Restorative dentistry involves repairing damaged teeth. In addition to negatively affecting oral health and comfort, damaged teeth can reduce self-confidence when they affect appearance. Several procedures provided by Dr. Ben Amini and associates, our San Francisco restorative dentistry experts, focus on restoring looks and functionality when patients suffer from problems involving tooth decay, tooth infections, or tooth loss.
Our experts in restorative dentistry in San Francisco may recommend any of several options for repairing damage caused by tooth decay or physical trauma. With tooth-colored fillings, cavities can be repaired without disrupting the appearance or structural integrity of teeth. Inlays and onlays provide solutions for more extensively affected teeth, and crowns are options for restoring certain teeth that have been severely damaged or fractured.

Endodontics is another area of treatment provided by our San Francisco restorative dentistry expert. Used to resolve infections inside of teeth, endodontic therapy eliminates damaged tissue and preserves teeth so that removal can often be avoided. Basic root canal treatment is sufficient for many cases of tooth infection, but root canal surgery may be necessary for certain advanced infections. Endodontic treatment focuses on removal of an infection, filling the tooth with medicated packing material, and sealing the tooth with a filling. A crown is often placed on these teeth for long-term protection as well as cosmetic preservation.
“At CitiDent, you can receive specialty care by our team endodontist and restore your tooth all in one facility to insure you receive an accurate and efficient care in a comfortable setting.” –Dr. Amini
Patients who have lost teeth can visit our experts in restorative dentistry in San Francisco for several tooth replacement options. These include full and partial dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. All of these options restore appearance and the abilities to speak and chew properly, but dental implants also prevent bone resorption in the jaw. Because dental implants are rooted in the jawbone, recipients are also protected from deterioration of facial appearance.
“Dental implants are the most natural replacement for teeth today.” -Dr. Amini
