Dental Treatments for Repairing Teeth
Dental Procedures to Fix Tooth Decay or Cracked Teeth
Dental crowns are a popular option for restoring broken or severely decayed teeth. These custom-made caps cover the damaged tooth, providing strength, protection, and an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
At Amazing Smiles, our experienced dentists will carefully assess your teeth and recommend the most suitable type of crown, ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia, to ensure optimal functionality and natural-looking results.
Tooth-coloured fillings are an excellent choice for smaller areas of decay or minor tooth damage.
Dental fillings blend seamlessly with your natural tooth colour and are made from composite resin material, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing restoration.
Our skilled dentists will carefully remove the decayed portion of the tooth and apply the tooth-coloured filling, ensuring a strong and seamless result.
Composite bonding is a popular and versatile dental procedure that involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin material to repair or enhance the appearance of teeth. It effectively fixes minor chips, cracks, discolouration, gaps, and misshapen teeth. The composite resin is carefully moulded and shaped to match the natural contours of the teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.
At Amazing Smiles, our skilled dentists are experienced in composite bonding techniques and can help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing and confident smile.

Composite veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment option used to improve the appearance of teeth. They are thin shells made of tooth-coloured composite resin that is custom-designed to fit over the front surface of the teeth.
Composite veneers can address various aesthetic concerns such as discolouration, chips, cracks, or minor misalignments. The procedure involves carefully applying composite resin directly onto the tooth, which is then sculpted and bonded. The result is a natural-looking, enhanced smile.
Composite veneers are a more conservative and cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers, and they can be completed in just one visit to the dentist. Compound veneers can provide long-lasting and beautiful results with proper care, helping individuals achieve the desired smile.
Dental veneers, also known as Porcelain Veneers are a versatile option for addressing both cosmetic and functional concerns with your teeth. These thin shells, typically made from porcelain or composite resin, are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance, shape, and alignment.
Whether you have chipped, stained, or slightly misaligned teeth, veneers can help you achieve a beautifully restored smile.
Dental inlays and onlays are restorative dental treatments used to repair damaged or decayed teeth. They are custom-made to fit precisely into the prepared cavity or on the biting surface of the tooth. Inlays are used when the damage or decay is confined to the center of the tooth, while onlays are used when the damage extends to one or more cusps or corners of the tooth.
These restorations are typically made from durable materials like porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin, which closely resemble the natural color and appearance of the tooth. The process involves removing the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth, taking an impression, and then fabricating the inlay or onlay in a dental laboratory.
Once ready, the inlay or onlay is bonded onto the tooth using dental cement, providing strength and protection to the remaining tooth structure. Dental inlays and onlays help to restore the tooth’s function, strength, and aesthetics while preserving as much of the natural tooth as possible. They are a conservative alternative to dental crowns and can provide long-lasting results with proper oral care. If you have damaged or decayed teeth, dental inlays and onlays may be an effective treatment option to restore your smile and improve oral health.
Dental implants offer a long-lasting and reliable solution for severely decayed, damaged or missing teeth. Implants consist of titanium posts surgically placed in the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. An implant might be recommended if the root of your natural tooth is severely damaged and required to be extracted. As a result, the titanium screw emulates the root of your tooth, which is then covered with a crown.
They provide a stable foundation for attaching dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Our skilled implant dentists will assess your case and develop a personalized treatment plan to restore your smile and enhance your oral health.

There are 32 teeth in the mouth of an adult, and each has a functional purpose.
We use our front teeth to cut food, whilst our back teeth are for chewing food.
Teeth start to crack or break down due to oral hygiene reasons or accidental impact.
There are numerous causes of a cracked tooth.
Patients that grind their teeth unknowingly during sleep suffer from a condition known as Bruxism. In doing so, patients are unaware of the damage they are causing to their teeth.
Some signs and symptoms of a patient grinding their teeth at night are sore jaws in the morning and extreme headaches.
This constant pressure on the teeth causes stress fractures, leading to cracked teeth, fallen fillings, and sensitive teeth. The range of treatment for Bruxism is occlusal night guards, Botox and complex rehabilitation of the teeth bite system.
Sometimes, teeth suffer from accidents, and the effects range from minor hairline fractures to major tooth/root fractures.
Teeth with excessive restoration work
Teeth with an old amalgam in place for over a decade have a high risk of fractures.
Unfortunately, under constant use, these amalgams weaken the enamel wall or dislodge themselves.
Extensive composite restorations can also be weak and break under constant hard pressure.
Crack tooth syndrome
When a patient experience pain in a tooth when eating, it can be due to a cracked tooth. At Amazing Smiles, the dentist can diagnose this complex pain with a few tests that they can utilize. One of these tests is a bite/crack finder test. The patient is made to bite on a plastic Crack finder. When a tooth has cracked, the patient will feel a sharp pain on the release of the bite.
This all varies on how much damage the tooth has sustained, how much tooth structure is present and whether the nerve is damaged. If the damage is only at the tooth level, often the dentist would suggest protecting the tooth with a crown. A crown is a hard outer shell made from porcelain, gold or zirconia.
If the crack has propagated deeper into the tooth and has caused more throbbing pain, it is best treated by taking out the nerve and doing root canal therapy.
We can also use a combination of composite resins and veneer ceramic materials to restore cracked teeth.
If you have a broken tooth, it’s important to take prompt action to prevent further damage and seek dental treatment. Here are the steps you can take:
- Rinse your mouth: Gently rinse your mouth with warm water to clean the area around the broken tooth.
- Save any broken pieces: If possible, locate and save any broken tooth pieces. Rinse them with water and keep them in a clean container.
- Control bleeding: If there is any bleeding, apply gentle pressure with a clean gauze or cloth to help stop it.
- Reduce swelling: If you experience swelling, apply a cold compress to the outside of your cheek or lips near the affected area.
- Manage pain: Over-the-counter pain relievers can help alleviate any discomfort or pain. Avoid applying pain-relieving gels or medications directly to the tooth or gums without professional advice.
- Protect the tooth: If the broken tooth has sharp edges, you can cover it with dental wax or sugarless gum to prevent it from causing irritation or injury to your mouth.
- Schedule a dental appointment: Contact your dentist as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. Explain the situation and any symptoms you are experiencing. They will guide the next steps.
It’s crucial not to delay seeking dental care for a broken tooth, as prompt treatment can help prevent complications and increase the chances of a successful repair. Your local dentist will assess the extent of the damage and recommend appropriate treatment options, such as dental bonding, a dental crown, or in severe cases, extraction followed by a replacement option like a dental implant or bridge. Every case is unique, so it’s best to consult a dental professional for personalized advice and treatment.
Yes, there is a difference between composite bonding and composite veneers.
Composite bonding involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin directly to the tooth surface. It is a conservative and less invasive procedure compared to veneers. Bonding is typically used to fix minor cosmetic issues such as chipped or discoloured teeth. The composite resin is applied, shaped, and then hardened using a special light, resulting in an improved appearance.
On the other hand, composite veneers are thin shells made of composite resin that are custom-made and bonded to the front surface of the teeth. Veneers often address more extensive cosmetic concerns, such as severely stained, misaligned, or worn teeth. The process involves removing a small amount of enamel from the tooth surface to accommodate the veneer, followed by bonding the veneer in place.
Both composite bonding and composite veneers can enhance the appearance of teeth and provide natural-looking results. The choice between the two will depend on the specific dental needs and desired outcome of each patient. Consulting with a dentist will help determine the most suitable treatment option for achieving the desired smile transformation.
A dental filling is a restorative procedure that involves removing a decayed or damaged tooth structure and filling the space with a suitable material, such as amalgam or composite resin. Fillings are typically used to restore the function and integrity of a tooth affected by cavities or minor damage.
On the other hand, composite bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses tooth-coloured composite resin material to enhance the appearance of a tooth. It involves applying the composite resin directly to the tooth’s surface and sculpting it to improve its shape, size, colour, or alignment. Composite bonding can be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps between teeth, or improve the overall aesthetics of a smile.
While dental fillings and composite bonding involve composite resin material, they serve different purposes. Dental fillings primarily focus on restoring tooth structure and function, whereas composite bonding aims to enhance teeth’ appearance. It’s important to consult a dentist to determine which treatment option suits your specific dental needs.
