consultation, we’ll go over the differences in greater detail, help you determine the right option for you, and discuss important maintenance tips to make them last.
