Restorative Dentisty involves restoring teeth to normal function and aesthetics following damage or loss through decay, trauma or disease. Restorations can be direct - where the restoration is applied directly to the tooth, often referred to as "fillings". Or indirect - where the restoration is made outside the mouth, for example crowns, overlays, veneers, bridges, implants or even removable dentures. Diamond Valley Dental Group has wide experience in all aspects of Restorative Dentistry.
Endodontic treatment (more commonly referred to as Root Canal Treatment) is required when the nerve within the tooth becomes non viable or infected. We at Diamond Valley Dental Group are competent and efficient at managing most endodontic needs.
Replacement options for teeth that have been lost include implants, dentures and bridges. Each of these options have a place as an alternative and Diamond Valley Dental Group can assess and advise on the best option for every individual case. Sometimes the best option is not to replace the lost tooth or teeth.
