Repairing Structural Concerns
Restorative dental care includes any procedure intended 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 your oral health.
We offer a variety of procedures to help restore your smile's appearance and function. Services designed to restore your oral health include procedures such as dental crowns, bridges, fillings, root canals, and more.
Depending on your issue, your team at Township Road Family Dental Centre will work with you to determine the right treatment options for you.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria within the tooth, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
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 are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
Crowns are porcelain or gold full coverage restorations that are placed on top of teeth that are too damaged for a regular filling. Usually they are recommended for teeth with extensive caries, fractures, cracks, or those who have been root canal treated. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or even help prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or strained tooth to a more natural appearance.
At Township Road Family Dental Centre, we use varying dental restorative materials to repair teeth that have defects due to processes such as caries or trauma, for example.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are gold or tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair carious teeth or broken teeth as an alternative to a regular direct filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the patient's tooth as a single piece.
