Restorative Dentistry

Provided By Pediatric Dental Specialists in Edmonton

Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing and restoring the function, structure, and appearance of teeth that have been damaged or affected by dental issues. In our dental practice, we offer a range of restorative treatments specifically designed for children to ensure their oral health and overall well-being.


Tooth-coloured fillings, also known as composite fillings, are a popular restorative option for children. These fillings are made of a durable and biocompatible material that blends seamlessly with the natural colour of the teeth. They are used to repair teeth affected by cavities or minor damage. The decayed or damaged portion of the tooth is removed, and the composite filling material is applied and shaped to restore the tooth’s natural appearance and function. Tooth-coloured fillings provide a strong and long-lasting restoration while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing smile.


Custom-made dental crowns may be recommended for children with severely decayed, damaged, or weakened teeth that cannot be effectively restored with a filling alone. Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. They are typically made from durable materials such as stainless steel or tooth-coloured ceramics. Crowns restore the strength, integrity, and function of the affected tooth while maintaining its appearance. Pediatric crowns are specifically designed to accommodate the growing jaws and oral structures of children.

Pulp Therapy

Pulp therapy is a restorative treatment focused on addressing infection or injury to the dental pulp, which is the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. When tooth decay or trauma reaches the pulp, it can cause pain and infection. Pulp therapy includes two main procedures: pulpotomy and pulpectomy. In a pulpotomy, the infected or damaged portion of the pulp is removed, and a medicated filling is placed to preserve the remaining healthy pulp. In more severe cases, a pulpectomy may be necessary, which involves complete removal of the infected pulp. After either procedure, the tooth is typically restored with a filling or crown to maintain its function and appearance.

Space Maintainers

When a baby tooth is lost prematurely due to extraction or decay, a space maintainer may be recommended to hold the space for the permanent tooth and prevent future orthodontic problems. Space maintainers are custom-made devices made of metal or plastic that are placed in the gap left by the missing tooth. They help guide the permanent tooth into its proper position and ensure that neighbouring teeth do not shift or close the space prematurely. By maintaining the appropriate spacing, space maintainers contribute to the proper alignment of permanent teeth and can help reduce the need for more extensive orthodontic treatments later on.

These restorative treatments for children are designed to address specific dental issues, restore oral health, and promote normal growth and development. Our dental team will assess your child’s individual needs and recommend the most appropriate restorative options to ensure the long-term health, function, and aesthetics of their teeth. By restoring damaged teeth at an early stage, we can minimize the risk of further complications and support your child’s overall dental well-being.
