You don't have to live with damage, discoloration or gaps when it comes to your teeth. There is a procedure that is right for you and your unique situation. From bridges, to dentures, to implants, we can help or point you in the right direction.
Fillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Dr. Bijan Modjtahedi uses composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed. Read More About Fillings
Crowns are used to restore teeth severely damaged by fracture or decay. After the tooth surface is cleaned and prepared, the crown is placed to cover the remainder of the tooth. Read More About Dental Crowns
Veneers vs Dental Crowns
Both veneers and dental crowns are restorative procedures - but that’s where the similarities end. Veneers are mostly used to improve the appearance of otherwise healthy teeth that are properly doing their job. However, dental crowns serve both functional and aesthetic purposes. Often referred to as ‘caps,’ dental crowns are used to repair heavily damaged teeth.

Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are well-fit, strong, and durable restorations that are fabricated indirectly at our dental laboratory. An indirect filling is considered an inlay if the restoration is bonding to the center of the occlusal (chewing) surface of the tooth and does not extend beyond the cusps.

Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth in both a cosmetic and functional fashion. A bridge structure is one or more artificial teeth anchored in place by natural teeth, crowns or implants, on each side of the bridge. Using a bridge to fill the gap from missing teeth helps restore proper bite. It also prevents teeth from shifting to fill the gap (which may lead to additional bite and jaw joint issues). Bridges can be constructed from gold, porcelain and metal, or ceramic. Ceramic bridge color is made to match your natural tooth color. Material choice will depend on structural requirements, wear, and aesthetics. Read More About Dental Bridges
Dentures & Partial Dentures
Dentures are a replacement option for missing teeth. A complete denture is a removable prosthesis of white plastic teeth in a pink gum-colored plastic base; the denture rests on the remaining gum ridge once all of the teeth in the arch have been removed. Read More About Dentures
Root Canal Therapy
A "root canal," or endodontic therapy, is a procedure available to save a tooth that is infected and would otherwise require extraction. There are many reasons that teeth can become infected, including: cavities, previous large fillings, crowns, cracks and trauma. Read More About Root Canals
Your teeth have many essential responsibilities. In addition to biting and chewing food, the teeth play an important role in your speech. They provide you with a beautiful smile and even play an integral role in the health of your jawbone. The teeth are incredibly strong, allowing them to do all of these functions easily. However, they can be damaged. In the event of tooth damage, the ideal solution is to restore them. In the event of severe damage, though, the teeth may be beyond repair. Attempting to repair a severely damaged tooth could compromise your oral, and overall, health. At Bijan Family Dental Practice, we can extract a damaged tooth with a simple tooth extraction and provide a replacement. Read More About Simple Extractions
