Types of Dental Restorations
If you live in the 92618 area schedule an appointment with our dental office to learn more about the types of restorations that are available to correct your tooth.
At Ash Dental Corp: A. Sami DDS, we don’t believe that there is a one size fits all solution, but offer customized treatment plans based on the needs of each patient individually.
This means that the restoration that works for your spouse is not necessarily the one that we will recommend for you.
Here are some of the common dental restorations that we offer:
When a tooth is missing a large portion of its enamel, a dental crown is the best type of restoration because it is a cap that completely surrounds the tooth.
This way you can bite down with full force and not worry about being uncomfortable or damaging the tooth further.
This is most frequently used after a root canal or when the tooth is severely cracked or chipped. Fortunately, they now come in all-ceramic and ceramic-on-metal in addition to the traditional all-metal material. This means that patients getting crowns for dental restorations can have natural-looking teeth after the fact.
If a tooth is only slightly damaged with a small chip or crack, a veneer can be used to restore it.
A veneer is a thin shell that is placed on top of a natural tooth and is frequently used for restorations of the front teeth.
The process of placing a veneer is similar to that of a dental crown only with less tooth preparation. If you live in Irvine, CA schedule an appointment so that we can discuss both options with you.
At Ash Dental Corp: A. Sami DDS, we use tooth-colored fillings as a way to restore teeth that have had cavities.
Once the decayed area of the tooth has been removed a filling is necessary to replace the missing enamel. Traditionally, this was done using silver amalgam but now we can complete dental restorations using materials that look natural so that when you smile, no one can tell that you had cavities.
Those who need minor dental restorations can often benefit from a simple bonding procedure. This is very popular in the 92618 area when restoring baby teeth.
Children, for example, don’t need a dental veneer on a tooth that is going to fall out in a short time. With this in mind, we can keep a baby tooth in place and ensure that it is functioning properly by restoring it using a bonding procedure.
Dr. Sami will use a tooth-colored material so that it looks completely natural.
At times, patients in Irvine need dental restorations to replace teeth. Whether a tooth has been knocked out or has fallen out due to an infection, there are several ways that it can be replaced.
In order to determine what procedure is right for you, call 949-453-9800 to schedule an appointment and consultation.
In many cases, dentures are worn temporarily while a patient decides how they want to permanently replace their tooth.
These temporary dentures are held in place by a wire that is similar to wearing a retainer. They are not meant to be worn long-term but will help you to look normal while deciding which cosmetic dentistry procedure to use.
Popular for dental restorations. Patients throughout California use a bridge to replace a tooth without undergoing surgery.
In this procedure, a dental crown is placed on the two teeth that surround the missing one. The crowns are used as anchors to hold a gum-colored bridge in place so that the new tooth is secured.
The entire bridge is created in a local dental lab and will look completely natural by blending in with the surrounding teeth.
Many of our patients in Irvine CA prefer to use dental implants instead. because an implant is by far the most durable option for replacing a missing tooth.
In this procedure, Dr. Sami implants a metal post under the gums and secures it to the jawbone. The bone and metal fuse together to create a synthetic root system that the new tooth is secured to.
With this type of dental restoration, patients can maintain an active lifestyle without worrying about the impact on their new tooth.
