Too many people avoid coming in for dental care, because they mistakenly believe that nothing can be done to restore their smiles. The truth is that, with everything that’s available in modern dentistry, you now have more options than ever before when it comes time to rebuild and repair your smile. Today, our Glendale dentists are going to be reviewing popular treatments in the world of restorative dentistry.
If you need to fill in cracked teeth, or rebuild chipped away enamel, dental bonding may be able to help you reach your goals. Bonding uses composite resin to repair natural teeth. When we initially apply the resin, it is soft and malleable. Once it’s perfectly shaped, we cure the resin so that it hardens and bonds to the tooth. This entire process can be completed in just one dental appointment.
Crowns are individually crafted restorations that are applied to teeth that are damaged due to infection or physical trauma. We design the crown to mimic the shape and color of your natural tooth, and then we permanently attach the restoration to the relevant tooth. The thing that makes CEREC crowns different is that our team crafts them right here in our office. That is why CEREC crowns are often referred to as “same-day crowns.”
Tooth loss is often traumatizing for dental patients, but it doesn’t have to be that way for long. Dental implant replacement teeth are held in place with titanium screws that extend into the patient’s jawbone. Implants are as close as you can get to receiving a new natural tooth.
When you are faced with dental damage, don’t panic. Reach out to our Glendale dentists to get the information and support that you need to regain a healthy and whole smile. We are here to help you with stress free, comfortable dental care.
