What is Restorative Dentistry?
Teeth that are weak, damaged, chipped or broken can not only influence the functionality of your mouth, they can also decrease your satisfaction with your smile. At Blue Turtle Dental, we offer several procedures to restore appearance and function while maintaining your overall appearance.
At some point in their lives, most patients need some kind of restorative dentistry. At Blue Turtle Dental, our restorative care procedures allow our dentists to improve the strength and function of a patient’s teeth when damage has occurred. The earlier your dentists can treat cases of dental caries, infection, or oral trauma, the more likely they can restore the health of the patient’s teeth back to normal.
Blue Turtle Dental is located in Palo Alto, California. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yen & Dr. Hussain and find out if you are a candidate for restorative dental services in Palo Alto, CA.
What restorative procedures do you perform?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a weak or damaged tooth to provide structure and maintain appearance. Crowns cover the entire tooth above the gum line and are cemented into place. Crowns can be placed over individual teeth or incorporated as part of a dental bridge or to cover an implant.
When one or more teeth are missing, it is important to fill in the spaces in order to prevent the remaining teeth from moving and shifting. A dental bridge typically consists of porcelain crowns fused to a metal or ceramic prosthetic device that is anchored to surrounding teeth and fixed into place. Bridges maintain the overall functionality of your bite and improve the appearance of the mouth.
Typically made of strong, durable porcelain, veneers are water-thin, customized shells that are adhered to the front surface of the teeth, improving the shape, size, color or length of existing teeth.
While traditional fillings are made of metal mixtures, having a mouth full of silver can leave patients dissatisfied with their appearance. White fillings protect the tooth against further decay while also maintaining a natural look.
For patients with advanced dental concerns that require all of their teeth to be extracted, our family dentists in Palo Alto can create a customized pair of dentures that fit correctly and look natural in your mouth, allowing you to smile, talk and eat without having to worry about your teeth.
Which Restorative Dental Procedures are Right for Me?
During your consultation with our dentists, our advanced diagnostic technology and techniques will detect the health and condition of your teeth, and a treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs.
