Dental Restoration in Bedford
Injury or decay can cause damage to your teeth and leave them vulnerable. Dental restorations repair this damage and restore the natural function and appearance of your teeth.
Fillings are used to repair cavities caused by decay. The filling prevents further decay and protects the vulnerable inner part of your tooth from infection. We use tooth-coloured fillings that are virtually unnoticeable.
Dental crowns, or “caps” are restorations that are placed over an entire tooth. Crowns are used in situations where a tooth needs to be completely restored, such as after root canal treatment or when a tooth has been badly damaged. Our crowns are designed and coloured so they look identical to your natural teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays restore damage that can’t be repaired with a filling. Unlike fillings, inlays are created in a dental lab and cemented into place in the tooth being repaired. They provide a high level of structural support to the tooth and protect it from further damage. Onlays are used to restore the cusps (biting surfaces) of your molars.
Dental bridges are one of the restorations for teeth that have been lost. The bridge is an artificial tooth that is attached to the teeth on either side of the tooth that’s been lost. Bridges preserve the alignment of your remaining teeth and restore the function of the missing tooth.
