Restorative Dental Services
At Robie Street Dental Centre, we offer a wide range of restorative dental services to our Halifax patients, from fillings, crowns and bridges to inlays & onlays, dentures and TMJ treatments.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care encompasses any dental procedure which restores the normal appearance and functions of your smile.
By repairing structural problems like missing or damaged teeth, our dentists are able to help restore your smile, and your oral health along with it.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Robie Street Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured fillings made from porcelain which are used to repair damage from cavities which is too extensive for a standard dental filling. These are custom-made in a dental laboratory and then permanently cemented to your teeth as a single piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth which are used to replace one or several missing teeth in a row (referred to as partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (called full dentures). They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly.
Crowns are caps that are crafted from porcelain and placed on top of your teeth in order to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are often used to attach bridges, prevent a cracked tooth from worsening, or cover dental implants. They can also assist in restoring a stained or otherwise discoloured tooth to its natural look.
Bridge are natural-looking replacements for teeth which bond to existing teeth or dental implants in order to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Robie Street Dental Centre, we use composite, amalgam and silver fillings to repair tooth damage from decay or cavities. All of these filling options are able to withstand moderate pressure from the stresses of chewing, and can be used on front or back teeth.
Root canals are a procedure wherein your dentist removed diseased tissues, nerves and blood vessels from the interior of a tooth. By removing the bacteria and decay associated with this material, your dentist is able to help to halt the infection's spread and prevent the need for extracting the tooth.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. The disorder of this joint can cause a host of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
