Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry can improve your smile and the way you feel about yourself. If you have been unhappy with the way you appear to the world, schedule an appointment with Dr. Katherine Toubian at Westwood Family Dental.
Broken, chipped, yellowed, crooked, or missing teeth and even root canals that have darkened over time can all be a thing of the past with Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry.
There are several ways Dr. Toubian can take care of deterioration, decay and tooth fractures. These types of cosmetic or restorative dentistry include crowns, fillings, bridges, implants, veneers, and dentures.
Crowns, otherwise known as caps, are placed over the top over your tooth in order to restore it back to its natural size, appearance, shape, and strength. Crowns can also be used to cover a root canal, a dental implant or hold your bridge into place.
Fillings are probably the most common form of restoration. Your teeth can be filled with glass materials, composite resin, tooth-colored plastic and even gold.
Bridges are designed to bridge the gap that is left when you are missing one or more teeth. Bridges are permanent false teeth that are anchored to either side with crowns, and then cemented into place.
Implants are used to replace the roots of your teeth and either surgically implanted into your jawbone or made from a metal plate that is placed just below your gum tissue. Implants are perfect for people who cannot wear dentures.
Dentures are replacements for your natural teeth and removable. Dentures are made of an acrylic resin and sometimes metal attachments. Partial dentures are used when a patient still has some of their own natural teeth. Partial dentures are kept in place by retainers with metal clasps. Full dentures are used to replace all of your natural teeth.
A smile is just a phone call away. Talk to the professionals from Westwood Family Dental if you would like more information regarding Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry.
