Restorative dentistry is any kind of procedure that aims to restore a tooth or teeth after damage due to trauma or decay. Whether you’ve chipped a tooth, have a cavity, or have lost one or more teeth, Dr. Ghina Morad’s San Carlos office has a solution that’s right for you! Call our dentist if you want to learn more about our restorative dentistry in San Carlos, California, which includes treatments like:
Bonding is a process that reshapes a tooth using dental composite. Applied as a putty, the composite can be worked into a perfect shape and then polished to perfection. Bonding is great for closing a gap between teeth, fixing minor chips, or reshaping a tooth.
Invisible Composite Fillings
Classic fillings were made with amalgam—a mix of metals—and were a highly visible gray color. Using modern composite material—a mix of glass and plastic—Dr. Ghina Morad can place dental fillings that look just like your natural tooth!
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are used to restore damaged and missing teeth. A crown is a cap that covers a reshaped tooth to protect it from damage, while a bridge is a false tooth connected to two abutment crowns. The false tooth replaces a missing one and preserves the health of the neighboring teeth.
One of the newest technologies in restorative dentistry, the dental implant, acts just like a natural tooth! A titanium screw is placed in your jaw and acts just like the root of your natural teeth. Once healing has finished, Dr. Ghina Morad will restore your missing tooth with a natural-looking crown that will last for years to come!
