What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure performed with the aim of restoring your smile's normal function and appearance is considered restorative dental care.
By fixing structuring issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on the problem, our dentists at Demmings Dental Group will determine the appropriate restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. These porcelain caps are used to cover dental implants, attach bridges or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Natural-looking dental bridges are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of teeth that are missing. These custom-made tooth replacements are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of the teeth, and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Tooth-coloured composite fillings are used to repair a cavity or damage to a tooth such as a crack. These fillings are able to withstand mild to moderate pressure due to the continual stress of chewing and can be used on both front and back teeth.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from a tooth's interior. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive 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.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and talk and eat properly.
Our dentists at Demmings Dental Group can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment using CEREC® technology. No impressions or temporaries required - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one visit.
