Revive Your Smile
If you are suffering from damaged or missing teeth, then you might benefit from restorative dental treatments.
Restorative dental care encompasses various procedures that are designed to help restore your smile's natural function and appearance.
At Gloucester Dental Centre, our dentists can perform a complete examination of your mouth to identify any potential issues, and then recommend and provide the most suitable restorative treatment option for you.
Periodontal (Gum) Therapy
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is an infection affecting various tissues in the oral cavity, including the gums, gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament. Gum disease can usually be managed with preventive therapy if detected early, but in the advanced stages, it will likely require more intensive treatment to reverse.
Bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements bonded to existing teeth or dental implants to replace a section of missing teeth. Custom-made bridges are designed to blend in almost seamlessly, offering a natural appearance. They can also help improve the alignment between upper and lower teeth.
Crowns are porcelain caps that are placed on top of teeth, serving to both restore functionality and enhance aesthetic appeal. Crowns can be used to attach bridges, cover dental implants or prevent a cracked tooth from worsening.
At Gloucester Dental Centre, we use composite (tooth-coloured) fillings to repair cavities or tooth damage, such as cracks. These fillings can stand up to the moderate pressure exerted during the continuous stress of chewing and are suitable for both front and back teeth.
Full, Partial & Implant Supported Dentures
Dentures serve as artificial teeth that replace either a single missing tooth, a series of adjacent ones (partial dentures), or an entire set of missing teeth in a jaw (full dentures). They enable individuals with tooth loss to preserve their facial structure and regain the ability to speak and eat.
A root canal is a dental procedure during which your dentist eliminates infected blood vessels, nerves, and tissues from the interior of a tooth. This process removes decay and bacteria, and also halts the progression of infection, thereby averting the necessity for tooth extraction.
Inlays are tooth-coloured porcelain fillings used to repair cavities that are centred in your teeth instead of along the outer edges. This restoration is also used to repair a large cavity that is too big for an ordinary filling.
Onlays are similar to inlays, but they fit in the inside and outside portions of the tooth, over the cusps. They are used to fill cavities that have usually progressed into more extensive tooth decay.
