Composite fillings are utilized to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, small cracks or fractures. In order to fill the tooth, the decayed portion of the tooth will need to be removed. Composite fillings can be coloured to matched adjacent natural teeth, so your smile looks 100% natural.
As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may need to be replaced at some point. Dental fillings are very durable and have been known to last many years. This procedure can be done in as quick as one dental appointment and can help restore your tooth to its original shape and function
Root Canal Treatments
Root canal treatment brings immediate relief of discomfort caused by infection and inflammation at the centre of a tooth. At the core of each tooth is a chamber that houses vascular tissues, providing blood supply to the tooth. Pulp and nerves extend deep into the roots of teeth. When a tooth is decayed, cracked, or otherwise damaged, oral pathogens find their way into the pulp chamber. The resulting infection creates pressure within the tooth and inflames nerves. Root canal therapy involves opening the tooth and removing the damaged structure. Pulp and nerves are eliminated, and empty canals are cleaned. The pulp chamber is sealed, and the tooth is protected with a strong porcelain crown. In the end, you will be left with a tooth that is not only free of decayed nerves but also pain! Once you have completed your root canal, you may want to consult with our phenomenal dentists about taking the next step toward restoration.
