At Evergreen Dental in Dartmouth, our full range of restorative dental services help you improve the function and appearance of your smile, from fillings, bridges and crowns to gum therapy.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to achieve the normal appearance and function of your smile falls under restorative dental care.
By fixing missing or damaged teeth and other structural issues, our dentists can help restore your smile, your confidence, and your oral health.
Depending on your problem, our dentists at Evergreen Dental will create a treatment plan customized to your needs.
Crowns are often used to prevent a cracked tooth from deteriorating, attach bridges or cover dental implants. These porcelain caps are placed over teeth to restore their function and appearance. They can also help to restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural whiteness.
Bridges are custom-made, natural looking tooth replacements that replace a section of middle teeth. These barely noticeable dental restorations are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth and can restore the bite between upper and lower teeth, as well as the natural contour of your teeth.
At Evergreen Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings are used to repair tooth damage such as cracks or cavities. The constant stress of chewing shouldn't affect your fillings, which can be used on both front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
When tooth damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling, inlays and onlays are permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece to repair cavities. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory.
The removal of diseased blood vessels, tissues and nerves from the interior of a tooth is known as a root canal. Removing bacteria and decay helps prevent the spread of infection or the need for an extraction - a last resort.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
When tissues of the mouth are infected, including gums, alveolar bone, cementum, gingiva and the periodontal ligament, gum disease develops and can impact your overall health. If caught in its early stages, your dentist will recommend preventive therapy. Treatment will depend on severity and type of disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Disorder of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which connects your jaw to your skull's temporal bones, can potentially cause several issues with your facial muscles and jaw, including pain and teeth grinding. Your dentist can test for, diagnose and create a custom treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
