Restorative dentistry at Coastal Dental Care
With 13dental practicesacross South East Queensland and Northern NSW, Coastal Dental Care provides a variety of treatments to help patients get the best treatment for their oral health needs.
Our range of restorative treatments:
If you have hadroot canal therapy, chipped or cracked a tooth you may require a dental crown. This is a porcelain restoration that protects your tooth from further damage. It should be noted that a tooth with a dental crown can still suffer from decay and gum disease.
Root Canal Therapy
When a tooth’s pulp becomes diseased or infected, root canal therapy is required to remove the nerve of the tooth. This will enable the patient to keep their natural tooth.
If the tooth is left untreated it is likely the patient will experience swelling, pressure and/or pain. Eventually, the tooth may need to be removed altogether.
A dental bridge is suitable for patients who have one or more missing teeth together. Depending the particular case, the bridge will be secured by implants or by the surrounding teeth or a combination of both.
For a missing tooth or teeth, there is no better solution than dental implant treatment. This replaces both the crown of your tooth and the root.
For patients who are edentulous (have no teeth) a full denture is advisable. Somedental practicesmay offer implant-supported dentures. We recommend contacting your closest Coastal Dental Care practice and ask how they can help you.
Same-day crowns are similar to dental crowns, however the new porcelain crown can be placed in the same appointment. This is thanks to a new technology called a CEREC machine.
