Like any part of the body, the teeth can become damaged over time, with wear and tear, or due to disease, injury, or other circumstances. Restorative dentistry focuses on giving you back as much capacity as possible, helping you chew, speak, and smile confidently, even after dental challenges.
Dental bonding can help make minor repairs to teeth when they become damaged. A strong material called composite resin that is matched to the colour of your tooth is applied, shaped, and then cured. Bonding can be used to repair chipped, broken, or discoloured teeth.
Dental implants can be a comfortable and permanent solution for tooth loss. They can be used for some or all of the teeth, depending on how extensive your tooth loss is. Implants closely mimic the look, feel, and function of the natural teeth.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge works by securing a pontic (an artificial tooth) into the space where a tooth is missing. Bridges can be an excellent solution to restore minimal tooth loss.
Dental fillings are a common technique used to repair small damage to the teeth, including cavities that are formed when the hard outer shell of the tooth is damaged or decayed. It’s important to have fillings repaired as soon as possible to ensure that bacteria does not reach the tooth roots and cause an infection.
Inlays and Onlays
When a crown is not necessary, but a filling is not quite enough to strengthen and protect a tooth, our dentists may use inlays and onlays. Both types of prosthetics are manufactured outside the mouth using molds of your teeth, then applied to the affected tooth and cemented in place. They can be an excellent option to repair damaged teeth.
When tooth loss affects your life negatively, dentures can be an excellent solution. Dentures often give patients a renewed sense of confidence in their smile and can help with biting, chewing, and speaking clearly.
