At Dentistry at Lifestyles in Midland, our dentists offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, and non-surgical gum therapy.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure used 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 overall dental and oral health.
Depending on your specific case, our team at Dentistry at Lifestyles will determine the best restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed over top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns can be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent further damage to a cracked or decayed tooth. These restorations can also help to improve the appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
A dental bridge is a natural-looking tooth replacement option that is bonded to existing teeth or dental implants. Bridges are colour matched to your natural teeth to provide you with a restoration that improves the function of your smile while being barely noticeable to others.
Our dentists at Dentistry at Lifestyles use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings discreet fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings that can be used to repair cavities when damage to the tooth 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.
Non-Surgical Gum Therapy
Gum disease (periodontal disease) is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If detected in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
A root canal is a common procedure performed by your dentist to remove 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 save a tooth that might otherwise need to be extracted.
