The Highgate Medical Dental clinic in Burnaby specializes in restorative dental procedures that will dramatically improve the appearance and function of your smile.
Restorative dentistry procedures offered at the Highgate Medical Dental clinic include:
Crowns, a type of synthetic cap typically made from porcelain, are used to restore a tooth’s appearance and function. Crowns are beneficial when a tooth has become so decayed that large portions must be removed.
A dental crown can be used when attaching bridges, covering implants, or preventing a cracked tooth from more damage. In addition, crowns can be applied on top of a tooth to recover the natural appearance of a stained or discoloured tooth.
Bridges are custom-made, natural looking dental appliances that are used to replace a section of missing teeth. If gaps between teeth are left unfilled, they may cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and result in collapse of your bite.
Bridges help to restore the contour of teeth and can improve the bite between upper and lower teeth, reduce the risk of gum disease, and even improve speech. Bridges can last as long as 10 years or more, when properly maintained.
Thanks to modern dental materials, silver fillings are a thing of the past. Metal fillings may be durable, but they look far from natural.
Tooth-coloured fillings are not only extremely strong and wear-resistant but also almost impossible to tell from real enamel.
Replacing old silver fillings with these new, natural looking materials can take years off your smile by erasing evidence of past dental work.
