Tooth Bonding in the Melbourne CBD
If you have chipped, broken or damaged teeth, it can make mealtimes stressful. It can make conversations difficult, and it can even promote further dental health complications, like more tooth loss.
Our dentist in Melbourne wants you to enjoy meals, feel good about your smile and take proactive measures to help prevent future complications.
Tooth-Coloured Fillings and Tooth Bonding in Melbourne
When teeth are decayed, broken down or chipped, and there is sufficient natural tooth left, it may be possible to simply restore it with a filling, inlay or onlay and even a dental crown.
Fillings are direct restorations to repair a damaged tooth and to prevent possible further consequences such as infections or fractures. At Dimos Dental, we use resin fillings that provide a durable and aesthetic result. These fillings match your smile and are not the silver amalgam fillings of the past.
We can also use composite material to repair or conceal a cracked, discoloured, or flawed tooth. Our composite resin, coupled with a special light, is an inexpensive cosmetic option for your tooth or teeth.
Composite resin restorations utilise the most modern adhesive techniques (‘bonding’) to restore the structural, biomechanical and aesthetic integrity of teeth. These restorations are used for a variety of purposes:
- Used for smaller tooth-coloured restorations
- Bonding to restore a chipped tooth
- Can also ‘veneer’ a front tooth (composite resin veneers)
- Available in various shades to match your tooth colour
- The procedure typically takes one visit
CEREC™ Same Day Dental Technology in Melbourne
Using our CEREC™ technology, we can offer our patients porcelain inlays or onlays in one visit, providing superior strength and aesthetics compared to resin fillings.
With CEREC™ technology, we can also create same-day tooth crowns.
Your dentist takes impressions of your teeth using digital technology—this means no messy or goopy impression materials. We send the results to our on-site computer and lab, which produces your restoration while you wait—typically on the same day. Your dentist in Melbourne provides a final fit and polish, and you are all set.
Reducing Your Risks for Tooth Breakage and Damage
We recommend visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and teeth cleans and adopting a good oral care regimen at home.
Exams help your dentist spot problems early, and teeth cleans find a member of our team clearing away the very ingredients that can lead to cavities and oral health complications—specifically, tartar, bacteria and plaque.
If you suspect you may have bruxism—grinding and clenching your teeth—talk to your dentist in Melbourne about our custom therapies designed to relieve pain, put a stop to the grinding and clenching, and help prevent tooth breakage.
If you’re the sporting type, make sure to wear a mouthguard when competing.
You should also never use your teeth for unintended purposes—twisting off a cap, for example.
