Restorative dentistry aims to correct issues caused by disease, trauma, or other damage to the teeth and surrounding tissues.

When a tooth is decayed or damaged, Dr. Stein will most likely recommend a filling. A dental filling is a tooth-colored material that is used to restore the shape and size of a tooth that has been eroded by cavities or cracks. It can also be used to strengthen a damaged tooth or support a fractured tooth. Dr. Stein will first remove any damaged or decayed enamel, then fill it with the composite dental resin. Finally, she will cure it with a light, ensuring that your filling is strong and durable.

Your tooth contains various layers, such as the outer enamel, dentin, and a core substance known as the pulp. When this soft tissue becomes infected by bacteria, it can cause problems. That's when root canal treatment becomes necessary. Untreated teeth can result in compromised gums or abscesses, so it’s crucial to seek the treatment as soon as possible. The root canal therapy procedure involves removing the infected pulp from your tooth and capping it with a dental crown. With a root canal treatment, Dr. Stein can help save your natural tooth, preventing an extraction.
While many people think of root canal therapy as a possibly painful dental procedure, the truth is that the vast majority of root canals are non-surgical, fast, and painless. At Sutter Dental Collective in in San Francisco, we use only the best and latest technology and offer sedation options to ensure you stay relaxed and comfortable every step of the way.
Dental crowns can be used for many different reasons. For example, they can be used to fix a broken or discolored tooth as well as to cap a tooth that has been treated with a root canal. They look just like a natural tooth and you can care for it like one too! Simply keep brushing and flossing as you normally would.
If you’ve lost a tooth or multiple teeth and are looking for a budget-friendly treatment, dental bridges might be the right option for you. Dental bridges can help restore the functionality and beauty of your smile. Our San Francisco team at 450 Sutter will custom craft your dental bridge to blend in perfectly with your smile.
Dentures are a type of dental prosthetics that are used to replace a number of missing teeth or a full arch of teeth. Dentures consist of a gum-fitting upper plate and natural-looking prosthetic teeth. They may be a good option for you if you’ve lost most or all of your natural teeth and are looking for a treatment that will afford you rapid results.
