Restorative Dentistry

Do you have missing, decayed, or damaged teeth that impact your ability to eat and speak properly?

Restorative dentistry treatments can restore the health, function, and appearance of your smile.  

The dentists at Perfect Smiles California in Chula Vista, CA, can craft a treatment plan to give you a beautiful and functional smile again.

Restorative vs. Cosmetic Dentistry Understanding the Difference

Restorative Dentistry 

Restorative dentistry focuses on improving your oral health and function by repairing damaged teeth, eliminating decay, treating gum disease, and more. Though restorative practices may improve the aesthetics of your smile, aesthetics aren't the end goal of restorative treatment. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

The focus of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of your smile with treatments like teeth whitening and veneers. Some cosmetic procedures may also have restorative benefits, but your smile must be in a state of good health before you can pursue cosmetic work for its own sake.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry

Restored Function

Oral health issues can impact your ability to eat and speak properly. Restorative treatment can allow you to eat and speak normally once again. If you have missing teeth, our dentists can place dental implants, which prevent jawbone degeneration and support lifelike restorations.

Improved Oral Health

Tooth decay can lead to further problems, such as gum disease and infection, and missing teeth can lead to bone atrophy and further tooth loss. Restorative dentistry can fix these issues and prevent additional issues from developing. 

Boosted Self-Confidence

Having an issue with your smile can feel embarrassing. However, restorative dentistry treatments don't just restore function—they can also improve your appearance, allowing you to smile with confidence.

Restorative Dentistry Treatments

Everyone has unique dental health needs. At Perfect Smiles California, Drs. David Garate and Myriam Falcon can craft a custom treatment plan using state-of-the-art technology to restore your oral function and appearance once more. Your treatment plan may include: 

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent restorative treatment option to repair a tooth after treatment for decay. Our dentistry practice uses mercury-free fillings, which are biocompatible and look natural in your mouth. A filling can restore natural tooth structure and help defend the tooth against further decay.

Dental Crowns

When a tooth is decayed or damaged past the point of repair with an inlay, onlay, or filling, a dental crown is often the best treatment to restore it. Dental crowns are caps that cover teeth to enhance function and appearance. They can be made of porcelain or zirconia, materials that can be color-matched with your natural teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. They support lifelike crowns, bridges, or dentures that restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably. Implants are the only restorative dentistry option that can prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs when teeth are missing. 

More Information on Dental Implants


Dentures replace most or all of the teeth along a dental arch. Traditional dentures rely on denture adhesives, but implant-supported dentures attach directly to the jawbone for superior stability. At our dentistry practice, we offer traditional, implant-supported, and All-on-4® dentures.

Learn How Dentures Can Help You Smile Again

All-on-4 Dental Implants

While it traditionally takes six to eight implants to support a full-arch denture, the All-on-4 technique uses just four. This often eliminates the need for a preparatory bone graft, which restores lost jawbone tissue after tooth loss. All-on-4 allows you to restore your smile with a temporary denture on the same day as your implant placement surgery, potentially eliminating months from your treatment timeline. 

Ask Us About the Benefits of All-on-4 Dentures

If your concerns mainly have to do with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry treatments may be a better option for you. Our dentists offer multiple cosmetic dentistry options, such as veneers, dental bonding, and teeth whitening, at our Chula Vista, CA, office. 

A Closer Look at All-on-4

All-on-4 is a restorative treatment option that can support a full-arch denture with just four dental implants, allowing patients to leave surgery with a provisional set of dentures.

Insurance and Financing For Restorative Dental Care

Most insurance plans will help cover this form of dentistry. However, we still have a range of options for patients who are uninsured or need help covering out-of-pocket costs. Our practice accepts financing through CareCredit®, Wells Fargo, LendingClub®, and Sunbit. These lenders offer loans with flexible repayment periods that can make your life-changing treatment work for your budget.
