Restorative Dentistry in Ottawa: What is it?
Any procedure with the goal of restoring the normal function and appearance of your smile falls under restorative dental care.
By fixing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentist can help restore your smile – in addition to your oral health.
Depending on your issue, our dentist at Bearbrook Dental Centre will determine the appropriate restorative treatment option for you.
These porcelain caps are placed atop teeth to restore their function and appearance. Used to attach bridges, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening or to cover dental implants, they can also help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are custom-made, natural-looking tooth replacements that your dentist bonds to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. These barely noticeable restorations restore the natural contour of your teeth and bite.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial or "false" teeth used to replace either one missing tooth, several consecutive teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They help patients with missing teeth maintain their natural facial structure, and to chew and speak properly.
This procedure involves removing diseased blood vessels, tissues and nerves from the interior of a tooth. By removing bacteria and decay, your dentist can help stop infection from spreading and prevent the need for a tooth extraction - a procedure that may cause other issues in the future.
At Bearbrook Dental Centre, composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are used to repair damage such as a crack or a cavity in a tooth. These fillings are popular as they can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, and can be used on both front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
We use these custom-made tooth-coloured porcelain fillings when damage is too great for a standard dental filling. These restorations are made in a dental laboratory, then permanently fitted to your tooth as a single piece. They are generally used on molars and pre-molars.
