Dental restorations are one of the most common dental treatments.
The most frequent restoration procedures are fillings for the treatment of cavities. Other restorations are used to strengthen or improve the appearance of teeth with:
- Fillings that need replacing
Different solutions and materials can be used, depending on the tooth’s location and your clinical situation. We may recommend direct composite, amalgam or standard ceramic.
Thanks to technical and technological advancements, we’re now able to design and make ceramic and zircon restorations right here in our clinic. And we can install them in a single appointment. CEREC technology is often used to make crowns, inlays and bridges.
Since CEREC solutions are made using precise digital dental impressions and computer-aided technology, they are both attractive and comfortable.
Veneers are usually used for cosmetic rather than functional reasons. They are thin shells that are cemented to the front of teeth to improve the look of your smile. At the same time, they help protect and reinforce teeth.
Why choose veneers?
- Close a gap between teeth
- Change the shape or length of a tooth
- Correct tooth alignment
- Cover a discoloured or slightly damaged tooth
Crowns are like small hats used to completely cover a damaged tooth. They are stronger than veneers and a better choice for more involved repairs.
Crowns are frequently installed after a root canal or if a tooth’s strength has been compromised by large cavities or cracks. This cosmetically appealing option reinforces the tooth’s natural structure and prevents it from deteriorating.
Full crowns can also be installed on dental implants.
Ceramic inlays and onlays are often used instead of a resin or amalgam filling to repair large cavities in molars and pre-molars.
In addition to being attractive and durable, inlays and onlays are very strong and can resist pressure from chewing, changes in temperature, and wear and tear.
