Restore My Smile (Restorative Dentistry)
Don't Suffer With Hurting Teeth
There is no need to suffer with a damaged tooth. If your tooth is broken, chipped, or fractured, see Dental Health of San Francisco as soon as possible. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further or become infected, possibly causing you to end up losing the tooth. Our skilled doctors can repair your tooth using a variety of methods that will cater to your needs.
If you have any questions about how you can have a healthy, attractive smile like many of our other patients, please contact us today.
You can think of a dental inlay or onlay as being midway between a filling and a crown. Inlays or onlays are used when not enough tooth structure remains to support a filling, but the tooth is not so severely damaged that it needs a crown.
Metal fillings are virtually a thing of the past and at Dental Health of San Francisco we have the technology to replace any unattractive metal fillings with natural looking tooth-colored fillings making them almost invisible to the naked eye. These composite fillings are structurally bonded to your teeth making them much less likely to fall out which was a regular problem with silver/amalgam fillings.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually lead to the destruction of the support of your natural teeth. These diseases effect more than 80% of Americans by the age of 45.
Tooth scaling removes plaque, tartar and hard crusty calculus deposits, which are loaded with bacteria. After scaling the tooth roots may need to be planed to smooth the root surface so the soft tissue will re-attach itself to a smooth tooth surface.
A root canal may be needed if the decay has reached the tooth's nerve. Essentially, a root canal involves cleaning out a tooth's infected root, then filling and sealing the canal.
A crown is sometimes termed a "cap" or "jacket." A crown will restore a large filling or a cracked tooth to its original size, shape and tooth color. A crown may be recommended after root canal therapy has been completed, as the tooth tends to become brittle and is more likely to fracture. A crown can strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and improves the appearance of your teeth.
