Dental implants are titanium posts surgically implanted in the jaw to replace lost tooth roots. Dr. Karafin can place your dental implants and restore them with fully customized dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures. If you are suffering with a compromised smile, there is no better way to restore your bite’s balance, comfort, and functionality.
We offer fully customized dental crowns and bridges. Crowns are prosthetic teeth designed to cover a tooth following treatment for damage or decay. Bridges are designed to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can be supported by adjacent dental crowns, or by dental implants. We can help you explore your restorative dentistry options at our Mission Viejo office.
Dr. Karafin provides custom dentures to restore balance, functionality, and a natural appearance to your smile. We can provide both full and partial dentures to meet a range of needs, as well as both traditional and implant-supported dentures. During an initial consult, Dr. Karafin will make an expert recommendation based on your goals and needs.
In some cases, a tooth cannot be restored with a filling alone, yet does not require an entire crown. Dental inlays and onlays provide a solid, conservative restoration. An inlay fills a cavity on the top of a tooth, between the cusps, while an onlay can cover a cusp and extend down the side of a tooth.
If you suffer with damaged or missing teeth, or failing dental work, speak with Dr. Karafin about full mouth reconstruction. He can create a custom treatment plan to address your dental needs in phases, with various treatments. If aesthetics are a concern, he can employ cosmetic dental treatments and materials to meet your needs.
