Over time, it’s incredibly easy for teeth to become stained, no matter how good your oral hygiene is. Teeth bleaching procedures help to remove that yellow or brownish cast caused by coffee, soda, wine, and other staining drinks and foods to make your smile more youthful and aesthetically pleasing. We offer teeth bleaching in office to give you the most visible results with the least amount of time. We also have some take home bleaching methods available as well. Please ask us for more information.
A crown is a type of restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity, large filling or crack threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth. The most common crown is made from porcelain fused to metal which combines benefits from both materials- strength from metal and esthetics from porcelain. Crowns can also be made from porcelain, gold, zirconia or a combination of the materials.
A bridge is a type of restoration used to replace a missing tooth. The teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are capped and an artificial tooth is made to connect or “bridge” the two caps together. Bridges can be made to be very esthetic and functional.
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on clasping onto teeth. The dentures that clasp on to remaining teeth are considered to be partial dentures. When there are no teeth present in the jaw, they are considered to be full dentures.
A tooth extraction is a relatively straightforward dental procedure that involves completely removing the tooth from the socket and bone. It can cure or prevent a host of dental issues in the future. We offer extraction as treatment in situations where the prognosis for the tooth is poor.
At our office in Burbank, implant restoration is one of our many specialties. Dental implants are placed when a tooth is lost or extracted for both functional and aesthetic purposes over time, the implant may need repair due to damage or simple wear and tear. Our dentists both prepare the implant for repair and place restorative material(s) in order to make your smile beautiful, healthy, and functional once again.
Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of a person’s teeth, gums and/or bite. It can be as simple as smoothening some rough or chipped edges of a tooth or something more complicated like crowning or capping several teeth.
