Penticton Dental provides a range of general dentistry services, to help maintain the health of your smile, and to repair damage done by dental disease or injury.
Fillings are applied to repair decay or damage in a tooth and to restore the tooth's structure. We generally use white fillings (composites) for a more natural look and feel, which are placed in a single visit.
Bioclear fillings are specially placed to help close spaces and achieve maximum esthetics and youthful appearance.
Proper daily care with brush and floss is the only way to maintain healthy teeth. Visiting our office for professional cleanings, examinations, and advice is also a critical component of your dental health maintenance.
It may not be easy to keep teeth into the later decades of life but we attempt to aid people who share this goal.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a final effort to save a tooth that would otherwise have to be removed from the mouth, by replacing it's damaged nerve tissue with an artificial filling material.
Root canal treated teeth can function completely normally in the mouth for years despite being non-vital.
Crowns & Bridges
A crown is a way of replacing large amounts of missing tooth structure, using a strong material to restore the tooth's appearance and function.
The actual restoration is made in a dental lab from a model of the prepared tooth and therefore requires two appointments to place.
A bridge is a fixed way to replace a missing tooth or teeth using the same techniques as a crown.
Crowns and bridges can help to provide strength in the case of badly compromised teeth.
