Fillings and Crowns

Our beautiful restorations are works of art made with love to stand the test of time.

Fillings and Crowns

Our busy lifestyles can lead to tooth decay and even healthy diets can lead to damage on the teeth, such as surface wear, chipping and tooth fractures. Restoring the damage early is important, as well as preventing more damage down the track. Early intervention with a filling or crown can save you tooth structure and money!

Did you know that we can actually heal or stop early decay from progressing further with specific methods? However, if tooth decay has resulted in a cavity, or a tooth has been damaged for another reason, it is important to restore the tooth quickly. Deferring treatment comes with negative consequences: The damage often progresses to the point of the tooth needing either more extensive treatment or even extraction.

So, if your tooth is damaged, our dentists will likely recommend fillings or crowns to restore your tooth to full function and aesthetics.

Fillings are can be made of different materials and they all fill in defects in your teeth and are best suited for small to medium sized defects. They are matched in colour to your existing teeth, making them blend in perfectly. We shape and polish them up to a high gloss finish, so that both your tongue and your eyes will have trouble spotting the filling.

Our patients describe the process as pain-free and comfortable and love how great the tooth looks and feels afterwards. You can listen to your favourite music, listen to our dentist explain each step, or simply watch a video during the procedure.

Fillings are needed in the following situations:

  • Tooth decay

  • Small to medium size defects

  • Chipped and fractured teeth

  • Larger defects underneath a crown

  • Changing the shape or colour of a tooth


Crowns, or sometimes referred to as "caps", can consist of different materials and different extents of covering a tooth. A crown is a typically ceramic type of cap cemented permanently onto a damaged tooth, which has been shaped to look exactly like a tooth, matched to your other teeth in size, shape, colour and texture. The main difference to a filling is that a crown is used to restore larger defects or cracked teeth that are at risk of splitting. Sometimes a filling is needed underneath the crown, if the damage to the tooth had been extensive or close to the nerve.

Crowns are needed in the following situations:

  • After extensive damage of a tooth

  • As part of a fixed bridge to replace a missing tooth

  • To protect a cracked tooth

  • To protect a root canal treated tooth

  • To disguise a misshaped or discoloured tooth

  • As part of a full mouth rehabilitation program
