If your teeth is burdened by gaps, silver fillings that have gone wrong, or chipped teeth, you may be uncomfortable by the state of your teeth or self-conscious. Restorative dentistry may be your answer. Restorative Dentistry and if needed – cosmetic dentistry procedures – can improve the health of your teeth as well as the appearance of your smile.
Fix Old Fillings – The inside shows on the outside
Results were less than favorable when silver fillings (amalgams) were used in the past. The problem with this earlier treatment is it left you with discolored teeth. Silver fillings are inclined to let moisture in which results in a darkened tooth. When this happens, the filling expands and the tooth can even crack.
If the appearance of your old mercury fillings is making you hide your smile – there are additional reasons to have them replaced aside from aesthetics. Your health could be in jeopardy! Eventually over time with wear and tear, mercury fillings break down and begin corroding in your mouth. They can also expand over time and they tend to crack or break your teeth.
Today there are tooth colored resin composites or porcelain to replace fillings. You can restore your teeth’s original strength and color, returning your smile back to its youthful appearance.
Dental Crowns Kelowna: Porcelain Restorations for Cracks and Chips
Dental crowns are used to restore chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth. Crowns are caps that cover the entire tooth. They can strengthen a damaged tooth and restore its appearance, especially in alignment and shape.
Veneers: Porcelain Restorations for Gaps
If you have malformed or twisted teeth, unattractive gaps or deep discolouration our porcelain veneers may be the answer. Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that fit over and are then bonded to your teeth. They look untreated and natural and are made from the most advanced dental ceramic available.
Porcelain veneers work wonders for fixing discolored, crooked or chipped teeth or filling unwanted spaces in your teeth.
Bridges: Porcelain Restorations for Gaps
Bridges, on the other hand, “bridge” the gap between two teeth. Bridges also stops your remaining teeth from moving into the empty spaces. This can prevent tooth decays, a misaligned bite, gum disease, or temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ disorder or TMD).
