Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Restorative dentistry can repair and restore the natural look of your smile. With restorative dentistry treatments, you can smile with confidence again!
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
For small cavities, tooth-colored dental fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Garate only uses mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
Our Chula Vista dentist office offers full-coverage dental crowns, made from luminous porcelain and Zirconia materials. These restorations offer beautiful aesthetic results that protect your natural tooth from further damage or decay. They’re also perfect for topping off your dental implants.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Dr. Garate is one of the only dentists in the Chula Vista area that surgically places dental implants in his own office, instead of referring you elsewhere for the surgical phase.
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jaw to take the place of your missing tooth root. Due to its biocompatible properties, the titanium fuses with your natural bone to create a strong base for your replacement crown. Your replacement tooth will be carefully crafted to look natural and fit into your smile seamlessly.
Dental Implant Restoration
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gum to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Dr. Garate right away! A dental implant can’t fix itself and if you try to treat it yourself, you could end up causing more damage to your mouth.
Have you lost an entire arch of teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth? Are you going to have your remaining teeth removed because they are too unhealthy to save? You may be able to replace them with fixed dentures, which are supported by dental implants.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
With All-on-4® dental implants, your implants are stabilized together with a prosthesis to allow you to use your teeth immediately. If you are a good candidate for this type of dental implant, you can expect to have your teeth in just one day! Everyone’s case is unique but the vast majority of the work done by Dr. Garate will be done before the implant surgery.
Fixed and Partial Dentures
For patients missing all their teeth, we offer traditional dentures to give you back the function, feel and appearance of your natural teeth. For optimal aesthetics, we also offer flexible smile replacements for partial areas of missing teeth.
At Perfect Smiles California, our dentures are custom-made for each patient. However, as your mouth changes and adjusts to dentures, they don't adjust to your mouth. This means that as time goes on your dentures may begin to feel too loose or too tight, you might experience chafing or irritation on your gums.
Our dentists are able to offer services to fix these issues and any others you experience while wearing your dentures. If your dentures no longer fit correctly, are damaged or are causing your discomfort, call our Chula Vista area office today to schedule an appointment.
