Restorative Dentistry in San Jose
The goal of restorative dentistry is to help improve the health and aesthetics of your smile and preserve your natural teeth as much as possible. At Dick W. Koo, DDS, we perform many rejuvenating treatments including fillings, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures, as well as dental implant restorations. Whether you have gum disease, a broken tooth, a toothache or missing teeth, our restorative dental treatments can help you smile with confidence.
Restorative dentistry treatments allow Dr. Koo and his team to transform damaged teeth and diseased gums by utilizing state of the art technology and top-notch materials. As seasoned San Jose dentists, we work with each patient individually to discuss all available dental solutions. Some of our most common restorative dental treatments include:
Composite Fillings – Tooth-colored resin can fill cavities and repair minor tooth imperfections while maintaining a natural look. Composite fillings are very durable and can last for many years with the proper care.
Crowns – We offer crowns made of porcelain and zirconia, which are both durable and lifelike. In either case, your tooth has its structure rebuilt while looking as natural as possible.
Bridges – Bridges offer a solution for a missing tooth or several teeth. Porcelain dental bridges allow for a false tooth to be stabilized by utilizing neighboring teeth as anchors.
Full and Partial Dentures – Some patients need multiple, or all teeth replaced and choose dentures. Dentures can allow patients to eat more comfortably and restore a natural looking smile. This restoration option can improve your smile esthetically and prevent remaining teeth from shifting into gaps, as well as help maintain your overall facial structure. For added effectiveness, many patients opt to have their dentures stabilized by dental implants.
Dental Implant Restorations - Porcelain crowns can also be designed to rest on top of single dental implants, which are titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. If you have only one missing tooth, an implant-supported porcelain crown is an effective way to replace it without altering your dental structure.
