What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Our dentists can help restore your smile - and your oral health - by repairing structural issues such as damaged or missing teeth.
We offer a range of services including dental crowns and bridges, fillings, dentures, and more.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Expressions Dental Care can determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns in Richmond Hill
Crowns are porcelain caps that are fitted over teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to secure bridges, cover dental implants, or prevent the progression of a cracked tooth. They can also help to restore the natural appearance of a discoloured or stained tooth.
Dental Bridges in Richmond Hill
Bridges are tooth replacements that should look natural and are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges are barely noticeable because they are custom-made and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Dental Fillings in Richmond Hill
To repair a cavity or tooth damage, such as a crack, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings at Expressions Dental Care. These fillings should withstand moderate pressure from chewing stress and can be used on both front and back teeth.
Full & Partial Dentures in Richmond Hill
Dentures are artificial teeth that are used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth in a row (partial dentures), or an entire jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). They enable patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and properly speak and eat.
Inlays & Onlays in Richmond Hill
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings that are used to repair cavities that are too large for a standard dental filling. They are made to order in a dental laboratory and permanently bonded to the tooth as a single piece.
Root Canals in Richmond Hill
A root canal is a dental procedure in which diseased blood vessels, nerves, and tissues are removed from the interior of a tooth. Your dentist can help stop the spread of infection and avoid the need for extraction by removing decay and bacteria.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy in Richmond Hill
Gum disease is an infection of the mouth's tissues, which include the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is detected early on, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment will be determined by the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment in Richmond Hill
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to your skull's temporal bones. TMJ disorder can result in a variety of problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face, including painful symptoms. TMJ Disorder can be tested for, diagnosed, and treated by our dentists.
Same-Day Restorations in Richmond Hill
Our dentists can use CEREC® technology to create and place porcelain crowns, inlays, and onlays in a single dental appointment to help restore your smile. There are no impressions or temporaries; just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in a single visit.
