Our Santa Monica dental office provides the comprehensive dental care that patients of many ages need to stay well. This means that we offer a range of services—both preventive and restorative—in one convenient location.

Restorative dentistry treatments that are those treatments that help you avoid developing dental problems in the first place. Perhaps the most straightforward preventive treatment is the regularly schedule dental cleaning. You should be completing a professional cleaning about every six months in order to keep bacteria at bay.

If, however, you are already dealing with dental damage or infection, our dental team is able to repair your smile with restorative dentistry. Here are some examples of commonly used restorative treatments:

· Dental bonding uses dental resin to repair teeth

· Dental crowns rebuild teeth after infection or fracture

· Laser periodontal treatment battles oral bacteria to refresh oral tissues, and promote healing of gum disease

· Dental implants are stand-alone replacement teeth that can help make your smile whole again after tooth loss. You can use a single dental implant to replace one tooth, or you can rebuild your whole smile with dental implants.

Finally, our team uses cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. Teeth whitening, for example, lightens existing stains, and restores your enamel to its previous level of whiteness. Dental veneers actually cover problematic enamel with customized porcelain restorations. Veneers are used to improve the shape, straightness, and color of a patient’s smile.

So, if you are trying to get your oral health routine back on track, our dental team is here to help you meet your individual goals. Please feel free to contact our Santa Monica dentist throughout website or by calling our office. We can give you the information that you need, and help you schedule your personalized consultation with us!
