Turn to Bonnie Doon Dental Clinic in Edmonton for fillings, crowns, and bridges. Do you have missing or damaged teeth? If so, crowns and bridges can help improve the appearance of your smile by correcting shapes and alignments and helping fill dental gaps. A dental crown or a dental cap is a type of restoration appliance that completely caps your tooth or implant. If you have a deep cavity that is posing a threat to your tooth and spreading to its root, you can use a crown. Crowns are also used on teeth with large fillings. Although treatment varies depending on the condition of your teeth, we’ll explain the procedure at the beginning of your treatment. Dental cement is used to bond a crown to your teeth. If it’s possible to use a crown to improve the appearance of your tooth, our dentists can help you get one.
A crown is used to restore a fractured tooth, cover a dental implant, or cover a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment, while a bridge is typically used when you’re missing one or more teeth. Porcelain and ceramic crowns and bridges can be matched to the natural colour of your teeth.
A dental bridge is a replacement tooth that fills the space between teeth to make everyday activities, such as eating and talking, easy. Bridges are for one tooth to multiple teeth and they are made of metal, ceramic (porcelain), or a combination of both. You may need one visit or multiple appointments for the entire process to be completed, depending on the condition of your teeth. If you’re looking for a dental clinic in Edmonton to get dental bridges, you’ve come to the right place.
When your tooth has a cavity, a filling is required to strengthen it and prevent harmful bacteria from spreading from it to your other teeth. Our dentists would be more than happy to help you determine whether or not a filling is necessary, and we offer both amalgam and composite fillings, depending on your needs.
Dental fillings are used to repair cracked or decayed teeth. Sometimes it is difficult to detect tooth cracks, especially when the cracks are invisible and there is no pain or sensitivity involved. Even X-rays aren't able to detect these cracks in some cases. However, during periodic dental check-ups, your dentist will be able to discover a tooth crack, if there is any. More often, cracks reveal themselves rather quickly. Some of the signs that indicate a cracked tooth are:
Pain while biting down
Periodic intervals of pain
Pain while eating or drinking
Dental Bonding and Composite Fillings
Whether your tooth is chipped, broken, or cracked, our office offers dental bonding and composite fillings to restore your smile. Dental fillings are used to treat cavities and to repair cracked, worn-down, or broken teeth. An anesthetic is used to numb the area before treatment, so you don’t have to worry about pain. We will clean out the decay before restoring the tooth with the help of composite or amalgam filling. Finally, a bite check will be done to make sure you are comfortable with your teeth alignment.
People often think it is not necessary to visit a dentist unless a cracked tooth pains. However, it is necessary to get even minor tooth cracks fixed as early as possible to avoid complications in future. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
