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 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.
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
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.
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
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
