Restorative Dentistry in Orange, NSW
Restorative dentistry is the term for any dental procedure used to replace missing teeth or repair damaged tooth structure. It can make a huge difference in a patients’ life by improving the appearance and function of his or her teeth. Restorative dentistry includes the use of fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, or dentures. Curious about these options and how these can benefit your mouth and teeth?

Bridges are prosthetic teeth since they “bridge” the gap between your healthy and intact teeth. The false teeth can be made of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of materials and they are held in place on either side with crowns. These have the benefit of being convenient, simple to put in place, and cost efficient.
Crowns are placed on the top of the teeth, acting as a “cap” to cover the tooth and restore it to proper size, shape, and strength. They can be used in conjunction with bridges and implants. Crowns can also be used when a tooth’s ongoing health is affected by a large cavity. Restorative materials such metal, porcelain, or gold are used to form the crown. Crowns are used to cover and protect the teeth as an alternative to fillings.
Dental implants are used to replace the root of the tooth. These help anchor a permanent or removable false tooth to the gums to provide a strong foundation for appearance, comfort and function. These implants are made of metal and inserted into the bone socket. These dental implants are good for replacing damaged or missing teeth.
Dentures are sets of false teeth. There are two types of dentures available which are complete dentures that replace the full set of teeth to partial dentures to fill in the gaps between remaining natural teeth. Dentures are custom designed to mimic the appearance of the original teeth with possibly adhesives to improve stability. Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth and can be easily removed when needed.

Fillings, or dental restoration, are used to restore the integrity of the tooth structure. This treatment is typically used to replace part of the tooth that has decayed (due to a cavity) or damage from trauma. Fillings can also be performed after root canals. They can be made of many different materials such as gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, and composite resin. If you think you need a filling to treat a small hole or cavity, please get in touch with our oral health professionals.
