Damage to teeth can occur for a variety of reasons, requiring restorative care to return the teeth to a state where they can properly function. Westwood and Starwood Dental is able to provide a variety of restorative dental services for your family, including:
If a tooth begins to decay, our family dentist in Guelph will remove the decayed area and fill it with a composite resin. This will help prevent the decay from spreading further and will allow the tooth to regain some of its original strength.
At Westwood and Starwood Dental, we usually take about an hour from start to finish. Our dentists start with a thorough examination of your mouth using dental instruments to examine the cavity. An X-ray of the teeth may also be taken to determine the extent of tooth decay.
Dental fillings are among the simplest dental procedures. Our fillings are made of composite materials like gold, silver, porcelain or amalgam. They can be used to fill up the faults and cavities within your teeth. Applying dental fillings can be a painless procedure when carried out by your family dentists in Guelph.
A dental bridge will allow you to fill a gap caused by a missing or extracted tooth. Using the two teeth on either side of the gap as support, the dentist will insert an artificial tooth into the area to fill the gap and allow you the comfort of a full set of teeth.
Dental bridges can help prevent the teeth on either side of the missing tooth from shifting. It focuses on maintaining jaw structure and is a pretty quick procedure.
Crowns are most commonly used in circumstances where a tooth has become badly damaged and needs to be restored. However, they can also be used for cosmetic purposes to improve the look of teeth.
Crowns will fit over the natural tooth, improving its strength, longevity and appearance. It immensely helps if you want to make your smile and tooth set more attractive.
