Fillings & Crowns

Types of Fillings & Crowns

At Inline Smiles we use modern tooth coloured filling techniques that ensure a quality and long lasting restoration that is bonded to the tooth. Fillings are generally required if a tooth has dental decay or is chipped, worn or broken down. Our tooth coloured fillings create more pleasing, contoured and natural looking smiles – often patients can’t tell a filling has been placed at all!

During your filling procedure our team will ensure that you are made as comfortable as possible. Our surgeries are equipped with roof mounted televisions to keep you occupied while our dental team works away.

A crown can be best described as a cap for your tooth. At Inline Smiles, we may recommend a crown for your tooth if it is broken down, heavily filled, has had a prior root canal treatment or to change the shape or colour of the tooth. Dental crowns can be made of several materials including gold alloy or porcelain. Crowns mimic the natural shape and contour of your teeth ensuring an outcome that lasts many years.

At Inline Smiles, during your crown consultation appointment our dentists will determine if you are a suitable candidate and discuss the relevant material options available to you, such as porcelain or gold alloy, and the associated costs, advantages and disadvantages.
