At Quadra Dental Centre in Victoria, we offer a range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that is designed to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile would be considered restorative dental care.
By fixing structural issues such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, our dentists at Quadra Dental Centre will decide the treatment options suited for your situation.
CEREC technology, allows our dentists to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays in as little as a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No temporaries or impressions needed - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in as little as one visit.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction.
These custom-made tooth replacements are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges can help restore the bite between upper and lower teeth, as well as the natural contour of teeth. Plus, they may be difficult to notice to the casual observer.
At Quadra Dental Centre, our dentists use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. Composite fillings may blend in with the natural shade of teeth and can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing. They can be used on both front and back teeth. Silver amalgam fillings are generally more durable and often reserved for back teeth.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge joining your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. Disorder in this joint can cause several issues with your jaw and facial muscles, including pain in your jaw, face or neck that persists, dizziness, ringing in the ears and teeth grinding or clenching. Our dentists can detect, diagnose and develop a custom treatment plan for TMJ Disorder to help relieve pain and restore your smile.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to help restore a stained or discoloured tooth to its natural appearance. They can also be used to attach bridges and prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. If cared for properly, they may last 10 years or more.
