Why Choose Dr. David Villarreal
Dental implant crowns are one of the most common dental restorations in Newbury Park serving the Conejo Valley. Properly placed full resin-based composite crowns encase the entire surface of a damaged tooth to restore its original size, shape, and beauty. They also protect and strengthen damaged teeth that cannot be repaired with other types of restorations such as fillings, prolonging their life.
A severely cracked tooth can cause unprovoked tooth pain, a sharp pain when chewing in a certain way, or sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks. This problem can be easily corrected with a simple crown placement or onlay.
Asymptomatic tooth cracks
It is hard to identify a crack in your tooth as it may not have any symptoms yet. But during a dental visit, your dentist should be able to notice any cracks. Whether or not you need a crown placement depends on the location and severity of the crack. Vertical cracks seldom lead to tooth breakage, but horizontal cracks and internal cracks – arising from a previously placed restoration – dramatically increase the risk of the tooth breaking off. The tooth should be strengthened with a crown.
Broken cusps from either a damaged or previously restored tooth tend to extend vertically towards the bone, leaving minimal tooth structure to support a restoration. In severe cases, the dental pulp may be exposed, requiring the need for endodontic treatment. Either way, your dentist may recommend crown lengthening to allow for future optimal gingival health.
Previously placed restorations
When a previously bonded or filled teeth gets damaged again, the remaining tooth structure gets much weaker than before. A full crown or onlay to cover the tooth cusps can help to strengthen the tooth and prevent further damage. Full crown placement is also recommended following root canal therapy to strengthen the tooth and conceal the filling material for a seamless smile.
The most common reason for crown placement today is esthetic upgrading. People want their teeth to appear “normal”, with an even color and shape, which can only be achieved with a crown or veneer placement. So crown placement can be used to promote both function and esthetic appearance.
Dr. David Villarreal does NOT surgically place dental implants he restores the implant crown AFTER an oral surgeon surgically places the implant.
In recent years, there search for cosmetic dentists in Newbury Park and serving the Conejo Valley has increased dramatically. People are increasingly realizing that investing in a bright, healthy, and dazzling smile to enhance their appearance and allow them to smile with confidence can open many doors both socially and professionally.
Thanks to advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, practitioners in Newbury Park can improve your teeth and smile using quick, painless, and cost-effective treatments. These procedures can:
Replace old, worn out dental treatmentsAll aspects of cosmetic dentistry, from simple procedures like teeth whitening to the more complex ones like replacing colored fillings with mercury-free fillings can be addressed from a biological approach.
Many practices have now switched to using filling materials that not only remove mercury from their composition, but also offer a seamless color-match with your natural teeth. The increased adoption of mercury-free fillings translates to the reduced disposal of mercury materials and ultimately a toxic-free environment.
The difference between the two dental professionals depends on their approach to addressing a specific dental problem. While a traditional dentist would propose a treatment that seeks to resolve the symptoms of the dental problem, without necessarily considering its origin or the implications of the treatment on your general health, a biological dentist aims at resolving the dental problem in its entirety, from its origin to prevention so a similar problem doesn’t arise.
Biological dentists are aware that anything that you put in your mouth has a direct or indirect impact on your entire body. They’re committed to using safe, biocompatible, and non-toxic products in your treatments. This means that they oppose the use of mercury-based, silver fillings, and even offer the safe removal of amalgam fillings to reduce exposure to the toxic mercury vapors.
Biological dentists recognize that there is a strong relationship between the mouth and the body. By taking into account that some patients may develop sensitivities to certain dental products, biological dentists perform biocompatibility testing, such as kinesiology (muscle testing) and blood test in order to determine the filling materials that won’t affect your health adversely.
While traditional dentists readily perform “drill and fill” dental procedures, biological dentists advocate for conservative, non-surgical, and minimally invasive dentistry, which seeks to address dental problems, such as gum disease, tooth decay, and even cosmetic issues without necessarily using procedures that harm healthy teeth and gum tissue.
Most biological dentists use advanced technologies such as air abrasion or “drill-less” dentistry, which helps to treat the early stages of tooth decay without and to prepare teeth for restorations; ozone therapy, which uses water and oxygen to treat gum disease and oral infections; laser therapy to sterilize root canals and treat gum disease; and CAD/CAM technology to help make precise restorations.
