Dental Restoration for Adults
Tooth structure can be missing due to decay, deterioration of a previously placed restoration, or fracture of a teeth. A Dental Restoration is a treatment that restores teeth to its normal function and shape while preventing further decay.
Restoring a tooth to good form and function requires two steps:
- Preparing the tooth for placement of restorative material or materials, and
- Restoration of these materials.
Restorative material is also used to repair cracked or broken teeth and teeth that have been worn down from misuse (such as from nail-biting or tooth grinding).
Fillings are the most common type of dental restoration. The tooth can be restored with gold, silver amalgam, or tooth-coloured plastic materials called composite resin fillings.
This procedure can be done in a single office visit.

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade. Whitening products contain one of two tooth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the colour less concentrated and your teeth brighter. Whitening is a one-time procedure performed by a dentist. It is amongst the most common and widely adopted cosmetic procedure. With the advent of the latest Dental technology, we have advanced whitening treatment procedures which give reliable and long-lasting results.
For better results do get it done from a trained dental professional.

Tooth Coloured Laser Filling
Composite resins, or “tooth-coloured dental fillings,” have several advantages over metal fillings. The composite bonds to the tooth structure, so the filling adds strength and protects the tooth. Besides, composite restorations allow us to restore teeth to their original shape and colour. The aesthetic restorations would ensure high superiority in both appearance and performance. We certainly enhance your dental esthetics to an unexpectedly higher grade. The tooth coloured filling material is highly biocompatible and durable to stay in the oral cavity forever.
A tooth fracture is a break or cracks in the hard shell of the tooth. The outer covering of the tooth is called the enamel. It protects the softer inner pulp of the tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels. Depending on the type of fracture, the tooth may not cause any problems or cause pain.
Teeth cannot heal. The treatment goal is to protect the tooth and the pulp interior.
Talk with your dentist about the best treatment plan for you. The treatment will depend on the severity of damage to the tooth. Options may include:
- Crown—A cap is placed over the tooth. A temporary crown will be placed at first to make sure it corrects the problem. A permanent crown will eventually be placed.
- Dental Veneer—A thin covering that is placed over the tooth if you have a small chip in the surface.
- Root canal—May be needed if there is severe damage to the pulp. A root canal clears out the damaged pulp and places a new filler in the tooth.
- Tooth extraction—The tooth may need to be removed if the crack extends below the gum line.
- Removal of the fractured portion—May be possible in vertical root fracture.
