Restorative treatments

Restorative treatments

At Emstrey Dental Practice in Shrewsbury our dentists are skilled and experienced in restorative dentistry. They can restore broken, worn or chipped teeth and replace missing teeth.

Whether you have been in an accident, suffered from problems such as gum disease or tooth grinding or if your mouth has just gradually fallen into disrepair we can offer a solution for you.

There are various options available when we talk about restorations, from basic solutions such as fillings through to veneers, crowns and bridges.

For the anterior (front) teeth white composite fillings are often used. Composite fillings are also available for the back teeth as we are aware that the silver amalgam fillings are not as aesthetically pleasing as composites, however, amalgam restorations are strong, durable and often can’t be spotted if they are towards the back of the mouth. White fillings can also be strong and are most definitely more discreet in comparison to the amalgam alternative.

If your teeth have been badly damaged or look unsightly veneers or crowns may be an excellent solution.

Veneers are very thin layers of tooth coloured material which are bonded to your teeth, giving an extremely realistic look and often making a huge difference to your appearance. 

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over an existing tooth. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling.

Bridges are discussed on the prosthetic treatments page as they replace teeth that are no longer present.
