You can trust Dentistry @ 150 Eglinton East for comprehensive general dentistry services – including fillings for cavities, crowns and bridges, dentures and root canals – and we stand behind our work.
At Dentistry @ 150 Eglinton East, we are big advocates of preventative care to help maintain good oral health. Regular check-ups and care routines at home can stop minor issues from becoming bigger ones. From fillings and crowns to bridges and root canal therapy – our patients have a wide range of general dentistry options available to them. Below you'll find the what, when and whys of our General Dentistry Services.
Fillings are recommended if you have decay (a cavity), a cracked or damaged tooth, or if a current filling needs to be replaced. We use bonded fillings for cavities which are made of a composite resin that's similar in colour to your teeth. This helps your filling blend in more naturally with your teeth compared to the traditional silver amalgam fillings.
A dental crown is a restoration technique that completely covers a tooth, providing it with structure and support. Made of porcelain, zirconia or metal alloys, crowns are used in cases where a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or another dental procedure.
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching to the remaining natural teeth on either side, in order to 'bridge' the gap between them. A bridge not only helps to create a beautiful smile, but also operates as a space maintainer by preventing natural teeth from shifting or rotating into the space created by missing teeth.
Dentures are one of most cost-effective options when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Dentures can be used to replace one missing tooth, or as many as all of your teeth. There are two types of dentures – Full and Partial.
Full dentures replace all of the teeth in the top and/or bottom section of your mouth, and are usually made from acrylic with acrylic or porcelain teeth. Full dentures can be combined with implant therapy for a more comfortable and secure fit.
Partial dentures can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, and are generally made from a combination of acrylic and metal.
A root canal is necessary when a tooth has developed, or is very likely to develop, an infection in its inner soft tissue. This type of infection cannot clear up on its own, and therefore, dental intervention through a root canal is necessary in order to maintain good oral health, and prevent future infections from developing.
