Restorative Dental Services
At Souris Family Dental in Weyburn, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures and same-day restorations.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile is considered restorative dental care.
By fixing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, the dentists at Souris Family Dental can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, our dentists can determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Our dentists use CEREC® technology to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No temporaries or impressions - just tooth-coloured, mess-free restorations in one easy visit.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that joins your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause numerous issues with your facial muscles and jaw, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can detect, diagnose and develop a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Used to cover dental implants, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening or to attach bridges, crowns are porcelain caps placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance.
Custom-made bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. They can restore the natural contour of a tooth, as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth. Plus, they are barely noticeable and made to fit your mouth.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings and silver amalgam fillings are used to repair tooth damage such as cracks and cavities. While composite fillings blend in with the shade of your natural teeth and can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, amalgam fillings are more durable and often reserved for back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
These artificial teeth can be used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to speak and chew properly. Dentures also prevent natural teeth from becoming misaligned, which can negatively impact your oral health.
Inlays & Onlays
Used to repair cavities when damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings that are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece. They are typically used on molars and premolars.
Diseased tissues, nerves and blood vessels need to be removed from the interior of teeth to prevent further damage. To accomplish this, your dentist performs a root canal. By removing bacteria and decay, the dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
