Restorative Dental Services
At Sheppard West Dental our dentists offer North York patients a range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures and gum therapy.
Rejuvenate Your Smile
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Following an examination, your dentist will identify your dental issue and recommend the most effective restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are hollow caps that are fitted over the top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns can be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing 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.
At Sheppard West Dental, our dentists use tooth-coloured composite fillings to repair cavities or tooth damage, such as cracks. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth, several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat properly.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
If you have an infected tooth, your dentist may recommend a root canal to relieve pain and restore the tooth's natural function. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help to halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum and periodontal ligament. If gum disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
