What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure designed to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile and oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Artistic Smiles will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to help restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges should be barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace a missing tooth or several in a row, or a whole jaw of missing teeth. They should allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and speak and eat properly.
A root canal is when your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the inner tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
At Artistic Smiles, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings should withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
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 lab and are then cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
