COMPOSITE FILLINGS

– – – – –

Composite fillings are a popular option for repairing a cavity. They are made of plastic (resin) material mixed with fillers, and are suitable for a small to medium-sized cavity. The material is inserted into the cavity in paste form, and set with a special light.

At Gosford Family Dentist, composite fillings are the material of choice due to their natural appearance, durability, and the fact that teeth will strengthen over time as the filling bonds to the tooth structure.

Ceramic and Porcelain Restorations

– – – – –

Ceramic and porcelain are extremely hard, durable materials that mimic the colour of a natural tooth. We may recommend ceramic or porcelain fillings to repair moderately damaged rear teeth, since they are better at withstanding strong grinding or biting pressure.

They are popular filling choices because of increased longevity.

Crowns

– – – – –

Crowns cover your entire tooth for long-term protection. They are recommended under a few different circumstances:

  • A tooth is fractured or an existing filling takes up more than two thirds of an existing tooth structure.
  • A tooth is severely discoloured, to the point it cannot be addressed with normal whiteners or veneers.
  • A tooth has multiple fractures.
  • The anchorage for a bridge, that replaces missing teeth.
  • Following a root canal, when a tooth is weakened and more prone to fracture.

Make sure that you are receiving the restorative dental care you need. Contact us today, and we can help.

Bridges

– – – – –

As tooth loss begins to occur, noticeable changes become apparent with chewing, speaking or smiling. A bridge, also known as a fixed partial prosthesis, remedies these issues by maintaining the natural shape of the tooth, and lessening the stress of the bite.

A bridge replaces missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or a dental implant. Contact us to find out if a bridge is a suitable option for you.
