Restorative Crowns, Bridges and FillingsWhen problems like tooth decay or fractures come up, addressing them right away is the best way to avoid unwanted pain or more expensive treatment later on. Our Menlo Park dentist strives to provide his patients with the information that they need to keep their teeth healthy. But even with the best care, things can happen. That’s why we offer a variety of restorative procedures to get your smile back on track.
Dental ImplantsWhether you need to replace a single tooth at the front of your smile or all of them at once, implants offer one of the most predictable forms of smile restoration in modern dentistry. The artificial tooth roots can last for the rest of your life. They can be used to support a single crown, bridge, or even an All-on-4 denture.
White FillingsComposite fillings are less invasive than traditional amalgam restorations. Not only do they match the shade of the surrounding tooth structure, the material also bonds directly with the tooth. This allows us to remove less tooth structure around the cavity, so your natural tooth is better preserved. Dr. Hoffman is happy to change out old silver fillings upon request. Do you need to have a cavity filled? Tooth decay symptoms can include:
- Pain or sensitivity
- Surfaces that feel sharp or rough to your tongue
- Food getting stuck in specific areas of your mouth
- Tooth discoloration
