Restorative Dentistry in La Mesa

San Diego Denture & Implant Specialists can help you with restorative dentistry to repair a chipped, cracked or decayed tooth. Unfortunately, dental problems only worsen over time and cannot heal naturally. A seemingly small cavity or fracture can increase in size and cause the treatment to be more complex. 

Crowns

A crown can return a tooth with extensive decay or damage to its natural structure, strength and function. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment and bite.

We use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, or all-porcelain crowns. To maintain a fully tooth-colored smile, we often recommend all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting.

As a Board Certified Prosthodontist, Dr. Johnson fits crowns to perfection with rave reviews by his patients about the beautiful, comfortable results he creates!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the teeth after the teeth have been minimally reduced. The porcelain veneers can correct tooth defects, misalignment, and undesirable colors of teeth. The porcelain is resistant to staining and can be cleaned like natural teeth.

Tooth Restorations

If you have decayed or broken teeth, they may be able to be repaired with tooth restorations. Tooth colored porcelain or composite material may be used to preserve or enhance esthetics. Where strength or durability is needed, a cast or mixed metal restoration may be used. 

Cosmetic Bonding

Chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect teeth need cosmetic restoration. Bonding may be suggested that can resolve problems with a single appointment. Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to more extensive and expensive restorations. With just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile!
