Restorative Dentistry at Westbourne Centre

What is a restorative dental treatment?

A restorative dental treatment repairs and restores damaged oral structures. This can include missing, decayed, weakened, and fractured teeth.

It includes the dental specialties of:

  • Endodontics – for root canal treatments and other inner tooth procedures and examinations.
  • Periodontics – the prevention and treatment of gum disease and other tissues around your tooth.
  • Prosthodontics - simple and complex restorative work to replace your teeth.

Dental restorative treatments include:

  • Fillings – are the most common restorative dentistry procedure. They fill a cavity in your tooth to structurally repair and stabilise it. The most common fillings are amalgam (metal) or composite (white).
  • Bridges – replace a missing tooth with a false tooth and ‘bridge’ the gap. A bridge is bonded to your natural teeth on either side of the gap. There are two main types of dental bridge. The most common type involves permanently bonding two crowns, made of porcelain or metal, to your natural teeth on either side of the space, with the false tooth (or teeth) in the middle.
  • Crowns (or caps) - are a cover for your entire tooth, down to your gum line, to protect it if it has suffered significant decay and is irreparable with fillings.
  • Dentures - are removable false teeth made of acrylic, nylon, or metal that fit over your gums to replace missing teeth. They resolve eating and speaking problems caused by missing teeth.
  • Implants – is a titanium screw that is placed into your jawbone to replace your missing tooth root. A false tooth (a crown) is then fitted to the top of the implant. The crown can be matched to the colour and shape of your existing teeth.
  • Root canal treatment – removes the infection from inside your root canal system, fills the root canal, and seals the tooth with a filling or crown to stop it from becoming infected again. Full treatment can involve two or three visits to your dentist.
