The incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
There are many potential treatments for restorative dentistry depending on the symptoms and requirements. These include:
Anyone who is missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or tooth decay may be a candidate for dental implants. The determining factor is the amount of available bone. Your dentist is the best person to evaluate whether dental implants are a viable solution for you.
A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
Lumineers are contact lens-thin and are placed over existing teeth without having to remove sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers.) Lumineers are the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.
A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. You and your dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case.

"I am a regular patient but had to come in same day as an emergency when I developed severe pain. They were able to fit me into the schedule with no issue. I was treated amazingly well by all of the staff. I was very nervous when they told me I would need the first phase of a root canal, but they reassured me and the procedure was pain-free. The doctor and his staff are very attentive and are concerned with making sure you are comfortable at all times. Couldn't recommend them more, they are all great from Vicky up front to the MD and all of his staff."
I don't normally make reviews, but I feel compelled after having such a great experience. I suffer from dental phobia/anxiety. I mean it is so severe that I have to take valume before my visits. well, I use to... My root canal went so smoothly that I was able to sit through my next appointment on my own. I don't think words can explain how good the Dr. and his staff are at making you comfortable and at ease. This is definitely the place for someone who has had bad experiences in the past.
I had been with another dental office, but saw Dr. Barsoum's office for a specialty (Endo). My first interaction was with Dr. Barsoum; let me tell you.. this man is very kind, caring, and so professional! I really like how he goes over and beyond for the patient experience. Dr. Edalat is also a class act. He is so gentle with his hands. He performed a root canal on me.. I promise you, I felt nothing, and I even went to work that same night for 12 hours with no pain meds or issues. I also liked how Dr. Barsoum PERSONALLY calls you, the patient, the evening of your visit to see how every thing went, to see if you have any concerns or are in pain. That says a lot! Most doctors don't care what happens to you after you leave their office, but Dr. Barsoum does, and I highly respect him for that. I recommend Dr. Barsoum and Dr. Edalat for all of your dental needs. These doctors are amazing!
"The staff are wonderful and friendly. Dr. Barsoum is the most caring Dentist I have ever met. I went in for two fillings and a root canal. I was expecting it to be very painful, but to my surprise it was not. Dr. Barsoum took really good care of me when I was there, and he even makes "checkup" call to make sure I'm doing fine. Overall, my experience there was just WONDERFUL!"
I had to have a root canal re-done that another dentist did incorrectly. Dr. Edalat made sure I was comfortable at all times. He was done before I knew it and didn't feel any pain at all. The entire staff are wonderful.
