Restorative Dental Services
At Village Lane Dental Centre in Okotoks, we offer a full range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, gum therapy, and TMJ treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure with an aim to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems like missing or damaged teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Village Lane Dental Centre will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their appearance and function. Crowns are used to cover dental implants, attach bridges or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening. They can be used to help restore a discoloured or stained tooth to its natural appearance.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
At Village Lane Dental Centre, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can be used on front and back teeth and can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing.
Partial & Implant-Supported Dentures
Dentures are tooth replacements of one or multiple consecutive teeth. They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their face structure, and talk and eat properly. They can be designed to conform to your mouth or be retained and supported by an implant.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities with damage that is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are always custom-made in a dental laboratory and are permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
A root canal is a procedure where your dentist removes diseased blood vessels, nerves and tissues from the interior of a tooth. By removing the decay and bacteria, your dentist can help halt the spread of infection, preventing the need for an extraction.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease is the infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. If the disease is caught in the early stages, preventive therapy is recommended. Otherwise, treatment methods will vary depending on the type and severity of the disease.
Using CEREC® technology, our Okotoks dentists can create and place porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays in one easy visit to help restore your smile.
No impressions, no temporaries - just tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations in single dental appointment.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
The temporomandibular joint (or TMJ) is a hinge connecting your jaw to the skull's temporal bones. The disorder of this joint can cause a number of issues with your jaw and the muscles in your face, which can be painful. Our team can test for, diagnose and provide a treatment plan for TMJ Disorder.
