No one wants to deal with missing or damaged teeth. They create both functional and appearance issues that patients must cope with. In the long run, they can also lead to overall oral health problems.
If you have missing or damaged teeth, Dentrix Dental Care can help. We offer a variety of solutions that will get your smile back to what it once was.

Benefits of Restorative Dentistry
First, let’s take a look at the benefits of these services.
While it may seem like a superficial reason, the appearance of your smile is important. It can affect your confidence and how you interact with others.
Our services can remedy gaps or damaged teeth. Restorative dentistry also helps with appearance in that it prevents tooth decay and discolouration.
In short, when you leave our office, you’ll have a mouth full of aligned pearly whites.
Perhaps even more important than appearance is functionality. An issue such as a collapsed bite can make it hard to properly speak or chew. Options such as dental crowns or bridges can get everything back in working order.
Save Your Natural Teeth
The goal of restorative dentistry is to save your natural teeth. By removing plaque and conserving the tooth’s structural integrity, we help ensure that your teeth last you a lifetime.
Optimise Oral Health
When teeth are broken or missing, your overall oral health is at risk. Affected areas are hard to clean, putting them at a higher risk for cavities and tooth decay.
By restoring your teeth, you can ensure that you maintain the oral hygiene you need to stay healthy.
Options for Restorative Dentistry
Our team specialises in different restorative dentistry services, some of which include:
While most closely associated with elderly patients, dentures benefit many people. They are prosthetic replacements for damaged or missing teeth.
Your dentist might recommend partial or full dentures. This will depend on how big the affected area is.
Implants are the closest you’ll get to a natural tooth. A surgeon will insert a component such as titanium post where a missing tooth once was. It will have the same functions as a natural tooth and be able to support other dental prostheses.
Large gaps usually occur either naturally or because of an extracted tooth. Regardless of the reason, our team of professionals can fix this issue with dental bridges. While they can be made of different materials, porcelain is the most common because it fits best with your teeth’s natural colour.
Crowns fit right over damaged teeth and restore normal size, shape, and function. The process usually requires two appointments.
During the first visit, we’ll make a custom mold. At the second visit 1-2 weeks later, our team will cement your permanent crown.
