Fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures and gum therapy are just a few of the restorative dental services that we at Acadian Smiles provide in Meteghan.
What Is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes procedures aimed at restoring your smile's normal function and appearance.
Our dentists can help you restore your smile — and your oral health — by repairing structural issues like damaged or missing teeth.
Based on your unique concerns, the dentists at Acadian Smiles will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are affixed to the tops of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to hold bridges in place and keep a cracked tooth from getting worse. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained teeth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth to replace a section of a missing tooth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore both the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Acadian Smiles, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and they can be used on both front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures) or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat properly.
Inlays & Onlays
When the damage to a tooth is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are used to repair the cavity. These tooth-colored porcelain fillings are made to order in a dental laboratory and are permanently cemented to the tooth in one piece.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help 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, which include the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, your dentist will likely recommend preventive therapy. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
Using Primescan intraoral scanner technology, our dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No impressions, no temporaries — just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one easy visit.
