What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the optimal function and appearance of your smile.
By treating structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
After assessing your unique oral health needs, your dentist at Caledon East Dentistry will determine the right restorative treatment option for your smile.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed over the top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because dental bridges are custom-made, they blend well with your natural teeth and can restore the natural contour of the bite between your upper and lower teeth.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. Treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
Our Caledon East dentist uses composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too severe for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of an infected tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure as well as talk and eat properly.
