Restorative Dental Services
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentists can help restore your smile - and your oral health - by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Upper Ottawa Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
A root canal is a dental procedure in which diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth. Your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and avoid the need for extraction by removing decay and bacteria.
To repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings at Upper Ottawa Dental. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from chewing stress and can be used on both front and back teeth.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are fitted over teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to secure bridges, cover dental implants, or prevent the progression of a cracked tooth. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are tooth replacements that should look natural and are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges should be barely noticeable because they are custom-made and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They help patients with missing teeth to keep their facial structure and speak and eat normally.
