Restorative Dentistry – Treatment Details
If you are having missing teeth, they’ll need to be replaced with a bridge. To support the replacement tooth, the adjacent tooth will require a crown. When a tooth or more than one tooth is lost, the other ones may drift or move to grab the space. This is the reason why you should get a dental bridge as soon as possible.
If space is left unfilled, it may lead to several oral problems such as changing the way you bite. Other conditions that may come up include sore jaws, gum disease or tooth decay. To prevent such problems, a fixed bridge can be the ultimate solution that is a replacement for one or several teeth. The teeth on either end of the missing ones are used as anchors or abutments.
Procedure For Fitting A Bridge
- Assessment: The initial step is to assess the need for a restorative bridge to replace missing teeth.
- First Appointment: Teeth Preparation and Temporary Bridge Placement.
- Second Appointment: Permanent Bridge Placement.

Modern day dentures are a lot different from what they used to be before. They not only fit comfortably but looks completely natural and doesn’t cause any infections or blisters. At King Street Dental Centre, we make full or partial dentures that exactly meets your specifications and matches your shade for a beautiful smile.
Complete dentures, as the name implies, covers the entire jaw, i.e. both the lower and upper one. It is laid to rest directly on the gums exactly at the place where your natural teeth were. They are custom made after taking an impression of your jaw and are fitted in a manner that they don’t harm your jawline.
Fitting a full or partial denture is a lengthy process that takes three to five sitings based on how easy you are feeling after wearing them. Partial dentures consist of a metal framework with plastic teeth that are made to hold the jaw securely using metal or resin clasps.
Porcelain dental crowns are caps that are custom designed for a decayed tooth and placed over it to enhance its function and beauty. Porcelain crowns are custom crafted after taking an impression of your teeth and positioned carefully by a dentist to restore your smile. There are three types of crowns available. They include:
- Full porcelain crown
- Porcelain fused to metal crown
- Full metal crown

To determine which crown will work the best for you, our dentist at King Street Dental Centre will schedule a consultation. A porcelain crown will work the best if you need:
- To restore a tooth’s function

Porcelain inlays or onlays restoration is a custom made filling that is used to repair teeth with mild decay that do not need a crown. Inlays are popular as they give your tooth a natural appearance. It is usually made by a dentist and is permanently cemented into your tooth by a dentist. Inlays & onlays are a perfect choice for restoring:

Inlay & Onlay works only for the candidates that have enough tooth decay to be filled and not too much decay for a need of a crown. Porcelain inlays allow your local dentist at King Street Dental Centre in conserving your original decayed tooth and its natural structure. Its other benefits include:

If you want to get your missing teeth replaced with a permanent solution, dental implants are the right choice to opt for. It provides a fixed solution with partial and complete dentures. An implant is a small titanium post that is placed into the bone under your gums. The bone is allowed to grow around a dental implant, which gives it a natural look and functionality. After that, a tooth crown, a bridge, or a denture is attached to the post.
