You don't have to live with damage, discoloration or gaps when it comes to your teeth. There is a procedure that is right for you and your unique situation. From restorations and extractions to dentures, we can help or point you in the right direction.
When your teeth have suffered damage, they need to be fixed. Damage can be caused by tooth decay, which happens when oral bacteria feast on lingering food particles or sugars from beverages and produce harmful acids. At Nancy Shiba, DDS, your oral health is important. To protect your teeth from further damage, we offer composite fillings.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays function the same way that fillings do, but this type of restoration is applied after it is made, much like a crown. They are made using an impression of your tooth and are integrated into the structure of the tooth after it is created.

Bonding is a procedure where we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it. It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.

Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (nerve and blood supply), bacteria and any decay are removed, and the resulting space is filled with an inert material called gutta percha. After the tooth is healed, getting a crown is recommended, because the tooth will become brittle.

Some dental repairs require preliminary tasks before we can even begin the restoration work. Fixing teeth may not always be done in one office visit. One of those preliminary steps may be to lengthen the crown. Crown lengthening exposes a larger portion of your tooth allowing us access to more tooth to place a dental crown.

A tooth extraction is a procedure done to remove a tooth that is damaged beyond repair from its socket in the jawbone. Extractions are also done to remove wisdom teeth that may be impacted or create future problems. Many extractions can be performed in our San Jose, CA office; however, more complicated procedures may be referred to one of our trusted oral surgeons.

After you've had dental implant surgery, it is important that you follow a series of instructions in order to promote the best possible healing. First and foremost, avoid disturbing the wound, and to do this, you shouldn't rinse, spit, or touch the wound for the first 24 hours after surgery.
