Restorative dentistry is used to treat a wide range of dental problems, from a single broken tooth to complete oral reconstruction. Your smile operates as a unit, so when there’s a problem with even one tooth, your overall oral health begins to suffer. One missing tooth can eventually change your entire bite, for instance. That’s why we offer such a comprehensive collection of restorative dentistry procedures. We want your smile to be in the best possible shape.
The restorative dentistry care offered at our Brampton dental office includes:
For those who are interested in metal-free, mercury-free restorative dentistry care, we offer tooth-colored composite resin fillings. For over 150 years, silver amalgam has been used to fill cavities. This metal mixture isn’t very cosmetically appealing – you can see dark spots on your teeth where the amalgam fillings were placed. Also, these fillings can contain up to 50% mercury. While the fillings are very small and therefore do not contain much mercury in a relative sense, why risk exposure to this highly toxic material? Tooth-colored composite resin fillings are made of a silicon dioxide-filled plastic mixture that offers strength and cavity care while keeping your smile looking its best and protecting your health. If you’ve got old amalgam fillings you would like replaced, we can do that for you as well. We believe that all dentistry should be as cosmetic as possible, and our restorative dentistry lives up to this belief with tooth-colored fillings.
Another common restorative dentistry care technique is the use of dental crowns. Dental crowns are crafted to look like teeth and are placed over your tooth to fix whatever type of problem you’re experiencing. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or metal, although many people prefer the porcelain options for their more appealing appearance. Which we choose for your treatment will depend partially on your specific oral health needs as well as your desires for your smile. Dental crowns can be used when a tooth is cracked or broken, to cover a tooth after root canal therapy, to anchor a dental bridge, or to replace a tooth.
Most people will need some form of restorative dentistry care during their lifetime. There’s no need to be embarrassed if your smile is damaged. Our only desire is to help you regain self-confidence and a healthy smile with treatment at our Brampton dental office. Contact Torbram Dental today for an appointment. We fix smiles from Mississauga, Georgetown, Woodbridge, and other surrounding communities as well. Don’t hesitate to get the treatment you deserve!
Are you missing just one or two teeth in one spot? Are the teeth on either side of the gap relatively healthy? You might want to consider a dental bridge from our Brampton dental office for your tooth replacement. Held in place by dental crowns, fixed bridges are non-removable, offering a more permanent option compared to a partial denture. This helps you avoid the embarrassing slippage that can come with a partial denture. If you’re interested in dental implants, a bridge can be affixed to dental implants instead of anchoring to neighboring teeth.
If you’re missing teeth, we very much encourage tooth replacement. Missing teeth can cause a chain reaction that will eventually cause major problems for both your oral and overall health. If you’re in Brampton, Mississauga, Georgetown, Woodbridge, or surrounding communities, contact Torbram Dental for an appointment to discuss tooth replacement with Dr. Vince Fava. By providing dentures, partials, fixed bridges, dental implants, and implant-supported dentures, Dr. Fava makes sure you’ll be able to make the right choice for you.
