restorations or ‘Tooth colored fillings’ are the
alternative to the silver/mercury fillings that we are
all familiar with. They are composed of a particle
filled resin that is very similar to the hardness and
consistency of tooth structure. Composite resins can be
used to fill new cavities or replace worn out old
fillings. The resins are available in many shades so
that they can match your own tooth color. They are
‘cured’ or hardened with a special light so that they
are fully functional immediately after being placed.
are the new alternative to caps or crowns. These are
made by lab technicians and then bonded onto your tooth.
Porcelain onlays are rather like having a new top made
for your broken or worn down tooth. Onlays are
conservative, so they do not require much drilling on
your tooth. They have no metal in them, so they are very
natural looking and they are bonded in place so that
they seal out bacteria from the sensitive parts of your
tooth. Porcelain onlays are used to restore badly
damaged or broken down teeth or to strengthen teeth
weakened by very large fillings.
Dental bridges are a
permanent tooth replacement system that uses the teeth on
either side of a gap to support a replacement tooth.
Bridges are strong enough to replace molars for heavy
chewing and beautiful enough to restore a damaged smile.
