At Westport Dental in Port Moody, we offer a range of restorative dental services including fillings, bridges, crowns, dentures, and therapeutic Botox treatment.
What is Restorative Dental Care?
Restorative dental care includes any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile.
By repairing structural problems such as damaged or missing teeth, our dentists can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
Depending on your issue, the dentists at Westport Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are dental restorations that help restore the function and appearance of teeth. Crowns are placed on top of existing teeth while bridges are designed to replace a section of missing teeth.
Partial dentures are artificial teeth used to replace one missing tooth or several in a row. They allow patients with missing teeth to maintain their facial structure and talk and eat properly.
At Westport Dental, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or tooth damage, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage is too extensive for a standard dental filling. They are custom-made and are then 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 and prevent the need for an extraction and more extensive dental work.
Botox® is a purified protein that can be used in dentistry. When injected into the facial muscles, it prevents the muscles from contracting and helps them to relax. Using Botox, our dentists can help treat jaw pain and headaches and provide relief from clenching and grinding.
