Our Services

Prosthodontics is the restoration of natural teeth or the replacement of missing ones. The measures may be considered as a matter of aesthetics, to improve oral function or to aid general comfort and health.

The procedures we provide range from a single tooth reconstruction to complete dental reconstruction. Our vast experience in this discipline of dentistry covers a wide range of procedures and treatment solutions, including:

Teeth Whitening

Tooth-whitening procedures offer patients with stained, discoloured or dull teeth an opportunity to have a whiter, brighter smile. Whitening significantly reduces external surface stains affected by food and beverage. We can suggest many products available to whiten your teeth. These products include commercially available strips, bleaching gels used in custom fitted trays made by your dentist or bleaching in a dental office using UV light or lasers. Let us help find the best solution for your teeth.

Tooth Coloured Fillings / composites

Made of tooth-coloured material, composite fillings restore the teeth’s natural contour. Composite fillings can be matched and are virtually indistinguishable from non-restored teeth. Composite fillings are excellent options for front teeth, but may be suggested for selected sites on molars. The composites we use have proven to be extremely durable and stain resistant.

Bonding

Bonding is a process in which tooth-coloured material is applied to tooth surfaces, sculpted into shape, hardened and polished to match surrounding teeth. With this procedure, Dr. Bortolussi can close gaps, repair chipped or fractured teeth and disguise discoloured teeth. Bonding usually requires one office visit. Bonding procedures are the choice of treatment for patients who have minor front tooth imperfections.

Onlays

When you do not need a full crown, onlays may be the solution. The onlay procedure is a restoration in which composite, porcelain or gold is applied to the tooth’s biting service to provide support as a conservative treatment option.

Veneers

Usually customized from porcelain, veneers are thin, semi-translucent facings bonded to the fronts of teeth. Veneers are durable, stain-resistant and natural looking. They conceal broken, chipped, discoloured, crooked and misshaped teeth and provide you with the winning smile you have always wanted.

Crowns

A crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen and restore it to its normal shape and size. It may be placed to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth. A tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy will require a crown following treatment to provide strength and support to the tooth. When designing crowns, we use only materials such as; metal, porcelain fused to metal or all-ceramics, which are metal free that will provide the longest lasting benefits to our patients.

Bridge

A fixed bridge is used to replace missing teeth. A bridge helps to create a normal bite, prevent stress on the dental arch, prevent the drifting and tilt of adjacent teeth, inhibit decay in difficult areas and slow the onset of periodontal diseases. Bridges are composed of abutments (sound teeth on either side acting as supports) and the span (a framework, made of metal or non-metal materials, attached to the abutments/supports with artificial teeth attached between them). The patient cannot remove the bridge and special aids are available to keep it clean.

Dental Implants

Implants look, feel and function like your teeth. It avoids healthy teeth from being ground down for a crown. Anchoring dental implants in the jawbone stimulate bone tissue and gums, ensuring an attractive, aesthetic result while helping maintain facial structures. Dental implants do not require any adhesives to hold the new teeth in place. They eliminate the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures. Dental implants provide a secure, permanent tooth replacement.

Complete Dentures

Full dentures are used if there are not any teeth left for support. The full denture covers the entire jaw surface and is partly help in place by a natural vacuum in the mouth. Many patients still experience difficulty wearing conventional dentures because of poor stability and decreased chewing function. The use of dental implants to improve the stability and retention of dentures is becoming a popular option to overcome the limits of a conventional denture.

Removable Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are indicated if some serviceable teeth are present for support in conjunction with the gums and jawbone. A partial denture, though removable, provides a functional replacement for missing teeth replacing the patient’s function and appearance.

Night Guard Therapy

Night guards are used as a treatment option to prevent damage to the chewing surfaces of the teeth associated with grinding and clenching. It is a conservative treatment that is very successful and highly recommended for patients with TMJ dysfunction. By creating an acrylic pattern of your teeth, Dr. Bortolussi can help you protect your teeth from unnecessary tooth wear and relieve the pressure on the TMJ

Occlusal Adjustment

Proper functioning of the jaws and teeth is often hindered by malocclusion (a bad bite). Adjustments to the bite can be made so that your teeth fit together properly for chewing and swallowing. Minor polishing of the enamel surfaces or fillings of the teeth can help redistribute and redirect the biting forces.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea refers to a temporary cessation of breathing while sleeping. Many times the airway is obstructed by the patient’s anatomy, and the placement of a specially designed night guard that repositions the lower jaw can improve the airflow and quality of sleep.

Cleft Palate/Obturator

Many cleft lip and palate patients exhibit missing teeth in the area of the cleft and would benefit from a prothodontist’s care in the management of these areas. Although most cleft palates are now successfully closed surgically, there are patients who require an obturator to close the palatal defect, whether it is congenital or acquired. A prosthodontist possesses the skills necessary to fabricate an obturator that will improve the patient’s speech and swallowing.

Congenital and Developmental Mouth Defects

Many patients are missing certain teeth because the teeth never developed or may be misshapen. A prosthodontist can determine the best way to replace and/or restore these teeth. Other patients exhibit teeth with poorly developed tooth structure throughout the mouth and require a prosthodontist’s expertise in restoring the teeth to proper form and function.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Many patients require all their teeth to be replaced or restored due to trauma or deterioration and wear. The complexity of rehabilitating the patent back to their proper form and function demands the expertise of a prosthodontist.
