What is Restorative Dentistry?
Restorative dentistry refers to a group of treatments and procedures designed to rehabilitate damaged, decayed or missing teeth. With healthy, strong teeth, you can enjoy optimal chewing and speaking ability, a normal looking smile and more self-confidence.
Modern advances in restorative dentistry enable Dr. Jaime Breziner, Dr. David Vasquez and Dr. Garry Bloch of La Jolla Family Smile Design to restore health and beauty to the teeth quickly, affordably and with minimal or no discomfort. Individuals seeking restorative dentistry treatment in La Jolla and the surrounding San Diego areas trust that our dentists can deliver excellent results and world class patient care.
