Dentistry as we know it



This is Dr Mark Nieh from Hornsby Dental. Thank you for spending time to read this blog. We aim to provide you with dental information that may interest you. Should you have any questions of topics of interest you would like to discuss, please phone us on (02) 8090 1100


Recent TV media has been covering dentistry a fair bit. Over selling, oversea dental lab work, etc etc. One must always remember a few bad apples do not represent the whole industry. Come in and talk to us about our one-visit eMax crowns, powered by CEREC, made right in front of you. If you feel that a crown is not for you and prefer a less expensive alternative, we can also make a ceramic onlay, instead of a full crown, to strengthen your tooth.

Hornsby Dental Crowns

Abour Crowns and Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that involves entirely covering a tooth with an extremely protective material that is resistant to fractures, extreme temperatures and acidic foods.

Everyday activities such as chewing can put stress on our teeth, and over time this may manifest as visible signs of wear and tear. Although almost unnoticeable to the untrained eye, your dentist may notice faint fracture lines through your teeth, as well as generalised erosion of the surfaces. These are an artificial weak point in the tooth, and if you chew or bite together just a bit too hard, you can accidentally break off part of the tooth. To avoid this unnecessary trauma, your dentist may recommend a crown for the tooth. This will enhance its strength.

Restorative Dentistry

The Restorative Phase – In this phase, all teeth that need work done to them will be treated so no cavities remain, teeth are clean and healthy and stable. The reason why we restore teeth first is to start off with a mouth that is ready to be perfected.


Rehabilitation Phase – This second phase involves choosing and designing the procedures that best suit you. There are several types of enhancing dental treatments, the most common of which are orthodontics, surgical treatment, porcelain veneers, composite veneers and crowns.

Cracked Teeth

A chipped or broken tooth can be saved and repaired to look and feel like the real thing – and perhaps even better! When a tooth gets chipped or fractured, your dentist will consider whether the pulp has been damaged, and determine the ideal route of treatment from there.
