Restorative Dental Care
Restorative dental care encompasses any procedure that aims to restore your smile's regular function and appearance.
By repairing your mouth's structural issues, damaged or missing teeth, our dentist can help you to restore your smile and your oral health too.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Riverside Family Dentistry will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth in order to restore both their function and appearance after damage or disease. Crowns are often used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent cracks in teeth from growing worse. Crowns can also help to cover discoloured or stained teeth and maintain their natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that bond to existing teeth or dental implants with the goal of replacing 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 Riverside Family Dentistry, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities and tooth damage such as cracks. These fillings can withstand the moderate pressure of constant chewing and can be used on front and back teeth.
Root canals are procedures where a dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from inside a tooth. By removing bacteria and decay, your dentist can stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for the extraction of a tooth.
