We can restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. Dental restorations repair the damage and restore the look and function of your teeth.
Cavities result from tooth decay. They can be uncomfortable, and they can put the soft inner tissue of your teeth at risk of infection. We repair cavities with fillings. Depending on your specific situation we may recommend an amalgam or tooth-coloured filling.
Sometimes decay or injury can damage a tooth beyond repair with a filling. When this happens, we restore the tooth with a crown. The crown fits over the entire tooth, and it is shaped and coloured to match your other teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
When a molar is too damaged to be repaired with a filling, but it doesn’t require a crown, we may recommend an alternative treatment with an inlay or an onlay. These restorations repair the damaged area of the tooth and provide structural support. Inlays and onlays are produced in a dental laboratory and cemented in place in the tooth being treated.
A bridge is used to restore a tooth that has been completely lost. Bridges can restore a single missing tooth, or they can be used to restore two or more adjacent teeth. Once the bridge is in place it restores the appearance of your smile.
