Restore Your Healthy Smile
A damaged or decayed smile can make it difficult to perform simple tasks like speaking and chewing with comfort. You may also experience painful symptoms like toothaches or sore gums. You deserve a healthy, functional smile to enjoy all life has to offer, like enjoying a meal with your family or smiling for a photo. Thankfully, the restorative dentistry services at Southern Cal smiles can help restore the functionality and appearance of your smile.
Our restorative dentist in Woodland Hills, Dr. Fredericks, offers a variety of restorative treatments to patients in Bell Canyon, Hidden Hills, Agoura Hills, and the surrounding CA areas. Read on to learn more about our treatments and how they can help complete your beautiful smile!
Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Regarded as the gold standard of restorative dentistry, dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss that can also help prevent jawbone degradation. These titanium fixtures are affixed directly to your jawbone for a secure and stable restoration. Our dentist is likely to recommend implants to patients looking for a lifelong tooth loss solution in Southern California.
Because they mimic tooth roots, you won’t have to worry about jawbone deterioration. Dr. Fredericks will top off the implant with a customized dental crown so you can enjoy a functional and beautiful smile for years to come.
Removable dentures are an ideal restorative solution for patients missing some or all of their natural teeth. We offer both partial and full dentures at our Woodland Hills office for your convenience.
- Partial Dentures: If you’re only missing a few teeth, partial dentures may be right for you. This restoration can fill in the gaps left behind by missing teeth to restore your smile’s function and appearance.
- Full Dentures: For patients missing most of their teeth, full dentures may be the best solution. These dentures form a close seal with your gums for a natural-looking and functional restoration.
Implant-supported dentures combine the benefits of traditional dentures with the unique advantages of dental implants. Also known as overdentures, these restorations are attached to dental implant posts in the jawbone to provide stability and a natural appearance.
Unlike traditional dentures, you won’t have to worry about implant-supported dentures coming loose or shifting out of place. Just as with single implant fixtures, this solution can prevent jawbone deterioration by mimicking tooth roots. The implant fixtures also eliminate the need for messy dental adhesives.
Dental crowns are customized caps placed over structurally damaged or compromised teeth to give them strength and support. Crowns can also help shield teeth against bacteria, providing coverage above the gum line.
The customizable porcelain of our crowns can be made to match the shape, size, and color of your teeth for a seamless blend with your smile. Unlike metal-based crowns, porcelain crowns offer an attractive and long-lasting solution to damaged or decayed teeth.
As their name suggests, dental bridges can bridge the gap left by missing teeth. Bridges utilize a false tooth and one or more dental crowns to restore your complete smile. This durable solution blends in naturally with your smile for a seamless appearance.
Dental bridges can replace up to four missing adjacent teeth and are a more convenient and less invasive treatment than dental implants. Best of all, bridges are made to withstand your daily activities, and they can last up to 15 years with proper care.
