The term “restorative dentistry” applies to treatments that repair damaged teeth and restore the mouth to optimal function. These procedures often include the use of customized restorations to replace or support teeth that have suffered damage or decay. At Newport Beach Dental, our experienced dentist, Lance Alder, DDS, utilizes the most advanced techniques and technology to craft durable restorations and deliver exceptional care. By recognizing the individual needs of each patient, he is able to consistently provide top-of-the-line results in restorative dentistry.
Regarded as one of the most versatile restorations in the oral health world, dental implants are considered the gold standard for teeth replacement. Our implants are made of a high-quality titanium and designed to emulate a natural tooth in both function and appearance. In addition to improving the bite and enhancing the smile, dental implants can prevent bone loss by emulating the function of a natural tooth root, thereby regenerating the jawbone.
As the medical term for the treatment and study of dental pulp, the most common example of endodontics is a root canal, which serves to remove infected tissue and alleviate severe pain associated with a tooth infection. Dr. Alder has performed a number of root canals throughout his career and always does his best to create an experience that’s as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
At Newport Beach Dental, our dental crowns and bridges can provide protection for damaged or compromised teeth. After taking a digital impression of your mouth, we custom-craft our crowns and bridges to match seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. These restorations, particularly crowns, are often incorporated into other restorative procedures, such as implant dentistry.
Cavities are a widespread oral health concern throughout the United States. While metal amalgam fillings were once the standard treatment for cavities, tooth-colored fillings have largely replaced them as the most sought-after filling available. They generally hold a number of advantages over their metal counterparts, not limited to a more aesthetically-pleasing and natural look among surrounding teeth.
