Restorative dentistry is about procedures that restore damaged teeth.
Restorative procedures include fillings, dental implants, crowns, bridges and root canals. These are all procedures to restore any damaged teeth you may have.
Tooth Coloured Fillings
Tooth colored fillings (or commonly called composite fillings) are created to closely match the existing color of your teeth. Composite fillings tend to blend in well with the natural appearance of your existing teeth and therefore are less noticeable then older fashioned materials used. With this technique our dental health team employs a state of the art light system to harden filling material to fill the cavity space.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a form of dental restoration that fully caps over and protects a root canal treatment or dental implant. As part of root canal therapy, crowns are designed to protect the restored tooth by supplying support. Long term protection and prevention
Dental crowns are generally used for restoration purposes, but are also used in aesthetic procedures where a veneer is not suitable. A dental crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. By covering the tooth,it isable to restore its shape and size, strength, while improving its appearance.While providing support to a tooth’s structure, the crown also improves the overall bite. The crown, when cemented into place, will fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. What is a bridge?
A bridge is a form of dental restoration designed to provide additional support for teeth or implants. Traditionally made out of porcelain and metal, bridges are similar to crowns because they restore areas of the mouth where teeth have been extracted. Removable, a bridge restores the natural bite for ease and comfort while eating. A bridge can be anchored to existing teeth or an implant.
The dentist will recommend the optimum treatment based on the overall condition of your oral health and gums.
