Of course, in some situations, you may feel that you need to see your dentist sooner, particularly after a dental injury. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, patients can reach out to us to book urgent treatment for a dental problem.

Once this is done, we can work with you to restore your full smile by planning the appropriate prosthetic dental work.
