Restorative dentistry refers to the “restoration” or rebuilding of your teeth which have been damaged by dental caries (decay) or by traumatic injury but can also include restoring or improving the appearance, shape, alignment or colour of your teeth (see cosmetics). Restorative dentistry at our Hobart clinic consists of the restoration of both the function and appearance of your teeth.
Crown and Bridge
Dental crowns are a great option to improve your smile by preserving the functionality of damaged teeth while dental bridges are an excellent option to replace a missing tooth.
Bonding is permanently attaching dental materials to your teeth using dental adhesives and a high-intensity curing light.
We look after both the construction and maintenance of full and partial removable dentures.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are a conservative alternative to dental crowns. They are often used instead of fillings to treat decay or similar damage to the teeth.
EXTRACTIONS & ORAL SURGERY
We look after many simple extractions in-house, under local anaesthesia as determined by the dentist and you. We may need to refer more complex cases to an oral surgeon.
