Lancaster CA dentist
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, dentures are a great solution. At our dental practice, ValleyWide Dental, our Lancaster CA dentist can provide you with beautiful well-fitting dentures; just one of our top-notch dentists is Dr. Robert Haze.
There are several different types of dentures including a removable bridge. A removable bridge is a removable replacement for some missing teeth and adjacent tissues. There are complete dentures which will replace all the teeth, or partial dentures which will fill in the spaces left by missing teeth. Partial dentures are very important since they will keep adjacent teeth from moving into the gaps left by the missing teeth; this will cause additional dental problems. Whatever type of denture you get, you can be sure that our Lancaster CA dentist will make sure that your new dentures are comfortable, attractive, well-fitting and fully-functional in your mouth. When you first get home with your new dentures you may be surprised to discover that they feel a bit awkward in your mouth. This is to be expected and is certainly not any cause for alarm. This is a very common occurrence sense wearing dentures is a big adjustment. Over a short amount of time, your mouth will become used to the new dentures and they will begin to feel perfectly comfortable. Before you leave our office our dentist and office staff will make sure that you know the proper way to maintain and care for your dentures. You will want to make sure that you do not drop your dentures when you remove them from your mouth as this can damage them. You may want to make sure that you remove them over the sink with a towel covering the sink to protect the dentures just in case they are dropped. Our dentist will also let you know how to soak your dentures when they are out of your mouth; it is important that they are kept moist to avoid any damage.

Dentist in 93550
As a general dental practice the doctors at our ValleyWide Dental are committed to preserving, protecting and enhancing the complete oral health of our patients. Our dentist in 93550 treats all the members of our client families from the very young just getting their first primary teeth to the special dental needs of seniors.
Our dentist in 93550 is often called upon to restore a patient’s teeth that have become subject to decay, injury, gum disease or another dental condition. The most common condition that our doctors treat is restoring a tooth that has fallen victim to decay. Our doctor removes the areas of decay and the bacteria by drilling it out, leaving a whole in the tooth – the cavity. Our doctor fills the hole using a metal amalgam, which is a mixture of several different metals including tin, copper, mercury, silver and others. Amalgams have been in use to fill cavities for well over 100 years and been proven to be safe and highly effective. However, some patients don’t feel comfortable with the presence of mercury and don’t care for the metallic shadow that often shows through a tooth filled with amalgam. For these patients our practice offers composite fillings, which is a mixture of glass or ceramic in a resin material. These composites are tooth-colored so there is no shadow or discoloration. They are reliable and strong but used mostly for fillings on front teeth and in areas where the chewing pressure is not too great
If the decay is too great and the restoration is extensive our dentist in 93550 will place a ceramic crown on the tooth to protect it from becoming susceptible to new decay and to form a new chewing surface. The terms crowns and caps are synonymous and the crown is made of either porcelain on a metal frame or pure porcelain. Crowns are also used whenever a root canal procedure has been performed on a tooth, or as the upper part of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, and to form the sidepieces in a fixed bridge.

If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, but the thought of having to wear braces is embarrassing to you, we have a great solution. We are happy to let you know that at our dental practice, ValleyWide Dental, we offer treatment with Invisalign invisible braces. Invisalign is a very popular treatment orthodontic option for our patients because it means they can have orthodontic work performed in a totally discreet manner. If you would like to learn if you are a good candidate for treatment with Palmdale Invisalign, you will want to come to our practice to meet with one of our fine dentists.
Unfortunately, not all smile problems can be corrected using Invisalign. But after meeting with our dentist at ValleyWide Dental, you will know whether or not your malocclusion can be corrected with Invisalign. Our expert dentists are: Dr. Robert Haze; Dr. Payam Tabankia; Dr. Rosette Aba; and Dr. L. Gerald Koven. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for Palmdale Invisalign, you will be able to get your own set of personalized clear aligners that are designed to correct your individual smile problem. These aligners are created using 3-D CAD/CAM computer technology. Your set of clear plastic aligners will contain anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners depending on the type of correction that your smile needs. The aligners are worn two weeks each, sequentially, until the final aligner is worn. At this point, you will have your beautiful new smile!
Treatment with Palmdale Invisalign is so popular because the plastic aligners are virtually invisible to others while they are being worn. This means that you can attend work and social gatherings without any fear of being embarrassed by the fact that you are having your teeth straightened. In addition, you will always look great! You will also be able to eat anything you want during the treatment time since the aligners are removed during meals. You will also be able to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth, so your teeth will be able to remain healthy through the entire procedure. Treatment with the clear plastic aligners takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces. If you would like to learn if Invisalign is a great treatment option for you, contact us today for a consultation.

Teeth whitening is used to remove discoloration from the teeth which sometimes shows up as brown and yellow staining. Teeth bleaching is a chemical process that will actually lighten the color of our patients’ teeth. This procedure can be performed in the dentist’s office or at home. When patients choose to use the at-home method our dentist will supply them with a custom-made tray that will be used by the patient during the process. This custom tray is critical as it ensures that just the right amount of teeth bleaching solution is used around the patient’s teeth. It also ensures that the patient’s teeth are properly exposed to the whitening solution and that the treatment is even across all teeth. The custom-made tray provides a much better fit than the trays that are often found in over-the-counter teeth bleaching or teeth whitening kits. At our office our dentist will provide our patient with all the materials and instructions necessary for successful at-home teeth whitening. All of your questions will be answered regarding the process, and when you leave our office you will have a thorough understanding of how to proceed.
