Bringing your teeth back to their natural, beautiful, healthy state
Like an old car, your teeth can show signs of wear and tear over time. At Terra Nova Dental Centre, we recommend that you call us if you feel that your teeth have been damaged or have decayed.
We can often perform services on your teeth to improve and restore their quality and health. Those services include:
• Cavities are small holes that form in the enamel of your tooth. This can be fixed by removing the decay and filling that section with a new material - such as metal, acrylic or porcelain.
• If a tooth has already had a number of fillings or is highly decayed, a crown may be necessary. A crown is a cover that is placed over the existing tooth to protect it from further damage.
• If the biting surface of your tooth has undergone damage, we can remedy it by neatly cementing something called an “inlay” over the damaged area - restoring your tooth to good health.
• This is similar to an inlay, but is used when damage is more extensive. It covers more of the tooth, but is often preferred to a crown for its ability to maintain existing tooth structure.
• When a tooth is extracted, your dentist can often have it replaced with an artificial tooth that is held in place by a bridge that connects it to the two adjacent teeth.
