Dental Restoration in Toronto
When damage does its course, a dental restoration is needed to restore healthy function and beauty. See how fillings, crowns, and bridges can make your teeth like new again.
When the enamel of your tooth is damaged by decay, a filling is usually needed to restore its structural integrity. We use composite resin fillings (white fillings) to give you a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing result.
Getting a composite resin filling is quick and easy. Depending on the size of the restoration, this procedure may take only 15 minutes and requires no anesthesia.
Getting a crown will help restore a natural appearance and function to your tooth if you’ve undergone a root canal or other restorative procedure. Your crown will likely be made of porcelain, created in a dental laboratory, and placed on the biting surface of your tooth.
A crown may also be used to cover a bridge or implant, or prevent further damage in a cracked tooth. They can help with cosmetic procedures to restore whiter coloring and better form.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays fill a cavity and restore function and beauty to your teeth. They are different from fillings because they are fabricated first in a lab and then cemented into place instead of being applied directly in a dentist’s office. An inlay goes alongside your teeth while an onlay goes over the biting surface and can withstand greater pressure.
If you’re missing some teeth and unable to get dental implants, a bridge might be the best option for you. Your bridge will be custom made to replicate natural teeth and held in place by anchoring onto your adjacent existing teeth or implants. Some bridges are permanent and can only be removed by a dentist while others can be taken out and cleaned at home. You and your dentist will work together to find out which option is best for you.
