At Pickering Village Dental in Ajax, we offer a range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure with the goal of restoring your smile's function and appearance would fall under the category of restorative dental care.
By fixing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
At Pickering Village Dental, our dentists can diagnose oral health issues you may be experiencing, then determine the proper restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns can help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its original shape and size. These porcelain caps are placed on top of teeth and are often used to attach bridges, or repair broken, fractured or decayed teeth. Crowns are used when fillings or other types of restorations may not be suitable. They are generally durable and custom-made to match the size, shape and colour of your existing teeth.
Custom-made bridges are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. These non-removable appliances are attached to teeth on both sides of the gap, 'bridging' the space. These tooth replacements serve to restore the natural contour of teeth, in addition to the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are used to repair a cavity or damage to a tooth affected by decay, cracks, fractures and more. Our dentists at Pickering Village Dental can place fillings that will be placed, shaped and polished, restoring your tooth to its natural shape and function.
Full & Partial Dentures
These artificial teeth are used to replace one missing tooth or several consecutive teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures help patients with missing teeth to talk and eat properly, as well as maintain their facial structure.
Inlays & Onlays
When a tooth is severely damaged on the surface to be repaired with a standard composite dental filling, inlays and onlays are often used. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Diseased nerves, blood vessels and tissues need to be removed from the inside of a tooth to avoid the spread of infection or the need for an extraction. By removing bacteria and decay, your dentist can help avoid further harm to your oral health.
