What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure with the goal of restoring the normal function and appearance of your smile is classified as restorative dental care.
By fixing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore not only your smile, but your overall oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Dental One will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
These porcelain caps are applied to the tops of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Used to prevent a cracked tooth from worsening, attach bridges or cover dental implants, crowns can help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Custom-made bridges are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. These natural-looking tooth replacements can restore the bite between upper and lower teeth and the natural contour of teeth. Plus, they are barely noticeable.
We repair cavities and damaged teeth with composite fillings (tooth-coloured) using hard tissue dental lasers. Composite fillings can tolerate moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing and are typically used on both front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
At Dental One, our dentists can use dentures to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures, or "false teeth"). They help patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to speak and chew properly. Plus, once your dentures are placed, you'll enjoy a full, healthy smile that will help you chew foods that make up a nutritious diet.
Inlays & Onlays
Sometimes a tooth is too severely damaged for a standard dental filling to be sufficient. This is where inlays and onlays come in. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to your tooth as a single piece.
Diseased blood vessels, tissues and nerves need to be removed from the interior of your tooth to prevent further oral health issues. To accomplish this, your dentist performs a root canal procedure. By removing bacteria and decay, your dentist helps stop the spread of infection.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the tissues of the mouth, including your gums, cementum, alveolar bone, gingiva and periodontal ligament. If your dentist detects the disease in its early stages, non-surgical preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the severity and type of disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge joining your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. Disorder in this joint may cause a number of issues with your facial muscles and jaw, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can detect, diagnose and provide a custom treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Our dentists can use CEREC® technology to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment, helping to change your smile.
