Restorative Dentistry

Teeth can suffer damage in a number of ways, from decay to trauma or from ‘wear and tear’. At Triangle we always prefer to save teeth wherever possible, and we utilise a wide range of techniques and materials to help us achieve this.

Fillings


The science of dental materials is a rapidly changing field allowing a huge range of newer, more aesthetic options for filling teeth.

The days of ugly metal amalgam fillings have been eclipsed by the newer breeds of tough tooth-coloured composite materials, ceramic inlays and gold inlays.

If you need a filling the most appropriate options will be suggested and discussed, and your preferences will always be listened to.

Crowns and Inlays
When a tooth has become extensively broken down a crown (or ‘cap’) or inlay may be the best way of restoring it. A crown covers the whole of the tooth thus protecting it from further damage. An inlay is used to restore a tooth that is less extensively damaged, but again provides protection from breaking down in the future.

Crowns and inlays are made from a variety of materials, most commonly tooth-coloured porcelain or gold.

Bridges


A bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth, and is a permanent fixture in the mouth. They are made from tooth-coloured porcelain to be an exact match to the patient’s natural teeth.
