What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes procedures that aim to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help to restore your smile and overall oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at West Coast Family Dental will determine the best restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. We use crowns to attach bridges, cover dental implants, and prevent a cracked tooth from further damage. They can also help 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. Since bridges are custom-made, they are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of your teeth and the bite between your upper and lower teeth.
At West Coast Family Dental, we use tooth-coloured composite fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one or several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat as usual.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in its early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
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, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
