Restorative Dentistry

Restorative Treatments

Our friendly dentists in Victoria, BC are here to offer judgment-free, compassionate care, and we offer a wide range of restorative services that will improve the appearance of a tooth or repair damage caused by decay or injuries.

Tooth coloured bonded fillings

Dental bonding is an effective dental tool that allows us to correct the appearance of many imperfections a tooth may have. It can be used to fill minor gaps, cover dark stains, and more. As it involves moulding material directly onto your tooth and can be used either to rebuild a part of your tooth or in conjunction with other procedures, such as porcelain veneers.

Bonding material is made of a composite resin combining the elasticity and durability of plastic with the strength and appearance of ceramics. Using an etching technique, bonding adheres well to teeth and can last for several years. Bonding is also comparatively inexpensive to other dental procedures such as crowns or veneers.

The dentists at Saanich Dental Group can use bonding to improve your smile, often in a single visit. The decision to use dental bonding is based on the size and part of your tooth that needs restoration or enhancement. Our skilled dentists in Victoria BC would be pleased to discuss dental bonding as well as your other options for creating your confident smile.

Lab-Made & Same-Day Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as “caps”, are the best way to restore a tooth that has been damaged by severe decay or has been cracked or broken. At Saanich Dental Group., we offer lab-made crowns and the newer CEREC technology with same-day crowns for patients looking to repair a damaged tooth in a convenient single appointment.

‍Crowns are designed to surround and cover up the entire structure of your tooth, preserve remaining enamel, and restore aesthetics. Crowns typically can be made in gold or a very lifelike porcelain, and we will choose the best material to meet your functional and esthetic needs.

Replacing a single or multiple missing teeth

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are made up of two dental crowns connected to a “pontic” (a false tooth) in the middle to replace missing teeth. Dental bridges can restore your smile’s appearance and improve chewing function if you suffer from one or more missing teeth.

Dental implants

A dental implant is a false tooth root inserted into your jawbone that holds a replacement dental bridge, denture, or dental crown. This treatment tends to be more conservative than dental bridges because dental implants don’t need to use neighbouring teeth as anchors.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and comfortable that you will likely forget you even have one. Dental implants are the most successful solution to missing teeth. Dental implants integrate into the structure of your jawbone and they work to prevent bone deterioration and gum recession that is common with missing teeth and other dental restorations.

Dentures & Implant Supported Dentures

Dentures are typically the most affordable way to restore your smile if you’ve lost one or multiple teeth. Partial dentures can be used if most of your teeth are healthy, and you are only missing a few of your natural teeth. Full dentures are usually only recommended for patients who have lost most or all of their teeth, as they require the extraction of any remaining teeth.

‍In addition to traditional dentures, we also offer implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures are removable dentures that clip into a set of dental implants. They look and feel more natural than traditional dentures when worn, they help keep your jaw bone healthy, and they won’t shift around in your mouth when you chew or speak. During your denture consultation, we’ll discuss your needs, goals, and budget to help you make an informed decision about which restoration is best for you.

Root canal therapy

If you had a tooth with an infected nerve in the past, you would have probably lost that tooth. However, today, we are able to offer root canal therapy to save your tooth.

Your teeth are hollow, and the nerves and roots of your teeth are contained in the pulp. When your tooth has a deep cavity or is cracked, bacteria can enter the pulp. You will typically know there is a problem due to the pain you experience including sensitivity to hot and cold foods or pressure. As it becomes infected, it can cause swelling and pain. The infected nerve can either be removed by a root canal or through an extraction.

The root canal treatment typically requires one visit and sometimes two depending on the tooth. Usually, it’s recommended to place a dental crown afterwards to protect your tooth. As long as you are taking good care of your teeth by brushing, flossing, and regular checkups, your restored tooth can last for many years.
