At Cloverdale Dental Group in Etobicoke, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that has us aiming to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile would be considered restorative dental care.
Our dentists at Cloverdale Dental Group can help restore your smile – and your oral health – by repairing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth.
Depending on your issue, our dentists will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Our dentists use CEREC® technology to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in one single appointment to help restore your smile. No impressions or temporaries - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one easy visit.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentists at Cloverdale Dental Group use dentures to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures). They can also recommend replacing an entire jaw of missing teeth with full dentures. These artificial teeth allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly. Implant-supported dentures are another option. They are attached to implants in the jawbone.
We restore a tooth's function and appearance by placing a dental crown on a tooth that is too small for a filling. These porcelain caps are placed on top of teeth and can be used to attach bridges, prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating or to cover dental implants. They can also help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance. When cared for properly, crowns can last more than 10 years.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are used to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. These fillings bond to the tooth and support the remaining tooth structure. They can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, and may be used on both front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
When damage is too extensive to be filled by a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are required. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are indirect fillings, which means they are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
These natural-looking tooth replacements are custom-made and bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. They can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Diseased tissues, nerves and blood vessels must be removed from the interior of a tooth to prevent future problems. To accomplish this, your dentist will perform a root canal. By removing decay and bacteria, the spread of infection is stopped.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease infects the tissues of the mouth, including the alveolar bone, cementum, gingiva, periodontal ligament and gums. If the disease is detected in its early stages, your dentist will recommend non-surgical preventive therapy. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge joining your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. Disorder of this joint can cause several issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including pain. Our dentists can detect, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
