Teeth can fracture, chip and wear away, due to a lot of reasons. The most common reason why patients require a restorative dentistry procedure is because of dental caries. When bacteria set in, the hard tissues become infected with disease. Sometimes a restorative procedure is required to repair minor cracks, chips and fractures on the teeth surface. They are not so noticeable but defects, just the same, so they need to be resolved. Finally, a more comprehensive teeth restorative procedure is required when a tooth is lost. Regardless of what concern you have, a restorative dentist from Smiles of La Mesa can bring back the beauty of your smile.

- Dental Fillings: The most basic issues in the field of restorative dentistry are resolved with simple fillings. They are performed by first preparing the tooth cleaning it to remove diseased tissues, and then filling it. The filling material can be applied directly into the mouth or indirectly, by fabricating it outside the mouth, in the dental laboratory. Examples of filling materials are: composite resin, ceramic, porcelain (tooth-colored) or gold and silver amalgam.
- Dental Crowns and Bridges: Crowns and Bridges are fabricated to correct defects on the teeth and to replace teeth that has been lost. It involves full crown coverage so tooth reduction is provided on all surfaces of the teeth.
- Dental Veneers and Lumineers: Dental veneers and lumineers are more cosmetic in nature. They address more superficial issues such as stains, discolorations and any shade or misalignment transformations required. Compared to crowns and bridges, the restoration is limited to the facial surface of the teeth, so this is very conservative.
- Dental Implants: Dental Implantology is a restorative dentistry procedure that incorporates both surgical and prosthetic disciplines. To replace a tooth that has been lost, a titanium impant/screw is embedded in the bone, replacing the roots and then it is installed with a functional and aesthetic crown.
