Dental RestorationsIf you need dental restorations, visit our office for natural looking and durable restorations. We can provide you with dental bonding, dental veneers, dental crowns or dental fillings in Bakersfield to restore your teeth’s appearance and functionality. With dental restorations, a patient will be able to smile with confidence, eat favorite foods and speak clearly. Since our goal is to help patients maintain healthy teeth for a lifetime, immediately restoring the teeth is critical. Otherwise, patients run the risk of an infection or damage spreading to the point that a dental extraction becomes necessary.

Solutions for a cracked or chipped tooth

If a patient cracks, chips or damages a tooth in an accident, we have several ways to restore it. The type of dental restorations that we will recommend is based on the extent of the damage. For example, if the crack is on a front tooth, we may recommend dental bonding or veneers. If the patient has a major chip on the same tooth or a back tooth, then the patient may need dental crowns. A dental crown is a cap that surrounds the tooth and prevents anything from touching it.

Since nothing can come in direct contact with the damaged tooth, it is possible to bite down with full force and not experience any discomfort.  When it comes to dental restorations, all of these solutions can be placed in a way that looks entirely natural, making it difficult to tell that the tooth was ever damaged in the first place.

Dental fillings and cavities

We can also provide dental fillings when the restoration that a patient needs works in correlation with a cavity that is receiving treatment. While most people do not associate cavities with the need for a dental restoration, a cavity is tooth decay. When a portion of the tooth decays, we need to remove it so that the decay does not spread. However, removing the decay leaves the tooth with a portion missing. In order for the patient to bite down like normal, eat and feel comfortable, we need to be precise in restoring the tooth structure.

We use fillings to restore every detail of the tooth so that when the patient bites down, the bite is not altered in any way. By using a filling, we can help patients eat, speak and function as normal and without constant pain.

Natural Looking Dental Fillings

Dental fillings used to only be made of amalgam. While silver (amalgam) fillings were widely popular and incredibly effective they have always had one major problem: their appearance. Silver amalgam fillings stand out. Thus, if you want to look like you have never had cavities, this type of filling is not for you.

Fortunately, we have an alternative solution and can offer you natural looking tooth-colored fillings that blend in with your remaining tooth structure. You can smile with confidence and not have to worry about someone noticing your dental restorations. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call our office today at (661) 232-1109.
