Tooth Restorations and Fillings | Dandenong
Prosthodontics Specialist Dental Centre specialises in dental restorations and fillings to replace missing teeth or missing parts of the tooth structure.
Teeth can be filled with gold, silver amalgam or tooth-coloured composite resin!
Dental restorations are treatments designed to restore the function, integrity and morphology of teeth that have been damaged by caries or external trauma. There are two types of treatment options: direct restorations and indirect restorations.
Direct restorations involve placing a filling in a prepared tooth cavity and building up the tooth. Indirect restorations include crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays, which are fabricated outside the mouth using dental impressions of the prepared tooth.
Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration
Dental fillings are a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay. The procedure involves removing the decayed tooth material, cleaning the affected area and filling the cavity with a filling material. This can be gold, silver amalgam or a tooth-coloured composite resin.
By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, dental fillings can also help prevent further decay. Visit us to learn more about filling cavities, what to expect and the types of fillings available. We also specialise in teeth cleaning.
