If teeth are decayed, chipped, or broken, they can be repaired by the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre in Melbourne.
The Cosmetic Dentistry Centre provides extensive restorative dentistry services, ensuring your teeth are healthy and strong. Tooth pain and discomfort is aggravating, and issues associated with tooth pain (such as increased sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks) can begin to disrupt your daily activities. At the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre, we are committed to providing quality, comprehensive dental care, relieving any discomfort and restoring your teeth back to full functionality. We use industry leading technology, including to ensure a pain-free, stress-free appointment.
Restorative dentistry is what many would consider traditional dentistry, such as filling cavities, installing crowns and bridges, root canals and dentures.
If you have a damaged tooth which needs to be repaired, a crown or bridge may be the best solution for your situation. The Cosmetic Dentistry Centre team may recommend a crown to:
- Restore a Fractured Tooth
- Protect Weak Teeth From Fracturing
- Replace a Filling When Not Enough Tooth Remains
- Attach a Bridge
- Cover Discoloured/Misshaped Teeth
- Restore a Dental Implant
- Cover a Tooth Treated by a Root Canal
While a crown is used to cover a damaged tooth, a bridge or implants are typically recommended to replace one or more missing teeth.
Teeth Fillings (white fillings)
Composite resin is the popular choice for filling cavities. Our composite resin fillings mimic the appearance of your natural tooth, making your filling nearly impossible to see. Our team at the Cosmetic Dentistry Centre will get your teeth back on track quickly and pain-free.
White fillings are more popular than silver amalgam because they match the natural colour of your teeth, hiding your filling almost completely. Composite fillings provide several benefits when compared to other filling materials, it’s bonded directly to the tooth so your teeth stay strong, and composite fillings typically remove less tooth structure upon insertion. They also generally long lasting.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canals are tiny passage-ways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, travelling their way vertically downward, until they reach the tip of the root.
All teeth have between one and four root canals.
Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.
A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem. However, inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess.
Root canal treatment is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth. In fact, root canal treatment is designed to save a problem tooth; before the procedure was developed and gained acceptance, the only alternative for treating a diseased tooth was extraction.
