Restorative Dentistry & Dental Care
Our Toronto dentists provide a full range of restorative dentistry services to help restore your smile.
Dental bonding is used for many reasons, including the repair of chipped, broken or decayed teeth, to reshape or whiten your smile, or to fill in gaps between the teeth. Bonding can also be used to attach bridges, orthodontic appliances or fillings to the teeth.
First, a soft composite resin filling is scooped onto the teeth, and the dentist shapes it. A high intensity light is then applied to the resin, which hardens the material. Finally, the dentist polishes the surface to obtain natural looking appearance that blends with the tooth.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is permanently cemented over a tooth to restore its strength, shape and size, and alter its appearance. The crown will cover the visible portion of the tooth above and right at the gum line, once it is cemented into place.
Crowns are used to hold weak, broken or cracked teeth together to avoid further fracturing. Crowns are also used to support large fillings, attach a bridge, or cover discolored or deformed teeth. Crowns may also be placed over dental implants.
