What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile is considered restorative dental care.
Our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health – by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth.
Drs. Daniel McKenna & Robert Dunphy's team will determine the best restorative treatment option for you based on your issue.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are fitted over teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to secure bridges, cover dental implants, and keep a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are tooth replacements that try and 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 allow patients with missing teeth to keep their facial structure and properly speak and eat.
To repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack, Drs. Daniel McKenna & Robert Dunphy's team can use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from chewing stress and can be used on both front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings that are used to repair cavities that are too large for a standard dental filling. They are made to order in a dental laboratory and permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a dental procedure in which diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth by your dentist. Your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and avoid the need for extraction by removing decay and bacteria.
Our dentists can use CEREC® technology to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. There are no impressions or temporaries; just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in a single visit.
