To restore is to bring something back to its previous condition. That is the purpose of restorative dentistry, reinstating the natural appearance and function of your smile when something has gone wrong. Dr. Giulio Spagnuolo and his restorative and dental hygiene team at We Smile Dentistry in London, ON make the experience low stress and efficient.
Restorative dental care to repair damaged teeth
Tooth decay and trauma (chips, fractures, and pieces broken off) are common dental concerns. In many cases, these smaller issues can be restored with tooth coloured filling or dental bonding. This procedure is conservative – it preserves healthy tooth structure – and the restoration is sturdy and durable. The material blends with natural dentition and contains no mercury. Filling and bonding are single visit procedures.
For a larger area of damage, too big to support a filling, Dr. Spagnuolo may recommend an inlay or onlay. These porcelain restorations are cemented in place, strengthening tooth structure. A crown encases the visible portion of a prepared tooth with a cap made of strong dental ceramic material, allowing roots to remain intact. At We Smile Dentistry, you get the convenience of same day CEREC crowns. The restoration is precision milled from a block of zirconia, while you wait. You do not need a temporary crown or to come back for a follow-up appointment.
Full mouth reconstruction is a personalized approach to restore a mouth ravaged by long-term neglect, traumatic injury, chronic bruxism (clenching and grinding), or advanced gum disease. We work with you to understand contributing factors, then explain treatment options that fit your lifestyle, budget, and schedule.
Replacing missing teeth
Missing teeth can have a devastating impact on appearance and oral health. We offer several restorative options:
- Dental implants – A long-term tooth replacement choice. Learn more on the dental implants page of this website.
- Dental bridges – Artificial teeth anchored in place with crowns on adjacent teeth.
- False teeth – With various types of dentures available, this remains an affordable solution for many people. Removable partial dentures replace one tooth or several in an arch. Complete dentures are full upper or lower arches, and implant supported dentures are secure and comfortable.
