Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry may include cosmetic as well as laser procedures.

It can be something as simple as filling a cavity with composite material the same color as your tooth or replacing a crown that has outlived its restorative role.

Do you have a tendency to brush too aggressively? This is very common and can lead to erosion of the gums, causing sensitivity to hot and cold liquids, sweets and acidic foods. If caught early, small tooth-colored fillings can be placed along the gumline to restore the areas of erosion.

On occasion, erosion can develop below the gumline. Dr. Chiu uses a laser to expose the decay and restore the tooth in one visit. Laser treatment is a benefit to our patients since a visit to a specialist can often be avoided, saving both time and money.

These are just a few of the examples of the restorative dentistry treatments Dr. Chiu performs on a daily basis. Before any procedure is scheduled, Dr. Chiu takes the time to explain all of the necessary steps, the risks and benefits, as well as what to expect following the procedure.

In addition, the front office will be able to provide you with a fee estimate, and if you have dental benefits, an estimate of insurance reimbursement for any procedures.

Implant Dentistry

At Altos Dental Care we feel that Implant dentistry is revolutionary. There was a time when missing teeth could only be replaced with bridges, dentures or partial dentures. Thankfully, those days are over! Dental implants have given dentists and patients a way to replace missing teeth without having to "prepare" or shave down adjacent teeth that are healthy. The crown that is placed over an implant is often so aesthetic, no one even knows it's a crown!

Implant supported dentures and bridges are also a dream come true for patients that have lost teeth. When a tooth or multiple teeth are missing, bone loss can occur. This can lead to the facial structure looking hollow or sunken. With dental implants, the bone and facial structure are preserved and the restorations, whether they are full dentures or a bridge are comfortable.  The beauty of dental implants is that they don't decay! Once placed, they are often permanent.

Aethestic Dentistry

Aesthetic techniques including whitening, veneers, inlays, onlays, bonding and contouring.

We use metal-free and lifelike tooth-colored crowns, bridges and veneers. Your teeth can be whitened with laser in less than one hour.
