San Diego Dental Restorations at Fine Dentistry
If you have undergone dental work that hasn’t lasted as well as you’d hoped or doesn’t look the way you’d imagined it would when you began treatment planning, the restorative dental treatments offered by Drs. Sabine Purps at Fine Dentistry of San Diego can help give your back your healthy and beautiful smile.
What Is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is a branch of dentistry concerned with replacing dental work or prosthetics that are showing wear and tear or not functioning properly. In addition, dental restorations can be used to repair or replace teeth that are damaged, or failing. Any treatment that helps to restore the appearance or proper functioning of the mouth can be thought of as a type of dental restoration.
What Types of Restorations Are Available at Fine Dentistry?
At Fine Dentistry, Dr. Purps offers many types of dental restoration services in San Diego, including:
• Composite (or white) fillings
• Crowns to replace broken or failing crowns or that cover damaged teeth
• Dentures and partial dentures to replace missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted
• Fixed bridges to permanently take the place of missing teeth or teeth that need to be extracted
• Restorations on implants to restore single or multiple missing teeth
At Fine Dentistry, we don’t just focus on the problem before us when you come to us for a dental restoration. Drs. Purps works with you to determine why the problem occurred. Was there a barrier to proper brushing and flossing that resulted in an issue? Was the appliance chosen for your initial treatment not the ideal one for your needs? Did gum disease or an improper bite cause dental work to fail? These are some of the questions that we will seek to answer with our comprehensive examinations.
By investigating the underlying cause of a problem, we can not only perform the dental restoration but also help you to avoid having to go through additional restorations in the future. The ultimate goal of our treatments isn’t to fix the problem and send you on your way; Dr. Purps develops a plan to help you overcome the challenges to good dental health that have caused the problems in the first place to ensure the best results. Our top priority is to give the story that your mouth has to tell a happy, healthy ending.
