Restorative Dentistry

Misshapen, broken, chipped, crooked or decayed…your teeth are a record of your experiences.  With restorative dentistry it is never too late to correct past mistakes or accidents and at Mends Street Dental we focus on restoring your natural teeth.  Our restorative dentistry services include:

Crowns and Bridges  Restoring teeth with dental crowns and/or Bridges improves the appearance and strength of damaged, decayed, fractured or weakened teeth (such as teeth that have been Root Canal Treated or have lost large fillings).  In many cases, a crown is the most effective way to save and strengthen a tooth.

Tooth-coloured Fillings  Unsightly silver fillings are a thing of the past.  At Mends Street Dental we use composite resins to create tooth coloured fillings that match the shape and shade of your original teeth.

Root Canal Therapy  A Root Canal, is the process of removing the nerves from the roots of a tooth and is often necessary to save an infected tooth.  An access point is made through the top, biting surface of the tooth.  Through this point the canals of the tooth are cleaned and shaped in preparation for being filled material with an inert material and then sealed. The tooth is now ready for a restoration if necessary, which is usually a crown.

Implants  Dental Implants allow the replacement of missing teeth with a substitute tooth that looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth.  Dental implants are made from titanium or a titanium alloy, and is essentially a substitute for a natural tooth root.  Each implant is placed into your jawbone in the location of the intended replacement tooth.  A replacement tooth is created as a crown and replacement teeth as a set of crowns or bridges or dentures which are then anchored to the implant or implants.
