Our Restorative Dentistry Services
Dental bridges are fixed, non-removable appliances that effectively restore missing teeth by bridging the gap between them. These prosthetic devices not only enhance the appearance of the patient’s smile but also restore its functionality. With Dr. Villalobos’ expertise, dental bridges are meticulously customized to match the patient’s natural teeth in terms of shape, size, and color.
Composed of pontics, or prosthetic teeth, these custom restorations seamlessly blend with the surrounding smile. By improving chewing and speaking abilities, dental bridges not only enhance oral function but also prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting out of position. When properly cared for, these stable restorations can last for many years, providing a long-term solution for missing teeth.
Dental crowns are versatile restorative devices used to protect and restore damaged or weakened teeth. Dr. Villalobos expertly places crowns to address issues like decay, cracks, or large fillings, ensuring strength, function, and natural appearance. Crafted from materials like porcelain or metal alloys, these customized crowns offer long-lasting results and improved oral health. Say goodbye to damaged teeth in one appointment with Dr. Villalobos’ dental crowns.
Dentures are an affordable solution for tooth loss, providing a new smile that restores confidence in eating and speaking. Dr. Villalobos crafts customized dentures, whether partial or complete, for optimal functionality and aesthetics. Made from durable acrylic resin, these comfortable dentures achieve a complete smile with a minimally invasive procedure. In some cases, implant-supported dentures offer enhanced stability and comfort. Experience Dr. Villalobos’ comprehensive oral rehabilitation and regain your confident smile!
Dental implants are permanent restorations that replace missing teeth from root to crown, offering a natural-looking solution. With Dr. Villalobos’ expertise, patients regain their smiles and oral functionality. Titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants integrate with the bone, custom-made crowns are attached, providing a strong, durable, and aesthetically pleasing replacement tooth.
Dental implants provide a radiant smile that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth. Dr. Villalobos ensures precision and care in dental implant treatments, delivering long-lasting results for improved oral health and confidence. Discover your confident smile again with Dr. Villalobos’ customized dental implants.
Frequently Asked Questions
The duration of your dental restoration will depend on your individual needs and the treatment you choose. For example, a dental filling takes one appointment, whereas dental implants require multiple appointments. For your convenience, your dentist will always provide you with a detailed breakdown of your treatment, including the time it takes to complete.
Dentists take measures to ensure patients are comfortable during the procedures. Local anesthesia is commonly used to numb the treatment area, minimizing discomfort. After the procedure, some patients may experience mild soreness or sensitivity, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Over time, dental restorations may require replacement due to wear and tear or changes in oral health. It’s recommended to consult with a dentist who can assess the condition of existing restorations and provide recommendations for replacement if necessary.
Most insurance providers will cover at least a portion of your restorative treatment expenses. The cost of your restoration will vary depending on your specific needs and the details of your custom treatment plan. The dentist and dental team will work with you to ensure that you maximize your benefits and pay fewer out-of-pocket costs.
