At Bespoke Dental, ‘Minimally Invasive Dentistry’ is our ethos.
This means that we try to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible when trying to find a solution to a dental problem. By removing less tooth structure during dental treatments, the tooth will be healthier and is less likely to suffer from nerve complications in the future.
Our restorative dentists have completed extensive additional training to ensure that they are proficient in this field of dentistry and are able to deliver the best standard of care for our patients.
Want your tooth to still look like a tooth after dental treatment? Well, luckily for you, black fillings are a thing of the past.
Composite restorations, also known as tooth-coloured fillings, are dental restorations that are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, chipping, or other issues. They are made of a composite resin material that can be matched to the colour of your natural teeth for a seamless and natural-looking result.
Composite restorations are a popular choice for patients because they are durable, long-lasting, and can be placed in a single appointment.
The process of getting a composite restoration begins with the removal of any decay or damaged tooth structure. Once the tooth has been prepared, the composite resin material is applied in layers and cured with a special light to harden it. The restoration is then shaped and polished to match the natural contours of your tooth.
Composite restorations can be used to repair both front and back teeth and can be used to replace traditional silver amalgam fillings. They are also commonly used for cosmetic purposes, such as to improve the appearance of misshapen or discoloured teeth.
Ceramic restorations, such as onlays, inlays, and crowns, are dental restorations that are made of ceramic material and are used to repair teeth that have been weakened or heavily damaged by decay, fractures, or other issues. Ceramic restorations are custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit the specific contours of your teeth and provide a natural-looking result. They are bonded to your teeth using a special adhesive, which helps to strengthen the tooth and protect it from further damage.
If your tooth is weaker and more heavily broken down, your dentist may recommend a ceramic restoration instead of a white composite filling. This is because ceramic restorations provide a stronger and more durable solution that can better withstand the forces of chewing and biting. Ceramic restorations can also help to preserve the remaining tooth structure and prevent further damage, which can ultimately save you time and money in the long run.
