Crowns restore your broken or damaged tooth to its usual look and function. Our dentists often install crowns to hold together a broken tooth, cover an implant, support a tooth after a root canal, or anchor a dental bridge. We craft beautiful, personalized porcelain dental crowns that are custom-designed to fit in among your surrounding teeth.
Is there a gap in your smile? Dental bridges are used to anchor an artificial tooth in the gap between two teeth. Torrey Pines Dental Arts offers porcelain dental bridges that fill the gaps in your smile. A bridge is a more affordable, non-invasive solution to dental implants, and they are one of the most common solutions for missing teeth.
If your teeth have significant decay but still have a healthy internal structure, we can save them with inlays or onlays. These dental restorations are an alternative to fillings. Unlike fillings, which involve adding composite resin to a tooth and then curing it, inlays/onlays are made from ceramic materials and then installed over your decayed teeth. This solution helps cover the top of the tooth, improve its shape, and keep your tooth strong and healthy. Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, we can make inlays/onlays in just one visit!
Dentures are an inexpensive, common solution for patients who are missing multiple teeth. Modern dentures are crafted from long-lasting, durable materials that look similar to your regular teeth. Our dentists can craft your dentures to fit your unique smile and facial features! We can also secure your dentures to the jawbone with dental implants to stop your dentures from slipping.
We recommend dental implants for clients who have lost teeth due to extractions, accidents, disease, or other causes. Dental implants mimic the root of a missing tooth. We create an artificial tooth and install it directly in your jawbone, which supports jawbone strength and prevents your other teeth from drifting into the gap.
Many patients come to us because they have severe dental problems, ranging from missing teeth to oral pain.

Our full-mouth reconstruction services rebuild your smile and help you regain complete jaw function.
Our dental office staffs two endodontics, Dr. Michael Sherman and Dr. James Morris, who provide expert treatment for root canal therapy. This procedure offers relief for patients who have diseased or decayed teeth that require specialized treatment. Root canal therapy tries to preserve these teeth to avoid extraction.
All teeth are made up of a soft inner core called the pulp and an outer structure. Root canal therapy is necessary when the pulp of the tooth is damaged. Typically, the tooth would have to be removed, but our endodontists can remove the diseased pulp and preserve the outside layer of the tooth. Then we set a dental crown over your tooth and make sure that your smile looks natural. Root canal therapy avoids the need for tooth extraction, relieves your oral pain, and protects your gums, jawbone, and other teeth.
Our maxillofacial and oral surgeons work with patients who need assistance with misaligned jaws, problem wisdom teeth, and facial pain. We also treat patients who need dental implants, oral cancer treatments, and facial cosmetic surgery, among other needs.
Our team offers advanced training in anesthesia that ensures total patient comfort! We understand that undergoing dental surgery can be scary, and we do our best to keep you happy and comfortable.
