Restorative Dentistry for Every Smile

Chrispens, DDS Inc office in Newport Beach, CA.At the office of Dr. John B. Chrispens and Dr. John Evans, we provide comprehensive general dentistry including restorative and implant dentistry of all types. To keep you comfortable throughout the process, we offer everything from nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to oral conscious and IV sedation with an anesthesiologist.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Fillings

Before treating cavities, we like to have our patients co-diagnose their dental conditions alongside of us. We share high-resolution images of your teeth and x-rays so that you see the very same things that we do. Addressing tooth decay early isn’t just less expensive, it allows us to preserve as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Efficient Root Canals

Dr. Evans has more than 20 years of experience in endodontics and thoroughly enjoys performing endodontic therapy for our patients. Through this service, we can help our patients maintain and preserve their natural teeth, rather than extract them. We’re firm believers in the benefit of root canals… after all, Dr. Chrispens has 10 of his own! Our in-house endodontic treatments start as low as $795.

Dental Implants

When restoring your natural teeth is no longer a solution, dental implants offer the best potential for restoring the integrity and function of your smile. Implants can be used to replace as few or as many teeth as necessary, anchoring everything from a single crown to a full mouth denture. Dr. Chrispens is very knowledgeable about dental implants, and has provided a great number of our Newport Beach patients with this wonderful modern tooth replacement. Thanks to 3D conebeam imaging, Dr. Chrispens can precisely place your artificial “tooth root” in an efficient and predictable manner. Single implants with crowns start as low as $2,999.

Dental Crowns, Inlays, and Onlays

If your tooth is damaged to the point where it cannot structurally support a filling, you will need a lab-made restoration that reinforces it. Dr. Evans will carefully place your dental crown (or "cap") to maintain your healthiest bite pattern, while ensuring maximum cosmetic appeal. We do our best to help you maintain the integrity of your healthy enamel by altering as little of your natural tooth as possible. Sometimes that means restoring your tooth with a crown, while other times it involves an inlay/onlay, for a less invasive approach.

For teeth toward the back of your mouth, a gold restoration may be best, as gold wears well and creates a flush margin that’s better for the health of your gums. All of our lab made restorations start with a digital scan for the most precise fit possible (no gooey impressions necessary!)

Tooth Extractions and Wisdom Tooth Removal

Impacted wisdom teeth often lead to pain, infection, or damage to your adjacent teeth. We offer in-house extractions and can even arrange for an oral surgeon to perform the procedure if necessary. Our veteran dentists can keep you comfortable during routine tooth extraction procedures.

Dental Bridges and Dentures

When you need to replace several or all of your teeth at once, Dr. Evans may recommend a customized denture or bridge as your best solution. Both options can be anchored over dental implants. In fact, denture stabilization can use as few as two implants with locators, starting as low as $3,999.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If you have significant dental problems, such as multiple missing teeth, numerous teeth with large fillings, or otherwise failing teeth, Dr. Evans can work with you to establish a comprehensive plan to rebuild your smile. Our team will likely combine several restorative options to achieve this under the artistic guidance and seasoned hands of Dr. Evans and Dr. Chrispens.
