Dental Restorations available in Bankers Hill, San Diego Dental Practice

Amalgam Restorations

Dental amalgam is a safe, durable, and affordable material used to fill cavities and restore damaged teeth. Over the past few decades, more than 100 million Americans have received amalgam restorations. A combination of metals including silver, copper, tin, and mercury bind into a hard, stable substance that protects and strengthens decaying teeth.

Amalgam restorations are also known as silver fillings for the color they create on the chewing surface of treated teeth. However, since most teeth filled with amalgam restorations sit far back in the mouth, they’re rarely visible to others. Dr. Carlo has helped countless patients repair cavities and protect their ongoing oral health using this versatile, budget-friendly restoration material.

Composite Restorations

Composite restorations, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are composed of resin-based substances that create a natural, tooth-like aesthetic.

Although composite restorations are not as durable as amalgam fillings, they offer protection for small-to-midsize fillings and can be used on the front or back teeth. Many patients choose composite fillings to achieve a more natural, attractive appearance.

Inlays & Onlays

Patients with small areas of decay or minor cracks on the molars near the back of the mouth may benefit from inlays and onlays. These are more conservative than dental crowns, but repair more area than dental fillings alone.

Crowns

Crowns are small, custom-made caps placed over the top of a broken, chipped, or decayed tooth. We work closely with every patient to select the crown’s material, fabricate the crown to fit perfectly in place, and restore a natural bite and smile. Crowns help to protect vulnerable teeth and prevent additional damage from developing.

Bridges

Bridges, meanwhile, fill the space left by a missing tooth. A fake tooth called a pontic is held in place by a crown cemented to the teeth on either side. This restoration procedure works as long as strong, natural teeth remain on both sides of the gap. Dental bridges offer a simple and effective way to restore the functions of the mouth and prevent other teeth from shifting out of place.

Implant Crowns

Tooth loss is a serious dental issue affecting millions of Americans. This is why Dr. Carlo specializes in dental implant restorations. Implants are considered the Gold Standard in tooth replacement technology thanks to their durability, longevity, and natural appearance.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth that looks, feels, and functions exactly like a real tooth. The implant itself is a titanium screw inserted deep into the gum tissue, where it fuses with jawbones to replace lost tooth roots. This creates a sturdy, immovable base for the crown, which is the visible portion of the implant.

Dentures and Partials tooth replacement

Dentures and Partials

Dentures offer another tooth replacement alternative. Dr. Carlo of Bankers Hill works closely with his tooth replacement patients to evaluate the mouth’s condition and determine whether partial dentures, implant-supported dentures, or implants would be the best solution.

On the other hand, partial dentures are unique dental prosthetics designed to replace a much smaller section of not only teeth, but gums. They’re meant to fill in the gaps left by lost teeth to create a full, attractive smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are popular as a middle ground for patients who want a solution more advanced than traditional dentures without the complexity of individual implant restorations. As the name suggests, implant-supported dentures are supported by at least two implants installed in the jawbone, which makes talking, chewing, and biting much easier.
