Hamilton Dental Restoration
Restoring your smile
Even with a regular dental routine, dental decay is a still a common problem that left untreated can lead to other more serious issues. At Old Villa Dental Center we can help.
A filling is a plastic metallic compound that is inserted in the tooth after a cavity has formed. The cavity occurs when a build-up of plaque and tartar around the tooth dissolves its protective enamel. The dentist will then remove the cavity, clean the area and fill it.
These are used when a tooth is heavily filled or was previously treated with a root canal. Crowns provide strength for the tooth while improving the overall appearance.
A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces missing teeth. Your dentist will reduce the size of the adjacent teeth, which act as supports. There is a limit to the length that teeth can be bridged, as there needs to be a tooth to act as a support at each end for the procedure to be successful.
