At City Central Dental, we offer a range of restorative dental treatments for teeth that have been broken, damaged, or worn down.
If you’re worried about the appearance of chips, or even gaps where teeth are missing, dental restoration can give you back your confidence. Even more importantly, professional restorative dentistry will ensure your smile is properly functional – by repairing damaged teeth you’ll have a healthy smile that both looks great and works well.
Our restorative dentistry treatments generally involve the use of high quality fillings, which are made from a variety of different materials.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to it’s normal function and shape. When a filling is required the decay in the tooth is firstly removed. The affected area is then cleaned and then filling material is added to restore the cavity to the original form of the tooth.
Materials commonly used for fillings include:
At City Central Dental we use the most up-to-date materials of composite resin and porcelain, for the best results.
Composite resin fillings are an aesthetically pleasing material that is matched to the same colour as your tooth. The fillings are made of a plastic material mixed with small glass particles and are ‘tooth-coloured’ for a nice natural finish.
The material is placed into the cavity, where it hardens directly in the tooth and is shaped in one appointment. They are suitable for repairing both the front and back teeth.
Porcelain fillings are called inlays or onlays and are produced to order in a laboratory and then cemented to the tooth. They are matched to the colour of the tooth and are very strong but are a more expensive choice, requiring multiple visits.
Your restoration work may also include dental crowns and bridges and/or cosmetic dentistry techniques, depending on the extent of damage. Your City Central dentist will talk to you about the best materials and treatments for your individual needs during your appointment.
