Restorative Dentistry Canley Heights
Dental restorations are made to replace or restore missing teeth or other parts of the tooth structure.
Restorative dentistry involves diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental problems and oral diseases. Your Canley Heights dentist may recommend a customised treatment plan to restore/repair decayed, chipped, broken, discoloured, or even missing tooth/teeth.
Teeth that are affected by any developmental or trauma-related damages can qualify for restorative treatment. Whether it’s a tooth filling, dental implant, crown, or bridge, there are several options available depending on the need.
The Importance of Restorative Dental Treatments
Restorative dental procedures are often performed for the following:
- Filling empty spaces in the mouth, properly aligning teeth
- Repairing damaged teeth, making it easier to maintain good oral care routine to help prevent plaque build-up and other dental problems
- Replacing missing teeth can affect your dental and general health, appearance, and self-esteem

When deciding on a treatment plan, you’ll need to consider your health and your budget. Most dentists recommend keeping your natural teeth before deciding to resort to dental implants or dentures.
Dental implants are screw-like metal posts used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant has two parts: the titanium root and a replacement tooth, similar to a crown.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural tooth.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped cap attached over a tooth to strengthen and protect the tooth structure.
Your Canley Heights dentist prepares the tooth, takes impressions, and the crown is made in a laboratory by a dental technician.
Dental bridges “bridge” the space left by missing teeth. Bridges have crowns on each end as anchors with replacement tooth or teeth connecting the crowns and closing the gap.
They can keep your other teeth from shifting out of place. Once a bridge is attached, it works just like your natural teeth.
The most common way to treat a cavity is to remove the decayed parts and fill the tooth with one of several kinds of filling materials.
These filling materials include porcelain, tooth-coloured resin, gold, or silver amalgam.

Frequently Asked Questions
What tooth replacement options do I have?
Why should I save my tooth, can't I just pull it out?
A tooth can always be extracted; however, if a replacement is not attached in a timely matter, the other teeth left will tend to shift out of place.
Damaged, loosened, or missing tooth can lead to tooth movement, shifting, and bite changes, which are permanent alterations with harmful effects.
