Restorative dentistry is the process of repairing or replacing damaged, defective, severely decayed or missing teeth. Our North Hollywood restorative dentistry specialist can use a variety of techniques and treatments designed to restore a natural appearance and improve dental health. Our goal is to preserve your own natural teeth whenever possible and restore missing teeth in order to help you maintain maximum function.
Dental crowns are a common procedure in restorative dentistry. Our expert for restorative dentistry in North Hollywood can use dental crowns to cover teeth that have been weakened by damage or decay, that have had root canal treatment or that have been fractured or broken. They cover the entire crown of the tooth and are designed to closely match the color of your natural teeth. In some cases, crowns may also be used to support bridges, which replace missing teeth.
Our North Hollywood restorative dentistry expert may also use dental implants or dentures to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that integrates with the jawbone to provide a strong, lifelong restoration for a prosthetic tooth. They can be used with crowns, bridges or dentures.

Dental fillings can also be a restorative treatment. Most commonly used to treat decayed teeth, dental fillings may also be appropriate for restoring teeth that have been worn down due to tooth grinding or nail biting, teeth that have been cracked or teeth that are fractured. The area to be filled will be prepared, and our specialist for restorative dentistry in North Hollywood will remove the decayed area and, if necessary, add a special layer to protect the tooth’s nerve. Common dental fillings include tooth-colored composite resin or porcelain fillings or amalgam fillings.
