CEREC dental crowns
For more information, call us now to have your questions answered.
Cosmetic dentistry brings revolutionary technology to solve functional problems in the dental system. Crowns are ceramic or porcelain prosthesis placed over damaged teeth to restore shape, alignment, aesthetics, and good contact between teeth and ensure functionality. At Centre Dentaire Champlain, we offer CEREC solutions that combine efficiency and reliability.
In cases where one or more teeth are missing, bridgework is an effective way to restore complete dentition. Strong, durable artificial teeth can replace missing teeth, reduce the risk of chewing problems, and ensure oral balance. After a proper examination, the dentist will create a model based on your dental impression for a flawless finish.
Like dental fillings, commonly known as gray or white fillings, dental inlays are an alternative solution used to restore the surface of a damaged tooth. Placed inside the tooth, inlays are solid and effectively restore the appearance of your teeth and your smile. At Centre Dentaire Champlain, thanks to CEREC technology, we use porcelain inlays for a natural and lasting result.
Extraction is a last resort for severe periodontal disease, decay or lack of space. Our health professionals properly evaluate the situation and the alternatives before determining the need to remove a tooth. We ensure that the integrity of our patients' teeth is maintained through appropriate and comprehensive treatments.
Periodontics Service in Gatineau
What Is Periodontics?
At Centre Dentaire Champlain in Gatineau, we offer a periodontics service, a dental discipline that treats gum disease and periodontal disease, mainly the various disorders affecting the gums.
When a certain amount of tartar and plaque accumulates on the teeth, gum inflammation can occur. This condition usually manifests with bleeding when you brush or floss your teeth. Persistent bad breath can also indicate a gum problem.
If you notice these symptoms, see your dentist for advice to correct the situation, as it could develop into gingivitis. And if left untreated, gingivitis can turn into periodontal disease (or periodontitis), which can cause tooth mobility and even worsen to the point of losing one or more teeth. Fortunately, there are simple and effective ways to prevent periodontitis, including maintaining impeccable dental hygiene.
To have the condition of your teeth and gums assessed or to learn more about periodontics, make an appointment at Centre Dentaire Champlain in Gatineau. Our attentive team will welcome you with professionalism and will be happy to answer all your questions.
Why Have a Gum Graft?
The proper functioning of the oral system depends on the health of the gums, teeth, tongue, and other mouth components. Whether it's the attached gums or the loose gums, gum recession can worsen and cause tooth loss and hypersensitivity and affect your appearance.
Gum recession is often caused by periodontal disease, poor brushing techniques, tooth position, or movement. If you feel or see increased sensitivity, root exposure, or tooth shrinkage, it's time to get a gum graft.
A gum graft is an optimal, long-lasting, and effective solution that helps protect the roots and prevent tooth mobility or loss. At Centre Dentaire Champlain, we graft oral tissue from other parts of your mouth onto the gums surrounding the exposed root. Make an appointment with us today!
Quality Root Canal Treatments in Gatineau
Do you need a root canal? At Centre Dentaire Champlain in Gatineau, our qualified professionals will perform the procedure expertly. The procedure consists of removing the damaged dental pulp and disinfecting the tooth's canals, then sealing them with a biocompatible material to prevent the spread of pathogens.
In What Situations Is Root Canal Treatment Indicated?
Your Gatineau dentist may recommend a root canal (or endodontic treatment) in a variety of cases, including the following:
You have a major cavity that has reached the nerve of the tooth (usually causing severe pain);
You need a major restoration;
You have a cracked or broken tooth that cannot be healed with a filling;
You have a damaged tooth pulp that needs to be treated;
You need to have a crown placed with a post.
What Is the Purpose of a Root Canal?
Is one of your teeth badly damaged, and you think that extraction is the only solution? If you act quickly, root canal therapy can allow your dentist to treat and preserve your tooth instead of replacing it with an implant.
Root canal therapy eliminates the pain and discomfort associated with the inflammation of the dental pulp, while preserving the enamel, cementum and dentin. The pulp is a living tissue made up of blood vessels and nerves that is located in the dentin canals. In case of inflammation, it is compressed, and the nerves transmit an intense pain signal. Root canal treatment is also used to increase the retention of a crown used in conjunction with a post when the remaining tooth structure is weak.
During a root canal, the affected pulp is removed from the canals. Since the canals no longer contain nerves, the pain disappears - this is why root canal therapy is sometimes referred to as root canal therapy. In addition to stopping tissue damage, the procedure preserves the structure of your tooth, which retains its chewing function and natural appearance. There are many advantages to having a root canal!
What Are the Steps of a Root Canal Treatment?
During your visit to our clinic in Gatineau, we will proceed with your root canal treatment by following these steps:
Injection of a local anesthetic;
Removal of the damaged pulp;
Complete disinfection of the dental canals;
Enlargement of the main canal;
Sealing of the canal by injection of a biocompatible material;
Restoration of the outer part of the tooth.
