Fix Damaged or Missing Teeth With Restorative Dentistry in Winnipeg, MBRestorative Dentistry at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
The restorative dentistry benefits people in all sorts of fashions from the standpoint of it can be comfortable, it can be more functional, it can certainly be more aesthetic. The old amalgam fillings are basically black holes in people's teeth—not done anymore. We can make teeth that look like teeth and function like teeth. For people that want to have smaller cavities taken care of, they're virtually done so that you can't see what we've actually been doing. For some people that have larger restorations, again, by the time we're finished, they look like natural teeth. They don't look like teeth that have had big fillings put in them. There's an appreciation from the restorative standpoint that it functions, it's more comfortable, and it's more aesthetic for them. From the other aspects of the restorative dentistry, we have people that have bite problems. It's how they chew and eat and function, it isn't the proper position. So by restoring how the teeth are functioning together, we also change how they fit and function. So when you get the proper function and the bite is right, things are comfortable. It makes a big difference to how people feel.

Choose From Several Tooth Replacement OptionsDoctor Justin Diamond on restorative dentistry Read Transcript
Patients missing teeth, there's options such as removable dentures, dental implants, or bridges.
They can always leave the space without the teeth as well.
Patients with damaged teeth, there's options as well. We can try and restore the teeth through general restorative dentistry, by doing a filling, or we can look to do something a little bit more invasive, a little bit more complex where we can start going into complex prosthetics, whether it is crown and bridgework, whether it is implants as well. But the end of the day, we want to make sure the patient is happy and comfortable with the choices they have and knowing that there are choices to every option and every problem that they present.
Dental implants have a bio-friendly titanium root that securely anchors to your jawbone. Call your Winnipeg, MB dentist today to book a consultation so we can help you find the best option for treatment.
Fixed bridges are sometimes used to replace missing teeth. A bridge will hold your replacement tooth securely between two adjacent teeth.
Dentures can be created at Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB. We can also use dental implants to keep your dentures securely retained or supported.
Repair Damaged Teeth With Dental Restorations
Tooth-coloured fillings are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Your dentist will likely recommend repairing minor tooth decay with a filling.
Dental crowns can be used repair teeth after more extensive damage. A full dental crown covers an entire tooth, and a partial crown – an inlay or an onlay – covers just a portion of a tooth.
Dental veneers can repair teeth with the damage that is more cosmetic, such as small chips and cracks, grooved enamel, or discolouration. We offer both porcelain and ceramic dental veneers.
Root Canal Therapy Can Save an Infected Tooth
While dental decay on the outside of your tooth is bad enough, it becomes much more problematic if decay and bacteria move past the surface of your tooth into the pulp inside and cause infection. The infection destroys your tooth from the inside out and is often painful.
Fortunately, our dentists can perform a root canal treatment and likely save your tooth! They will clean out the inside of your tooth, removing the pulp and the infection, then fill your tooth to help prevent it from becoming infected again. The last step is to strengthen your tooth by covering it with a dental crown.
Get Your Restorative Dental Care in Comfort
Before your root canal or other restorative procedure, we will numb your mouth with local anesthesia. In addition, our staff can help you feel more comfortable with:
- Televisions and headphones so you can focus on music or a favorite show instead of your procedure
- Blankets in case you get chilly in our chair
We also offer inhaled sedation and oral sedation.
