Restorative Dentistry – Fountain Valley, CA
Revitalize Your Smile
Tooth enamel may be the strongest substance in your body, but even it can break and become worn down over time. And because it’s not made out of living cells, it cannot recover from extensive damage. At Elite Dental of Fountain Valley, we can fix and refresh your damaged or decayed teeth with a number of restorative dentistry services. Give us a call if you have a damaged smile that needs repair.

Amalgam fillings used to be the standard for restoring cavities, but they came with the obvious drawback of sticking out like a sore thumb compared to the rest of your smile. With tooth-colored fillings made out of composite resin, it’s now possible for us to create cavity fillings that blend in perfectly with your natural teeth.
Some teeth are too damaged to be repaired with a filling but are still intact enough to be saved with a dental crown. Every crown is customized to be an exact fit for the teeth that they’re placed on. Dental crowns perform multiple functions, simultaneously protecting the teeth from further damage while also letting them function normally whenever you bite or chew. Our porcelain and zirconia dental crowns can all be personalized so that they match the rest of your smile once they’re in place.
Once decay or infection has killed the nerve inside your tooth, we need to remove it as soon as possible before the damage spreads to the rest of your mouth. Root canal treatment is the process of removing the dead dental nerve and restoring the affected tooth so that you can still use it to speak, eat, and smile. Your mouth would be numbed for the entire root canal procedure to ensure little to no pain.
Tooth Extractions & Bone Grafts
It’s not always possible to save a tooth that has been severely damaged. If we deem it necessary to perform a tooth extraction, we will do so in a way that keeps your discomfort to a minimum. Note that bone loss in the jaw is often a consequence of having a tooth removed, but we can reverse the process with dental bone grafting. This keeps your jawbone healthy and strong so that it can support tooth replacement with dental implants.
