Restorative dentistry brings health and beauty back to your smile in Petaluma, CA

Over the last several decades, increasing awareness of the importance of good daily oral hygiene and the use of preventative treatments such as dental sealants and fluoride have led to a decline in tooth decay. However, sometimes despite our best efforts, issues such as infection, decay, and injuries occur that negatively impact our teeth. At North Bay Smiles, we offer patients in the Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Cotati, Santa Rosa, Novato, and surrounding CA communities a comprehensive array of restorative dentistry services to restore the function, health, and appearance of their smiles.

Why restorative care might be needed

Accidents, inadequate oral hygiene, hormone changes, genetics, and even taking certain medications can all take a toll on your oral health. Some of the most common reasons for restorative dental treatment include:

  • Pain in one or more teeth
  • Cavities or larger areas of decay
  • Cracks or breaks in a tooth
  • Uneven wear and tear on teeth
  • Tooth loss or extractions
  • Infection within a tooth
  • Improper bite that is causing pain or tooth problems
  • Traumatic injury to a tooth
  • Worn out or unattractive old dental restorations

Our restorative dental care approach

At our family-oriented private dental practice, we put your needs and preferences first. What this means for you is that in many cases, we offer multiple treatment options and will take the time to talk through your choices with you, along with the pros and cons of each option, and answer any questions you may have to help you decide on the best path forward. Dr. Szyperski believes in conservative treatments where possible, which means she will recommend the least invasive and most comfortable options that will provide the best results, restoring health and beauty to your smile. Depending on your specific needs, we may discuss one or more of the following types of treatments with you:

  • Tooth-colored dental fillings
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Dental crowns (tooth caps)
  • Root canal therapy
  • Tooth replacement options such as fixed bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures
