Dental Restorations in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Bonded Fillings

If plaque has dissolved the enamel of your tooth - making a tiny cavity - the solution is often as easy as a filling. We can remove the decayed portion of your tooth, and fill the space with a resin (white) filling, a silver filling or a gold or porcelain restoration.

Dental Crowns

If a tooth already contains several fillings - or has a large amount of decay - we may suggest a crown. This encircles (or “caps”) your tooth, protecting it and keeping it strong. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, pure white porcelain (to resemble a natural tooth), or zirconia.

Root Canal Therapy

If tooth decay progresses and damages the nerve of your tooth, you may require a root canal. We remove the damaged nerve and fill the space with new material - allowing you to keep your natural tooth. Since the tooth no longer has a nerve to provide its blood supply, we may place a crown over your tooth to prevent it from chipping or cracking easily.

Dental Bridges

If your tooth is badly decayed, we may recommend removing the infected tooth and giving you a bridge. We’ll reduce the size of the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth, so the bridge can use these teeth as supports for an artificial tooth in the middle.

Dental Implants

A good solution for a badly-decayed tooth is often removing it entirely and giving you a dental implant in its place. A titanium implant is placed in the bone, and a new crown is placed on the implant. Dental implants do not affect adjacent teeth, and are considered to be the closest solution to having a strong, healthy natural tooth. A dental implant will also preserve the bone in the area, and decrease the load on other teeth.
