Restorative Dentistry You Can Depend On
Teeth are strong. Enamel itself is the strongest substance in your entire body. But when damage like cracks or cavities come into play, your tooth can start to break down from everyday wear.
To preserve your smile, avoid additional damage and return your bite to normal function, we offer a variety of different restorations. The material choices — like composite and porcelain — aren’t just durable; they also enhance the appearance of your teeth!
Minimally Invasive Dentistry
When at all possible, we strive to incorporate the least-invasive restorations for your teeth. That strategy means treating problems as early as possible before they expand deeper into your tooth structure.
For instance, a small white filling requires less tooth alteration than a full-coverage crown. If we locate your cavity during a routine checkup, we can repair the lesion while it’s localised to one area of your tooth. But skipping checkups or putting off care allows the decay to spread…not just into the current tooth, but adjacent teeth as well.
Basic Overview of Dental Restorations
Some of the most common restorations used in dentistry include
Fillings — Tooth-coloured composite restorations that fill in small areas of decay.
Crowns — “Caps” that cover your tooth up to the gums, providing reinforcement for biting and chewing.
Inlays and Onlays — A restoration that’s more durable than fillings but covers less surface than a crown.
Bridges — Multi-tooth restorations that fill in the gap caused by missing teeth.
Dental Implants — Permanent restorations that mimic tooth roots, to support fixed crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dentures — Removable multi-tooth partials or “plates” for affordable and efficient replacement.
