A dental restoration or dental filling is used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. Generally, caries, trauma, or cosmetic non-satisfaction result in restorative treatment.
Dental restorations can be divided into two broad types:
Direct restorations and Indirect restorations. All dental restorations can be further classified by their location and size.
At Triniti Dental Clinic, we use tooth coloured filling such as Composite Resins and Glass Ionomers from the major dental companies from Japan and the U.S.A.
The advantage of direct restoration is, they are usually done in one chair session instead of 2 sessions in indirect restorations.
Longevity of these fillings are shorter than the indirect restorations, however, cost is significantly merrier.
When a dentist carefully prepares the tooth for an indirect restoration, our highly skilled dental laboratory technicians in Sydney create the restoration material custom fitting only to your tooth that is prepared. The advantage of indirect restoration is its longevity, strength and often the cosmetic value due to high detailed work in the lab.
Indirect restoration is gaining its popularity due to above reasons.
