Bona-Fide Dental is a mercury-free practice. We are aware that many of our patients may still carry the silver/mercury fillings in their teeth from past dental practices. This type of tooth filling is no longer ideal, because not only do they result in weakening the structure of the tooth, they also look unattractive from an aesthetical point of view.
Porcelain inlays or onlays create fillings that are both beautiful and unnoticeable, but more importantly, they add strength to the weakened tooth. Thanks to these new bonding technologies, we can help restore your smile into a beautiful and healthy one.
In situations where a patient’s damage to teeth is extreme and considered beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain pasted–on-gold crowns to make the smile visibly restored. A Dental Crown is a cap that covers a prepared tooth to prevent further damage or decay and serves to restore the look of the tooth to its original appearance.
All your teeth play an essential role in everyday functions such as speaking, chewing and help maintain alignment of other teeth in the mouth. Tooth loss doesn’t necessarily have to occur as you age. But when the loss of a tooth occurs, its replacement is essential to maintain proper oral function. Fortunately, there are options available to correct tooth loss.
A Dental Bridge fills the gap created by one or two missing teeth. The bridge is usually made up of one (or two) false teeth fused to the adjacent crowns placed on the patient’s teeth, on either side of the gap. Filling gaps due to missing teeth stop the shifting and tilting of teeth and are a preventive treatment for biting problems and gum disease in the area affected. It also protects the integrity of the existing teeth and helps to maintain a healthy and functional smile.
Dental implants are primarily designed to provide a stronger foundation replacement with teeth that function, look and feel like natural teeth.
The implants consist of a titanium post placed into the jawbone where a tooth is missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a solid foundation for the artificial tooth. Additionally, dental implants assist in preserving facial structure and prevent bone deterioration, which occurs when teeth are missing.
A root canal treatment is a dental procedure that involves the removal of inflamed or infected root nerves due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns or a crack or chip in the tooth. Trauma to your tooth may also cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible cracks or chips. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or may also lead to an abscess.
Modern endodontic treatment has advanced from old days and similar to a routine filling. These days it can usually be completed over one or two appointments. Root canal treatments are relatively painless and extremely effective. Depending on the condition of the tooth and personal circumstances, we can guide and advise our patients on the best solution for a root canal treatment.
A Denture is a removable prosthetic device worn to replace missing teeth and is the most cost-effective means of teeth replacement. There are many reasons why the loss of teeth occurs, stemming from mature ageing, poor health, gum disease, malnutrition or even pregnancy.
