No matter what state your teeth are in, you can always find a gentle hand and complete oral services at Newmarket Dental Care. With our restoration services, we are able to address any problems you may be having with your teeth. We handle:
Dental implants are surgical introductions of synthetic tooth roots into the bone. This is followed by placement of dentures, bridges or crowns over this amazingly strong framework. Simple and uncomplicated placement of implants can be done in our office. We refer our patients to specialized surgeons, with whom we work personally, to have these implants placed. Together we plan treatment and place the final denture or bridge or crown in our office.
Tooth Coloured Fillings
We are now exclusively using tooth coloured filling material unless requested. We find it to be a better alternative to metal fillings. It adds bonding strength to the tooth, requires less drilling, and results in a more attractive smile. In addition, while disposing of metal fillings is an environmental hazard, our fillings are environmentally safe.
Tooth Coloured Crowns
Crowns are the restoration of choice for teeth that are severely broken down, fractured or clinically non-vital (due to root canal therapy). They are also used to provide cosmetic changes with increased strength. The newer porcelain and synthetic materials make crowns almost undetectable among the natural teeth.
This is a great alternative to achieve that Hollywood smile. Veneers are made of thin strong pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth. They are used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to close gaps between teeth. With a bit of contouring, veneers can rectify crowded or overlapping teeth. If your teeth have discoloured with age, a veneer may improve their appearance. Veneers can also be used for cosmetic reasons instead of crowns, which are more often used for badly damaged or decayed teeth.
Amalgam-Free Restorative Dentistry
Amalgam has long been used as a filling material and also for building restorations like crowns. Not long ago it was the best available component for fillings, but today it has been replaced by different components like porcelain, white composite and ceramic.
The fact that composite resin can be manipulated into a desired shape renders it into one of the most preferred restorative options available in dentistry. Composite white fillings are used to replace old silver fillings, restoring both the health and the appearance of natural teeth.
We aim at achieving a natural clean look, apart from ensuring full bio-compatibility of the restoration. That is why we are glad to inform our patients that all our procedures are Amalgam-free and safe, with the health and well-being of our patients being our primary goal.
Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration is meant to transform the physical organization of your teeth in order to benefit your health. The benefit this dental work could have is directly related to the condition of your teeth.
Broken, worn-out teeth are detrimental to overall health. They can also potentially diminish your confidence. Newmarket Dental Care can help by offering this comprehensive dental procedure. You might be a candidate for Full mouth restoration in the following cases:
Being a complicated procedure, it requires some planning as it may involve the use of several dental procedures like bridges, implants, inlays, onlays, veneers, gum therapy or root canals. Dr. Kin and our team of dedicated professionals will do their best to help you obtain the smile you want and the confidence to show it too!
A missing tooth can be the cause of not one, but many problems in simple day-to-day activities. Apart from affecting the strength of your bite, a lost tooth can create an undesirable gap. The loss of multiple teeth could also potentially affect your speech.
For a long term solution, bridges or dental implants are restorative procedures for replacing lost teeth. Implant restoration holds a few advantages over bridges in number of ways. Implants are basically metal abutments which are surgically screwed to the bone in order to act as a strong root for the restoration.
An implant tends to last longer if taken care of properly and also does not greatly impact the health of the adjoining teeth. Implant restoration is a viable tooth loss solution, one that closely resembles your natural teeth both in function and looks. Dr. Kin will be happy to discuss the pros and cons dental implant procedures, and whether they offer the best option for you.
Porcelain Inlays/ Onlays
The porcelain inlays and onlays service are indirect restorations, which are prepared in the laboratory after taking a sample of the tooth structure. Because of this precise imprint, they are very comfortable and function like your natural teeth. Not only that, but the material used to prepare these restorations behaves like enamel and looks natural from the outside.
While an inlay is used to repair minor decays or the chipping of teeth enamel to the centre of the tooth’s surface, an onlay can be used to restore a damaged cusp. This is what makes them so convenient, because unlike the crown, the entire surface doesn't need to be replaced – only the broken part is restored with help of a powerful resin. Because they are bonded with the tooth, porcelain inlays/onlays can last for a long time, protecting the teeth from any further damage. Used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes, this dental work requires precision and experience.
At Newmarket Dental Care, we strive to provide the most natural looking and stable dental solutions to our patients.
A porcelain veneer, a simple cosmetic procedure, works by covering up the damaged or stained tooth with a porcelain cap. There are a host of problems that can be improved by veneers, they are:
Veneers are prepared in the laboratory after taking an impression of the teeth. This procedure does not require much preparation or manipulation so you will be able to keep most of your natural teeth. A slight layer of the enamel is shaved off to make it compatible for an adhesive, which is applied to create a bond between the veneer and the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are much more resistant to discolouring when compared with dental bonding, saving it from stains occurring on intake of staining products like red wine, tobacco products and coffee.
Root Canal Treatment
Each root has a canal, where the nerve tissue, blood supply and other essential elements are located. It is hidden securely under the dentin but sometimes, because of a crack in the tooth, bacteria can reach the interior of the tooth and cause infection in the nerves. The infection starts a rapid process of decay inside the tooth. The most noticeable symptoms of infection in the root canal are:
Root Canal therapy focuses on taking out the infection from the inside and replacing the decayed pulp. For this Dr. Kin will penetrate the outer surface of the tooth and reach the canal to clear the infection using endodontic files. After replacing the pulp, the opening is sealed with a resin and then hardened by a special light. The surface of the tooth has to be replaced by a crown in most cases, which will strengthen the bite and help save the tooth from future infection.
