Restorative dental procedures contribute to your overall oral health by resolving problems in your teeth as they arise. Many restorative procedures aim to treat, protect, strengthen and beautify damaged or decaying teeth.

All-on-4® Dental Implants
This restorative technique is an option for full, permanent teeth replacement. In an All-on-4® dental implant procedure, four to six dental implants are installed to hold a full arch prosthesis. This is a more permanent solution than full or partial dentures.
When tooth decay is not severe enough for a root canal, dental bonding may be used to repair and seal the tooth. Bonding is inexpensive and less invasive than other restorative procedures but may be less durable over time.
With dental bridges, damaged teeth or missing teeth can be replaced by a false tooth, usually held in place by a crown on the nearest tooth or teeth. Dental bridges can fully restore the functionality and look of the natural teeth.
Dental crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. After preparing the natural tooth in question, a crown is placed over it to protect the remaining tooth material and restore the look, feel, and function.
Dental implants are a permanent option for replacing teeth, especially when tooth decay becomes extensive and requires teeth to be extracted. An artificial tooth is implanted with a titanium post that integrates with the bone of the jaw.
Dental fillings are used to fill cavities before tooth decay has an opportunity to spread. Although metal amalgam fillings may be used, tooth-coloured fillings made from composite resin can provide support and strength to the remaining tooth structure and an aesthetic effect.
Dental Inlays & Onlays
Often used as a long-lasting alternative to fillings, crowns, or other dental restorative procedures, dental inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental laboratory and bonded onto the teeth to protect a damaged tooth from further decay.
