Restore your smile beautifully in Newport Beach, CA

There are no secrets to keeping your teeth healthy for life — just a series of simple steps you can take to prevent tooth decay, gum disease and the prospect of losing your adult teeth as you age. Family dentistry is primarily restorative in nature.

As a family-oriented general dentist, Dr. Rich can help you when things go wrong with your dental health. Restorative dentistry is about restoring your teeth and bite to full function and health. That means removing tooth decay, maintaining healthy gums, repairing and protecting a broken tooth with a dental crown or replacing a missing tooth with a dental bridge or dental implants.

Dr. Rich starts you off with a very thorough exam, which includes checking for cavities (tooth decay), loose crowns or fillings, oral cancer, blood pressure and more. Dr. Rich takes time to get to know you, listens to your concerns and answers your questions. She also teaches you as much as you need to know to care for your own smile. It may just be the most informative, most comprehensive and gentlest dental exam you’ve ever received. And it's just the beginning of the quality restorative dental care you can expect. Restorative dental care includes:

Expert dental implants restorations

Implant dentistry has come a long way in recent years. Dental implants are now the preferred way to replace lost teeth. Our dental implants’ restorations are so lifelike that no one can tell them apart from your natural teeth. In addition to lasting for decades, dental implants never get cavities and never need root canals. And unlike full dentures or partial dentures, dental implants don’t have to be removed when you sleep. Even dentures can now be supported by implants to eliminate the inconvenience of daily removal and replacement.

Dental crown and dental bridge

A dental crown or dental bridge is a cost-effective solution – for replacing one or more missing teeth or protecting and strengthening the structure of seriously damaged teeth. A dental crown, which is typically made of porcelain or dental ceramic material fits over your existing damaged tooth like a glove. A dental bridge commonly consists of two dental crowns fused to a false tooth (called a pontic), which replaces the missing tooth. The two dental crowns fit over adjacent teeth to hold the pontic in place and restore your bite and appearance.

Lifelike full dentures and partial dentures

Whether you need full dentures, partial dentures or repairs to existing dentures, Dr. Rich can help. She uses only top-quality materials and proven craftsmanship from her fine in-house lab. Full and partial dentures can be implant-retained for greater stability, convenience, comfort and maximum chewing enjoyment. When properly made and fitted, full dentures should allow you to eat and speak comfortably after a brief adjustment period, usually no more than two weeks.
