Restorative Dentistry Services
Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth can not only affect your overall self-confidence, but can affect your oral health. In addition to taking away from your smile, these dental issues can lead to sensitivity, chewing discomfort, cavities, and infections. At Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry, Dr. Shiewitz provides a range of advanced dentistry techniques to restore your smile and alleviate any oral health issues. Our Toronto patients are able to choose from veneers, bonding, tooth colored fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. Call 416.223.4181 today to schedule a consultation to learn which restorative dental procedures best suit your needs.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that Dr. Shiewitz can bond to teeth to cover stains or mask flaws such as cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can also be applied to straighten the appearance of a crooked smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
By applying a thin coating of a tooth-colored composite resin material to teeth, Dr. Sara Shiewitz can improve the appearance of a number of cosmetic flaws. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is more affordable and just as effective as porcelain veneers, though results will not last as long.
When a tooth has been damaged by a deep cavity, Dr. Shiewitz may perform root canal treatment to remove the infected tooth pulp. To restore functionality and appearance, and to seal the tooth from further damage, a dental crown will then be placed over the entire tooth surface.
If a patient is missing one or more teeth but is not necessarily a good candidate for dentures or dental implants, he or she may be fitted with a dental bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth. This bridge is cemented permanently into place.
At Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry, we offer both full and partial dentures to our patients in the Toronto area. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Dr. Shiewitz uses the most modern materials and methods to create our patients' dentures, so they can always be assured of a comfortable fit and the most realistic appearance.
Traditional metal fillings are often composed of mercury, which, in addition to creating a black appearance, may be harmful to our patient's health and to the environment. For this reason, at Dr. Sara Shiewitz Dentistry we use mainly composite resin or tooth-colored fillings. These fillings are virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.
