What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Understanding the Basics

Restorative dentistry is the process of restoring teeth that have been damaged by decay, gum disease, injury, or teeth grinding. Tooth damage or loss is detrimental to your oral health and can affect your ability to live your day-to-day life. Oral issues can prevent you from eating your favorite foods, smiling with ease, and speaking with confidence. Restorative care in Mountain View from Peninsula Dental Excellence can help address these issues and give you a proud, healthy smile.

Treat Cavities

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Fillings are usually the best way to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay. The damaged enamel and tooth structure will be drilled away and replaced with a composite, tooth-colored filling material. At our office, we exclusively use tooth-colored fillings rather than metal amalgam fillings. Tooth-colored fillings offer superior cosmetic results because they can be perfectly matched to the color of your surrounding teeth. If you think you may have a cavity and need a filling, contact us right away. The sooner you get treatment, the better your results will be.

Protect Your Teeth

Lab-Made Crowns

Dental crowns are usually the best option to protect and restore severely damaged teeth. Unlike fillings, they are designed to completely cover up and replace the natural enamel of your tooth. During treatment, your tooth will be prepared to provide a sturdy base, then a crown will be built and bonded to it permanently, covering up your entire tooth all the way down to the gum line.

We offer durable, natural-looking lab-made crowns. Our doctors work closely with the best dental labs in Mountain View to build strong porcelain custom crowns that will stand the test of time and allow you to keep smiling brilliantly for years to come.

Smiles in a Day

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

Lab-made crowns are a great option for restoring your smile, but the process can take 2-3 weeks. In contrast, CEREC crowns are built and placed in just a single 2-hour appointment at Peninsula Dental Excellence. The CEREC process utilizes a special 3D scanner and CAD/CAM (Computer-Assisted Design/Manufacturing) unit to plan and build your custom crown. After images and scans are taken of your mouth, they will be used to create your dental crown right here in our office.

With CEREC crowns, you can avoid the wait and the discomfort of wearing a temporary crown.  If you need dental work but are on a tight schedule, a CEREC crown from Peninsula Dental Excellence may be right for you. Call today to schedule an appointment!
