Restorative dentistry for repairing the smile
Dr. Brian Gradinger is a dedicated professional in Valencia, California, working with patients to help them improve their smiles. Even after a smile is brought back to health after cavities or disease, it may need restorative dentistry to fix. Restorative procedures are dental treatments aimed at restoring the smile’s beauty, health, and function after problems such as tooth decay and periodontal infections.
Standard restorative dentistry solutions available at our practice
- Dental crowns (caps) – our team offers dental crowns, or caps, to place over compromised teeth that need extra protection and strength. Crowns can be used to avoid extracting teeth that might otherwise be damaged beyond repair. These restorations may also be used over dental implants to replace a single tooth or fused to false teeth called pontics to create dental bridges.
- Dental implants – implants are titanium posts used by dentists to replace one or more missing teeth. They are placed into the bone of the jaw, which provides a proper foundation for restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implants can last many decades with proper care, making them a reliable investment for patients with tooth loss.
- Dentures – full and partial dentures are ways for patients to replace one or more teeth economically. Partial dentures snap into place, sliding false teeth where needed, while full dentures replace the entire arch of teeth with a high-quality appliance with false teeth and gums.
- Fixed dental bridges – one or more teeth lost in a row may benefit from a fixed dental bridge if adjacent teeth are available for support. With proper care, these restorations will last many years and do not need to be removed as partial dentures do. That makes them an amazing option for patients wanting a more permanent restoration after tooth loss.
