Restorative Dental Services
What Is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes procedures that aim to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile.
Our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health, by repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth.
Depending on your dental issue, our Guelph dental team will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of a tooth to restore its function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants, or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. Dental crowns can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Since bridges are custom-made, they are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the severity and type of the disease.
Endodontics (Root Canals)
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 can help stop the spread of infection, and prevent the need for a tooth extraction.
At Green Meadows Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity 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.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental lab and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat correctly.
At Green Meadows Dental, our dentists can create a customized treatment plan that includes any of the restorative and cosmetic dental services available at our clinic. This comprehensive plan will helps us to complete all of the procedures you need in fewer appointments.
