Restorative Dental Services
At St. Laurent Dental Centre in Ottawa, our range of restorative services includes crowns and bridges, dentures, non-surgical periodontal therapy, and more to restore the appearance and function of your smile.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Our dentists may recommend one or more restorative dental care services to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
Restorative dental care services address structural problems such as unhealthy gums, TMJ issues and damaged or missing or missing teeth to restore your oral health.
Depending on your specific oral health issue, our dentists at St. Laurent Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. Dental crowns can restore the function of a damaged tooth by covering the tooth with a strong and natural-looking porcelain cap. Crowns can also help to restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If periodontal disease is diagnosed in the early stages, our dentists will recommend non-surgical gum therapy to help restore your oral health and prevent more severe dental issues from developing.
At St. Laurent Dental Centre, we offer mercury-free and amalgam-free fillings to treat decayed and problematic teeth. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. A custom-made dental bridge can restore the natural contour of your teeth and the bite.
Inlays & Onlays
If you have a tooth that is too damaged to be repaired by a regular filling, our dentists can use inlays and onlays. These tooth-coloured porcelain fillings are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row (partial dentures), or a whole jaw of missing teeth (full dentures). Dentures allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, speak and eat normally.
A root canal procedure eliminates decayed and damaged pulp from the interior of a damaged tooth. The tooth is then filled with medicated dental materials, restoring its function, and preventing the need for an extraction.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. TMJ disorder can cause painful issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
