Carrington Dental Centre in West Kelowna provides our patients with restorative dental care options that can help improve their overall health.
Ceramics offer strength and wear resistance for tooth-coloured restorations. This is a material used to repair a tooth with extensive decay or cracks, or little healthy enamel left.
They are custom manufactured in a lab by dental technicians and put through a glazing and staining process to look as natural as possible.
A dental bridge is created to permanently attach to teeth on either side of one or more missing teeth, in order to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
Partial dentures are used when only some of your teeth need to be replaced. These are usually made from acrylic or porcelain teeth. If the space is large, a partial denture that is custom designed to carefully attach to the remaining teeth may be required.
We also provide full dentures to comfortably replace the teeth of an entire jaw. Full dentures replace all of the teeth in either the top or bottom sections of your mouth. Partial dentures on the other hand replace one or more missing teeth, and are generally made from a combination of acrylic and metal.
A “crown” is often referred to as a “cap” and simply means that it covers the entire tooth rather than just filling in part of the tooth. We offer both porcelain-fused crowns and gold crowns. The precious metal (gold) in these fillings can last for numerous years.
