Dental restorations repair damage to your teeth that has been caused by decay or injury. We provide modern restorations that are shaded to match the colour of your smile while restoring the function and appearance of your teeth.
Fillings are the traditional treatment for cavities caused by tooth decay. Composite or metal fillings restore the structure of the tooth while protecting it from further decay.
Crowns restore teeth that are badly decayed, damaged due to injury, or that were treated with root canal therapy. Crowns are a complete restoration that covers the whole tooth and restores its appearance and function.
Inlays & Onlays
Large cavities cannot always be repaired with fillings, so we use a special restoration called an inlay to restore the tooth. Inlays resemble fillings, but they are produced in a dental laboratory and cemented into place in the affected tooth. Once in place, the inlay provides structural support to the tooth and protects it from infection.
Onlays are a special type of inlay that restores the cusps, which are the biting parts of your teeth. Because they need to restore your biting strength onlays are specially designed to be very strong.
Bridges are designed to replace a missing tooth or multiple adjacent missing teeth. The bridge consists of the replacement tooth (or teeth) and is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. Bridges can be attached with crowns or other methods.
CEREC is a dental technology that allows us to produce ceramic dental restorations on a production system in our office. CEREC is popular with many patients because it doesn’t require impression trays, the ceramic can be matched to the natural colour of your smile, and the restorations can often be designed and placed in a single appointment.
