At Downtown Dental of Hamilton, we offer a range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and same-day restorations.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care is the process of restoring your smile to its normal function and appearance.
Our dentists can help restore your smile and oral health by fixing structural issues like broken or missing teeth.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Downtown Dental of Hamilton will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that cover the top of your teeth to restore their function and appearance. They can be used for covering bridges, dental implants, or cracks on a tooth from getting worse. They also restore a tooth's natural colour.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that can be bonded to existing teeth or dental implants. They restore the bite between upper and lower jaws, as well as restoring a patient's smile with its custom design.
At Downtown Dental of Hamilton, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable artificial teeth used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row (partial dentures) or an entire jaw (full dentures). They help patients with missing teeth to keep their facial structure and speak and eat normally.
Inlays & Onlays
When the damage to a tooth is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair it. They are made to order in a dental laboratory and then cemented to the tooth in one piece.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the interior of the tooth. By removing decay and bacteria, they can help halt the spread of infection. This also helps prevent the need for extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection that affects the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament in the mouth. Your dentist will recommend preventive therapy if the disease is detected early. Otherwise, the disease's type and severity determine the treatment options available to you.
Our dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single dental appointment using CEREC® technology to help restore your smile. No impressions or temporaries. Only tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations.
