Also called tooth-colored fillings, dental fillings dental fillings are ideal for patients with damaged or decayed teeth. This treatment is used to restore the look and function of your natural teeth, as well as protect them from further bacteria growth.
Tooth-colored fillings contain a composite resin that won’t wear down or stain your teeth over time. The resin is customized to match the shade of your natural teeth for a seamless-looking restoration. We can also replace old silver fillings with a more durable composite filling if desired.
Not only do missing teeth impact your confidence, but it can also lead to further complications such as gum disease. Dr. Chen offers durable, natural-looking dental implants to grant you the complete smile you deserve. The procedure is virtually painless and has a 98 percent success rate, making dental implants the gold standard of restorative dentistry.
Titanium implants are directly inserted into the jawbone to ensure a permanent and strong restoration that won’t shift or become loose over time. Dr. Chen will customize the implant to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth for a seamless blend with the rest of your smile.
Dental bridges are a reliable and long-lasting solution for replacing gaps in your teeth. Dr. Chen will customize your bridges to blend in with the rest of your smile for a natural-looking appearance. Best of all, they can replace up to four teeth at a time, making this a great option for patients missing more than one tooth.
Bridges work by using two of your natural teeth as anchors for one or more dental crowns. This will not only ensure your bridge is sturdy, but it will help make for a flawless restoration. With proper care, dental bridges can last up to 10 years.
Dental crowns are a popular option for patients looking to restore broken or decayed teeth. They’re also used in various restorative treatments, such as dental bridges and implants. Crowns can help protect a tooth from bacteria and further decay, and they can last up to 15 years with proper care.
