You'll find a comprehensive range of restorative dental services at dentalhouse, from fillings to TMJ treatment.
Restoring Your Smile
At dentalhouse, our dentists can help restore your smile's normal function and appearance with restorative dental services.
Restorative Dental Care
Restorative dental care covers any procedure that aims to restore your smile's normal function and appearance.
By repairing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
The dentists at dentalhouse can assess your specific dental issue and determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Porcelain crowns are placed on top of teeth to restore stained, discoloured or damaged teeth to their natural function and appearance. Dentists can attach bridges to crowns, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening or use them to cover dental implants. Crowns are typically the best option when a tooth is so decayed or damaged that large portions of it must be removed.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that may be bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth.
These dental restorations are discreet in appearance and can help to restore the natural contour of teeth, as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth. They can also help to restrict the movement of other teeth, preventing certain oral health issues or dental complications.
Dental crowns and bridges are available at each of our five locations.
Full & Partial Dentures
Often known as complete dentures or false teeth, full dentures replace an entire jaw of teeth. They can be either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are placed after all teeth have been removed.
Immediate dentures are typically considered a secondary solution until conventional dentures are created. Immediate dentures are made in advance of and placed following a tooth extraction. The dentists at our Toronto, Oakville and Woodbridge locations can fit eligible patients for full dentures.
If you are missing more than a few teeth, partial dentures may be your best option. These removable dentures are made of replacement teeth attached to a pink-coloured plastic base, which is connected by a metal framework. This holds the denture in place inside the mouth.
During a root canal procedure, your dentist removes diseased nerves, tissues and blood vessels from the interior of a tooth. Your dentist can help stop infection from spreading by removing bacteria and decay.
This procedure may prevent the need for a tooth extraction and is less invasive than having a tooth removed. Our dentists at any of our five locations can examine your mouth and tell you whether you need a root canal.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The hinge connecting your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull is your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Disorder in this joint can lead to several potential issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face.
Symptoms may include jaw pain or tightness, severe headaches and other painful symptoms. The dentists at our Oakville location can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
At dentalhouse's five locations, we use composite tooth-coloured fillings to repair tooth damage such as a cavity or crack. These fillings are able to withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Composite fillings are popular as they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth, making them a good option for fillings that may be visible when you speak or smile. If only one tooth is impacted by decay, the filling treatment can be completed in as little as one hour.
Amalgam fillings are typically placed on teeth that endure a lot of wear and pressure due to chewing.
More versatile than newer composite materials, they are made with silver, mercury, copper and tin.
Inlays & Onlays
Larger than a standard dental filling, an inlay can be used to fix decay in the fissures and pits of a tooth. They fill space between cusps of a tooth's surface.
Due to their strength, inlays can be placed on molars in addition to front teeth. Aesthetic inlays can be created from porcelain or composite material to improve the natural appearance of your smile.
Onlays are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece. They are often the best option when a dental crown would be considered excessive. They cover one or more cusps of a tooth. In some cases, they cover a tooth's entire biting surface.
Typically, onlays are stronger than a dental filling and will last longer - up to 30 years with proper care.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease can infect the tissues of the mouth, including the gingiva, gums, cementum, bone and periodontal ligament. If your dentist detects the disease in its early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
