From Fillings to Implants,
We’ve Got You Covered –
Looking for safe, hassle-free smile fixes that will last a long time? Give the team at Costello Family Dentistry a call and ask about our dental restorations. By combining experienced talent with custom-tailored solutions and the very best equipment for the job, we can help you achieve a more complete, beautiful and confidence-boosting smile.
Whether you’re fighting off cavities, need a new crown or otherwise, we’re happy to make it happen. Our dental restorations encompass a wide array of specialized services, each of which is geared towards improving specific aspects of your teeth. If you’re struggling to eat your favourite treats or want to avoid amalgam at all costs (we don’t blame you), you can count on us. The same applies to more intensive therapies that aim to protect your teeth from below the gum line, such as root canals.
Ever heard of dental amalgam? It’s a mixture of metals used in low-quality fillings and usually consists of a mixture of tin, silver and copper alloy. Mercury is used to bind the particles together to form the filling. However, as many of us know, mercury is a known toxin. Dental amalgam using mercury releases low levels of it in a vapour form, which can lead to lung and kidney problems (among others).
Costello Family Dentistry has never used amalgam dental fillings, and we never will. Our amalgam-free alternatives often referred to as “white fillings” don’t carry any harmful materials. Plus, they blend beautifully to match the rest of your smile. As a result, you enjoy a natural-looking smile and no more cavity pain, all with zero risk of ingesting any nasty toxins. What’s more, our amalgam-free fillings are way stronger!
We consider that not only a win-win but also the right thing to do. You deserve the best!
Porcelain Inlays and
If you have several teeth missing or in need of the extraction of multiple teeth that are grouped together, a partial denture set is a better choice. They can be customized to perfectly match your remaining real teeth to achieve a natural look. In addition, they’re useful for avoiding crowding or shifting in the mouth once in place, and they should be put in and removed daily just like with full dentures. Partial dentures are different in that they depend on support from your real teeth. Our team works diligently to ensure you don’t encounter any discomfort or irritation as these sets can come in unique forms based on the shape of your mouth’s structure.
Our Carleton Place location offers same-day appointments for your emergencies. If you need a dentist near you to help you in a crisis, please do not hesitate — call us right away!
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are of critical importance if you suffer from a tooth infection. They are used to remove infected or decayed root pulp and ensure as much of the tooth as possible can be saved. Today’s root canal therapies, including ours, focus just as much on your comfort, safety, and peace of mind in addition to eliminating any risk of further tooth infection. If you do have an infection, it’s very important that you get it addressed by an experienced dental professional before it causes extensive damage – it can even affect your very well-being, to put it lightly. There’s a common misconception about the pain associated with root canals – in fact, the experience is similar to having a filling placed! If we need to perform a deep cleaning of the root, then don’t worry, anesthesia (laughing gas) is provided to ensure you don’t feel any pain.
Nobody wants to be stuck with missing teeth; it’s embarrassing, awkward, and detrimental to self-confidence. Plus, it doesn’t make eating, drinking or even speaking a walk in the park! You can also encounter infections due to bacteria buildup. Tackle all three issues in one go with Costello Family Dentistry’s dental implants! These are permanent solutions to missing teeth that are impossible to distinguish from your natural smile. They are used to protect against jawbone damage that usually comes after losing a tooth, being embedded into the jaw with a new false tooth attached to the implant. They are completely independent and don’t require altering other teeth or tissue for an installation. Sometimes, bone and gum grafts may be required prior to installation, but we’ll let you know for certain during your initial consultation.
Costello Family Dentistry’s restoration-focused services are designed to offer practical, dependable, permanent results that you can trust. To learn more or book an appointment, get in touch with the team today. We look forward to helping restore your smile!
