Tooth-coloured restorations

We believe there is nothing more attractive than a healthy mouth where the teeth look and function like they are naturally designed to.

What is a tooth restoration?

Sometimes due to damage or decay, teeth need to be repaired by a dentist. There are a number of techniques that we use to ensure their health and stability in the mouth. The colour of the restorative material that we use to repair teeth plays an important role in making them look fake or natural. 

We always use advanced materials to create tooth-coloured restorations, improving the health and appearance of the teeth making sure that your dental work is much less noticeable. So no more visible silver fillings, just a naturally beautiful smile!

 

 

What are cavities?

A cavity is caused by bacteria on tooth surfaces and if left untreated, can spread to all the teeth and gums. Small cavities may be simple to repair, but larger cavities can require more extensive treatment. In severe cases, it may not be possible to save the tooth.

Where can cavities develop?

Cavities can develop both on natural teeth and around old restorations. When restorations get cracks and staining, it often means that there is decay forming underneath. If they are not repaired, the tooth wall can fracture which then makes it more difficult to restore. This is why we encourage our patients to attend regular hygiene appointments to prevent any of this from happening. 

What types of restorations can we do?

There are different types of restorations we can use to restore the health of your teeth, depending on your needs.

If you have a cavity, chipped tooth or existing filling or crown that needs to be replaced, we will often recommend having it repaired with a porcelain restoration.

To do this, we have a Cerec (CAD/CAM) milling system which makes your restoration right here in our dental clinic. This means you don’t have to wait as long for your completed restoration to be fitted.

Porcelain restorations are extremely durable because they are formed carefully under heat and pressure. There are no ‘voids’ in the porcelain, which there sometimes can be in lab-fabricated restorations. The final result is a beautiful restored tooth that is both strong and natural-looking.

There are no messy impressions or temporary crowns, and no need for a second visit.
