At Pine Desert Dental, we offer restorative dentistry services to patients who need a permanent solution for missing or damaged teeth. Dr. Zach Sunitsch and the Pine Desert Dental team can handle all your restorative dentistry needs.
These services include dental crowns, bridges, fillings, implants, and tooth bonding. Restorative dentistry aims to return functionality to your damaged teeth while also focusing on aesthetics.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a worn-out or broken tooth. Its objective is to protect and restore the tooth’s shape, size, and strength. The dental crown cements into place and guards the visible area up to the gum line.
This treatment focuses on avoiding further clinical complications and improving the patient's smile. Dental crowns usually last between five to 15 years, depending on how your teeth wear and your oral hygiene.
Dental crowns are the usual alternative when dental decay has advanced, and fillings do not solve the problem. A lack of regular check-ups and poor hygiene usually causes teeth deterioration.
A dental bridge restores the look and function of your teeth when multiple teeth are missing, including visible teeth in the front of your mouth. As the name states, it “bridges” the gap where your teeth are missing and replaces them with artificial teeth.
This treatment intends to recover biting and chewing capacities while rebuilding the patient’s smile. Dental bridges are usually made of porcelain or metal and aim to match the natural color of the teeth.
Dental fillings are a procedure used to restore and repair teeth commonly damaged by cavities. Dental fillings are the most common treatment for teeth damaged by decay and are usually a quick and painless procedure.
After the decayed tissue is removed, the area is cleaned up, and the gap is filled. Different types of materials may be used for this purpose.
Fillings can also be used to treat broken, cracked, or worn-out teeth caused by other conditions, such as biting your nails.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of a metal screw-like device that replaces damaged or missing teeth. They are fixed into your jawbone through surgery and are a permanent solution for dental gaps.
Compared to other teeth replacement procedures, implants offer a permanent solution. Some of the benefits of this dental procedure include the following:
- Stimulating bone growth
- Returning the ability to chew and eat
- A stable and long-term solution for teeth replacement
- Returning to regular activities (laughing, smiling, and talking) with confidence
Dental bonding is a cosmetic and restorative procedure to recover natural tooth shape and enhance the patient’s smile. Tooth-colored resin is placed and molded onto the damaged tooth and then cured with a special hardening light. People with chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth are ideal candidates for this procedure.
If you are looking for an option to enhance your smile or make general dental repairs, you might be a suitable candidate for tooth bonding. This procedure can be used to:
- Repair chipped teeth
- Close dental gaps
- Repair tooth discoloration
- Change the shape of your teeth
