Common Options for Restoring Damaged Teeth

Common Options for Restoring Damaged TeethYour teeth can become damaged over time as a result of excessive decay or a physical injury. Teeth can become chipped, cracked, or knocked out completely, and although this is less than desirable, our Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist offers various options to restore your teeth. After our dentist examines your oral health and figures out the extent of the damage, the best restoration for your needs will be suggested.

One of the most common restorations is a dental filling. Fillings are used to fill in areas of a tooth that have been worn away by a cavity. If a tooth has suffered immense decay, a dental crown may need to be placed over it in order to restore its natural shape and function. Crowns can also be used to hold a dental bridge in place.

Dental implants are sometimes recommended by our expert in restorative dentistry in Beverly Hills in order to serve as an artificial tooth root. In the event of a missing tooth, the jaw bone may begin to deteriorate and the surrounding teeth may shift out of position in order to compensate for the additional space. An implant will prevent these events from occurring at all.
