Restorative Dental Services
At Valley Centre Dental Clinic in Whitecourt, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, gum therapy, dentures, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure with the goal of restoring your smile's normal function and appearance.
By repairing structural problems such as missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Valley Centre Dental Clinic will find the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. While they often cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from further deteriorating, crowns can also be used to attach bridges or restore a stained tooth to its natural appearance.
During a root canal, your dentist removes diseased nerves, tissues and blood vessels from a tooth's interior. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help block the spread of infection and prevent the need for an extraction. A crown or filling will then be added to restore the tooth's function.Learn More
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to dental implants or existing teeth to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are hardly noticeable and can restore the natural shape of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Valley Centre Dental Clinic, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair tooth damage, including cracks and cavities. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the continual stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to fix cavities when a standard dental filling would be insufficient to repair extensive damage. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory, then the single piece is cemented to the tooth.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in its early stages, your dentist will suggest preventive therapy. Otherwise, treatment methods will depend on the type and severity of the disease.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull. If this joint becomes misaligned or disordered, a host of issues with the muscles in your face and jaw can appear, including painful symptoms. Our dentists can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Dental implants are placed as part of the process to replace a missing teeth and restore your smile. A dental implant, combined with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
