Restorative treatment

White (composite) Fillings
White (composite) fillings, also known as resin bonding, are the most popular choice in restoring teeth with decay, small chips or large breaks. White Fillings can range from small to full tooth restorations. We use latest and best branded white filling material in the dental market today i.e. GC, 3M, SDI.  Each tooth's restorative need is unique, our dentist can discuss with you the best filling material suitable for your teeth.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns (or caps) are full coverage restorations used to stabilise a weakened tooth. A broken, chipped and heavily filled tooth can be crowned to increase strength and durability.  Bridges are multiple crowns, joined in one piece, to be used to replace missing tooth/teeth. Bridges are a non-removable option for replacing teeth as opposed to wearing a partial denture or plate. Our clinic only uses crowns that are of top quality material, aesthetics, and are all Australian made.

Dental Implants
Dental Implant is an optimal choice of treatment as replacement of single missing tooth. A titanium screw is placed in the bone to which a tooth coloured crown is placed. It can restore chewing and provide full strength of a bite and yet feel and look natural like a tooth.

Implants can also support fixed bridge work, or improve denture retention. At Edwardes Street Dental, we offer implant replacement of missing teeth at a very affordable cost.

Root canal treatment
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment,  is a series of appointments involving removal of the pulpal tissue to eliminate infection or inflammation, and dressing of the pulp chamber with dental materials. This procedure can often save the tooth from extraction after it has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or injury.

Smoking

  • A major problem of smoking is that it tends to disguise the damage taking place to teeth and gums. 
  • Smokers are six times more likely to have serious gum (periodontal) disease that can involve not just the pink gum but also the supporting bone and the membrane that holds the teeth in place. 
  • Most important to understand is that smoking can hide the signs of gum disease for years and the condition can be very advanced before a smoker notices any damage.
