Columbia Square Dental
Restorative Dentistry in New Westminster
Although our dental team at Columbia Square Dental always strives to provide you and your family with preventative dental care, there may be situations in which a tooth needs to be repaired or removed and replaced. In these cases, we use restorative dental techniques and procedures to help resolve issues and strengthen your overall oral health. Depending on your needs, our dental team may be able to offer you several treatment options to choose from.
Cracked, injured, and damaged teeth can sometimes be repaired with dental bonding. For this treatment, a resin is applied to the damaged part of the tooth, shaped, and then hardened using a curing light. Dental bonding can strengthen the tooth, repair chips and cracks, and create a smooth, stain-free finish on the teeth.
When it comes to restoring missing or removed teeth, dental implants are quickly becoming one of the most popular options. Their permanence, look, feel, and function all make dental implants the most similar to a natural tooth. Although the process is longer than other restorative options, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a worthwhile investment in your long-term oral health.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 dental implants are also commonly known as full-mouth dental implants. This unique restorative treatment option is an excellent choice for patients seeking to replace one or both full arches of teeth (top or bottom). All-on-4 provides a firm foundation for your artificial teeth to restore full function, while also looking very much like natural teeth.
A dental bridge is a restorative option that allows our dental team to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a simple pontic (artificial tooth). Patients often choose bridges when they are seeking an affordable and straightforward solution for partial tooth loss. If you have missing teeth, talk to our dental team about your options for dental bridges.
As the teeth experience wear and tear, they may become more prone to developing cavities (holes in the protective tooth enamel that encases the teeth). Fillings are used to preserve the integrity and strength of the natural tooth, and to prevent infection-causing bacteria from reaching inside the tooth roots. Composite dental fillings can be matched precisely to the shade of your natural teeth, creating a secure and beautiful restoration that is hardly noticeable.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. Whether you have experienced tooth loss due to injury, disease, or oral health challenges, dentures can be an excellent option to restore the look and function of the teeth. Having troublesome teeth removed and replaced by dentures often leads to a higher quality of life for patients.
