Restoration - open mouth

Restoration

A restoration is commonly called a filling. It replaces the damaged part of the tooth and restores its function. A filling is made of composite (white filling), or amalgam (silver filling). A composite filling also restores the natural appearance of the tooth, increasing the confidence to speak, smile, and laugh freely.

Indications:

  • Small or moderate cavity
  • Damaged or broken filling
  • Chipped or cracked tooth
  • Moderately worn away enamel

Inlay, Onlay

An inlay or onlay is a customized tooth structure made out of porcelain or composite. It looks like a big white filling or a partial crown. It restores the tooth, giving it back its function, size, shape, and color.

Indication:

  • A severely damaged tooth that can no longer be restored with a simple filling, and that is not damaged enough to require a root canal or a full crown
Restoration - open mouth

Crown

A dental crown is a customized tooth made out of porcelain, metal, or both. It looks like a hat that entirely covers the natural tooth in order to protect it, and restore its function and appearance.

Indication:

  • A severely damaged tooth by a large cavity, filling, fracture, or tooth anomaly
  • Severely worn away enamel
  • A tooth weakened by a root canal
  • Crown over an implant
  • Abutment: support for a bridge
Restoration - open mouth

Bridge

A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth, improving the function and appearance of the mouth, and preventing teeth misalignment, and gum and TMJ (joint) problems. A bridge is customized and uses the teeth on each side of the missing one for support (abutments). There are 3 kinds of bridges: the conventional bridge, the butterfly bridge, and the bridge attached to implants.

Indication:

  • Missing tooth
Restoration - open mouth

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment where a bleach solution is applied to the teeth, bringing out a whiter, brighter smile.

Indications:

  • Naturally yellow, dark teeth
  • Discolored teeth due to aging
  • Discolored teeth due to smoking
  • Discolored teeth due to certain foods and beverages that stain the teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine
  • Teeth stained by certain medications such as tetracycline
  • A darkened (grey or black) tooth following an accident or a root canal

Veneer

A veneer is a cosmetic treatment. It consists of a composite resin that is bonded to the surface of the tooth, or a customized thin shell made out of porcelain that covers it, improving the appearance of the mouth and creating a glamorous smile.

Indications:

  • Unsatisfactory tooth shape
  • Unsatisfactory tooth size
  • Unsatisfactory tooth alignment
  • Unaesthetic teeth gaps
  • Unsatisfactory tooth color
  • A permanently stained tooth

Endodontics

An endodontic treatment is commonly called root canal. During the treatment, the canal of the tooth is cleansed from all pulp (nerve and blood vessels) debris and infection material. It is then prepared, sealed, and filled to prevent an infection.

Indications:

  • Exposure of the nerve due to a deep cavity or fracture of the tooth
  • Acute or chronic pain
  • Inflammation of the nerve of the tooth
  • Infection (abscess) with or without swelling
  • In preparation for some crowns
Restoration - open mouth

Orthodontics

An orthodontic treatment is a way to straighten the teeth into a better position. It improves their health, function, and appearance. It also treats and prevents gum and TMJ (joint) problems. An orthodontic treatment improves the appearance of the mouth, creates a beautiful smile, and increases self-confidence.

Indications:

  • Unsatisfactory teeth appearance
  • Teeth misalignment (crooked teeth)
  • Crowded teeth
  • Unaesthetic teeth gaps
  • Malocclusion (poor bite)

Periodontics

A periodontal treatment is commonly called gum treatment. At Centre Dentaire Rosemère, we offer different periodontal treatments, depending on the present condition of the gums.

Indications:

  • Regular dental cleanings (twice a year in average) to treat or prevent gingivitis
    • Gingivitis is a gum disease where the gum around the tooth is inflamed. Signs of gingivitis may be redness, bleeding, swelling, bad taste, bad breath, and possible pain
  • Scaling to remove and eliminate factors (plaque and tartar) which cause periodontitis
    • Periodontitis is a gum disease where the gum and bone around the tooth are inflamed or infected. Signs of periodontitis may be redness, bleeding, pus, swelling, bad breath, bad taste, root cavities, tooth sensitivity, tooth mobility, tooth migration, and possible pain.
  • Non-surgical curettage or deep scaling to treat moderate periodontitis
  • Surgical curettage or deep scaling to treat advanced periodontitis
  • Gum grafting to treat and prevent unhealthy, unaesthetic receding gums and sensitive teeth
    • Grafting can be autogenic or with AlloDerm
  • Crown lengthening to expose a tooth in order to restore it
  • Gum lift or contour to improve the smile

Surgery

  • Removal (extraction) of a damaged tooth that can no longer be saved by a dental treatment such as a filling, root canal, or crown
  • Removal (extraction) of a residual root in the gum or bone
  • Removal (extraction) of a third molar or wisdom tooth to treat or prevent a problem of the tooth itself or the neighbouring tooth, or to treat or prevent an inflammation or infection of the surrounding bone or gum
  • Remodeling of the gum or bone in preparation for another treatment such as a partial or complete denture
  • Root canal surgery

Implant

A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium. It is placed in the bone, and replaces the natural root. Once integrated, a crown is attached to it to mimic the natural tooth, restoring and improving the function and appearance of the mouth, and preventing teeth misalignment, bone loss, and gum and TMJ (joint) problems.

Indication:

  • Missing tooth
Restoration - open mouth

Occlusal Splint

An occlusal splint is commonly called night guard. It is a customized appliance that fits over the teeth to protect them and protect the dental work from chipping, cracking, or breaking. It also helps relax tense, sore, or painful neck, head and jaw muscles and joints.

Indications::

  • Bruxism or teeth clenching or grinding
  • Related headaches
  • Related tense, sore, or painful neck, head, face, and jaw muscles and joints
  • Difficulty opening the mouth
  • Jaw clicking or cracking
