Dental Restorations Options

At Vatan Dental Group, we are passionate about oral health and committed to ensuring that our patients receive the best possible dental care. We focus on education and prevention so you do not have to suffer from a toothache or the inconvenience of a loose or damaged tooth. However, there are times where a tooth does become damaged or infected and a dental restoration becomes necessary. If your tooth ever falls out, as a result, we can replace your missing tooth using dental implants, dentures, or a dental bridge. In our Los Angeles general dentist office, we have many ways to restore the functionality and appearance of your smile and will make a personalized recommendation after examining you.

Call us at the first sign of trouble.

In our 90045 dental office, we can prevent tooth loss. If you have a toothache, cannot bite down without cringing, see that your gums are receding, or damage a tooth in an accident, call (310) 906-1300 to schedule an appointment. If you visit our general dentist office immediately, we can look at restorative options that will correct the damage or remove the infection so your natural tooth can remain in place. These restorative options include dental bonding, dental veneers, and dental crowns. All three can be used to close cracks and repair chips, but which one is right for you will depend on your particular situation and oral health.

If your tooth does fall out, it is important that you work with an experienced implant dentist. This will give you the most options for how to replace your missing tooth or teeth. As an implant dentist, we can place dental implants under your gums and secure them to your jawbone. These implants are made of titanium, a material the body treats like organic matter. As a result of osseointegration, you will end up with a perfectly durable new root system that a dental crown (new tooth) can be secured to. This option will look and function most like your natural tooth did.

However, we understand that some of our patients are not inclined toward oral surgery. As a Los Angeles, CA bridges dentist, we can provide you with a secure way to replace teeth that uses your healthy teeth as an anchor to stay in place. This solution is the dental bridge. With a bridge, crowns are placed on the teeth surrounding the missing ones. This way, your new teeth are firmly secured in place without surgery.

If you would like to speak with Dr. Vatan about a faster solution, he can also provide you with removable dentures. You can even wear them temporarily while trying to decide if you want dental implants or a dental bridge.

When you visit our 90045 general dentist office, you will have a variety of options to choose from, including dental implants, dentures, or a dental bridge. As an implant dentist and bridges dentist, we can walk you through the pros and cons of each, helping you to make an informed decision that you will be comfortable living with.

To learn more about our dental restoration options, call Vatan Dental Group at (310) 906-1300.
