9th Line Dental uses fillings to restore your decayed or damaged teeth. We can replace your old metal fillings (that contain traces of mercury) with more appealing, white composite fillings that give your smile a more natural look. You don’t have to be embarrassed by unsightly metal fillings! We use the latest in tooth-coloured resin and porcelain materials.
Skilled in the use of crowns, our Mississauga dentists will customize this restoration to fit over the top of your natural tooth. Crowns are needed when your tooth is decayed, damaged or cracked. Porcelain crowns have become popular due to their natural appearance, although they may be less durable. Other materials such as gold, acrylic resin or a mixture of materials can be used.
Do you need a solution for a missing tooth? 9th Line Dental can assist you with both bridges and implants. A bridge is connected to your adjacent natural teeth and offers the following benefits:
- Prevents shifting of your natural teeth which can result in bite problems (occlusion) and jaw problems which may lead to periodontal disease.
- Safeguards your remaining natural teeth and provides a complete, healthy smile.
Inlays / Onlays
An alternative restoration used to treat cracks, mild to moderate decay and minor damage, inlays and onlays are made of porcelain and provide a natural-looking smile. Available at 9th Line Dental in Mississauga, inlays and onlays are typically used when damage is not extensive enough to require a crown or other restoration. As a general rule, inlays fit within the contours of a biting service while onlays cover a portion of your biting surface. Our skilled staff will let you know if inlays or onlays make sense for you.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is needed when decay reaches the inner portion of your tooth. In this procedure, decayed pulp is extracted and the canal is then reshaped and filled with a strengthening material. Root canal therapy, also known as endodontic treatment, is a way to save your natural tooth.
We use the latest in technology at 9th Line Dental, including intra-oral cameras which assist in your education and overall satisfaction. You will be able to watch procedures and gain a better understanding of your treatment. Revolutionary micro-abrasion methods are also used for treating smaller areas of tooth decay. In this way, we can treat your decay without the use of needles!
Our dentists are pleased to offer surgical services such as wisdom teeth extraction. Oral and nitrous sedation is available to ease your nerves and increase your comfort.
