Types of Restorative Dentistry Services
Thanks to the modern advancements in dental technology, there are a variety of options available to you for restorative dentistry.
Here are some of the restorative dental treatments we offer here at Art De Dente Melbourne CBD:
Whether they are amalgam or composite, fillings are the most common restorative dentistry we see.
These are used to structurally repair and stabilise a tooth that has been deteriorated from cavities and decay.
If the tooth has suffered significant decay and is irreparable through fillings, it may be time for dental crowns.
The restorative processes involve constructing a “cap” that covers the entire tooth down to the gumline to protect it from further damage.
Like crowns, dental bridges are used to cover an area that has suffered a tooth extraction.
It involves crowns that are merged together and then bonded to the nearest healthy teeth on either side of the gap to “bridge” the missing tooth with a replacement.
When the damage is significant, dental implants may be a viable option. This involves replacing existing tooth structures with implanted replacement teeth.
These are attached by a metal screw-like post that is essentially bonded to your jawbone via a screw-like metal “root.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What is restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry repairs and restores damaged and/or missing teeth. Restorative dental treatments like fillings, crowns, and root canal treatment repair the decay of cavities and other damages to the tooth structure, and dental implants can prevent the harmful effects of missing teeth.
Should I have my teeth extracted instead of saving them?
We always tell our patients they are better off with their natural teeth than replacement teeth because no matter how advanced technology gets, there’s no substitute for the real ones — having teeth extracted can cause problems like bone density loss in the jaw, which affects the patient’s appearance and eventually makes them appear older than they really are.
How do I care for my dental restorations?
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day.
- Electric toothbrushes can help remove plaque from teeth and restorative work.
- Make sure to floss around your teeth and restorative work.
- Do not chew on hard or sticky foods. These can damage your dental restorations.
- Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash to help fight plaque bacteria around restorative work.
