What is Restorative Dental Care?

Any procedure designed to restore the normal function and physical appearance of your smile would be considered restorative dental care.

From reducing pain caused by cavities and cracks to repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, we can help restore your smile and your oral health.

Our dental team understands that each case is unique, so depending on the issue, they will work to determine the restorative treatment option that fits your needs the best.

Root Canals

A root canal is a procedure in which diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth. Since decay and bacteria are being eliminated, root canals allow your dentist to deter the spread of infection and prevent the need for a future extraction.

Full & Partial Dentures

Dentures are artificial teeth that can replace one or more missing teeth (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They let patients who are missing teeth preserve their facial structure, and talk and eat normally.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are caps made of porcelain and placed on top of your teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or support a cracked tooth. They can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.

Dental Bridges

Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that bond to existing teeth or dental implants as a way of replacing a section of missing teeth. Being custom-made, bridges are hardly noticeable and help restore the natural contour of teeth, as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth.

Dental Fillings

At Uptown Dentistry, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or damaged tooth, such as a cracked tooth. These fillings are designed to withstand pressure from the continuous stress of chewing, and can be applied to front and back teeth alike.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard filling. After being custom-made in a dental laboratory, the single piece is permanently cemented to the damaged tooth.

TMJ Disorder Treatment

Your jaw is connected to the temporal bones of your skull by a hinge known as the temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). A disorder of this joint often causes a number of issues involving your jaw and facial muscles, which can cause painful symptoms.
