What is Restorative Dental Care?
The intent of restorative dental care is to repair structural problems such as damaged, diseased, or missing teeth.
Restorative dental procedures work to restore both the function and appearance of your smile.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Barrhaven South Dentistry will determine the right restorative treatment option for you and create a customized treatment plan.
Crowns are small porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their overall function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are adhered to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are discreet and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Barrhaven South Dentistry, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities and tooth damage such as cracks and chips. Fillings can withstand pressure from the stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist will remove diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
