Restore Your Smile with Crowns, Bridges or Dental Implants in St. John’s
Without effective oral hygiene, your teeth will suffer. You may get cavities or chip your teeth during a fall. Damaged and decaying teeth can cause other oral health issues and need to be taken care of quickly. Restorative dental procedures are utilized to save your damaged or decaying teeth and prevent complete tooth loss. If you’ve already lost teeth from such damage, there are also restorative options that will help you attain a full smile once more. Our typical restorative dental procedures include:
- Crowns are used to cover or cap your damaged tooth or teeth. Your existing tooth remains in your mouth to act as foundation to the crown, but needs to either be reduced or built up.
- Bridges are used to fill gaps in your smile. Literally a bridge between your teeth, a bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth that replaces your missing tooth and is connected on either side to your adjacent teeth.
- Implants are also used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically fused to your jawbone and acts as a root for a prosthetic tooth. After healing, an abutment is attached to the implant and a crown or other type of prosthesis is attached to the abutment to replace your missing tooth.
