Restoring teeth canberra

Teeth Restorations

Restoration is a term used in dentistry to describe the repair of a missing or damaged tooth structure and restore a tooth or teeth to its original form, function & strength.

Broken down into direct or indirect are techniques below used at Mawson Dental Care to give you a healthy happy smile.

Direct Restoration
Direct restoration means the dental work is fabricated and completed within the mouth.

  • Fillings – a filling is a malleable substance that is placed into a prepared and cleaned cavity. The substance is then hardened to restore the structure (and sometimes appearance) of the damaged tooth. Fillings are one of the more traditional ways to repair a tooth and is the least invasive.
  • Bonding – is used to repair cracks, reshape teeth, or reduce gaps between teeth. The bonding agent is shaped and tinted to match the optimal aesthetic of the tooth and then dried in the mouth with a curing lamp.

Indirect Restoration
Indirect restoration, the fabrication occurs outside of the mouth.

  • Veneers – Porcelain Veneers consist of a layer of composite or dental porcelain material placed over the front surfaces of teeth to replicate a natural look of teeth. They act as a shell that covers the external layer of your teeth to improve appearance or to defend the tooth’s surface from impairment. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
  • Implants – Implants are a great choice if you are missing one or more than teeth. Missing teeth can drastically affect your appearance but dental implants can prevent this. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into the gum line so that replacement teeth can be supported providing a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
  • Crowns & Bridges – Crowns Sometimes known as ‘caps’. Crowns are permanently fixed onto existing teeth or implants for restorations either cosmetic, to strengthen fractured teeth or act as a replacement for large fillings. Porcelain crowns are matched to the natural colour of your teeth so they blend in perfectly.
  • Bridges – Bridges are primarily used to replace one or more missing teeth. Like crowns, bridges are a great choice because unlike a partial denture they are permanently cemented in place and can be colour matched to the colour of existing teeth.
