Fillings, crowns and veneers

If your teeth have become cracked, worn, broken or decayed we have a range of treatment options to help you smile with confidence again.

Types of tooth repair

  • Fillings are an excellent way to repair cavities in your teeth and can help stop toothache and prevent further decay. The procedure involves removing decayed or weakened parts of your tooth and filling the cavity with a tooth-coloured composite or amalgam (filling material). The procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia.
  • Shaped like a natural tooth, crowns are used to improve contour and appearance of teeth after they’ve been damaged. Crowns are custom-made by a dental technician and fit over your existing tooth once it’s been prepared. They can be made of porcelain, gold or a combination, depending on personal choice and its location. The procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia.
  • Similar to fillings, inlays and onlays are durable options for repairing damaged teeth. Custom-made by a dental technician, inlays or onlays are placed onto the surfaces of teeth that are missing due to decay or damage. The procedure is usually done under local anaesthesia.
  • Veneers are an effective way of repairing chipped or uneven teeth. The procedure involves fitting a thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite on any teeth that are chipped, discoloured or misaligned.
  • Digital dentistry using CAD/CAM technology also allows dentists to construct, produce, and insert individual ceramic crowns inlays/onlays directly at the chair side in a single appointment rather than over multiple appointments.
  • To repair a chipped or worn tooth, a modern, tooth-coloured filling material composite resin may be used. Bonded directly onto the tooth surface, the results look natural and provide an excellent restorative option.
