Restorative dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that restores the health, function and appearance of teeth after dental health problems. Injuries and tooth decay can increase the need for restorative dentistry. Our Los Angeles restorative dentistry expert offers treatments that can repair teeth that are damaged due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or dental trauma.
Dental bonding is a common, easy-to-perform and highly effective restorative treatment that can be used to repair decayed areas and protect them from further damage. Dental bonding can also be used for cosmetic reasons and can conceal discolorations, worn enamel, chips and fractures. Dental veneers are used to conceal similar aesthetic problems and may also be used to repair cracked, damaged or worn teeth.
Dental veneers are more conservative when compared to porcelain crowns and require the removal of less dental enamel. However, our expert in restorative dentistry in Los Angeles may recommend porcelain crowns for those who have undergone root canal treatment, have severely damaged teeth or have teeth with severe cosmetic issues.
