Restorative Dentistry Broken Teeth Crowns Bridges Dentures Cerec – 1 Visit Restoration Dental disease or traumatic injury can definitely ruin a smile. It does not need to be permanent. Advancement in dental treatments can restore a patient’s dental appearance. By having more choices, we can perform dental restoration to repair worn, decayed damaged or missing teeth to restore your healthy and beautiful smile. Direct Restoration We provide direct tooth restoration by placing a soft or malleable filling into a prepared tooth cavity immediately and before the materials sets hard. This procedure can be done in one dental visit from us. We will help you choose from a variety of filling options based on the type and location of the filling found on your teeth. To illustrate, glass or resin ionomers are often used as substitutes placed near the tooth root or other areas which does not involve heavy pressure caused by chewing. Otherwise, we will use the amalgam which is a combination of metals. It has been the most popular and effective filling material used in dentistry for the last 150 years and millions of people worldwide have amalgam fillings. Indirect Restoration We advise an indirect tooth restoration when a larger volume or extensive area of the tooth needs to be replaced. It mainly involves customised tooth replacements such as crowns, onlays, or inlays. We suggest a crown to cover the entire chewing surface of a tooth. We will require more than one visit with us since an indirect tooth restoration because the inlay or onlay must be fabricated in a dental laboratory. An inlay is placed within the cusps of the tooth. Meanwhile, an onlay covers one or more cusp tip. Both includes portion of the chewing surface. Crowns, inlays and onlays are made from an array of materials. Basically, gold is still used for some inlays. Others prefer or are more concerned having white teeth. As such, we offer porcelain and tooth-coloured composite resins as options. Prosthodontics Our facilities are able to provide you prosthodontics. It is also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry. We can offer you the following services depending on your needs. Removable Partials Dentures If you need removable partial dentures, it will have a metal framework and clasps that will connect to your teeth and attached to a pink or gum-coloured plastic bases. It may feel awkward and bulky at first and this is normal. Flexible Partial Dentures Flexible partials is a solution we provide to replace one or more teeth. Using this type of dentures, it does not require any uncomfortable metal clasps to keep them in place. It is made of nylon which makes them flexible and found to be resistant and durable.

Complete Dentures Commonly known as false teeth; we provide complete dentures to replace the function and look of the teeth after the original teeth are removed and gum tissues are healed. This could take several months as we will prepare you physically and psychologically in using the complete dentures. We believe that the transition is important as it can be traumatic to some.
