Restorative Dentistry

Successful dental restoration starts with a correct diagnosis of the patient’s existing oral problems, and an analysis of the patient’s health, needs, and desires. Restorative dentistry repairs teeth that have become damaged by decay and abrasions. The treatment of such teeth will restore their appearance and function.

Fissure sealants are a preventive treatment. For example, molars have deep fissures on their biting surfaces where the decay easily develops. Fissure sealants will prevent decay from developing on newly erupted teeth.

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth. In the past, it was common practice to use amalgams containing mercury. The disadvantage to using mercury amalgam is the toxicity of the material and the non-aesthetic look of the filling. Nowadays, amalgams have been replaced by modern composite fillings.

At Lausanne Dental & Implant Clinic we use the most modern and advanced composite fillings, techniques, and materials to ensure the results are stable, predictable, and aesthetic. The highest precision is required for this technique.

Decay interproximal

Teeth have a hard enamel surface. Poor oral hygiene can lead to a build-up of plaque, which in turn can lead to decay. If decay is left untreated, the nerve of the tooth may become infected and die and an abscess may result.

Amalgam to Composite

Amalgam fillings in the lower jaw can often be seen when we talk or laugh, and they can sometimes also be seen in the upper jaw. These fillings can be unsightly and they may discolour the tooth. Composite (white-coloured) fillings are available to improve the aesthetic look of your teeth.
