Dental Fillings

Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can help revive your smile if you are struggling with cracked or broken teeth. These tooth-shaped caps serve as a protective layer for the natural root of your tooth while enhancing your bite's functionality. If you have undergone a root canal or dental implant procedure, a crown can also improve the health of your tooth. With the option to choose from a range of materials, crowns are suitable for both restorative and cosmetic purposes, allowing you to smile with ease and confidence.

Dental Bridges

There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your dentist about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!

Root Canal Therapy

Toothaches are often a sign of a serious infection and can cause serious pain. There's no need to wait in discomfort any longer thanks to root canal therapy. This common procedure can provide you with much-needed relief and restore the health of your tooth. Plus, root canals can save your tooth from an extraction so you can smile with comfort and confidence.

Tooth Extractions

Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.


Dentures are a removable, affordable solution that can complete your smile after missing one or all of your natural teeth. To ensure a natural look and feel, most dentures are made of a combination of acrylic and metal and are custom-crafted for a comfortable fit. Looking to see if dentures are right for you? Schedule a consultation to find out if a set of full or partial dentures can restore your bite. It's about time you got back to living your life with a smile.

How Does A Dental Bridge Work?

A dental bridge in Cerritos is a restorative dentistry solution used to replace one or more missing teeth. As the name suggests, it "bridges" the gap created by missing teeth. A typical bridge consists of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (known as abutment teeth) and a false tooth or teeth in between (known as pontics).

The process of getting a dental bridge involves several steps. First, the abutment teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them. Next, impressions of the teeth are made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontic(s), and crowns will be made by a dental lab. While the bridge is being created, you'll wear a temporary bridge to protect the exposed teeth and gums.

Once the dental bridge is ready, the temporary bridge is removed, and the new bridge is adjusted as necessary to achieve a proper fit. The bridge is then cemented into place, restoring the function and appearance of your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns And How Do They Work?

Dental crowns, also known as "caps," are custom-made restorations that cover the entire visible part of a tooth. They are used when a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling won't suffice. Crowns can restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of the tooth, effectively encapsulating the damaged tooth to protect it from further harm.

The process of getting a crown typically involves two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist prepares the tooth by removing the decayed or damaged areas and reshaping the tooth to accommodate the crown. An impression of the tooth is then taken and sent to a dental lab, where the crown is fabricated. During the second visit, the custom-made crown is cemented onto the prepared tooth.

How Do I Know If I Need A Dental Filling?

Identifying the need for a dental filling is not always straightforward, especially in the early stages of tooth decay. You may not experience any symptoms until the decay has progressed significantly. However, some common signs that you may need a dental filling include tooth sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks, a persistent toothache, visible holes or pits in your teeth, and pain when biting down.

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for early detection and treatment of tooth decay. Your dentist will use various diagnostic tools, like dental x-rays and intraoral cameras, to detect cavities that aren't visible to the naked eye. If a cavity is found, a dental filling is typically the first line of treatment to restore the tooth's health and prevent further decay.

What Is Restorative Dentistry?

Restorative Dentistry is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on restoring the health and function of your teeth and gums. It encompasses a wide range of dental treatments designed to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth. This could involve anything from simple dental fillings to more complex procedures like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Restorative dentistry aims to alleviate dental pain, improve oral health, and enhance the appearance of your smile. It's not solely about aesthetics; it's about restoring your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Whether it's a decayed, broken, or missing tooth, restorative dentistry in Cerritos provides solutions to help you regain a healthy, functional smile.
