What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that has the intention of restoring the normal function and appearance of your smile.
These procedures will help repair certain structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your overall oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Cornwall Dental Care will determine which restorative treatment option may be right for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that fit snuggly over the top of the existing teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. These can also help alter the appearance of the teeth by hiding stains and minor concerns.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are fairly discreet and are able to restore the natural contour and bite between the upper and lower teeth.
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 has the chance to repair the tooth and potentially save it from extraction.
At Cornwall Dental Care, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from daily use and are able to be completed on any teeth within your mouth.
