Repair Structural Issues
Restorative dental services include any procedure that is designed to restore your smile as close to it's normal function and appearance as possible.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dental team can help restore your smile – as well as your oral, and overall health.
We offer a variety of procedures to help restore your smile's appearance and function. Services designed to restore your oral health include procedures such as dental crowns, bridges, fillings, root canals, dentures, and more.
Depending on your dental concerns, the dentist at Hollick-Kenyon Dental can determine the right restorative treatment option that will best suit your needs.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Dental crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants, or prevent a cracked tooth from further damage. They also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Since they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between the upper and lower teeth.
At Hollick-Kenyon Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage. These fillings can be used on front and back teeth, and can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard filling. They are custom-made in a dental lab and then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Both types of dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and eat and speak properly.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
A root canal is a procedure in which your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria found within the tooth, your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and prevent the need for a tooth extraction.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose, and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
