At Sturgeon Creek Dental in Winnipeg, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, and more.
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile would be considered restorative dental care.
By repairing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Sturgeon Creek Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
A porcelain crown is placed on top of a tooth to restore its function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are hardly noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Sturgeon Creek Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to fix damage such as cracks and cavities in teeth. These fillings can endure moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth. They also closely match the colour of your teeth.
Amalgam fillings are more versatile than newer composite materials and are often placed on teeth that receive a lot of pressure and wear from chewing. Made with mercury, silver, tin and copper, they are less likely to fracture due to their high durability. They are also budget-friendly.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth.
The space will then be cleaned thoroughly, then filled with medication. A crown or filling will be added to help restore function to the tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
Non-surgical gum therapy includes root planing and scaling. This treatment can be enough to reverse milder forms of gum disease.
Dental scaling removes plaque from a tooth's surface, just below the gum line. Root planing reaches deeper under the gum line to smooth surfaces of the tooth roots. This process allows the gums to reattach properly.
Larger in size than a standard dental filling, inlays repair cavities or decay in fissures and pits of a tooth. Their purpose is to fill space between cusps of a tooth's surface.
Inlays can be made from composite or porcelain material and are strong enough to be placed on molars as well as front teeth.
Onlays repair damage to a tooth's cusps and in some cases can cover a tooth's entire biting surface. Onlays are ideal for when a patient has lost too much tooth enamel for a dentist to use a standard filling, but not damaged enough to warrant a crown. In general, dental onlays last for a longer period of time than a dental filling - up to 30 years.
Also known as false teeth or complete dentures, full dentures are a good option if you are missing an entire jaw of teeth.
They can be made for your upper or lower jaw, and held in place with the help of an oral suction or adhesive. They also allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to talk and eat correctly.
Your dentist will likely use partial dentures if you are missing more than a few teeth.
These are made of one or more artificial teeth and held in place by either a dental crown or clasps that fit your natural teeth.
