before & AFTER
restoring a youthful smile
This patient of ours was a dentist who had fractured his tooth many, many years ago. He wanted to freshen up his smile. We used conservative at home bleaching trays along with a conservative composite bonding to reverse history. His new, naturally youthful smile shines.
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
At Del Mar Dental Studio, we use tooth-colored composite fillings to repair cavities and protect your tooth from further decay. Dr. Pizzi uses tooth-colored fillings because they offer superior cosmetic results to give patients a seamless smile after treatment. Composite fillings do not contain mercury like amalgam fillings, so you won’t need to worry about any traces of this material left in your mouth when you have a cavity repaired at Del Mar Dental Studio.
Restore Infected Teeth
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is the best way to restore a tooth if it has become infected. If your tooth is infected due to a cavity or oral injury damaging your enamel and dentin, this can be extremely painful and cause many other complications.
Root canal therapy is used to disinfect and restore the form and function of your tooth. During treatment, Dr. Pizzi will remove the infected pulp, flush your tooth with disinfectant, and fill it with an inert material. Then, your tooth will be restored with a filling or a dental crown, protecting it from further damage.
Cover Damaged Teeth
Lab-Made Dental Crowns
Our lab-made dental crowns in Del Mar are built with precision and they are designed to fit over your damaged tooth perfectly. Crowns cover the structure of your tooth all the way down to the gumline and by doing so, your dental crown will take the place of your damaged tooth. This protects the underlying structure from any further damage or decay.
Replace Missing Teeth
Full & Partial Dentures
We offer both partial and full dentures at our office. Partial dentures, which use a metal and plastic framework to attach to your healthy teeth and restore multiple missing teeth, are a great option for restoring your smile if you are missing a small number of teeth.
Full dentures are a convenient way to restore your entire smile, but require the removal of all of your remaining healthy teeth. For this reason, Dr. Pizzi will only recommend full dentures if you have already lost most of your teeth. Contact your Del Mar dentist to find out if you’re a candidate for dentures.
Recover From Gum Disease
We offer gum grafting to help repair the damage caused by gum disease. During this treatment, Dr. Pizzi will take tissue from the roof of your mouth or other areas and graft it into your gums. This will strengthen and restore damaged gums as well as the appearance of your smile.
