Restorative Dental Care
There aren’t many people who go through life without needing some kind of restorative treatment for their smile. (Of course, if you know of someone, then we’d love to meet him or her!) That’s why Dr. Chenet and his staff offer a number of different restorative dentistry services to repair or rebuild damaged teeth.
One of the more commonly performed procedures is a tooth-colored filling to repair tooth decay. Unlike a metal filling, this one blends seamlessly with the natural color of your remaining tooth structure. A tooth-colored filling is made of composite resin, a material that comes in numerous shades for Dr. Chenet to mix and blend until the perfect match is found. After gently removing decay from your tooth, the Melbourne dentist disinfects the space and applies an adhesive before filling the tooth. The completed tooth-colored filling is not only aesthetically preferable to its metal counterpart, but also provides a measure of added strength because composite resin bonds with your tooth.
Another common restorative solution is a CEREC same-day dental crown, which completely encapsulates a tooth from the gum line up. A CEREC same-day crown not only protects remaining tooth structure, but also renews tooth function that may have been compromised because of injury or extensive decay.
Dental Implants for Tooth Replacement
When you lose a tooth, the consequences are not only visible above the gum line, but they also impact your jawbone. The root of a tooth stimulates your jaw to continuously generate healthy new bone tissue. If the root is missing, then the bone begins to melt away, leaving you with a facial structure that usually looks sunken and aged.
Dental implants, however, replace both the root and crown of a missing tooth. First, the titanium implant is embedded beneath the open socket and given time to fuse with the surrounding bone tissue. Then, the appropriate tooth restoration is attached. Depending on how many teeth are missing, Dr. Chenet will place a porcelain crown for one tooth, a bridge for several or even an implant-retained denture in the case of a whole arch of missing teeth.
We’re not only here to help you maintain the health of your teeth and gums, we also want to provide the latest treatments available to improve the look of your smile.
To eliminate stains and discoloration, Dr. Chenet relies on Zoom! teeth whitening in the office. With a proprietary bleaching gel and special light activation, Zoom! can dramatically whiten your smile in about one hour. We also offer a take-home whitening kit if you’d prefer to whiten your teeth gradually and more economically at home.
If your smile is marred by chips, breaks or cracks, then consider porcelain veneers or Lumineers®. These are two slightly different types of tooth coverings that Dr. Chenet expertly bonds to the facial side of your smile teeth. Porcelain veneers are slightly thicker than Lumineers and therefore necessitate removing a slim layer of tooth enamel. Lumineers, however, can often be bonded into place without altering your teeth at all.
