Restorative Dentistry Glen Waverley

Restorative dentistry aims to restore your natural smile and prevent oral health issues by replacing your lost teeth using permanent fixtures like dental implants, crowns, and bridges, or removable ones like dentures.

White Fillings 

White fillings, also called tooth-coloured fillings, are used to repair a tooth that has been affected by decay, cracks, or fractures.

There are different types of filling materials available nowadays, but the most common of all are composite and silver amalgam.

If you want the dental filling to match the colour of your teeth, composite fillings are the best option.

Composite fillings are the most widely used type of filling material. Because of their colour, they can be closely matched to the colour of natural teeth.

Also, white fillings are more aesthetically suited for use in front teeth or other visible areas.

With the finest filling material and proper care at home, your dental fillings can last for many years.

Silver Fillings

Dental fillings are among the most popular treatments to restore your teeth and smile.

They replace the portion of the tooth that has been damaged due to cracks or tooth decay. One option to restore the tooth is silver amalgam filling.

Amalgam has been used for more than 100 years. Also referred to as silver filling, amalgam is a mixture of mercury, tin, copper and silver.

Because of its strength, resistance to wear, and affordability, silver fillings are still a great choice for many patients.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays restore a significant amount of tooth structure that has been damaged due to decay or trauma.

They are more conservative solutions than dental crowns because inlays and onlays require a minimal amount of tooth structure to be removed.

Inlays are smaller restorations that treat decay within the cusps of the tooth, while onlays are bigger restorations and sit on top of the remaining structure of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays can be created out of porcelain, gold, or composite. If you are a qualified candidate, your Glen Waverley dentist will determine which material is suitable for you.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are versatile tooth restorations. The protective cap covers the entire visible portion of the tooth to enhance its strength, size, and appearance.

Crowns are used to repair broken or decayed teeth that can no longer be fixed with dental fillings.

Dental crown materials can be made of metal, full ceramic, or composite. The material used will depend on the reason you are getting the crown.

Dental Bridges

Having missing teeth brings discomfort when smiling, talking, and even eating your favourite foods. Missing teeth, if ignored, can lead to various oral health problems.

Fortunately, there are several options to address this dental issue. One of the treatment options is a dental bridge.

Bridges are composed of several false teeth connected and secured together by dental crowns. The bridge fits between two natural teeth to ‘bridge’ the gap left by missing teeth.

If you don’t choose implants or dentures for your missing teeth, a dental bridge is a good alternative.

Dental Implants

When it comes to treatments for missing teeth, dental implants hold the top spot. Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss.

They can replace one or more missing teeth and in some cases, the entire upper or lower arch of teeth.

The biggest advantage of dental implants compared to other restorations is the way they look, feel, and function.

Implants are usually made of biocompatible material like titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone to fill the gap caused by missing teeth and replace the missing tooth roots.

Had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Lydia Tseng a month ago. Was extremely nervous but she was so very kind and gentle, I dare say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire procedure. All thanks to this super patient dentist. Thank you so much. I might actually be nearly happy about my next visit 🤞🏼😆

Our family have already attended the EK dental surgery with Dr. Lydia for a couple of years. Dr. Lydia is our best choice after compared with other dentists, especially on children’s dental care. She is very patient and very professional on children’s noncooperation. She explained the treatment clearly and given us good advice. She is always gentle when checked teeth. She used a lot of strategies to help my son for relaxing and be comfortable while filling a tooth. My son was very resistant to see dentist because he had a bad experience in another clinics before, but Dr. Lydia was very patient and given my son a lot encouragement. I highly recommended Dr. Lydia
