Bridging the Gaps in Your Smile
Our teeth are naturally designed to withstand a lot of use. However, time, injury, diet, and other factors can take a toll on our teeth.
However, time, injury, diet, and other factors can take a toll on our teeth. Restorative dentistry is used when the teeth need to be strengthened or replaced. Our team at Nose Creek Dental Centre performs a wide range of restorative dentistry services in Airdrie. Our goal is to help you focus less on what’s going on in your mouth and more on what life has to offer.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
While individual dental implants can help close the gaps in your smile, All-on-4® dental implants provide us with an excellent permanent option for the replacement of a full arch of teeth. In cases of advanced tooth loss that may require full replacement, All-on-4® allows us to insert four to six dental implants into the upper or lower jaw and secure a beautiful prosthetic arch of teeth to the implants for a fully restored smile.
When a filling won’t quite be robust enough and a crown is excessive, dental bonding can often be used to provide the correct level of strength for the restoration of a tooth. Tooth-coloured bonding materials start out soft and are hardened, allowing us to mould them into an ideal shape. This treatment is an affordable and cosmetically appealing treatment option for large cavities and other structural defects in the teeth.
When tooth loss affects you, the dental team at Nose Creek Dental Centre can provide you with durable and attractive dental bridges to “fill the gaps” in your smile. Dental bridges are pontics (false teeth) that are held in place by the natural teeth, dental crowns, or dental implants. If you suffer from tooth loss, reach out to us to book a consultation and see if dental bridges are a good restorative option for you.
Even with careful at-home and in-office oral health care routines, the tooth enamel sometimes breaks down and leaves you with cavities. We can provide you with composite or amalgam fillings to prevent the spread of cavities, which can lead to more severe tooth decay and more complex treatments. Be sure to keep up to date on your dental examinations to catch cavities early!
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are designed in a dental laboratory to be perfectly fit over your teeth. These restorations fit over the top of the tooth, providing you with a solid and stable biting surface. Using modern technology, we can design inlays and onlays to match the current or former structure of your teeth, leaving you with an intact and evenly coloured smile.
Venlay Restorations are used to correct a variety of problems in the teeth. Unlike crowns and veneers, Venlay Restoration does not require the natural tooth to be ground down. This leaves you with more of your teeth structurally intact, but with the added benefits and strength of the restorations. Venlay can also be used to correct uses such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites.
Nose Creek Dental Centre is pleased to offer single-day CEREC crowns in our Airdrie dental office. CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. The CEREC technology allows us to design, manufacture, and secure beautiful, customized dental crowns, all without you leaving the dental chair!
