Regular brushing and flossing can only offer so much when it comes to maintaining the look and function of your teeth. Sometimes restorative dentistry procedures are needed to ensure the overall structure and beauty of your smile. At New Look Dental, we provide restorative dentistry services in the form of crowns, veneers and dental bridges. West Kelowna patients who are looking to fix or replace missing or damaged teeth can benefit from these restorative treatments in many ways. Each person’s smile is unique and therefore the team at New Look Dental takes the time to understand your dental health needs. We work with you to find the restorative dentistry treatment that works for you.
A dental bridge is used to “bridge” a gap or gaps in your smile left behind by missing teeth. Traditionally, dental bridges are held in place with two porcelain crowns that are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap. Dental implants can also be used to anchor the dental bridge in place offering additional security. Missing teeth affect how you speak and chew so getting a dental bridge can help improve these abilities.
Dental crowns, sometimes called dental caps, are placed over the visible portion of your natural teeth to improve their look and strength. If your tooth or teeth are discoloured, chipped, cracked, misshapen or worn down, a dental crown can help restore it.
Similar to crowns, veneers are used when natural teeth are discoloured, worn down, chipped or misaligned. A veneer is a very thin, custom-made shell that is placed over the surface of your tooth to improve its look. They are made from tooth-coloured materials like porcelain or resin in order to blend in with the rest of your teeth.
