At Quadra Dental Centre in Victoria, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims 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 determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
CEREC® technology, allows our dentists to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. No temporaries or impressions needed - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in one easy visit.
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.
These natural-looking, custom-made tooth replacements are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges can restore the bite between upper and lower teeth, as well as the natural contour of teeth. Plus, they are barely noticeable.
At Quadra Dental Centre, our dentists use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack. Composite fillings are popular for their ability to blend in with the natural shade of teeth and withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing. They can be used on both front and back teeth. Silver amalgam fillings are even 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 relieve pain and help improve 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 permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to 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 can last 10 years or more.
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.
