What is Restorative Dental Care?
Any procedure that aims to restore the normal function and appearance of your smile falls under the category of restorative dental care.
Our dentists address problems such as damaged or missing teeth, and by performing reparative procedures, we can help restore your smile – and your oral health.
The dentists at Pure Dental will determine the right restorative treatment option for you, depending on your needs.
Dental Crowns & Bridges in Kamloops
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth to restore their function and appearance. Crowns are used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from sustaining further damage. They can also help to bring a natural appearance back to a discoloured or stained tooth.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that are bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Bridges are custom-made for each patient, and are therefore minimally noticeable. They can also restore the natural contour of teeth and the bite between upper and lower teeth.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy in Kamloops
Gum disease is an infection of the tissues of the mouth, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, and periodontal ligament. If detected in the early stages, preventive therapy will be recommended. Otherwise, treatment will depend on each patient's gum health needs.
Dental Fillings in Kamloops
At Pure Dental, our dentists use amalgam (silver-coloured) and composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair a cavity or other damage to a tooth, like a crack. These fillings can withstand moderate pressure from activities such as chewing, and can be used on front and back teeth.
Inlays & Onlays in Kamloops
Inlays and onlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities when the damage exceeds the capabilities of a standard dental filling. They are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are then permanently cemented to the tooth as a single piece.
Root Canals in Kamloops
During a root canal, your dentist will remove 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.
