Berkeley Family Dentistry
At Berkeley Family Dentistry, we provide a wide range of restorative dentistry services for the whole family! Our primary goal is to promote good oral hygiene and keep your mouth healthy.
Should you have a cavity, we use a resin tooth-colored filling to restore function and comfort to your tooth. These fillings restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state!
If your cavity is too large to restore with a tooth-colored filling, a crown may be recommended. Crowns help protect the baby teeth, providing structure for the tooth. Crowning a tooth also maintains the space, allowing the eventual permanent tooth to erupt properly. If you are concerned about a silver crown, talk to our doctors about the possibility of a tooth-colored crown!
Root canals are often needed when the cavity approaches the tooth’s nerve. This procedure stops the progress of the cavity and minimizes the chances of an infection or abscess. The procedure is completed by cleaning out the center of the tooth where the nerve lives and placing soothing medicine. The tooth is then protected by placing a crown, as mentioned above.
You may need to have a tooth extracted. Most often, extractions are indicated due to infection or for orthodontic purposes. Our doctors will review your needs and discuss treatment options with you.
Porcelain veneers are a thin tooth colored shell made of porcelain that are attached to the surface of your teeth to help correct dental issues ranging from worn enamel, uneven alignment, tooth discoloration, spacing issues or chips and cracks. Veneers can help makeover a smile while adding protective benefits to your teeth such as increased durability and improved appearance.
Whether you are missing a tooth due to damage or injury, implant crowns can be used to help fill in that void. Implant crowns differ from traditional crowns. Whereas a traditional crown is shaped to the original tooth, an implant crown is used to replace the entire tooth. An implant crown is secured by an abutment that is then attached to an abutment screw (connector) and the implant itself.
Enhance your smile with dentures & partial dentures. They are a great replacement for missing teeth and are made to resemble your natural teeth. While they are very durable they do still require the occasional repair or adjustment over the years of wear and tear.
There’s so many factors that can contribute to discoloration in teeth including diet, medication and even aging. Feel more confident in your smile with the help of our teeth whitening services. Contact us today to learn more about our whitening options.
