Metal-Free Restorations Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges
At Brite Dental, we want to provide our patients with the best treatment possible when it comes to their dentistry. Health, comfort, function, and beauty all play a part in how you feel about your smile.
Because we want to give you the same care and consideration we would provide to our own families and friends, we offer metal-free restorations in our Campbell, CA dental office. By avoiding metal use, we protect the beauty of your teeth and smile, in addition to providing quality, durability, and comfort.
Decay occurs when the bacteria in your mouth create an acidic environment that eats away at your protective enamel. Enamel, the hardest substance in your body, completely covers your tooth and provides a strong chewing surface.
The presence of bacteria alters the pH of your mouth, softening your enamel and potentially creating a pathway to the interior of your tooth that houses your nerve. This can lead to pain, tooth loss, or the need for a root canal if left untreated.
Digital dental x-rays, combined with a comprehensive oral evaluation, are the best way to detect decay in its earliest stages. That is why regular exams are so important! When Dr. Steve Chu diagnoses decay, we offer tooth-colored fillings to protect and restore your tooth.
Tooth-colored fillings are strong and attractive. They come in a wide variety of shades to match your natural tooth color so that no one knows you have a filling!
Porcelain Crowns and Bridges
When your tooth has deep decay or sustains damage, we may recommend a dental crown to protect your tooth and prevent continued damage. Dental crowns cover your natural tooth structure, absorb some of the force from chewing, and stabilize compromised teeth. Once a tooth breaks, it is more susceptible to damage. A dental crown can significantly improve your comfort and the longevity of your tooth.
We offer porcelain dental crowns that look natural and fit comfortably. Dr. Chu is a perfectionist when it comes to your dental restorations because your comfort depends on it.
While we do our best to help you preserve your natural teeth, occasionally tooth loss occurs because of an infection, damage, or decay. When you lose a tooth, we can provide you with a number of tooth-replacement options. When dental implants are not an option, a dental bridge can complete your smile and act as a placeholder for your missing tooth. This keeps your remaining teeth from drifting toward the gap in your smile.
Your adjacent teeth provide an anchor for an artificial tooth that fills your gap. Our bridges match the size, shape, and shade of your natural teeth, giving your smile a seamless appearance. We will discuss the special care your dental bridge requires so that you can get the most out of your investment.
