Quality Restorative Dentistry For Function, Health and A Beautiful Smile!
The incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health.
Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
Should your teeth require a restorative treatment, we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment.
Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.
Reasons for restorative dentistry:
- Enhance your smile.
- Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
- Improve or correct an improper bite.
- Prevent the loss of a tooth.
- Relieve dental pain.
- Repair damaged and decayed teeth.
- Replace missing teeth.
- Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
- Restore normal eating and chewing.
Restorative dental procedures include:
Composite Fillings – A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
Dentures – Full or Partial – If you have missing teeth, dentures could be your ticket back to a beautiful smile. Dentures are natural-looking, removable teeth that are attached to an aesthetically pleasing frame. They are a great solution for those who have lost their teeth from gum disease, tooth decay, or an accident. There are two different types of dentures; full and partial. In our office, we create customized dentures for every patient, ensuring a natural and aesthetically pleasing look.
Bridges – Bridges can renew your smile by replacing gaps where teeth used to be. Depending on the gap size, bridges can be made from one or multiple crowns.
Crowns – Discolored, weak, or poorly shaped teeth are in need of a crown. Crowns can restore a tooth to its normal shape, strength, and size. These tooth-shaped “caps” can support teeth that are vulnerable to breaking or even repair fractured teeth.
Root Canal Therapy – Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
Both Dr. Tanaka and Dr. Leong want you to have the best oral health and use the latest technology and techniques as well as high quality materials to give you both good function and a beautiful smile.
You will be given care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Good oral hygiene practices, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new treatment.
