Don't Let the Damage Affect Your Smile. Restore It With Our Restorative Dentistry Services.

Neglecting dental hygiene and certain habits can result in oral problems, which can risk one’s dental health.

Many people deal with tooth decay, cavities, tooth loss, or damaged teeth, which can be a real pain and may lead to more serious complications if left unchecked by a dental professional. In most cases, the dentist will recommend ways to preserve the affected teeth or replace them with dental prosthetics if the damage is too extensive.

Joondana Family Dental offers restorative dentistry services that focus on providing treatments to preserve natural teeth and replace severely damaged or missing teeth. We use a variety of techniques, depending on the extent of the damage. The dentist can create suitable dental restorations to restore back the function of the teeth. The main goal is to save oral health and prevent further complications. If you think you need such dental services, let the dentists in our office evaluate your teeth and create a treatment plan for you.

Our Services Under Restorative Dentistry

Dental Fillings

We provide dental fillings to preserve decayed teeth, cavities, or chipped. This treatment involves eliminating the decayed part and filling the area with top-quality materials, either composite resin, biocompatible metals, porcelain, or a combination. Joondanna Family Dental Clinic uses cutting-edge technology to deliver durable restorations for patients. The dentist also matches the dental fillings to the natural teeth so they can be barely noticeable and brings back the beauty of one's smile.

Dentures

Joondanna Family Dental provides options for individuals with missing teeth. The dentists in our office use advanced technology to take impressions of the teeth, which will be a basis to customise the dentures. This way allows us to create a dental plan with a personal touch. Moreover, our dental clinic offers a wide range of denture styles and materials so patients can find a suitable option for their needs—partial, full, traditional, or modern types of dentures are also available in our clinic.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be an excellent way to restore the function of the teeth and regain a beautiful smile. They are designed to recover teeth with large cavities or replace substantial missing tooth structures. These tooth-coloured "caps" can fit the entire tooth, restoring its ideal shape, size, and better function. Our dental clinic is equipped with modern techniques to deliver long-lasting dental crowns that may look and feel great in the mouth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges consist of false teeth (pontics), with dental crowns on either side that can fit over the natural teeth for support. The placement may involve preparing the adjacent teeth that will hold the teeth replacement. Then, the pontics will sit directly in the empty gap (literally creating a bridge between the space). These are non-removable alternatives to replace one or more missing teeth. Learn more about this type of restorative dentistry at Joondanna Family Dental.

FAQs

FAQs about Restorative Dentistry

Here are the following benefits of dental restorations:

  • Improving smile appearance.
    Having damaged or missing teeth may greatly impact the way you smile and look. But with restorative treatments, the dentist can apply advanced technology to preserve your teeth or customise artificial teeth to complete your teeth. You can show your smile with more confidence.
  • Get relief from dental pain.
    It’s important to seek dental restorations as soon as possible if you have cracked or chipped teeth, as infection can easily penetrate them. Infected teeth can result in a painful toothache, while minor chips can cause sharp edges that may cut your tongue and lips. By receiving appropriate restorative dentistry, you can ease and avoid such discomfort.
  • Prevents further oral health issues.
    Leaving the empty tooth socket for long periods can lead to the misalignment of other remaining teeth. On the other hand, when the decay or damage is too severe, the bacteria can spread in the mouth, leading to more serious complications. The sooner you seek restorative treatment for dental issues, the more likely you’ll be able to preserve your natural teeth and avoid much more severe problems.
  • Saves time and budget.
    Restoring damaged teeth with dental crowns and fillings can be efficient and may save you time from undergoing more invasive dental procedures.

Dental fillings are often necessary due to the following reasons:

  • Tooth cavities.
    The nerves inside the tooth can be exposed and at risk of dying due to cavities and tooth cracks. Dental fillings prevent these complications by protecting the tooth and filling in the hole.
  • Chipped or cracked tooth.
    The dentist can apply the filling material to the tooth surface to rebuild its shape and prevent further damage. Even minor chips and cracks can leave your tooth prone to bacteria or weakening.
  • Tooth discolouration.
    Fillings can also hide unwanted stains on the teeth, restoring their beauty and shine.

These are the common benefits of getting dentures for your missing teeth:

  • Give you a youthful look.
    Whether you’re missing a few teeth or an entire arch, dentures may fill in the missing spaces and give you a full smile. They may help prevent your lips and cheeks from appearing to sag.
  • Improve speech and chewing.
    Even a few missing teeth can make it difficult to enunciate words properly and chew food properly. Dentures help restore both of these functions so that you can talk and eat easily. High-quality dentures are custom-tailoured to fit your mouth to look and feel natural.
  • Simple to use.
    One of the benefits of getting dentures is that they are easy to clean and maintain. Since dentures are removable, you can take them out and brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and special denture cleaner to keep them clean and away from plaque.
Dental crowns are restorations that look like tooth-shaped caps designed to cover the entire tooth. Generally, dentists must prepare the affected tooth, which involves shaving it down to allow the crown to fit, and we use dental bonding to attach it. This false tooth may restore the tooth’s function, strength, shape, and size and protect it from further damage.

In most cases, you may need two dental appointments for dental bridges. The process entails the following:

  • Preparation of the abutment teeth.
    The dentist will reshape the two adjacent teeth on either side of the empty tooth socket. It involves shaving or removing some layer of the enamel surface. This process is essential for making enough room for the crowns that support the bridge.
  • Taking impressions of the teeth.
    Once the abutment teeth are prepared, impressions are made to create a model of your teeth. The dental laboratory will then use the mould or scan as a model to create your bridge, artificial teeth and crowns. While your dental bridge is being made, you will be given a temporary bridge to protect the prepared teeth and gaps.
  • Placement of the dental bridge.
    During your second appointment, your provider will remove the temporary bridge and attach the actual dental bridge. They will be securely placed and carefully checked to ensure they fit your mouth comfortably. If any adjustments are needed, the dentist will make them at this time. You can expect to feel some pressure as the bridge is being placed, but you should not feel any pain.
The answer depends on the type of restorative dental treatment you need. For instance, the price of dental crowns and bridges can be higher than dental fillings. And each cost varies greatly depending on different circumstances. We encourage you to come to Joondanna Family Dental to discuss this in detail during a consultation. We will help you understand the differences between each cost and give you a quotation.
Private health insurance typically provides coverage for some restorative dental treatments under “major dental. Depending on what’s included in your policy, they may cover a portion of the cost. There may be waiting periods and other requirements, so checking with your preferred provider to confirm before undergoing treatment is important. This way, you can prepare better.
