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 Luka Dental Care, Dr. Luka provide a range of advanced dentistry techniques to restore your smile and alleviate any oral health issues. Our patients are able to choose from veneers, bonding, crowns, bridges, dentures, and fillings. Call 519-472-4460 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 our dentists can use 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 resin composite material to teeth, the dentist 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 may not last as long.
When a tooth has been damaged by a cavity, Dr. Luka will most likely perform a root canal 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. Also, it is imperative to make a crown for large restoration to improve the longevity of those restorations and protect the tooth from stress that leads to cracks and fractures.
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.
At Luka Dental Care, we offer both full and partial dentures to our patients. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Dr. Luka use 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, can be harmful to our patient’s health. For this reason, at Luka Dental Care we use only composite, or tooth-colored fillings. White fillings applied by Dr. Luka are less likely to cause tooth breakage like with metal fillings. White fillings are also virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.
