Tooth Fillings West Auckland

Dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used artificially to restore the function, integrity and morphology of the missing dental structure. Usually, the structural damage occurs from caries or external trauma. Dental restorations can be manufactured from a number of materials:

Dental Amalgam

Dental Amalgam is a dental filling widely used and has been used for over 150 years. In contrast to other restorative products, amalgam has many benefits, such as low cost, strength , durability, and bacteriostatic impact.

For a variety of purposes, amalgam is used in dentistry. During placement, it is relatively simple to use and manipulate; it stays soft for a short time so that it can be packed to fill any irregular volume, and then forms a hard compound. Amalgam has greater durability than other direct restorative materials, such as composites, for example. Most amalgam restorations operate for 10 to 12 years on average, while composites based on resin operate for around half that time. However, it should be noted that this gap is decreasing with recent advances in composite material science and a greater understanding of the technique-sensitivity of placement.

There are conditions in which composite (white fillings) works better than amalgam; composite is the preferred restorative material when amalgam is not suggested, or when a more conservative preparation would be beneficial. Such circumstances would involve minor occlusal restorations, in which amalgam would require the removal of a more sound tooth structure, as well as "enamel locations above the contour height."

The Council on Scientific Affairs of the American Dental Association has concluded that both amalgam and composite materials are considered healthy and effective for tooth restoration.

Dental Composites

White fillings, too, are considered dental composites. Crowns and in-lays can be made from dental composites in the laboratory as well. These products are similar and are tooth-colored to those used in direct fillings. They are more vulnerable to wear and discoloration and their strength and longevity are not as strong as porcelain or metal restorations.

Around their faces, many individuals also have silver / mercury fillings from years past. Such fillings are not especially appealing to the eye, and we understand that silver / mercury fillings eventually result in a weaker tooth structure by unavoidable nature. Inlays of porcelain and tooth-colored restorations (onlays) provide not only beautiful (or unnoticeable) fillings, but also add strength to damaged teeth. Thanks to new bonding technologies, these restorations are aesthetically pleasing and very solid.

Replacing a tooth-colored restoration with silver fillings

With tooth-colored restorations (onlays), you can get your silver fillings removed. There are two appointments needed for this process.

Your original appointment

The old filling and any further decay are eliminated.

An impression of your teeth is made. A model is made of your teeth and sent to the lab. A temporary onlay on the tooth is inserted. At the Laboratory a resin is carefully poured into the teeth model. It is then designed to look like the real tooth you are using.

Your 2nd appointment

It eliminates the temporary onlay. In order to prepare it for the fresh onlay, a conditioning gel is put on your tooth. Bonding cement is placed on the tooth and the resin is bound to the tooth by a high-intensity light.

The tooth is polished afterwards.

Your teeth are returned to a natural look and sound, smoother and preserved by the tooth!

Tooth Removal West Auckland

We can decide if you need to remove a tooth for any number of reasons. Some teeth are removed because they are badly decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or broken in a way that can not be remedied. Other teeth can need to be removed because they are incorrectly placed in the mouth (such as affected teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic care.

Removing a single tooth can lead to issues related to your chewing capacity, jaw joint problems, and teeth shifting, which can have a significant effect on your dental health.

In order to prevent these complications, in most situations, our physicians will explore alternatives to extraction as well as the replacement of the extracted tooth.

Method of tooth extraction

At the time of extraction, the doctor will need to numb the teeth, jawbone and gums that cover the area with a local anaesthetic. You'll feel a lot of pressure during the extraction process. This is due to the method of rocking the tooth tightly in order to widen the socket for removal. You feel the pressure without pain as the anaesthetic has numbed the nerves that avoid the transference of pain, but the nerves that convey the pressure are not deeply affected.

If you experience discomfort at any time during extraction, please let us know right away.

Separating a tooth

Some teeth ought to be removed. This is a very common practise when a tooth is too deeply anchored in its socket or the root is bent that the socket can not extend sufficiently to extract it. The doctor actually splits the tooth into pieces, and then extracts each section one at a time.

Ok, after Treatment

There could be some bleeding. Placing a piece of moist gauze over an empty tooth socket and chewing it tightly for 45 minutes will control this.

Blood clots forming in an empty socket.

This is a vital part of the healing process, and you need to be careful not to dislodge a clot.

Do not rinse or spit for 24 hours after extraction.

Avoid the use of straw, smoke or hot liquids.

Swelling up

If there is swelling, you should put ice on your face for 10 minutes and leave for 20 minutes. Repeat this cycle as you like you need for up to 24 hours.

Pressure and Medicine

If you feel pain, you can use non-prescription pain relief drugs such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.

Eating a meal

For most extractions, just make sure you chew away from the extraction site. Keep away from hot beverages and alcoholic drinks for 24 hours.

Liquid diets can be prescribed for 24 hours.

Cleaning and Brushing

After extraction, stop brushing your teeth near the extraction site for one day. You should resume gentle cleaning after that. Stop commercial mouth flushing, as it appears to irritate the site.

Starting 24 hours after extraction, you can rinse with salt water (1/2 teaspoon in a cup of water) after meals and before bedtime.

Dry sockets

Dry socket is where the blood clot is not formed in the socket where the tooth has been removed or the clot has been dislodged and the healing is greatly delayed.

Following the instructions for post extraction, the chances of forming a dry socket would be minimised. Dry sockets turn out to be a dull throbbing pain, which does not show until three to four days after extraction. The pain may be mild to extreme and may radiate from the extraction area. Dry sockets can cause a bad taste or a bad breath, and the extraction site appears dry.

Your doctor will add a medicated dressing to a dry socket to soothe your discomfort.

After the tooth has been removed, there would be a hole in the jawbone where the tooth has been. In time, it's going to smooth and fill up with bone. This phase can take weeks or months to complete. However, you should not encounter any discomfort after 1-2 weeks.

The Tooth Can Be Replaced With:

  • Dental Implant
  • Bridges

Teeth Whitening West Auckland

It can be much simpler than you thought to get a beautiful smile with teeth whitening in West Auckland. A lot of people get the look they've been dreaming about with our quick "bleaching" technique.

It's clean, easy, and cheap. Only let us know if you would like to start bleaching at any appointment. You can either lighten the upper teeth or both the upper and lower teeth, depending on how much each of them reveals when you speak and smile.

Teeth-Whitening-West-Auckland

You'll be able to pick up your personalised bleach splints in just a day or two. We're supplying you with a special bleaching agent that you put in the transparent, almost invisible splints. With just a few hours of wear per day, our unique bleaching agent bursts out of the enamel in a very short time without altering the tooth structure or current dental work in any way. When your teeth hit the brightness you like, you just need occasional care to keep your new smile alive. We're going to take "after" pictures at your next appointment.

Dental whitening can be used to correct certain tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, ageing, or chemical damage to the teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can give a healthy way to build a stunning, "brilliant" smile. In cases of severe tooth decolouration, crowns or veneers may be the only option. But due to the low cost of bleaching procedures, bleaching is almost always worth a decent try.

Main Advantage of Tooth Whitening

Fixes dark, yellow and mottled tooth staining

Works for people of all ages.

Is a near-permanent cure for a "dull" face, restoring light and adding a face to life.

How is this done?

The impression is made of a proprietary "mouthguard" or "stent" to hold the bleach against the teeth. The substance is used every night for around 3-4 hours in a week or two, during which major whitening occurs. In certain situations, the shift is nothing but fantastic. For confidence in appearance, whitening technology provides improvements in yellowing, fading or staining of teeth. Crowns or veneers may be more suitable for very badly stained teeth.

Things To Consider:

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are used in hospitals and pharmacies. However, because these products can damage the gums and teeth, it is best to use the products recommended by our West Auckland Dentist practise.
