Did you know that getting dental fillings can greatly improve your oral health and comfort? Dental fillings are commonly recommended to treat cavities caused by tooth decay. By filling cavities, you can prevent further decay, protect the tooth from infection, and restore its strength and function.

Your dentist may recommend dental fillings to maintain the health and integrity of your teeth. This procedure can lead to improved oral hygiene, reduced discomfort, and a lower risk of dental complications in the future, ensuring you can smile confidently for years to come!


What to Expect During Your Appointment

Your dental filling consultation at Smooth Dental Solutions in La Habra, CA typically lasts 1-2 hours, depending on your specific needs. We begin with a thorough evaluation, including a review of your dental history and any symptoms or concerns you may have related to your teeth.

Anesthesia is generally not needed for consultations or most diagnostic procedures. During your appointment, we’ll discuss various treatment options, such as dental fillings, to address cavities and restore the health of your teeth.

Once we’ve determined the best treatment plan for you, we’ll provide detailed instructions on post-operative care and recovery. Regular follow-up appointments will ensure that your dental health is on track, with any necessary adjustments made along the way.

With careful attention and adherence to post-operative instructions, you can effectively manage your dental fillings, ensuring a healthy smile and improved oral health.

Dental implants replace damaged or missing teeth with titanium posts mimicking natural roots. Surgically inserted into the jawbone, they fuse with the bone through osseointegration, providing stability. This foundation supports crowns, bridges, or dentures.

All on 6 Implants

We offer full upper or lower teeth restoration with fixed dental bridges, replacing up to 10 or 12 teeth in one procedure. Using premium materials, we ensure lasting durability. Our methods include All-on-4 implants or full mouth dental implants for a complete smile transformation.


Denture Implants

Denture implants use titanium posts in the jawbone to support dental restorations, acting like natural roots. This durable solution maintains bone structure and facial appearance, giving patients a comfortable and natural-looking option for missing teeth.
