Our dental team offers restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, and gum therapy at our North York dental clinic, to help restore the function and appearance of your smile.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Sheppard Yorkland Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns can be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a damaged tooth from becoming worse. They can also help to restore the appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Sheppard Yorkland Dental, our dentists use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing and are suitable for use on front or back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth designed to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). These versatile tooth replacement options help patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure, and to talk and eat naturally.
During a root canal procedure, your Sheppard Yorkland dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of an infected tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an 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 uncomfortable or even painful issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, which can include the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If gum disease is detected in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
