Restore Teeth and Gums With Restorative Dentistry Services in Edmonton

Restorative dentistry treatments allow dentists to repair, reinforce and sometimes replace your teeth to maximize their function and health. If teeth are damaged, decayed or missing, it can become more difficult to bite down, chew and speak. It can even cause your surrounding teeth to shift, your gums to recede, and your oral health to decline.


This is why Heritage Dental Centre offers restorative dentistry solutions. We can help your teeth look, feel and be healthy. We can also repair and prevent further damage caused by teeth grinding or bruxism.

Here are some of the treatments we offer and their restorative benefits.

Crowning a tooth is an effective way to restore its shape, appearance and function following a break or restorative treatment. A hollow, artificial tooth is used to encase the natural tooth above the gum line. Once it’s cemented in place, the crown reinforces the tooth and protects it from further damage and decay. A crown can also be used to cover a misshapen or discoloured tooth.

This dental fixture can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Typically, a bridge is composed of one or more artificial teeth fused between two crowns. If enough healthy teeth don’t flank the gap in your mouth, crowns can be anchored to dental implants instead. Once the crowns are secured, this tooth-coloured fixture is permanent and imperceptible.

If one or more teeth need to be replaced, dental implants are the ideal solution. The procedure to install an implant involves surgically placing a titanium screw in the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. Once you’ve healed from the surgery, a small metal post called an abutment is attached to the implanted fixture. An artificial tooth or a dental bridge can then be secured to the abutment.

This treatment can be used to salvage an abscessed tooth. If the dental pulp inside a tooth becomes infected, it can cause intense pain and swelling. During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed and the tooth then preserved. Following the procedure, the tooth will require a crown.

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth damaged by cavities. A cavity is a small hole on the surface of a tooth caused by the erosion of enamel. To prevent further decay, the damaged tissue gets removed and the hole is filled with a durable, amalgam metal or tooth-coloured resin. Composite fillings are also used to restore the look of chipped, cracked and misshapen teeth.

These devices are sometimes used as an alternative to a crown or conventional filling. An inlay is a custom-shaped filling created in a dental laboratory to repair a hole, crack or break in a tooth. An onlay is also custom made, but it’s cemented to the top of a tooth and used when the chewing surface is damaged or missing.
