Here at Apple’s Portobello dental clinic, we offer a range of restorative dentistry measures to remedy issues that impede the function of your teeth. Dental fillings, dental bonding, and dental bridges are just a few of these treatments. Our staff will walk you through each process from beginning to end and help get your oral health back on track.
Dental bonding, also known as tooth or teeth bonding, falls under the branch of adhesive dentistry. This process involves applying a special material, which is typically made of porcelain or resin, to your damaged teeth and reshaping it to create a new look.
This treatment is a great solution if you have gaps in your teeth. Once installed, these devices not only improve the aesthetic of your smile but allow your teeth to function as they normally should. Additionally, dental bridges help reduce cavities and decay.
When your teeth require protection, dental crowns are a wonderful choice to consider. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that can be made of metal, porcelain, or resin amongst other materials, that fits over your tooth so that you can chew, brush and floss properly.
Many people have received at least one dental filling in their lifetime, making this a very common treatment. As the name suggests, dental fillings are used to fill in a hole within your tooth. This helps reduce plaque and tartar build-up and halts the infection from spreading within your tooth. Our dental clinic offers both composite and silver amalgam fillings.
Inlays and Onlays
When your tooth is damaged, but a dental filling isn’t a suitable solution, dental inlays and onlays are a good alternative. Inlays are placed within your tooth and onlays are applied over its surface. This reduces the potential of other cavities arising in the future.
A venlay restoration is quite similar to receiving porcelain veneers but doesn’t require scraping the enamel off the surface of your teeth. Venlays can be applied to teeth along the top and bottom of your mouth and is a non-invasive treatment. This process also aids in facial lifting and improves your bite.
