Fillings

Fillings

If you’re in need of a dental filling, you’re not alone. As one of the most common dental restorations performed, dental fillings help stop decay from spreading. Our dental fillings match your enamel, as we use tooth-colored composite resin. When cured, the filling feels natural, and you can use your teeth to eat, drink, chew, and speak like always. The whole treatment is quick, and our fillings are durable. Stop decay before it becomes a larger complication.

Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

If your teeth have succumbed to a moderate amount of decay, a traditional composite filling may not be a suitable restoration. In these circumstances, we can recommend a porcelain inlay or onlay restoration, depending on the area needing repair. Inlays sit atop the interior biting surface of the tooth, up to the cusps. Onlays do the same but extend over the cusps to the exterior area of the tooth. Both are crafted from high-quality porcelain and can help to strengthen the integrity of the tooth. Often, teeth repaired with inlays or onlays do not require additional support with a dental crown, making them a convenient and affordable option.

Crowns/Bridges

Crowns/Bridges

Broken, damaged teeth can be easily restored with a dental crown, a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your existing tooth. We’ll create a perfect impression of your tooth and send it to our off-site lab, where your beautiful new restoration will be crafted with skill and precision. We’ll secure a temporary crown until your permanent restoration can be bonded. Our dental crowns will fit just right, and you’ll only notice how great your new tooth looks. We use crowns to stabilize weakened teeth, whether from decay or endodontic therapy or to anchor a fixed bridge.

Dental bridges are a fixed prosthetic that can be used to replace either a single missing tooth or a series of teeth. Anchored by dental crowns on each side of the gap where the former teeth used to be, natural-looking prosthetics replace the missing teeth and create a seamless, beautiful restoration. We ensure perfect, comfortable fit, and that each prosthetic mimic your existing teeth for a natural appearance. Both crowns and bridges from Darren Chu DDS are always metal-free.

Partials

Partials

If you’ve lost a few teeth, but have some healthy natural teeth remaining, partials are an option to replace the teeth you’re missing. We craft prosthetic teeth which suit your facial aesthetics and stop your natural teeth from shifting. Unlike a dental bridge, partial dentures are removable, held in place by metal clasps on your existing teeth. We’ll ensure a comfortable fit and show you the proper way to care for your new restoration.

Dentures

Dentures

When you’ve lost an entire arch of teeth, no matter what the reason, your smile doesn’t have to suffer. We’ll create a custom set of stunning prosthetics, which appear so natural, no one will know you weren’t born with them. Using natural suction, your new dentures will fit securely and comfortably in your mouth, and you’ll be able to talk, eat, and smile with confidence. You deserve a full, complete smile. Let Darren Chu DDS help you get it!

Gum Surgery

Gum Surgery

We’re happy to offer periodontal surgery procedures to our patients with receding gum tissue, deep gum pockets, overgrowth of gum tissue, or require regeneration of gum tissue. Whether for cosmetic purposes or to help reduce bad bacteria, periodontal surgery helps to stimulate healthy tissue. No matter which type of gum surgery you’re having, we’ll ensure your comfort throughout the entire procedure, and you’ll be amazed at the results!

Endodontics

Endodontics

Endodontic therapy is commonly known as a “root canal,” and unfortunately, there’s a lot of negative perception about discomfort during the procedure. However, root canals actually relieve discomfort caused by infected dental pulp. If a tooth becomes badly infected, it can cause an abscess, which can be incredibly painful. Instead of extracting the tooth, if it can be saved, we’ll perform an endodontic procedure to remove the infection and restore health to your smile. We’ll evaluate your individual case, and while we perform both anterior and molar endodontics, we may refer you to a skilled specialist if needed.

Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery

If your natural tooth can’t be saved, and you require an extraction, we’re here for you. Oral surgery may seem overwhelming, but we’ll keep you informed during each step of the process, from initial consultation, to the surgery and aftercare. You can be confident in the care we provide and know you’re in the very best hands. Dr. Chu performs minor extractions right in our office, with the team you trust. We can even handle more advanced cases such as wisdom teeth or bony impactions for patients who don’t require general anesthesia.
