What is a restoration?
Fillings, also known as a dental restoration, are used to restore teeth and treat dental decay. Wear and tear is inevitable in teeth, however regular cleaning, check-ups and a healthy diet can help with the prevention of problems and decay.
How does a restoration work?
Receiving one or multiple fillings is a simple and quick procedure that can be completed in a single dental appointment. The dentist will remove any decay in the affected area. The hole is then cleaned and dried and sealed with the filling material called composite or amalgam. The dentist will match the filling material to the colour of your tooth.
Crowns protect heavily restored teeth and prevent further fracturing. Although the outside of each tooth is made of strong hard enamel, teeth can be chipped, broken or weakened. Crowns are made of a porcelain material, which is strong and durable and made to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth. The procedure is completed in 90 mins at the surgery with our Cad/Cam technology and Cerec machine.
