Tarzana Dentist General Dentistry


A few years back, a visit to the dentist was one that people used to dread. But general dentistry is quite different now. Now you can approach your dentist for all dental problems ranging from toothaches to the enhancement of your teeth structure. Moreover, dental procedures are now pain-free, so the days of dreading your dentist are over.

At Tarzana general dentist, we offer a wide variety of solutions to address any dental problem that you may have. Described below are some of the most popular treatment options:


Dental Implants

tarzana dentist - dental implantsAn ideal solution for missing teeth, they are custom-made to resemble natural teeth in shape, size, color and function. They are the latest alternative to traditional dentures and removable bridges. The root of the dental implants is made of titanium which has the unique property of integrating with bone and living tissue. The artificial tooth made of porcelain or composites, is fixed on top of the titanium root. Dental implants are convenient, permanent and durable. Once the procedure is completed, you will not even feel like you have artificial teeth in your mouth. It feels completely natural, and if you don’t tell anyone, nobody will ever know.



tarzana dentist - crownsA crown is a cap or a cover that is fixed over the modified tooth. Crowns are needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. They are typically bonded using dental cement. Crowns are made from materials such as porcelain that have superior mechanical properties, quality and finish.


Dental Bridge

tarzana dentist - bridgesA popular solution for missing tooth, bridging is a dental restoration procedure used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. It is a fixed partial denture that cannot be removed at will. The two adjacent teeth are modified to accommodate the bridge. Dental bridges can be made from gold, porcelain fused to metal, or just porcelain.



tarzana dentist - denturesAlso known as dental plate, false teeth and falsies, dentures are removable structures that are custom-made to replace missing teeth. They need the support of the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Dentures may also be bonded or clipped onto adjacent teeth or dental implants.


Root Canal Treatment

tarzana dentist - root canalRoot canal is the treatment option where the main canals within the dentin of the tooth are infected and inflamed. The canals are a part of the natural cavity inside the tooth. This natural cavity consists of the dental pulp chamber, the main canals, and anatomical branches that connect the root canals to each other or to the root surface of the tooth. An infection may be caused due to caries or tooth fractures that allow bacteria access to the pulp chamber or the root canals. The infected tissue is removed by a procedure called endodontic therapy or 'root canal'.

At Tarzana general dentistry, all the latest dental procedures including those described above, are brought to you in a friendly, caring atmosphere. The expert staff at Tarzana will choose the ideal procedure for you depending on your unique requirements. Each patient undergoes a thorough dental checkup before we diagnose the problem and recommend a treatment option. We also check whether you are compatible with the materials that will be used for the procedure.

Tarzana general dentist offers pain-free general dentistry procedures in a relaxing and stress-free atmosphere. Our staff will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

If you're looking to transform your smile quickly and easily, Veneers and Lumineers are two great options to consider. At Tarzana Dentist, Dr. Chaves and his team will deliver comprehensive results in the correction of crooked teeth, fixing gaps between teeth, repairing chipped teeth, and whitening yellow or discolored teeth. Veneers and Lumineers offer some of the most dramatic and effective results in repairing and perfecting your smile.

There are two types of veneers - composite and porcelain. Porcelain Veneers are a thin and semi-transparent sheet of porcelain that is considered a more natural-looking approach in smile repair. A thin sheet of porcelain is bonded over the surface of the tooth. Composite veneers are constructed from a composite material, such as resin and are utilized in more extreme cases of tooth disrepair. Lumineers are made of patented porcelain that is thinner than any Veneer on the market today. No matter what your smile aspirations may be, Veneers and Lumineers are a viable option to fix any aspect of your teeth you are not happy with!
