How Restorative Dentistry Can 'Fit' Your Needs
Restorative Dentistry Casula
Restorative dentistry focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental problems and oral diseases.
Your Casula dentist may recommend a personalised treatment plan to restore/repair chipped, broken, discoloured, or even missing tooth/teeth.
Teeth affected by developmental or trauma-related damages can qualify for restorative treatment.
Whether it’s a dental filling, implant, crown, or bridge, there are several different options available depending on the need.
The Importance of Restorative Dental Treatments
Restorative dental treatments are often performed for the following purposes:
- Filling empty spaces/gaps in the mouth, properly aligning teeth
- Repairing damaged teeth, making it easier to maintain oral hygiene to help prevent plaque build-up and other serious dental problems
- Replacing missing teeth can improve your dental and overall health, appearance, and self-confidence
Our Restorative Dentistry Services in Casula
Most dentists recommend keeping your natural teeth before deciding on replacing them with restorations.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps attached over a tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth structure.
Your Casula dentist prepares the tooth, takes impressions, and the crown is made in a laboratory by a dental technician.
Dental bridges close the space left by missing or damaged teeth. Bridges have crowns on both ends as anchors with replacement tooth or teeth connecting the crowns.
They can keep your other teeth from moving out of place. Once the bridge is attached, it works just like your natural teeth.
The most common way to address a decayed tooth is by removing the decayed parts and filling the tooth with a material.
These filling materials include porcelain, tooth-coloured resin, gold, or silver amalgam.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What tooth replacement options do I have?
Removable options are full and partial dentures. Fixed options include dental implants, crowns, bridges and fillings.
Why should I save my tooth, can't I just pull it out?
A tooth can always be extracted; however, if a replacement is not attached in a timely matter, the other teeth left will tend to shift out of place.
Damaged, loosened, or missing tooth can lead to tooth movement, shifting, and bite changes, which are permanent alterations with harmful effects.
