Our skilled, supportive team of dental care professionals can
deliver a comprehensive range of general dentistry services to effectively meet the needs of our patients, including: fillings, crowns and bridges, dentures, and root canals – and we stand behind our work.
A filling is required if you have decay in a tooth, if a tooth has been cracked or damaged or if one of your current fillings needs to be replaced. At Southwest Dental Care, we use bonded fillings made of a composite resin that's similar in colour to your teeth. This helps your filling blend in more naturally with your teeth compared to the traditional silver amalgam fillings.
A crown is a restoration technique that completely covers a tooth, providing it with structure and support. Made of porcelain, dental crowns are used in cases where a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or other dental procedure.
Dental bridges can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, attaching to the remaining natural teeth on either side in order to 'bridge' the gap between them. A bridge not only creates an aesthetically pleasing smile, but also operates as a space maintainer by preventing natural teeth from shifting or rotating into the space created by missing teeth.
The most cost-effective option to replace missing teeth, dentures can be used to replace one missing tooth, or as many as all of your teeth. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in the top and/or bottom section of your mouth, and are usually made from acrylic with acrylic or porcelain teeth. Partial dentures on the other hand replace one or more missing teeth, and are generally made from a combination of acrylic and metal .
A root canal is necessary when your tooth has developed, or is very likely to develop, an infection in its inner soft tissue. This type of infection cannot clear up on its own, and therefore, dental intervention is necessary in order to maintain your oral health, and prevent future infections from developing.
