Bridges and Crowns
Crowns are custom-made restorations that either completely cover a structurally compromised tooth or are placed atop a dental implant. They are made of either ceramic or gold.
A bridge is a fixed prosthetic that fills in gaps between teeth. It is either supported by the teeth on either side of the gap, fitted to them like crowns, or made to bridge between dental implants.
Dental fillings are used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractured, or missing tooth structure.
Composite (tooth-coloured fillings) are the most common type of filling placed today, and can closely match the colour of your natural tooth to provide a strong and aesthetic restoration.
Missing a tooth or teeth may impact your ability to chew the way you want to and the look of your teeth. Dental implants provide a great alternative to bridges and dentures.
Made of titanium and precisely placed where the tooth was lost, the dental implant functions much like a tooth root, allowing a crown, bridge or denture to be affixed to it and restoring function.
Preventative care works best when it starts early. About six months after your baby's first tooth appears, they should be seen by the dentist.
Kids three and up should be seen every six months for preventative appointments. This is critical to maintain oral health, modify damaging habits, and diagnose issues such as tooth decay early enough to allow for non-restorative interventions.
Root canals are tooth-savers! For teeth that are badly damaged by decay, disease or trauma, root canals are like a rescue-line, preserving a tooth that would otherwise be extracted.
A root canal removes the infected or inflamed nerve, preventing the spread of infection and protecting the tooth from future re-infection, by filling the root canal space with a sealing material.
While our goal is to preserve teeth wherever possible, sometimes a tooth must be removed. This may be because it is non-restorable, to address crowding or malposition issues, severe periodontal disease, or infection.
Regardless of the reason, we will make the procedure as comfortable as possible, either in our office or with a local oral surgeon.
