Tooth decay is one of the most common problems treated in general dentistry. Patients are realizing that tooth-colored fillings offer a number of advantages over amalgam fillings. By using composite resin rather than dental amalgam, we avoid risks such as an unattractive, unnatural appearance, leaking, and subsequent damage due to the expansion of filling material in the tooth. Mercury-free fillings are more aesthetically pleasing, and are also very durable.
When a large portion of the tooth structure has been damaged, we may recommend a dental crown. This full-coverage restoration preserves natural tooth structure by buffering the force of chewing. Crowns may be made from a number of different materials, including gold, zirconia, and porcelain. Many patients choose durable, lifelike porcelain-fused-to-metal, or PFM crowns, to restore strength to damaged teeth.
Root canal therapy
Tooth infection can be a serious issue that ultimately causes the loss of a natural tooth. To avoid this consequence, your Burlington dentist can perform root canal therapy. The procedure removes infected material from the center of the tooth. After they have been sterilized, the canals are filled with inert material, which will inhibit bacteria from entering in the future. The treated tooth is restored with a dental crown, which can last several years with good care.
We understand that root canal therapy may make you anxious. Please know that your comfort and satisfaction are important to us. Several options for sedation are available. Ask us about them!
Teeth help us to chew our food and are an important part of our smile, hence we do all that we can to avoid extractions. However, certain situations warrant this procedure. Extensive injury to a tooth, or impaction of wisdom teeth may result in the recommendation for extraction. The procedure is performed with gentle techniques as well local anesthetic, so you should feel no discomfort during treatment. Before your procedure, full details will be provided to you so you know what to expect during and also after the tooth removal process.
