Personalized Care to Restore Your Appearance, Oral Function, and Self-Confidence
At Pure Smile Dental, preventive care is our top priority. However, even with vigilant maintenance, we know that dental problems can still arise. For this reason, Dr. Lo and her team offer a complete selection of restorative treatments. Whether you have suffered dental decay, you have a broken tooth, or you are missing several teeth, we will provide customized care to repair your smile. Our dental restorations are carefully crafted from advanced materials so they will blend in with your natural teeth.
Common Reasons for Dental Damage
There are a number of factors that can compromise your dental health. Some common causes of tooth damage include:
- Decay: Cavities are one of the most common dental concerns. When bacteria and sugars interact, they will form acids, which will eat into your tooth enamel. As the bacteria erodes more and more of your tooth, the microbes can access the deeper dental layers. Along with a cavity, you may also develop a dental infection.
- Bruxism: Bruxism, or chronic teeth grinding and clinching, can lead to tooth abrasion, cracked teeth, and related damage.
- Blunt force or other trauma: You may have broken or missing teeth due to a car accident, sports injury, or related event. Sometimes, biting down on something hard can lead to dental damage, especially if you already have weakened teeth.
Options to Restore Compromised Teeth
Whatever the cause of your oral health concerns, we offer a number of treatments to address your needs. Dr. Lo will evaluate your health, goals, and budget to determine the right procedure for you. Our tooth-colored fillings can treat moderate decay and stop the spread of bacteria. If you have a particularly large cavity, a cracked tooth, or severe abrasion, a dental crown may be the right option. Our crowns are made from several different materials, including all-porcelain and ceramic. Though less common, inlays and onlays can also be an effective way to treat molars with large cavities. Finally, if you have developed a severe dental infection, root canal therapy can save your tooth and prevent further damage.
Customized Treatment to Replace Missing Teeth
If you have lost one or more teeth, there are several options to restore your smile. Our traditional bridges and dentures are custom-made from strong, lifelike materials. Not only will they match the color of your smile, they will also have a natural translucence and sparkle. For unparalleled stability, consider dental implants. These small titanium posts will permanently support a crown, partial denture, or complete denture. Implants are also the only type of dental restoration that can prevent jawbone recession.
