Restorative Care in Torrance California
At Alpine Village Dental, we help patients restore their mouths to their full glory by providing a wide range of restorative services. We are proud to serve the Carson, Torrance and surrounding areas with the following restorative dental care services.
Tooth Colored Fillings
In the past, dentists would fill cavities with metal fillings. These were not only unattractive, but could cause the tooth to weaken due to the amount of original tissue that had to be removed. Advances in dentistry have made modern tooth colored or composite fillings safe to use and more natural looking than their metal counterparts.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are the ideal solution for teeth that have become fractured, damaged by decay, or contain large old fillings. Full porcelain crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, and all metal crowns can help protect and strengthen the tooth structure and improve your smile. Bridges are recommended to patients who have lost a tooth.
Endodontics, or root canal treatment, is a solution for decay that has extended to the pulp or nerve inside the tooth. A cosmetic dentist can drill into the tooth, remove the infected nerve, and clean and fill the canals with bio-inert material. This procedure is done under anesthesia.
Implant dentists can provide dental implants, or artificial teeth, to replace missing teeth. These artificial teeth are anchored in the gums or jawbone to ensure a fully functional smile.
Dentures have the ability to create a healthy, natural looking set of teeth when your original teeth have deteriorated and need to be extracted. Complete dentures are used when only a few original teeth remain, while partial dentures are utilized when only a few teeth are missing. We also offer immediate dentures and over-dentures.
