Dental Fillings

Made from long-lasting and durable materials, dental fillings are one of the most safe, simple and effective ways to repair damaged teeth. Dental fillings are available in a range of colours to closely match the shade of your natural teeth. We offer dental fillings in a range of colours and materials.

We offer tooth-coloured fillings; unlike silver amalgam fillings, these fillings are bonded/glued onto the tooth surface. They not only look better but provide an excellent seal between the restoration and the remaining tooth, which reduces sensitivity and recurring tooth decay.

Dental Inlays and Overlays

An alternative option to fillings, inlays and overlays tend to be more suitable for teeth that are a part of the chewing surface. They are available in a range of materials and usually last a lot longer than regular fillings.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is a great option for replacing missing teeth. It is a permanent solution and is an aesthetically pleasing way of closing the gap left by a missing tooth. Dental bridges can be made from different materials depending on your required finish.

Dental Crowns and Veneers

A dental crown is used to repair a tooth that is in a state of decay. It can also be used to repair a damaged dental implant. This is often used when a filling or inlay will not be suitable for the tooth in question. Depending on where the crowns are being fitted in your mouth, they can be made from either metal or metal covered in porcelain, or completely from porcelain.

Made from porcelain, a veneer is a thin moulding that will protect your teeth from wear. Veneers can be used to straighten teeth, change the shape or proportion of teeth, close gaps between teeth, restore fractured or chipped teeth and for smile makeovers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of dental fillings?

Dental fillings not only restore teeth damaged by decay but also help prevent further deterioration by sealing off the affected area from bacteria and food particles. They are available in various materials, including composite resin and amalgam, catering to different aesthetic preferences and functional needs.

How do dental inlays and overlays compare to fillings?

Dental inlays and overlays are custom-made restorations typically crafted from ceramic or composite materials. They offer a more extensive repair solution for teeth with larger areas of decay or damage compared to traditional fillings. Inlays fit within the cusps of a tooth, while overlays extend over one or more cusps.

How can dental bridges improve my smile?

Dental bridges are fixed prosthetic devices designed to replace one or more missing teeth. They not only restore the appearance of your smile but also help maintain facial structure and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting out of place. Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or dental implants, providing a stable and durable restoration option.

What are the advantages of dental crowns and veneers

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that encase a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its strength, shape, and appearance. They are often recommended for teeth with extensive decay, large fillings, or fractures. Veneers, on the other hand, are thin shells bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance, covering stains, chips, or gaps with minimal alteration to the natural tooth structure.

How long do dental crowns and bridges typically last?

The longevity of dental crowns and bridges depends on several factors, including oral hygiene practices, chewing habits, and the materials used. With proper care, such as regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups, crowns and bridges can last 10-15 years or more before needing replacement.

Will my dental insurance cover procedures like crowns and bridges?

Dental insurance coverage for crowns, bridges, and other restorative procedures varies depending on your specific insurance plan and the reason for treatment (such as cosmetic vs. functional restoration). Our team can assist in verifying your insurance benefits and provide detailed information on any out-of-pocket costs before proceeding with treatment.
