Crowns and caps are used by many dentists to restore missing teeth and aesthetically enhance facial structure. At ValleyWide Dental, our dentist in Palmdale performs dental fillings, general dentistry and can restore your smile using crowns.
Once a tooth has decayed to a certain point, dental work is needed to remove the affected area and clean and seal it. This procedure is traditionally known as a root canal. After a root canal, a crown or cap is placed over the tooth to protect it if large portions of the tooth have been removed. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, or dentures, so there is the appearance of a seamless look. They can also be used to cover dental implants and over a cracked tooth. Sometimes, crowns and caps are also used over teeth that have been discolored or stained. The crown restores the look of the tooth to its natural appearance. Our dentist in Palmdale can also save your tooth with the use of a dental filling. Sometimes a root canal is not needed, in which case we can fill the hole the cavity has made with a composite material and have it back to new in just one sitting.
At ValleyWide Dental, our dentist in Palmdale uses traditional dental restoratives for dental fillings. This can include gold, amalgam, porcelain and composite material. Most popular restorative materials are ceramic and other composites. Ceramic is strong and durable, and is good for areas that are visible such as the front of the mouth. They blend in well with natural teeth and are aesthetically a good choice for a dental filling. Our general dentistry offices also offer such restorations as Invisalign, which replaces the need for traditional braces with invisible braces, periodontal services, in which we detect and treat gum disease, implants, sleep dentistry, and comprehensive dental exams. We offer a wide range of dental services to all of our patients in a comfortable and clean atmosphere. We also specialize in pediatric dental care and family dentistry, making sure your children have a fun and lighthearted atmosphere to relax in.
