What is Restorative Dentistry?

Today restorative dental treatments really help us to achieve optimum dental health, function and aesthetics for our patients. Restorative treatment ‘restores’ your teeth and gums to health.

Restorative dental treatment includes fillings, root canals, inlays, onlays, and posts & cores.

From time to time, the teeth can become infected or damaged and then that portion of the tooth needs to be removed and restored.

Restoring the tooth also includes the rehabilitation of the tooth, and helps to preserve its appearance and function, and is often a means of saving the tooth.

Fillings are the most common type of restorations, and are used to restore teeth that have cavities. Traditional metal or silver amalgam fillings are still in use, but they are unsightly and contain toxic mercury.

Also the preparation of the cavity is not conservative, as some mechanical preparations of retention need to be followed.  We recommend white composite fillings which blend in with your natural teeth and are more aesthetic. These fillings are mercury free. The cavity preparation for composite fillings is more conservative  compared to silver amalgam, as we just grind the tooth where it is required, ie the decayed portion.

Your health and well-being should come first, and restorative treatment can make a huge difference to the way you look and feel.
