Weyburn Dental Restoration
Dental restoration is a collection of straightforward procedures that are intended to restore the appearance of teeth.
Over time, our teeth become worn and damaged from everyday usage. Exposure to the elements in combination with the consumption of acidic foods and beverages can lead to the decay of the teeth.
We offer the following types of dental restoration:
Cavities are small holes that form in the enamel of your tooth as a result of decay. This can be fixed by removing the decay and filling the hole with a new material like porcelain.
If a tooth has experienced extensive damage, a crown may be necessary. A crown is a dental restoration that completely surrounds the existing tooth, restoring tooth function and relieving pain.
When the biting area of the tooth is damaged, we can fix it by neatly bonding a piece called an “inlay” over the damaged area after the removal of decay. Inlays are used when the damage is more extensive than a filling can handle, and they provide superior durability and fit.
This is similar to an inlay, but is used when damage is more extensive. It covers more of the tooth, but is often preferred to a crown for its ability to maintain existing tooth structure.
If a tooth is lost to damage or extracted by the dentist, a bridge may be necessary. There are different ways to construct a bridge, but they are all similar in concept. A dental “bridge” is a supportive connection between a crown and surrounding teeth.
