Downtown Ottawa Dental
Restoration: Fillings, Crowns & CEREC

Although our teeth are very strong, they aren’t always immune to damage from decay and infection. When your smile needs restorative work — like a filling, crown, inlay, onlay, or bridge — Pretoria Bridge Dental can get the job done.

Fillings & Crowns
When cavities form in the teeth, we simply remove the decayed material and fill the space with synthetic material. When a tooth has suffered more damage than a filling can handle — or if there are multiple fillings present — a crown covers the tooth to protect it from further damage.

CEREC Restoration
CEREC is a highly effective means of replacing fillings and restoring teeth that are decayed, weakened or broken. CEREC dental restoration brings a tooth back to its natural strength and beauty – with all-ceramic materials that look natural and can be done in one appointment.

Inlays protect the biting area of a the tooth by placing gold or porcelain over the damaged area. The inlay is neatly glued onto the area, and will prevent further damage.

An onlay is similar to an inlay, except that it covers more of the surface of the tooth. It is like a crown, but it’s often preferred for its ability to preserve the structure of the tooth.

Dental Bridges
When a tooth is removed, you and your dentist may choose to replace it with an artificial tooth held in place by a bridge. The bridge simply connects the artificial tooth to the existing natural teeth for a snug fit.

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. CEREC Crowns are the next generation of ceramic crowns. CEREC crowns are made with Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing to create a new tooth that perfectly fits on your damaged tooth and matches the rest of your teeth. CEREC crowns can be done in a same-day appointment, making them a popular convenient option.
CEREC crowns are an excellent option for a number of reasons. The most obvious advantage of CEREC crowns is that they can be installed in a day. Previously dental crowns took several appointments to be placed on the patient, but this is no longer the case. CEREC crowns are also made from a very strong ceramic or resin which is durable and long-lasting. CEREC crowns are also made with computer-aided design and manufacturing, so the crowns are produced to be a perfect match to the rest of your teeth – all in the dentist’s office.

A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is an artificial tooth used to cover damaged, decayed, misshapen, or discolored teeth in order to protect and/or restore it. Dental onlays on the other hand are restorations that are used for teeth damaged by vacaties, decays, or fractures.

Your dentist is the best person to help you determine whether you should get a dental crown or an inlay. Contact us today to book an appointment to see if you should get onlays or crowns.

Like the name suggests, dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth with healthy teeth around it, dental bridges are a great choice for replacing the tooth. Dental bridges serve a similar purpose to dental implants, with the advantage of being more affordable and quicker to install. While dental implants cost more and require more time to install, they last longer and have a more natural look, especially if they are at the front of the mouth. If you’re not sure whether you should get dental implants or a dental bridge, contact Pretoria Bridge Dental today to book an appointment. Our dentist can help you make the right choice to replace your missing tooth or teeth.
If you’ve just received dental fillings, you are probably wondering how you can take care of them. Luckily, the answer is easy – just keep up with a regular dental care routine. This means brushing and flossing twice a day, regularly seeing the dentist and keeping them informed of any changes or issues you notice. Over time, dental fillings do degrade and will eventually need to be replaced. When this happens, you might notice a number of signs such as sharp pains, or feeling jagged edges or cracks when you feel the area with your tongue. If you notice this, odds are your filling has cracked and you will need to have a dentist locate the problem and fix it as soon as possible. If you are having issues with your dental fillings, contact us today for an appointment. We can help you with your dental fillings!
