Dental Restoration in Calgary
Dental restorations treat issues that affect the health, function, and appearance of your teeth. Restorative treatments include treatments to repair damaged teeth, replace lost teeth, and restore proper function.
Cavities can affect the appearance and health of your teeth. Left untreated, cavities can grow larger and cause complications such as discomfort or infection. Fillings are used to repair cavities and restore the health and integrity of your teeth. Tooth-coloured fillings also restore the appearance of your tooth.
Dental crowns are used to completely restore a tooth that has been seriously damaged. The crowns are made of a porcelain or ceramic material that is designed to resemble your other natural teeth. Once it’s in place, your crown will feel and look natural and it will restore the function and appearance of your missing tooth.
We provide same-day crowns that can be produced and placed in a single appointment.
Inlays & Onlays
If a cavity affects the chewing surface of one of your molars, or if the damage to a tooth doesn’t require a dental crown, we may recommend an inlay or onlay to restore the tooth.
The inlay or onlay is designed in a dental laboratory and cemented into place in the tooth being treated. If we’re restoring the biting surfaces of the tooth, we’ll use an onlay, which is designed to withstand the extreme forces of biting and chewing.
Inlays and onlays are made of tooth-coloured porcelain or ceramic so they will blend in with your smile once they are in place.
If you are missing teeth, a dental bridge may be a good replacement solution for you. Dental bridges provide a replacement tooth, or teeth, plus they also strengthen and hold your remaining adjacent natural teeth in their proper positions.
The bridge consists of one, or more, artificial teeth that are attached to your existing natural teeth. The replacement teeth are designed to look like your natural teeth, and they are shaded to blend in with your smile.
We can provide same-day bridges using our in-office CEREC system.
