Repairing Structural Problems
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.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at The Hunt Club Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you. These options can include crowns, bridges and dental fillings.
We understand the importance of feeling confident in your smile, and our Ottawa dentists are committed to helping you achieve that goal through our restorative dental services.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. 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 The Hunt Club Dental Centre, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
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.
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). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and talk and eat properly.
A root canal is when 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.
