Restorative dentistry allows you to enjoy your favourite foods, smile with confidence and improve your oral health.

How Your Teeth Become Damaged

The enamel of your teeth is, astoundingly, even harder than your bones. Though that may make it seem indestructible, your teeth are prone to becoming damaged. Most often, we find that decay is the common cause. Tooth decay is a problem that affects all ages. You may also have had an accident such as a sporting injury that affects your oral health. If you’ve been avoiding dental care for some time, you may have experienced resulting damage to your smile.

No matter what the reason is behind your less-than-optimal oral health, our team will provide the care you need without judgment. Below, you can read more about our restorative dentistry options, which include

Are you wondering which of these options might be right for you in restoring your beautiful smile? Read more below to learn about each and which situations they’re appropriate for.

Dental Implants to Replace Teeth

At Dental On falconer you will be referred to an Oral Surgeon to have the implant placed.

One missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or all of your teeth: any amount can be replaced thanks to revolutionary dental implants. The advantages of them include that they blend in with your normal teeth, they are extremely durable and long-lasting and function just like a natural tooth would. The procedure is as follows:

Stage 1. You’ll have a titanium dental implant surgically placed into your jawbone by an Oral Surgeon. Then, a healing period of 3-6 months must be allowed for the surgical site to heal.

Stage 2. After the healing period, you can embark on the next step of treatment for dental implants. This phase is when you’ll return to Dental On Falconer and have a dental crown, bridge or a set of dentures attached to your dental implant(s). For single teeth replacements, a crown will be affixed. Multiple teeth can have a bridge, and nearly all or all your teeth are easily replaced by having dentures placed on your implants.

Dentures That Suit Your Needs

Our modern dentures are available in a wide variety of types, shapes and sizes. We’ll work with you to design your perfect denture to exact specifications. If you’re missing all of your teeth, you’ll want full dentures. If you have healthy teeth left in your mouth, a partial denture may be the best solution.

The materials we use include acrylic, metal, combination or Valplast. Valplast is a newer material that doesn’t require metal clasps going around your teeth. Patients love how comfortable they are!

Crowns and Bridges Help You Smile Again

A dental crown is also called a cap. It goes over a tooth that has been damaged to give it greater strength.

A dental bridge is made up of two or more dental crowns. When affixed together, they look like a bridge that can fill the gap left by a missing tooth. The end crowns are attached to the vital teeth that neighbour the gap, while the middle ones are suspended into the open space.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

A dental filling is a commonly performed procedure that all ages can require. Rather than the older, silver fillings of days past, we use composite resin fillings. These fillings are tooth-coloured so that they blend in with the rest of your smile. When applied, it adheres to the tooth and fills in a cavity or area of damage, restoring your smile.
