At Alderley Dental, located near Brisbane, we specialise in restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry is all about repairing dental problems to improve both the appearance and function of our patients smile.
Missing Teeth Are Not Just a Problem When You Smile
Over the long-term, if you don’t replace a missing tooth, then your jawbone and surrounding teeth will shrink or shift into that space, causing a ‘sunken face’ appearance, which can make you look older and have a negative impact on your facial structure. This appearance comes along with the loss of dental function, including biting, chewing and talking.
Teeth replacement treatments include:
- Dental implants
- Partial dentures
- Implant-retained dentures
Implant dentistry is considered the gold standard of teeth replacement. Many people, however, prefer a non-surgical alternative, which is why bridges and dentures remain popular choices to complete the smile.
Our bridges and dentures are custom-designed to look completely natural and improve function.
Repairing Decayed and Broken Teeth
We offer a range of dental treatments available to repair damaged teeth by restoring the structural integrity of a patient’s dentition. By restoring the teeth, we provide improved jaw function and a comfortable bite. Properly restored teeth also promote a healthy diet.
Our restorative dentistry options include:
- Tooth-coloured fillings
- Inlays or onlays
- Crowns and bridges
- CEREC – same-day crowns and veneers
- Porcelain veneers
- Root canal treatment
To determine the tooth-coloured restorative dentistry that will improve your smile and comfort, we recommend contacting our Alderley dental practice to arrange a consultation to discuss your specific needs with one of our experienced dentists.
We will provide a full oral evaluation to determine any underlying oral conditions, along with all of the treatment options available. Once we go over the benefits and limitations of each option, you can make a decision that works best for you.
Our dental exams include:
- A tooth-by-tooth exam to identify any broken or damaged teeth
- Digital x-rays to reveal decay and bone loss
- Oral cancer screening
- Periodontal (gum) evaluation
- Consultation for treatment
Before starting restorative dentistry, we treat any instances of gum disease and decay. Beginning with a healthy mouth will give you the most ideal results.
Our approach to our patients is to listen to your situation, concerns and recommend the treatment that will give you the best long-term solution for your budget. We will also estimate the number of appointments necessary to achieve your goals for your smile.
