Prevention is undoubtedly better and more cost-effective than the cure when it comes to ensuring your ongoing dental health.
Sometimes however, teeth deteriorate and break – meaning we must restore the area and restore normal function. This can be done via a root canal procedure or with dental crowns, amongst many other restorative dentistry techniques. Restorative dental treatments today encompass all the disciplines that dentistry has to offer. That’s where our expertise and experience in these disciplines enable us to achieve the best possible long-term results for all our patients.
What Does Restorative Dental Care Include?
Restorative dental care may can include a variety of treatments, including:
- Tooth whitening
- Root treatments
- Crowns & Bridges
- Plastic gum surgery
- Bone grafting and gum rebuilding
Alongside the treatments listed above, dental implants, periodontal treatment, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics and endodontics all play a key role in getting the best restorative results for our patients.
Root Canal Treatments
Root canal treatment is used to treat infection at the centre of a tooth. This centre is called the root canal system – hence the name – and is filled with soft tissue. This connective tissue helps to nurture the root of your tooth during your early development, but is unessential in adult life.
Dental Crowns Service
You may also hear crowns being referred to as ‘caps’. This is an adequate description of what a crown does to. It sits on top of an existing tooth, restoring the shape, function, colour and size of your original tooth. You would choose a crown if:
- You have had root canal treatment
- Your tooth is vulnerable to decay
- You have a discoloured tooth
- You are generally unhappy with a certain tooth’s appearance
- Your tooth is misshapen
- Your tooth affects the way you bite and eat your food
- You wish to improve the appearance of a filling
