Do you desire better teeth?
Do you have cracked, chipped, worn down, or missing teeth? Thanks to advances
in cosmetic dentistry, there are solutions available that can help all
of these dental problems! While Dr. John M. Harris opened the world's
first dental school in Bainbridge, Ohio in 1828, early civilizations have
yielded evidence of dentistry as far back as 7000 BC. However, it wasn't
until the last few decades that we have seen amazing advances in
cosmetic dentistry and
dental implants in San Diego.
Today's tooth restorations allow the world's finest cosmetic dentists
to replace or restore missing teeth or missing pieces of the tooth's
structure. A tooth can sustain damage due to decay,
gum disease, deterioration of earlier restorations, or fractured teeth. No matter
the underlying cause, damaged and decaying teeth can undergo dramatic
improvements with restorations to the point where a patient's teeth
are restored so beautifully, that they can even look better than ever before!
Examples of restorations include:
Fillings – While teeth can be filled with gold and amalgam, we prefer to
use tooth-colored plastic and glass materials called composite resin filling.
– These are tooth-shaped "caps" that are placed over a
tooth to restore its natural shape, size, strength and appearance.
– Bridges are false teeth that are used to "bridge the gap"
created by one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be anchored by crowns
or cemented permanently in place.
Dental Implants – Dental implants actually replace tooth roots. Implants are small
posts that are made out of metal that is placed into the bone socket where
teeth are missing. Once inserted, the implant is covered with a crown
(a replacement tooth).
Dentures – These are removable replacements for missing teeth. They are made
out of acrylic resin and are sometimes combined with metal attachments.
Dentures can replace all of a patient's teeth, or partial dentures
can be used where some natural teeth still remain.
