Restorative Dental Treatment Options
Restorative dentistry involves one of our friendly, qualified dentists repairing the existing teeth and correcting dental problems to ensure that your teeth can last you a lifetime. Teeth undergo a lot of pressure and can withstand different temperatures from eating and drinking. Tooth enamel is one of the strongest substances in the human body, but it cannot repair itself. Repairing teeth needs the professional expertise of a dentist or dental therapist. They will be able to help resolve problems such as dental decay, and chips or cracks in the teeth. Using the means of fillings, inlays/onlays, and dental crowns and bridges; our dentists strive to help you retain all your natural teeth.
Fillings are the least invasive treatment to restore teeth. They usually consist of tooth coloured composite resin, a biocompatible material which is strong enough to withstand pressures of a natural tooth. The dentist will usually remove any decay from the tooth and place the composite resin in the tooth, resulting in a beautiful, barely noticeable filling.
Teeth Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays are another type of restorative dental treatment for when the dental decay is quite extensive. Dental inlays/onlays are stronger than regular fillings. They are manufactured out of the mouth in a dental laboratory. The dentist will remove the existing decay from the tooth and take a mould to send to the dental laboratory. The dental technicians at the laboratory create a perfect copy of your tooth using the mould, which they use to fabricate the inlay/onlay with gold or composite resin.
Dental Crowns and Mouth Bridges
Dental Crowns and Bridges are quite similar to inlays/onlays as they are also manufactured in a dental laboratory. A dental crown is like a cap for a tooth which is too weak or had too much decay and is heavily filled with composite resin. This cap is usually made of a strong ceramic and is specially created in order to look as natural as possible in your mouth. A bridge is a row of crowns which can replace a space where a tooth may be missing. This is a great permanent way of replacing a missing tooth.
