Restorative Dentistry in Trenton: What is it?
Restorative dental services include any procedure that aims to restore the normal appearance and function of your smile when it has been impacted by health issues such as a missing, cracked, or decayed tooth.
By repairing issues affecting the structures of your teeth and gums, our dentists can help to restore your smile and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at our Trenton clinic will determine a suitable restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of a tooth to restore both its function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges to your smile, cover a dental implant or prevent a cracked or damaged tooth from losing its structural integrity. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants on either side of a gap in your smile to replace a missing section of teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Using the CEREC® dental technology, our dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in our patients' smiles in only a single dental appointment. No temporaries and no impressions are required.
At West End Dental Centre, we use composite fillings that are matched to the colour of your teeth to repair a cavity or tooth damage. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Root canals are a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, tissues, and nerves from the inside of a damaged tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection affecting the tissues of your mouth, including the gums, gingiva, cementum and periodontal ligament. If this disease is caught in its earliest stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will be determined by the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
