fillings, crowns and onlays

From chewing through three meals a day to forming our beautiful smiles, our pearly whites are constantly at work. Over time, these hard workers can start to suffer from wear and tear. Restorative dentistry includes the use of fillings, crowns and onlays to bring your teeth back to full function and minimise future damage.

Restorations and Dental Crowns

What does this treatment include?

  • Fillings ‘fill up’ any cavities or holes in your teeth and prevent further decay in that spot
  • Crowns act as a ‘crash helmet’ and are placed over teeth that have become significantly weakened
  • Onlays fit over your tooth’s biting surface 
  • At Carlton Dental Care we develop a fully customised plan for you, including X-rays, custom made restorations to fit your teeth, and tips for ongoing care at home

When do I need this?

If you have tooth decay, chipped teeth, worn teeth from grinding or sensitivity due to overbrushing, you may require fillings. Crowns and onlays are recommended if you have a tooth that has become heavily weakened or undergone root canal treatment. 

What are the benefits?

Stop decay in its tracks. Unfortunately tooth decay does not heal by itself

For fillings, we generally use composite fillings which are matched to your natural tooth colour

Crowns and onlays can improve the appearance of discoloured or misshapen teeth

Stronger teeth. Our crowns and onlays are usually made from gold or ceramic, and shield weakened teeth from fractures or further damage

Preserve Your Teeth with Our Restoration Services

At Carlton Dental Care, we are dedicated to restoring the health, function, and appearance of your teeth with our comprehensive dental restoration and crown services. Whether you need to repair a damaged tooth, restore a decayed area, or enhance the aesthetics of your smile, our experienced team offers a range of solutions, including fillings, crowns, and onlays, tailored to meet your specific needs.

Dental fillings are a common and effective treatment for cavities and minor tooth damage. We use high-quality, tooth-colored composite materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, ensuring a durable and aesthetically pleasing result. Our meticulous approach ensures that the filling restores the tooth's function and prevents further decay.

For more extensive damage or decay, dental crowns are an ideal solution. Crowns, also known as caps, cover the entire surface of a damaged tooth, providing strength and protection while restoring its natural shape and appearance. At Carlton Dental Care, we use advanced materials such as porcelain and ceramic to create crowns that look and feel like your natural teeth. Our precise fitting process ensures a comfortable and secure fit, allowing you to eat and speak with confidence.

Onlays, also known as partial crowns, are used to repair larger areas of damage that cannot be adequately treated with a filling but do not require a full crown. Onlays cover the damaged portion of the tooth, preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible while providing strength and stability.
Our team at Carlton Dental Care is committed to providing high-quality dental restorations that enhance your oral health and smile. With our advanced techniques and materials, we ensure long-lasting and natural-looking results.
