Restorative Dentistry

What type of repair you need will depend on the damage done and how your dentists recommends to best reconstruct the problems. Options include: dental bridges, inlays, onlays, crowns and fillings.

Dental Bridges

dental_bridgeDental bridges  are custom-created to replace lost teeth. A fixed bridge consists of two crowns connected to a false tooth or teeth. The crowns are fitted over the teeth to the sides of the missing teeth, which places the artificial teeth into the gap created from the missing ones. Bridges are strong and reliable and can last over ten years with proper care and you have an easier time eating and speaking.

 

 

 

Inlays and Onlays

They are designed to fit the unique shape of your teeth and then are bonded to your teeth. They are strong and durable and will last a long time if you take proper maintenance care. They can be a good substitution for metal fillings.

 

 

 

Crowns

Here, we use non metal crowns made of porcelain because the material is very solid, impervious to stains and marks, is biocompatible, and it looks more natural on the tooth. Porcelain crowns mimic your tooth’s enamel in expansion and contraction throughout the life of the crown, therefore it is a preferable choice when restoring damaged teeth.

 

 

Fillings

composite_fillingsWhite dental fillings are a great and safe alternative to silver amalgams. They are also made from a white composite resin which mimics the look and feel of a real tooth. They revitalize the strength of a decayed tooth while maintaining the durability and functionality. White fillings are much more aesthetically pleasing and are recommended because they a free from harmful elements such as mercury and prevent further dental damage while lasting you a long time.

Testimonials

“My husband and I both cannot imagine going to another dentist than Dr. Stacy Godes. She is truly extraordinary. We live in the Bay Area, and though there are a plethora of medical professionals (including holistic professionals) in the SF Bay, we are so happy with the experiences that we have had with Dr. Godes that we cannot imagine going to someone else. It goes without saying that she is a fantastic dentist. Couple that with her holistic knowledge, integrity, and intuition (how often do you compliment a dentist's intuition??) and it's obvious what a true gem she is. Not only have we experienced the standard dental appointments (cleaning, Xrays, etc), but I have had her remove and replace my amalgam fillings and some old crowns. I also had her extract a root canal. I felt significantly better RIGHT AWAY after each of these procedures and I 100% believe that Dr. Godes is so skilled that they could not have gone better with anyone else. You could not be in better, safer, more knowledgeable, or more competent hands. She is very knowledgeable about diet/nutrition and other aspects of health as well--a truly holistic doctor.”
