Restorations are the answer when the whole tooth or parts of it have been extracted to stop further decay. The preparatory
process for a tooth filling is wholly dependent on the kind of restoration that needs to be done. We recommend that you brush and floss your teeth well before the procedure. A routine dental clean-up needs to be scheduled to check for cavities which need to be filled. If you have been informed that you need dentures, the dentists will measure the mouth to create models of your jaw.

Restorative dentistry is often referred to as prosthodontic dentistry. Whether your dental professional uses the term “restorative dentistry” or “prosthodontic dentistry,” the goal is to At Dr. Paul, our primary goal is to preserve your natural teeth as much as possible. Our dentists assess your tooth condition before deciding on the tooth filling strategy to adopt.
The options we offer are:
Amalgam fillings: Used to restore decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth, Amalgam fillings are not as expensive as composite fillings but are just as strong and durable with bacteriostatic properties.
Glass ionomer fillings: Made with silicate glass powder and polyalkenoic acid (an ionomer), they are used as fillings for the front teeth, roots, and the neck of teeth.
Crowns: These tooth-shaped caps are placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, appearance, to keep a bridge in its place, or to cover a dental implant.
Inlays & Onlays: Made out of porcelain, onlays, and inlays preserve the teeth’ structure and are durable and resilient. Inlays and onlays are utilised when the old tooth fillings have to be removed or replaced. They can also be used in the case of minor cracks or fractures to the teeth.
I am very very pleased with our treatment here. Loving the care and the professionalism. I was a bit nervous but Dr. Marina put me at ease and she’s done a fantastic job so far. I need few more appointments to sort out my issues but I’m confident she’ll correct them. The Assistant, Mr. Laurence was very nice as well. My 8-year-old son was so content and happy to have his fillings done and there was no drama whatsoever. Family-friendly. Clean. Professional. Highly recommend it.
When your doctor cares about you and treats you as if you’re family, you know that you are getting the best treatment possible. Dr. Marina has treated my first cavity from when I was 5 till the last cavity I have had at the age of 21. The reason why I still go to her is the immense understanding and patience she has for her clients. I have an issue where I cannot open my mouth for long periods of time. Dr. Marina always notices when my mouth is in pain and manages to finish the treatment on time while ensuring I’m the most comfortable that I can be. Another thing I love is how she always explains what she’s doing, during and even after the treatment process. Being aware of what’s going on in my mouth gives me a sense of control. I personally love listening to the dental science behind what she’s doing, it makes me feel like I’m on Grey’s Anatomy.
As a little girl, I used to believe that going to the dentist with scary machines was the most frightening thing in the world – that was until I met Dr. Marina Goveas at Dr. Paul's Dental Clinic! From my very first appointment at 9 years old, Dr. Marina and her assistant Lawrence cared for me and my teeth with the utmost professionalism and care. She gave me the best advice on how to have healthy teeth and gums and made sure I was happy with the result. I have received the best treatment as they understand your discomfort and make sure you and your family are comfortable with the procedures. Even now, almost 10 years later, Dr. Marina ensures that I leave her welcoming office with a big, healthy smile on my face.

Your dentures need as much attention as your natural teeth. You will need to care for them just as you care for your natural teeth by brushing them on a daily basis. Rinse your denture thoroughly after you remove them, follow it up by brushing them with a soft toothbrush to clean them. You also need to practice good oral hygiene habits by brushing your teeth both in the morning and before you go to bed. Do not miss your dental regular clean-up appointments. Most importantly, it’s not just your teeth that need looking after but your gums, tongue and cheek, and the roof of your mouth as well.
The recovery time for dental restorative processes generally very quick. You might experience slight sensitivity for the first 24 hours after the procedire. You should consume only soft food during this time. It might take some time to adjust to your new dentures.
Restorative procedures do not have too many risks or complications associated with it. You are likely to experience sensitivity and a general sense of discomfort after the resotroration procedure. The chances of allergic reactions to the metal crowns or an infection is extremely rare. Howverm, dental crowns can get chipped or loosened and temporary crowns can even fall off. Permanent crowns will not dislodge once it has been installed. If you have deep cavities, do not run the risk of root canal treatment or even tooth extractions. Get your appointment fixed today to get your cavities filled at the earliest possible.
Tooth fillings help in improving your speech impediment and also restore your chewing abilities. They will also give you a new and improved smile and help you keep teeth in good condition.
Following a dental restoration, we suggest that you eat only cold and soft foods. If you think that you can tolerate heat, you can try haing some warm soup. We recommend that you continue brushing and flossing your teeth daily. While flossing your teeth, please ensure that you pull the floss only in one direction so as not to dislodge the temporary restoration.
