Restorative Procedures in Palo Alto
Crowns, Root Canals, Extractions, and Fillings in Palo Alto, CA
A crown is a cap that we install over a damaged tooth or even a discolored or a badly-shaped tooth to restore its appearance, strength, and functionality. You may need a crown if you have cavities too large to fill, have missing, chipped, or weak tooth, cover a dental implant, or cover an imperfection. Talk to us today about ways we can restore your smile!
A dental bridge is a “false tooth” that bridges the gaps in your teeth caused by missing teeth. Usually anchored to natural teeth or metallic or ceramic prosthetic devices, such as crowns, implants, or other frameworks, bridges work extremely well to restore your smile, the functionality of your teeth, and even your speech due to missing teeth. Contact us today to see if bridges could be the solution to your perfect teeth.
According to the ADA, 36 million people in the U.S. do not have any teeth. Of those, 90% use dentures to maintain dental appearance and functionality. Dentures can be complete or partial based on the extent of tooth loss and condition of your gums. Talk to our dentists to see which type of denture best meets your needs.
Have a badly damanged or decayed tooth but don’t want to have it extracted? Talk to us to see if root canal is an option for you. Root canal is a procedure that helps us remove the infected pulp from the canals. The tooth is then sealed to prevent further infection. At Cambridge Dental Studio, we are always ethically inclined to save your natural tooth, however, the final decision to do a root canal or extraction depends on your dental condition and needs. Talk to our highly experienced dentists in Palo Alto to discuss your options.
Although we try to salvage your natural tooth whenever possible, sometimes extraction is the only solution. This is especially true if you have a very large cavity that compromises the strength of your tooth’s structure or a fracture with a crack line that extends below your gum line, in which case, an extraction is the best option. Talk to our dentists to discuss your needs and your concerns. You can be assured of an honest discussion and competent advice!
Cavities, once they occur, need to be treated. Smaller cavities in their early stages can be repaired with fluoride. However, once the cavity reaches deeper than the top enamel, it needs to be professionally removed and filled to prevent further decay. We use white fillings to protect against further decay and provide a natural look. Talk to our dentists to find the best options for you.
Dr Yen is a great dental care provider. I have recommended him to people at work. His advice is conservative, honest which is hard to find in dentists around this area. He is generally happy and cordial with all his patients. 10/10 would recommend.
Alex Yen is an awesome dentist!! I've been going to him for a few years now and every time it's been a great experience. The staff is very friendly and the dental assistants always do a great job. I got a teeth whitening procedure done which isn't the most comfortable thing to have done, but it went by super fast and was done well. Dr. Yen always explains what he sees on X-rays or with your teeth so it's easy to understand. He also encourages and teaches best practices so you keep your mouth clean in between visits. Definitely recommend!
Alex Yen is a fantastic dentist. I initially only went to him for a cleaning, but he noticed some white spots and stains on my front teeth that had bothered me for years and offered a few options for how to fix them. I went back recently to have that done, and he did an awesome job. My teeth look perfect, the process was quick (took ~45 minutes), and I no longer feel self-conscious about how those teeth look. Dr. Yen is confident and professional and explains clearly what he is doing. His services are very affordable. I'm a Stanford grad student on Cardinal care. My cleaning was free, and 3 sealants plus the cosmetic procedure were only $150, even with minimal coverage from my dental insurance. The front desk is helpful and friendly, and they respond promptly to questions about scheduling, cost estimates, etc.
