Find a Fix for Your Problem With Our Wide Range of  Services

If you feel insecure about the way your teeth look, you certainly aren’t alone. More than half of Americans feel ashamed about their smile. If you tend to hide your mouth when you smile or laugh, it’s time to change all that. Whether you have a cavity, an infected tooth, or a cracked tooth, we can repair your smile with these services:

  • Tooth Fillings – Tooth decay is a common problem. Tooth fillings are an effective fix, but traditional metal fillings come with that unattractive silver look. Our composite resin fillings are matched to the exact color of your teeth.
  • Root Canals – A root canal can save your damaged tooth from extraction. In most cases, Dr. Victoria Shook can take care of your procedure right here in our office. To make sure you get the best care possible to keep your smile safe, we refer complicated cases to a trusted specialist.
  • Dental Crowns – Dental crowns will restore your damaged teeth to full working order. We offer full dental crowns as well as partial crowns (inlays and onlays). All our dental crowns are metal-free. We use zirconia or e.max (lithium disilicate) crowns.
  • Dental Bridges – Dental bridges can replace just one tooth or many teeth. We offer two dental bridge options to help you have a great looking and functioning smile: traditional fixed bridges, which rely on your natural teeth for support, and implant-supported bridges that are firmly attached to dental implants.
  • Dental Veneers – Veneers are not only a cosmetic fix. A dental veneer can stabilize and protect chipped or mildly cracked teeth from further damage.
  • Dentures – Digital dentures technology ensures you get a great fit and helps us repair or replace dentures more quickly if needed.

Get your smile back to its optimal health! To visit an experienced, trustworthy restorative dentist in San Pedro, call 310-982-6333 or use our online form.

Common Questions About Restorative Dentistry

What does restorative dentistry include?

Restorative dentistry services are designed to repair and replace damaged and missing teeth. We offer several types of restorative dentistry, including tooth-colored fillings, root canals, dental crowns, bridges, dentures, veneers, dental implant restorations, inlays, and onlays. In many cases, Dr. Shook will combine two or more of these treatments to repair a patient’s smile.

What does restorative dentistry cost?

There is no way to give you an accurate estimate of your restorative treatment without first performing an exam and taking X-rays. The cost can vary widely, from treatment as routine as a tooth filling to restoring a full mouth of teeth. Rest assured, we’ll let you know what your treatment costs before doing any work.

Why get restorative dentistry?

Restorative dentistry helps you feel better about your smile – and yourself – by fixing teeth that have fallen into disrepair. Both your smile’s appearance and function will improve. In addition, restorative treatments can enhance your overall health by allowing you to eat healthier foods you may have been avoiding because of difficulty chewing.

What does a root canal do?

When we perform a root canal procedure, it is because the soft inner portion of the tooth (known as the pulp) has become infected. For this procedure, your dentist will access the pulp through the top of the tooth, clean it out, sanitize and shape the root canals, and seal the tooth back. This treatment allows us to save your tooth while stopping your pain.
