Dental Restoration in Victoria

Dental restoration is the art and science of restoring damaged teeth. Crowns, fillings, and bridges repair the damage and restore the appearance of your smile.

Fillings are used to repair cavities or other minor damage to teeth. The filling preserves the strength of the tooth, prevents further decay, and restores the tooth’s appearance. We offer tooth coloured fillings that match your smile.

Crowns completely restore seriously damaged teeth. The crown fits over the injured tooth and looks, feels, and functions like one of your natural teeth. They are made from composite material that is coloured to blend with your smile.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays and onlays are used to repair teeth where a crown isn’t required. They resemble large fillings and are created in a dental lab, then cemented into place in the damaged tooth. Onlays are specially designed inlays that restore the biting strength of molars.

Bridges are used to replace a single or multiple missing teeth. There are many types of bridges, but they all consist of one or more artificial replacement teeth that are attached to your natural teeth. Bridges are designed to look like natural teeth, and they also prevent the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth from shifting out of place.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dentists have used metal fillings to repair teeth for over 100 years. Fillings are safe and low-cost, and they last a long time, which makes them an excellent choice for repairing cavities. Metal fillings contain a small amount of mercury, and there have been concerns that this mercury can be released into the body. However, medical studies show that the extremely small amount of mercury released by metal fillings poses no threat to your health.

If you are concerned about the safety of metal fillings, talk to your dentist. Alternative treatments such as composite fillings may be a solution for you.

Whitening treatments are formulated to whiten natural tooth enamel, so they won’t have an effect on porcelain or ceramic restorations. Your dentist can help you with options to change the colour of your crown or other restoration.

Porcelain or ceramic restorations usually last for ten years or longer. Metal restorations can last longer. How long your restorations last depends on your eating habits and dental hygiene. Restorations are also not as strong as natural teeth, so you should be careful eating hard or sticky foods.
