Keeping Your Smile Healthy and Beautiful
Your teeth are vulnerable to damage from injury or decay. If one or more teeth become damaged, dental restorations can restore their function and appearance.
Dental restoration is both an art and a science. Restorations are used to repair damaged teeth and restore lost teeth. This means they need to do two things: restore the strength and function of the damaged teeth, and restore the appearance of your smile. Modern restorations are made with advanced materials that are strong and durable and can be shaded and shaped to match your natural teeth. Learn more about the restorations we offer.Book Now
Fillings are used to repair cavities in teeth. The filling restores the function of the tooth and prevents it from further damage. We provide tooth-coloured composite fillings that match the rest of your teeth.Video: Filling
We use a crown to restore a badly damaged tooth. The crown fits over the injured tooth and completely covers and restores it. Crowns are available in a variety of styles and materials to suit your needs and budget.Video: Crowns
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are like large fillings. They are used in the same way to fill cavities, except they are created in a dental lab and cemented into place. We use them to restore a tooth that needs a bit more structural strength.Video: Inlays / Onlays
Bridges are used to replace gaps left by missing teeth. The bridge can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row. There are many types of bridges, but they all work by attaching artificial replacement teeth to your natural teeth.Video: Bridges
Frequently Asked Questions
Are metal fillings bad for me?
Metal, or amalgam, fillings have been used in dentistry for over 100 years. They are a safe, affordable, and long lasting treatment for repairing cavities in teeth. In recent years, there have been concerns raised about the mercury contained in amalgam fillings. Studies show that the tiny amount of mercury released from amalgam fillings doesn’t cause illness to patients, and they continue to be used in dentistry to repair teeth. If you have concerns about amalgam fillings, you may want to ask your dentist about composite fillings as an alternative treatment.
Can I whiten my crown, bridge, or tooth-colored fillings?
Whitening treatments generally only work on your natural teeth and won’t have an effect on restorations. Talk to your dentist to discuss options for changing the color of a restoration.
How long do crowns, fillings, and bridges last?
With proper care, most restorations can last for ten years or longer. Restorations are not as strong as your natural teeth, so you need to be careful eating certain foods.
