3 Common Dental Issues and How Your California Dentist Can Fix Them

If you don’t love your smile it can be harder to smile. Studies have shown that the less a person smiles, the less they enjoy their life. At California Dental Group, we are in the business of restoring smiles. Read on to learn about three of the common dental issues we work with and then contact us at (800) 407-0161 for your appointment.

  1. Tooth decay and potential solutions

  2. Believe it or not, most people will have at least one cavity filling in their lives. It’s not a procedure you want to have but it’s actually pretty common. In some cases, we find cavities when we clean the teeth of our patients, and in other instances they find them on their own and come to us as a result. For example, they may think they have something stuck in their teeth, only to find that it won’t go away and is in fact a cavity.

    In some cases, cavities are too large to fill with a typical filling. There are many options in this case, including using dental crowns to cover the tooth. You’ll get comprehensive information on your options when you visit

  3. Chipped or cracked teeth and potential solutions

  4. It’s easier than many people realize to chip or crack their tooth. It may be something as simple as an unpopped popcorn kernel, or it may be a piece of ice that cracked your tooth. Whatever the cause, there are ways to fix it. Once again, a dental crown may be the right answer or a filling may help. In other cases, a dental implant may be the best fit. The first step is making an appointment with California Dental Group.

  5. Lost teeth and potential solutions

  6. People lose teeth for any number of reasons and in a variety of ways. For example, they may lose a tooth in a car accident or sporting accident. They may lose a tooth to decay. They may lose a tooth by biting into something hard or sharp. No matter how you lost your tooth – or teeth – there are solutions.

Once again, a dental implant may be the best choice for some people. In other cases, partial or full dentures could be a solution. If the root of the tooth is still there then we may recommend a crown. It all depends on your preferences, the specifics of your case, and your dental insurance.
