Carmel Mountain Restorative Dentist
Get your smile back at
Carmel Mountain Ranch Dental Care
Wish you could turn back the clock and regain that youthful, healthy smile? It’s not too late! We offer a number of restorative procedures to rebuild a smile that you can be proud of.
If you’re looking to restore discolored, decayed teeth, our composite resin fillings may be the best option for you. This tooth-colored mixture is shaped to fit your natural bite and give you a stunning, youthful smile. No one will know you’ve had a cavity filled!
If you’re missing teeth due to long-term dental disease or injury, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you! Dental implants provide a fixed solution instead of having removable dentures or partials, to ensure a confident smile for years to come. The titanium implants also serve as a sturdy base to help support your remaining teeth and support a strong jaw structure.
CEREC Same Day Crowns
Getting fitted for a crown used to be a long, uncomfortable procedure. With CEREC technology, it’s a breeze! Using a 3D scanner, the doctor will take a digital image of your entire mouth – instantly creating a digital model of the crown to be created right in our office. The digital model is transferred to our in-office CEREC machine which produces a beautiful new porcelain crown. Your doctor will prep your tooth and place the crown all in one appointment. No waiting necessary!
Root Canal Therapy
Many patients dread the phrase “root canal”. But with all the modern advancements in dental technology, there’s nothing to fear. A root canal can usually be done in a single visit. And the benefits that root canal therapy has on an infected tooth are invaluable. Save your original tooth and get your smile back.
If you experience anxiety when going to the dentist, you’ve come to the right place. Our staff is fully equipped to provide safe, simple sedation dentistry to patients undergoing a variety of procedures. In addition to Nitrous Oxide, our office also offers Oral Conscious Sedation and medications to help you cope with anxiety and relax. Your trip to the dentist should be enjoyable, and we can make it happen!
Partial dentures are one of the best choices for replacing multiple missing teeth, particularly if you are on a budget. There are many different types of partial dentures, but they all use the same basic design, with a plastic and/or metal framework that supports one or more false teeth.
When worn, this framework fits perfectly into your mouth and attaches to your remaining, healthy teeth. Then, the false teeth fit into the gaps where your missing teeth used to be, restoring your smile. Partial dentures give you the freedom to eat and speak normally.
If you are missing several teeth and you do not want to have dental bridges or more invasive dental implants, partial dentures are a great option. This treatment can prevent some of the issues caused by tooth loss, such as teeth shifting and excessive wear & tear.
Beyond being very affordable and typically covered by dental insurance, partial dentures are also non-invasive, unless you need a tooth to be extracted before your denture is created. It usually only takes a few weeks to make your partial denture, so you can restore your smile quickly.
If the majority of your teeth are seriously damaged due to an issue like untreated tooth decay, severe gum disease, or an accident that has damaged or destroyed most of your teeth, we may recommend full dentures.
Full dentures consist of a plastic base which supports a full row of false teeth. The base fits perfectly over your gums and is held in place by friction. Adhesives can also be used for a stronger hold.
You are a good candidate for full dentures if most or all of your teeth have been seriously damaged. This is because all of your remaining teeth must be extracted before you can have your dentures made.
It usually only takes a few weeks to make a full set of dentures and restore your smile, and you will get a set of temporary dentures to wear as soon as your teeth have been extracted.
Implant-supported dentures are the best way to restore your smile if you are missing most of your natural teeth. They are just like full dentures, except instead of resting on your gums, they attach to a series of 4-6 dental implants. These dental implants function as artificial roots, keeping the denture in place while eating, speaking, smiling and more.
You are likely a good candidate for implant-supported dentures if you are missing most of your teeth, but your gums and jaw are in good shape and are healthy, and you are willing to invest in a long-term solution for your missing teeth.
Compared to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures have a number of great benefits. They will not slip and slide when eating, and they look and feel more natural than standard dentures. In addition, they help protect the health of your jaw, preventing bone resorption caused by tooth loss.
