Restorative Dentist Scripps Ranch Trusts
Rare is the person who manages to go through life without needing any restorative dentistry procedures. For that reason, Dr. Greg Friedman is skilled and experienced at numerous treatment options to help you maintain your smile with your natural teeth or, when necessary, with tooth replacements that look completely lifelike. The most commonly performed restorative treatment is a filling to repair a tooth with decay. Dr. Friedman uses tooth-colored composite resin materials for fillings, allowing your smile to remain white. For patients with missing teeth, we offer crown and bridgework, as well as dental implants. Dr. Friedman will evaluate your unique circumstances to determine which option is best for you. In the case of an infected tooth, Dr. Friedman will perform a painless root canal procedure to preserve the tooth and restore function.
Dr. Friedman and his staff at MOD Squad Dental would be happy to add you and your family to our growing list of patients. Call our office in nearby Scripps Ranch to schedule an appointment.
Scripps Ranch Dental Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns are an important cornerstone of restorative dentistry, being designed to fit over individual teeth and restore their function, look, and shape seamlessly. There are several reasons why Dr. Greg Friedman and the rest of our team here in Scripps Ranch may recommend having a crown created and placed, including:
- Severe dental decay
- An injury to a tooth
- A generally weakened tooth
- Cosmetic concerns, like misshapen enamel
- The finishing touch for root canal therapy
- The finishing touch for dental implants
Crowns can also be used in conjunction with dental bridges, which are designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. This restorative solution can be a lifesaver, filling in empty gaps in your smile and restoring much-needed facial structure and biting strength. The dental crowns fall on either side, attaching to nearby healthy teeth as “anchors” that keep the bridge firmly in place for a more secure fit overall. Removable bridges, also known as partials, are available as well.
Contact MOD Squad Dental today if you have any questions about our available restorative services, or if you’re ready to schedule your first appointment. We love seeing patients from Poway, Mira Mesa, and all over San Diego.
For many patients, the mere mention of “root canal” may be enough to send them scrambling for cover. Here in San Diego, let our dental team soothe your fears. Despite an unfairly bad reputation, the truth is that root canal therapy is actually a fairly comfortable and incredibly successful procedure that can restore health to a badly decayed tooth. In fact, our team may be able to save it from the threat of extraction and help you maintain your natural smile. Feel free to contact MOD Squad Dental today if you have any questions about our available services, or if you’re ready to schedule an appointment with Dr. Greg Friedman.
During the root canal procedure, Dr. Friedman will carefully access the inner chamber of your tooth, removing diseased pulp and bacteria. After replacing it with a safe substance and sealing the tooth shut again to prevent further instances of infection, we’ll place a custom dental crown as the finishing touch, restoring the tooth’s health and shape.

This patient has been coming to see Dr. Friedman for a long time. He was ready to make a change in his smile. After consulting with Dr. Friedman, they decided that placing eight porcelain veneers was ideal to enhance his smile. After two short visits, the results were amazing!
