Restorative Services

W dental are specialists in all areas of major and minor tooth restoration including:

Contact W dental to organise a personal appointment with a caring and professional dentist to discuss what's best for you.


Fillings / Composite Resin

A filling is when artificial material is used to replace parts of the tooth that have been fractured or have been damaged or dissolved by tooth decay.

There are various types of filling that can be used including inlays & onlays and dental bonding (composite resin).

The treatment for decay involves removing all the diseased and infected areas. After this has been completed a hole is left in the tooth which needs to be sealed to protect the remaining tooth from further decay. Metallic fillings (amalgam) can be mixed and then squeezed into the hole, before being pressed into place with small hand instruments to ensure there are no gaps.

Tooth-coloured fillings (composite resins and glass ionomer cements) may also be used. These may set by themselves after a short period or may be set a little bit at a time using a very bright light, which is placed near the filling. Your W Dental professional will adjust the shape of the filling to match the shape of the original tooth.

Inlay / Onlay

Inlays and Onlays are also called "Conservative Indirect Restorations". They are much stronger than other types of fillings and are recommended when a large filling is required.

Before After

With modern technology, unsightly amalgam fillings can be rejuvenated to their pre-filled condition, reviving the tooth to natural strength, wear, function and appearance. Most importantly it can support the tooth and the remaining dentition through the stresses of chewing where some other filling materials cannot.

inlay

Back teeth that have been heavily filled with large silver fillings are at risk of fracturing and can be rebuilt with porcelain Inlay/Onlays preserving the remaining healthy tooth structure.

Contact W dental to organise a personal appointment to determine if inlays or onlays are the best solution for you.

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns are the strongest type of restoration that can be placed in your mouth. These are an artificial cover over the entire surface of the tooth crown (that part of the tooth visible above the gum). Dental Crowns are generally used to restore heavily damaged or filled teeth to their original shape and size. They can also be used to correct bites or for cosmetic reasons.

Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding can be used for correcting small gaps, jagged edges, small blemishes or chipped teeth. The material used in Dental Bonding is called Composite Resin, which is a putty like material that comes in many shades to suit your tooth colour.

Before After

Dentures

Dentures are an older way of replacing missing teeth and probably not the most practical or aesthetically pleasing solution. With dentures, neighbouring teeth will be affected as they are shaped to fit the denture movement.

If you are considering dentures or are having problems with existing dentures, then Contact W dental to organise a personal appointment to determine what's the best solution for you.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a long-term permanent solution to tooth loss. They are a modern, safe way to permanently replace one or more missing teeth.

Before After

Losing your natural teeth is something that can affect your life in a number of ways. Functionally, you can end up with general health problems and may even be unable to eat certain foods. Aesthetically, it may cause you to be more conscious about your smile.

dental implants

The professionals at W dental are focused on optimum outcomes for your implant by using only the highest quality, state-of-the-art implant systems which have been developed from extensive research while implementing strict procedures for surgical preparation & infection control.

The Process

Typically, a titanium implant is surgically placed in the jawbone which is used to anchor the replacement tooth. After several months, the bone grows and integrates with the surface of the implant. Unlike a bridge, a dental implant is not dependent on adjacent teeth for support and can be used in a wide variety of applications.

If you have missing teeth, implants may be a good option for you. They look and function exactly as normal teeth allowing you to talk comfortably, eat all your favorite foods and not suffer from any gum pain as is sometimes the case with dentures.

When can a Dental Implant help you?

  • If you can't chew comfortably and efficiently with conventional dentures.
  • If you've lost teeth and don't want removable partial dentures.
  • If you've lost a single tooth and want a single tooth implant rather than a bridge appliance.
  • If you're now wearing a partial or full denture and would prefer a fixed bridge or fixed-removable appliance.
  • If you have missing teeth and want a permanent replacement that will look and feel natural.

There are two ways to bleach for whiteness:

  • In-Office Bleaching is a procedure performed in the surgery with a bleaching light and specially formulated gel placed on the teeth. The procedure is painless and takes about an hour. You'll leave with whiter, brighter teeth.
  • A customised solution if you prefer Home Bleaching.

Before After

If you have teeth that are chipped, crooked, stained, discoloured, misshapen or you just have a few gaps, then veneers may be your answer.

Tooth Discolouration

Teeth discolouration means many things, including yellowing and staining of teeth. This can happen for many reasons including:

  • Continual exposure to substances such as coffee, tea, wine and cigarette smoke.
  • Significant consumption of Cola or dark soft-drinks.
  • General ageing.

Other factors that can affect the colour of your teeth include genetic aspects as some people have naturally brighter enamel than others. Disease can also affect tooth colour while a wide range of medications can also cause discolouration of your teeth.

Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal treatment or Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with treating the dental pulp, or the soft tissue that runs through the canal or canals in the middle of the root or roots of teeth. Consisting of mainly nerves and blood vessels, the function of the pulp is to provide nutrition for a developing tooth and sensory feedback for an erupted tooth.

Root Canal treatment is typically performed to save a tooth that has been badly damaged due to decay, disease or trauma. Most people prefer to save teeth because a natural tooth will generally function better than an artificial tooth or having no tooth at all.

Periodontal Disease

Gum disease is an often overlooked aspect of dental health, even though it is the most common cause of tooth loss and directly affects systemic health. Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease and is caused by inadequate brushing and flossing of your teeth, which then leads to plaque build up. The bacteria that live in plaque are a major irritation to the gums and cause oral infection which can sometimes progress to a more destructive form of gum disease called Periodontitis.

Image 1 Image 2

Periodontitis not only affects the superficial gums, but can cause the bone that supports the teeth to recede or dissolve away, leading to tooth loss. People with gum disease usually have very little oral discomfort, therefore, it is of prime importance to have an effective hygiene regimen including home-maintenance and regular, professional cleans.

If you have any of the following conditions, you could be suffering from a form of gum disease.

  • Swollen, sore gums which are red in colour
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing
  • Gums that have separated from the teeth
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are drifting apart
  • Chronic bad breath.

Contact W dental to organise a personal appointment or general checkup with a caring and professional dentist to examine your teeth and provide the best treatment for you.

Wisdom Teeth

Also known as third molars, these teeth generally don't push through the gums till the late teens or early twenties. Often there is not enough space for these teeth to grow and they become impacted. These teeth may sometimes cause problems when they push through in later life.

Over time impacted wisdom teeth can cause problems including:

  • Damage to the teeth in front of them
  • Gum infections
  • Bone infections
  • Cysts
  • Headaches
  • Ear aches
  • Other facial pain.

Dislodged or Knocked Out Teeth

If you've had a tooth knocked out or dislodged, then Contact W dental immediately to organise a personal appointment to determine what's best for you.

A knocked out permanent adult tooth (also called an avulsed tooth) is a dental emergency. Baby teeth do not need to be put back in but quick steps in putting a permanent tooth back in its socket is the key to preserving the original tooth. Remember, that a tooth has the best chance of survival if replaced within 30 minutes.

What to do if a tooth is knocked out:
  1. Find the knocked out permanent tooth. If you are not sure whether it is a baby tooth or permanent tooth the difference is that a baby tooth is generally smoother and whiter.
  2. Handle the tooth by its crown (top part) never by the root.
  3. Gently rinse (not scrub) with saline solution or milk. DO NOT use TAP WATER as it contains chlorine which may damage the root.
    • Keep the tooth from drying by placing it back in the socket of the child's mouth and getting them to hold it in place or
    • storing the tooth in milk
  4. See a dentist or emergency room straight away.

During contact sports a mouth guard should be considered to help reduce trauma to teeth.

Caring for Nervous Patients

W dental understand that most people don't particularly enjoy a trip to the dentist. The professional team are focused on making your visit a comfortable and painless experience. W dental are equipped with the latest in technology and are able to utilise various methods to ensure your comfort and satisfaction with every visit.

Contact W dental today to discuss how they can make your visit a more comfortable experience. Please let them know if you are uncomfortable or nervous about visiting the dentist.


Wand

The Wand is a revolutionary new computer controlled local anaesthesia injection system that can provide a more comfortable and effective anaesthetic delivery. The Wand allows for a more predictably comfortable injection, especially in the more sensitive areas such as the palate or front of the mouth.

Wand

Remember, it's not the needle that causes the main discomfort of an injection, it's the pressure and volume of the fluid going into the tissues. The microprocessor inside The Wand automatically compensates for different tissue densities. The anaesthetic is delivered at a constant pressure and volume that's typically below the threshold of pain. The Wand delivers the anaesthetic at an optimal flow rate for a comfortable injection every time.

IV Sedation

In some cases, it is possible to have your dental work done under a semi-conscious sedation which is administered by a highly experienced, caring and qualified anaesthetist. You'll be put into a semi-sleep state during your procedure so that you can remain completely relaxed and comfortable for the time of your visit.

Back to top

Relative Analgesia (Happy Gas)

The administration of Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) can often be used to help patients during some of the more general procedures such as scaling and cleaning to provide a more comfortable experience without the need for a local anaesthetic. Just ask your dentist about the use of Happy Gas when you come in for your next visit.
