Your teeth are amazing

You use them constantly and they face extreme challenges with day to day use in your lifetime. They are also incredibly tolerant. But sadly your teeth are not invincible and they cannot heal themselves if they do get damaged.

Restoration options

The challenges your teeth face now are even more extreme then ever before in human history. Plus, humans are living longer than ever. So there are now more ways than ever before for your teeth to sustain injury. All things considered, your teeth are actually quite vulnerable in spite of their durability and resilience when faced with our modern diet, medications and lifestyle.

Fortunately modern dentistry now has many options to help restore and repair your teeth when damage or wear does occur. We also now have some restorative options available to help you prevent problems developing such as fissure sealants. Whatever your situation, you can rely on us to help you chose the best restoration that works for you.

Sealants & Fissure Sealants

This treatment is done to prevent the accumulation of food, plaque and debris in shallow grooves to help you keep the area clean and prevent cavities developing in these areas. They are often long lasting, almost invisible and can usually be completed without the need for an injection/anaesthetic.

Composite Resin Fillings

Composite resin fillings are the natural tooth colored plastic based filling material we use for everyday fillings. Modern composite resin comes in a variety of colours and consistencies making restorations an economical, versatile, affordable and effective option.

Glass Ionomer Cements

These materials do not have the physical strength of composite resin materials but have other therapeutic benefits such as acid resistance and fluoride release. At our clinic these materials are mostly used in conjunction with resin composites as a base or liner for their therapeutic benefit in specific cases.

Porcelain / Ceramics

For larger or more complex restorations where strength, aesthetics and longevity are important ceramics offer significantly more strength than composite resin restorations and are longer lasting. They also offer superior aesthetics and and more wear resistance over time to maintain their appearance for the long run.

Metals

The strongest and most durable materials we have in dentistry are still our metals. This includes gold, cobalt chrome and other non precious metal restorations. These all have obvious metal appearances and are not suited to aesthetic cases.

Reinforcing a root canal treated tooth with a porcelain crown -

Case Study

Following root canal treatment this tooth was left in a weakened state. So we reinforced it with a porcelain crown to help it last for the long term. We manufactured this crown in-house using a CEREC machine and the treatment was completed in a single visit.

Root canal treatment results in weakening of the tooth structure. It will be more susceptible to fracture and will have a shorter lifespan if not properly reinforced. Leading to early tooth loss. This is especially true for most molar and premolar teeth which take a lot of force with everyday eating and chewing. It is recommended that most root canal treated teeth have crowns placed for this reason.

Restoration of severely decayed front teeth with composite resin and whitening

Case Study

This case shows severely decayed upper front teeth that are also worn, stained and discolored.

In this situation we decided to manage this case with a scale, clean, polish and some some initial tooth whitening. We then completed the case using layered composite resin restorations/additions to the 6 upper front teeth.

Poor diet and oral care habits can lead to extensive and irreversible decay and damage to your teeth. It can also cause unaesthetic discoloration which can be difficult to treat.
