Each operation is suited to different patients, and after an analysis and clean of your existing teeth, our team will discuss what option would provide the best oral health outcomes.
Two of the most commonly used materials for filling a tooth are plastic resin and ceramic. Plastic filling is what is used often, and it suits many patients perfectly. It’s the cheapest option and takes a short time to do. Their downfall, however, is that they don’t provide structural support, but merely comfort and short term protection against further damage.
Ceramic fillings are recommended as a more long-term option or when more than 30-40% of the tooth needs to be filled. They’re shaped to fit your tooth exactly, provide structural support, and unlike plastic resin fillings, aren’t going to shrink over time. We’re equipped with 3D cameras and 3D milling machines to produce precise filling shapes quickly. Ceramic fillings used to take weeks to perform but we can now have one purpose-built and placed in less than a day.
Getting teeth crowned used to be a tedious procedure, as you had to wear uncomfortable temporary crowns while the permanent ones were being made. Today, we use 3D scanning technology and milling machines to produce perfect fitting, beautiful crowns. This allows us to scan, manufacture and place your crowns all on the same day. For more information on the crowning procedure, visit our page on crowns and veneers.
Our experienced dental surgeons make the tooth extraction process much more comfortable. Our extraction procedures are thorough and ensure that the health of the surrounding bone is maximised for less pain, minimal recovery time and better replacement outcomes. We use numbing in all tooth extractions to ensure minimal pain, and we offer a range of additional options to make the extraction process less intimidating, including the wand, happy gas, twilight sedation and more.
Once your problem tooth has been extracted we can look at implant and other tooth replacement procedures available. Visit our page on implants, dentures and other tooth replacements for more information.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
