Cosmetic Dentistry In Ojai, CA
Restoring the Appearance and Function of Your Smile in Ojai, Ventura & Oxnard
When it comes to saving teeth, restoring and protecting the look and function of the original dentition are important. David A. Watson, DDS provides cosmetic dental restorations and other cosmetic procedures in Ojai, Ventura, and Oxnard that can rebuild your smile.
Dental Implant Crowns and Other Restorations
One of our Ojai dentist’s primary cosmetic and restorative services is to provide porcelain dental restorations which protect and replace teeth. Porcelain is almost indistinguishable from naturally healthy teeth, so most people will not notice these prostheses when you smile.
A porcelain crown is one of Dr. Watson’s more common dental restorations. These crowns serve as caps which cover an existing tooth and protect it from decay and stress. Alternatively, a porcelain crown can be placed atop a single dental implant to replace a missing tooth.
A removable partial denture or fixed dental bridge can also be used to replace a missing tooth or row of teeth, with or without dental implants. Removable partials are dental appliances which feature one or more prosthetic teeth along a metal framework. Removable partial dentures are clasped around the teeth which neighbor gaps in the smile. Fixed bridges are conventionally anchored in place with crowns placed over those neighboring teeth. An implant-supported porcelain bridge or partial, however, is used to replace a row of missing teeth and is anchored to two or more implants, instead of neighboring teeth.
In the event that a full arch of teeth has to be replaced, an implant-supported denture can provide a comprehensive restoration with little as four implants. For patients who prefer removable prostheses, traditional dentures are also provided by our Ojai dentist to replace a full arch of teeth.
Teeth Whitening and Veneers
Our Ojai dentist is able to help patients achieve brighter smiles with teeth whitening services and porcelain veneers.
The in-office teeth whitening products Dr. Watson uses are able to lift mild and moderate stains from teeth. The improved shade of your teeth can last for months if properly cared for, enabling our patients to enjoy their smiles once more. If a tooth is severely stained, a porcelain veneer can brighten it and protect it from further staining. Dental veneers are thin layers of material, typically porcelain, which cover the surface of a tooth. Not only does the porcelain of the veneer brighten the tooth, but the shape of the veneer can fill in any gaps between teeth to create a more beautiful smile.
