What’s is it restorative dentistry?
Restorative dentistry is about restoring and preserving your existing teeth while replacing any terminal or missing ones. We want to give you the strongest, healthiest natural teeth possible while transforming aesthetics – so your new smile feels as good as it looks.
It is a highly customised process, with treatment unique to your needs and goals. With that in mind, your restoration treatment might include:
Non-invasive comprehensive cleaning
Bite analysis, optimisation & refinement
Digital smile design
Fillings & fissure sealants
Dental implants, bridges & crowns
Endodontics (root canals)
Periodontics (gum disease)
Dental Prosthodontics (dental implants, bridges and dentures)

A04 vs restoration- How do I know if my teeth are worth restoring?
If most of your teeth are terminal, it’s probably worth opting for all-on-4 dental implants (full teeth replacement). Not sure whether your teeth can be salvaged? A consultation at our West Perth practice will allow one of our experienced dental implant and cosmetic dentists to take a closer look.
What is a dental implant?
If you’re having restorative dentistry treatment, chances are you’ll need to replace one or more of your missing teeth with dental implants. Many people baulk at the idea of implants. But dental implants can be an effective, long-lasting and surprisingly comfortable solution.
It works like this: our specialist dentists replace the root of your tooth with a small piece of titanium – the implant. After the implant and the jawbone fuse together, we attach a carefully crafted crown that looks and functions like your real tooth.
While it usually takes 3 months to get your implant, we know the days can feel never-ending when you fixate on gaps in your smile in the mirror. That’s why we offer a unique service where we fit you with a temporary crown on your first visit – so you get the look of a new tooth right away!
How much does a dental implant cost?
Bargain buying can be great at the grocery store. But when it comes to your smile, it’s best to go for quality – giving you peace of mind, better oral health outcomes, and more confidence in your gorgeous smile.
We charge $6000-8000 per dental implant, which includes premium Nobel Biocare implants, deep and genuine before-and-after care, and our extensive specialist experience. All our services also include a financial wellness consultant to provide support and discuss your options – including self-funding, personal lending or accessing superannuation.
What foods can I eat after having a dental implant?
Your implants need some time to heal and settle right after surgery. For optimal recovery, it’s best to avoid hard foods with a crunch – things like apples, crusty French bread, or corn chips. Instead, opt for easy-to-chew foods like soft fruits, bone-based broths, eggs or mashed potatoes.
We can run through all this in more detail at your consultation.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are handcrafted shells made from superfine ceramic porcelain that we bond to your natural teeth. They fix flaws, give the look of a flawless smile while helping your teeth function better.
We use high-tech artistry to design your veneers digitally, giving endless choice and precision. Then we craft them by hand for all that delicate lifelike detail – so they look like your actual teeth (only better).
How much do porcelain veneers cost?
The investment per veneer at our clinic is $2.35K. This includes our high-tech digital design and comprehensive trial smile process, as well as a dedicated team of specialists.
Sound a little out of budget? All our services include a financial wellness consultant to help discuss your options – like personal lending or early access to superannuation.
Will coffee or red wine stain my veneers?
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, so they won’t stain as your natural tooth enamel does. There’s no need to continually whiten your teeth – just normal dental hygiene is all you need to keep your veneers gleaming.
Will my smile look natural with different restorative work?
Blending treatments might sound a little daunting. Will dental implants mixed with veneers mixed with your natural teeth create some kind of Frankenstein smile? Actually, far from it. We use high-tech artistry to create seriously natural-looking smiles. The latest digital technology allows us complete control and precision over the look and placement of your smile – making it a perfect fit for your unique teeth and facial features. Then we delicately craft your crowns and veneers by hand, giving intricate lifelike detail while ensuring they seamlessly blend together.
Does oral health affect overall wellness?
Why does oral health matter?
Your mouth is like the door to your digestive and respiratory tracts, where bacteria tries to pass through. Daily brushing and flossing keep the nasty visitors at bay. But if you’ve neglected your oral health in the past, you may be dealing with gum disease, bad breath, decay and infection.
Not only can this be painful and embarrassing, but it can also lead to diseases in the rest of the body, like endocarditis, cardiovascular disease or pneumonia.
We’re a totally no-judgement zone at Advanced Dental Artistry. We get that life happens, and sometimes oral health takes a backseat. But we also believe everyone deserves a fresh start with oral health to live their best life – which is what restorative dentistry is all about!
What other issues can restorative dentistry fix?
Restorative dentistry will certainly give you a gorgeous smile that you’ll be proud to flash. But it also helps treat the root of a range of other dentistry issues. Some include:
- Bad breath
- Tooth sensitivity
- Gum disease
- Overbites or underbites
What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Honestly, there are too many to count! Even we’re surprised at the benefits our restorative dentistry patients report. Having said that, here are some of the biggest wins you can count on:
We use the most high-tech materials and applications on the planet to give you highly durable crowns or veneers that can last for decades.
Unlike using braces or Invisalign, you’ll have straighter, brighter, more gorgeous teeth – right away!
By bringing your oral health to its maximum, you can enjoy a fresh start with dentistry – avoiding ongoing (savings-draining) patch-up jobs or costly procedures later.
It’s not just about teeth replacement. We restore and strengthen your existing teeth, helping you chew and drink with ease.
Little can transform your mood and confidence like a winning smile. Our patients are often shocked at how their new smile transforms their self-esteem, career or relationships.
Don’t stress about pain or dental anxiety (or that dreaded drilling noise). We offer several sedation options for you to feel completely comfortable and at ease.
