Your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist practices biomimetic dentistry. Which means we create restorations that not only improve the health and function of your smile, but also help improve the beauty of your teeth as well. With our lifelike dental restorations, we offer crowns, fillings, and more that blend seamlessly with your smile.
Biomimetic dentistry, as we touched on the paragraph above, means we use materials and procedures designed to mimic the appearance and function of natural tooth structure. Not only does this provide repair that looks natural and blends with your smile, but this also provides care that lasts for years to come and is safe for a wider range of patients. From minor cavities to severe damage, we have options to help restore your smile to a functional, balanced, and lifelike state.
Instead of using metal restorations, which could contain trace amounts of mercury and be unsafe for young, elderly, pregnant patients, we use composite resin. Free of any metal, composite resin is a strong blend of glass and acrylic that we can tint to match the color of surrounding structure. Placement only takes one visit, and helps provide long-lasting solutions for cavities.
We also use the same composite resin mentioned above in our dental bonding procedures. With dental bonding, we repair minor chips and cracks, reshape malformed teeth, and even mask permanent teeth stains. Again, the procedure takes one visit, and provides a lifelike solution to damage and common esthetic complaints.
We also have natural-looking solutions to more severe cases of tooth decay, as well as infections or serious damage. A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, providing solutions for major cosmetic and restorative issues, and even aiding in the tooth replacement process by securing bridges and completing individual dental implants. Each one is custom-made, and we have an array of lifelike materials, including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and zirconia.
For a restoration designed purely to improve smile beauty, we have veneers. A thin shell is crafted from porcelain, and placed onto the front facing side of each tooth. The restoration then instantly improves the shape and color of each tooth!
Inlays and Onlays
What if you have an issue too serous for a filling, but not quite severe enough for a full crown? We craft partial crowns, known as inlays and onlays, from ceramic!
