Park Dental offers tooth-coloured fillings at our Sherwood Park office. We provide a number of options for restoring teeth damaged by cavities, chips, cracks or injuries. Whether you are looking to replace an old filling, or repair a tooth or several teeth, we can help you decide which treatment choice is the right one for you.
Smaller defects or cavities can be repaired with a bonded tooth-coloured filling while preserving as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
If the cavity or broken area involves the corner of the tooth, or involves a substantial portion of the tooth, a simple filling may not be strong enough to survive the heavy bite forces before something else breaks off. When this is the case, high-strength milled ceramic fillings, called inlays or onlays, are the best choice. We use our computerized scanner and milling machine to custom-fabricate a high-strength ceramic filling that is then bonded to the tooth. This is a method of computer-aided design dentistry called CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics). It is a very conservative approach to restoring a tooth without having to put a crown on the tooth.
More severe fractures or large cavities may require a crown to restore the shape and function of the tooth. CEREC can do crowns in a single appointment! Come watch our machine in action – it’s truly amazing!
