Restorative dentistry

Our teeth go through a lot during our lifetime so it’s no surprise that they can become damaged. Whether it’s through decay or injury, we can repair any damaged teeth.

There are plenty of treatments available at Ivory Dental that can restore smiles, from filling a tooth that has had a cavity or replacing a missing tooth using an implant or bridge.

Fillings

The most common type of restorative treatment are fillings. We use the latest white filling materials, that are very durable and look and feel natural. They are made from a special tooth coloured resin that is applied directly to the tooth.

We also offer white fillings for a more aesthetic treatment. These composite fillings are made from a special tooth-coloured resin that can be applied directly to the tooth.

Crowns

If unsightly teeth are spoiling your smile, crowns can offer a neat and natural cover up. Made from a variety of materials, including metal, porcelain, resin or ceramic, crowns fit over the whole tooth, concealing defects caused by chips, decay and discolouration. They can also be used to support a bridge and can be fixed to an implant.

Bridges

Having a missing tooth can impact confidence, especially if the gap is visible when you smile. Bridges offer a secure solution to replace a missing tooth, using the teeth on either side of the gap to support a false tooth.

A bridge often consists of two crowns supporting a replacement tooth, hence the name, however there are different types and we can use bridges to replace more than one tooth. Custom-made using impressions or scans of your teeth, bridges blend in with your natural teeth and can last many years.

Dentures

Removable dentures do more than replace missing teeth; they also help improve how you eat, speak and enhance your facial shape. You can either have partial dentures for a few missing teeth or full dentures to replace a whole set on the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures hook onto the existing teeth while complete dentures fit into the shape of your mouth.

Implants

We can replace missing teeth with dental implants. These titanium posts act as artificial tooth roots and can support a single crown and a bridge for multiple teeth. Implants can be used to restore a full smile. We can also use implants to support dentures if you want to change from removable false teeth to a more secure alternative.
