At La Costa Dental Excellence, we restore decayed teeth to create smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Recent advances in techniques and materials have made the impossible not only possible, but affordable.
Drs. Stephen and Kimberly Dankworth have been restoring teeth since 1988. WE receive ongoing training to remain at the forefront of cosmetic dentistry technology.
Decay is the most common dental problem and the second most common disease in the nation (number one is the common cold). If you have one or more teeth with decay, it’s time to take care of them.
Devices such as fillings, inlays, onlays and crowns restore teeth after tooth decay. Even the most basic procedure – filling a cavity – has evolved. Dentists now use several types of new materials, including porcelain and composite resin. Each has specific strengths and aesthetic considerations. Patients who replace silver amalgam with tooth-colored fillings love getting the metal out of their smile.
Inlays and onlays are more extensive restorations. There are two types: direct or indirect. Direct inlays and onlays are made on the spot and applied in one visit. Indirect inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental lab. They usually require a second visit but the results are well worth the extra trip.
When a patient has a tooth that cannot be restored with an inlay or an onlay, a natural-looking crown is the answer. At La Costa Dental Excellence, we create crowns that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Let us show you some photos of patients who have received smile makeovers – you will not see any “Chiclet” crowns that stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, you won’t be able to tell which of our Carlsbad dental patients have crowns.
