Address Tooth Loss With A Bridge

How To Maintain Healthy Gums

If you want to make sure that your smile is healthy, make sure that you look out for more than just your teeth when it comes to your oral hygiene efforts. When you brush and floss, give your gum line your attention. These tissues are vulnerable to infection when oral bacteria start to accumulate on your roots. When this happens, those microbes can cause tissue recession and damage; when your infection progresses, you can have more severe issues with damage, become vulnerable to tooth loss, and even face a higher risk for general health issues! Our Temecula, CA dentist’s office is prepared to help. In addition to providing guidance on better oral hygiene at home, we can provide in-office preventive services that help you avoid difficulties with gingivitis and more severe gum disease issues.

How Do Veneers Address Smile Flaws?

When there are flaws that negatively affect your smile, your overall comfort with your appearance can suffer. Simply put, it is hard to forget just how prominent your smile is when it comes to how you look, and how easy it is for a small problem to attract unwanted attention. Of course, this does not mean you are stuck with flaws forever, and that you have no way to discreetly improve your appearance. At our Corona, CA dentist’s office, we can use porcelain veneers to take care of problems with your appearance that make you unhappy. This approach to care uses thin restorations that cover the front surfaces of teeth, leaving the surrounding structure alone but still covering enough to make meaningful overall improvements.

Stop Bruxism From Changing Your Smile

Our teeth are protected by their remarkably strong outer layers of enamel, but problems can occur over time that wear them down and even cause noticeable damage. While friction from years of biting and chewing different foods can have an effect on the way you look, it can be hard to notice these gradual changes. However, if you have an issue with bruxism, or teeth grinding, it can be hard to avoid issues with visible wear and tear. Fortunately, this is a treatable condition. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can discuss protection in the form of a custom oral guard. We can also look at your treatment options if you want to do something about existing wear and tear. (more…)

Treatments With Partial Crowns

In order to protect a tooth after it is injured or harmed by decay, your dentist will need to provide a permanent restoration to cover the damaged area. At our Moreno Valley, CA dental office, we can recommend different restorations to respond to different degrees of trouble. For some situations, the right care can come from partial dental crowns. Both inlays and onlays are effective at tending to dental problems. They offer more coverage than we can reliably give when we place dental fillings, but they remove the need to completely cover teeth with full crowns. Because we have these options, we can provide long-term protection and stability while still protecting healthy surrounding tooth structure. (more…)

Fitting Invisalign Into Your Life

Is there something you can do about poor teeth spacing that will not create problems for your daily life? As effective as they are at fixing issues with malocclusion, metal braces can be hard for others to ignore. They can also make you uncomfortable with eating and cleaning your smile. Fortunately, there are alternative appliances that can help you resolve trouble with poor smile alignment. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we are happy to meet with you and discuss the impact that Invisalign treatment can have on your appearance and dental health. With these appliances, we can gradually straighten your teeth while only requiring you to wear removable, hard-to-see appliances. (more…)

Treatment With A Tooth-Colored Filling

How do you know when you have a cavity? You can experience problems with pain or sensitivity as decay starts to worsen, but you can have no idea that you need restorative dental work if you do not schedule regular dental exams. At these appointments, our Riverside, CA dentist’s office is able to recognize when damages to tooth structure need to be addressed. When a problem is caught in time, we can provide treatment with a dental filling that protects your tooth and provides cosmetic support as well as functional protection. Composite fillings actually bond to your enamel, adding remarkable stability. In situations where more severe cavities need to be treated, we can provide larger restorations, including full crowns, to make sure that you have the right support. (more…)
