Dental Fillings & Restorations
We offer tooth-coloured dental fillings and dental restorations as our main restorative options, whenever possible. Minimally invasive principles and improved adhesive technologies have enabled us to reduce the need for traditional crowns, where a significant amount of tooth tissue reduction can be avoided. Our tooth-coloured restorations are placed following the most up-to-date techniques and materials. They are aesthetic and durable. There are three types of dental materials that we utilise to suit best to your dental cavities.
Hornsby Dental – White Dental Fillings
Patient had a severely decayed and broken down tooth.
Result of the direct restoration, with both the function and aesthetics of the tooth back to normal.
Hornsby Dental Clinic – White Dental Fillings
Severely decayed and broken down tooth, which is basically at the gum line, with virtually no function.
Result of the direct restoration, with both the function and aesthetics of the tooth back to normal. The patient was very happy with the final result.
Hornsby Cosmetic Dentist – Amalgam Fracture (Dental Fillings and Restoration)
Old silver/amalgam filling that appears to have no apparent problem, however our close examination reveals fracture-lines running across the tooth.
Deep recurrent decay accompanied by clearly visible fracture line. Amalgam restorations that have a high mercury content may behave like mercury in a thermometer – expands when termperature rises (hot food and drinks), and shrinks when cold. This can result in cracks of the tooth that is housing the amalgam.
Immediately after amalgam replacement, the tooth is fully functional and highly aesthetic. However given the deep crack that is present underneath the restoration, the tooth is best to have a crown to minimise the risk of tooth fracture.
