What is restorative dental care?
Restorative dental care is considered any dental procedure that restores your teeth to their full functionality or appearance. We’ll cover a variety of restorative dental care offered at Regent Avenue Dental Centre and dive into whether this might be the right dental care for you. However, in nearly all situations, it’s always best to discuss any dental problems with your dentist.

Types of restorative dental care
Not sure if restorative dental care from Regent Avenue Dental Centre is right for you? Let’s look at a few common oral health issues and the restorative treatments that can help you restore your smile now.
If you have one or more cavities, restorative dental care is essential to restore and repair your teeth. For minor to moderate cases of tooth decay, the best option is typically a filling, which will be used to restore the tooth. For larger cavities, a dental crown, which covers up and protects your entire tooth, may be recommended instead.
Teeth can become infected due to a severe, untreated cavity, or due to oral trauma that cracks or breaks the tooth. If this happens, a root canal is typically required. This procedure involves opening the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the inside, and then restoring the tooth with a dental crown or a filling. This restores it, prevents further complications, and provides you with relief from pain and discomfort.
Cracked, broken, or damaged teeth
In most cases, a dental crown will be recommended to restore a tooth that has been cracked, broken or otherwise damaged due to dental trauma or due to an oral health issue like untreated teeth grinding (bruxism). Crowns restore the shape and functionality of the tooth and protect the remaining structure from further damage.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge or an implant. Dental bridges attach to healthy teeth using dental crowns. An implant replaces just the missing tooth.
Full and partial dentures (false teeth) may also be a good option for you, depending on your oral health, budget, personal preferences, and other such factors.
