At Got Smile Dental Centre in Napanee, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and root canals.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure with the goal of restoring the normal function and appearance of your smile falls under restorative dental care.
By repairing missing or damaged teeth in addition to other structural problems, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Got Smile Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Composite (tooth-coloured) composite fillings are used to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. Our dentists at Got Smile Dental Centre recommend these fillings because they can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Dentures, Implants & Overdentures
Dentures and implants allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly. They can prevent natural teeth from becoming misaligned and causing other oral health issues.
Crowns are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. These porcelain caps can help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance. They can also be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening and protect it from further damage.
Custom-made bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. They can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth. Plus, because they are made precisely for the patient's mouth, they are barely noticeable.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are custom-made, tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are created in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Your dentist performs a root canal to remove diseased nerves, blood vessels and tissues from the inside of a tooth. By removing the bacteria and decay, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the mouth's tissues, including the cementum, periodontal ligament, alveolar bone, gingiva, and gums. If this disease is detected in its early stages, non-surgical preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that joins the temporal bones of your skull to your jaw. The disorder of this joint can cause several 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.
