Restorative dental services are sometimes necessary to help you maintain a healthy and functional smile. The dentists at Capitol Dentistry provide fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures for patients who are looking to restore their oral health.
Fillings are recommended if you have decay (a cavity), a cracked or damaged tooth, or if a current filling needs to be replaced.
We use bonded fillings for cavities which are made of a composite resin that's similar in colour to your teeth.
This helps your filling blend in more naturally with your teeth compared to the traditional silver amalgam fillings.
A dental crown is a restoration technique that completely covers a tooth, providing it with structure and support.
Crowns are typically made of porcelain, zirconia or metal alloys, and are used in cases where a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or another dental procedure.
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth by attaching to the remaining natural teeth on either side, in order to 'bridge' the gap between them. A bridge not only helps to create a healthy smile, but also operates as a space maintainer by preventing natural teeth from shifting or rotating into the space created by missing teeth.
Many dental plans cover fillings, crowns and bridges if they are necessary for your oral health. If you are unsure about what your plan covers, we recommend reaching out to your insurance provider for clarification.
