Keep your smile feeling and functioning at its absolute best with restorative dentistry. From simple procedures like dental fillings, to more complex solutions like dental prosthetics and root canal therapy, restorative dentistry aims to revitalize decayed or damaged teeth. With our comprehensive restorative care, you can take back your overall oral health so you can eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Cavities are one of the most common oral diseases, so it's imperative we tackle them as soon as they begin to compromise the health and wellness of your teeth. When left untreated, they can cause serious discomfort and may require more invasive procedures to alleviate. Thanks to fillings, your dentist in Burlingame can halt the progression of tooth decay in a single visit. At Nest Dental, we believe in using only the best materials, which is why we exclusively use composite, tooth-colored fillings to restore your teeth. By stopping by for your regular 6-month cleaning and checkup, you can prevent new cavities from forming in the first place.
No one likes to deal with a broken, cracked, or severely decayed tooth. It can be painful and stressful, but thanks to same-day crowns, you can restore your tooth in a single visit. This allows you to skip the temporary restoration and long wait for your permanent crown. Same-day crowns are custom-made from high-quality, durable materials and color-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. With our state-of-the-art digital imaging and CAD/CAM technology, your appointment will be over in approximately 2 hours, so you can start smiling again!
If you're dealing with cracked or damaged, dental crowns can restore your smile! Crowns are tooth-shaped "caps" that protect your tooth's natural root and revitalize the function of your bite. If you've received a root canal or dental implant, a crown can also be used to bring back the health of your tooth. Since dental crowns can be made from many materials, they are ideal for a variety of restorative and cosmetic applications, so you can smile with confidence.
Toothaches are often a sign of a serious infection and can cause serious pain. There's no need to wait in discomfort any longer thanks to root canal therapy. This common procedure can provide you with much-needed relief and restore the health of your tooth. Plus, root canals can save your tooth from an extraction so you can smile with comfort and confidence.
Extractions are always our last option — saving your smile is our number one priority. However, a problematic tooth is sometimes more trouble than it's worth. Your doctor may recommend an extraction as the best way to get your oral health back on the right path. With gentle techniques, and local anesthesia or sedation, decaying teeth can be removed to alleviate your discomfort or to make room for dental implants, a bridge, or another type of tooth replacement.
Missing a tooth? Need an extraction? The look of your smile, functionality of your bite, and overall oral health can all be restored by a dental implant. Dental implants are the most secure, long-lasting tooth replacement, and the only one that actually halts the progression of bone loss. They're one of the most secure ways to restore lost teeth, so get in touch with us today to see if implants are right for you!
There's no need to keep covering up your mouth if a missing tooth is leaving a gap in your smile. With a dental bridge, the space left behind by one, or several, missing teeth can be permanently covered. The bridge is attached to your teeth on either side of the gap, so it won't slide around when you eat or speak. Your bridge also won't stand out from the rest of your smile —it can be color-matched to blend with your other teeth. Keep your teeth from shifting and reduce the risk of bone loss and problems with your bite by asking your dentist about a bridge. Schedule a consultation today to see if a dental bridge can help you complete your smile!
