Restorative Dentistry Services for a Healthier Smile
The goal of restorative dentistry is to preserve damaged or diseased teeth for as long as they can be a functional part of your smile. Restoring the natural smile is important for preventing future oral health issues and to ease day-to-day activities like eating properly and speaking clearly.
There are different options for aesthetic restorative dental procedures. TEETH @ Tiong Bahru Dental Clinic works with all of our patients to understand their needs and priorities, and formulates a plan of treatment that is completely customised to restore a healthy, beautiful smile for you. We provide a variety of options to restore your teeth to pristine order and function as alternatives to tooth extractions.
Direct tooth restorative dental care is a fast and effective way to replace a damaged or a missing part of your teeth. Your dentist will place a filling in your prepared cavity immediately after the initial treatment procedure, such as after a root canal treatment. Direct restorative dental procedures typically only require one visit to our dental clinic to complete.
Indirect tooth restoration is a procedure that involves laboratory-made tooth replacements. This dental option typically requires more than one visit. The natural-coloured tooth is fabricated from safe, metal-free sculpted porcelain to create high-quality:
• Dental crowns that are designed to completely cover your tooth.
• Tooth supported bridges where implant surgery is not possible or undesirable.
• Inlays that act as stronger, more durable versions of fillings, especially when restoring particularly large cavities.
• Onlays to protect the occlusal surface of a tooth in situations where a full crown is not necessary.
• Removable dentures placed in a jaw where some teeth remain or fully replace all the teeth in an arch.
• Implant supported crowns, bridges and dentures
Restored teeth are made from strong-lasting materials that are hardened to create the smooth finish for a tooth. Restorative dentistry services in Singapore are typically painless and can benefit your oral health by keeping teeth straighter. However, it still requires healthy oral hygiene habits to prevent plaque build-up that leads to the onset of tooth decay and gum disease.
Beyond the oral health benefits, broken or missing teeth can have a negative impact on your self-confidence and make chewing foods more difficult. Restorative dentistry has helped many people who are concerned with personal aesthetics to restore brighter, more confident natural smiles.
If you’re concerned with the cost of dental restorations, you may be able to use your Singapore MediSave for surgical procedures such as certain implant treatments, surgical extraction of wisdom teeth, or the placement of dental implants.

Restorative Dentistry Services
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are a great solution for teeth that have been broken, or weakened by large fillings, or fractures; and, ridges are a method of replacing a missing tooth by using the adjacent teeth to provide the support.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are fabricated in the lab. Inlays act as stronger, more durable versions of fillings, especially when restoring particularly large cavities. Onlays are a way to protect the occlusal surface of a tooth in situations where a full crown is not necessary.
Removable dentures are a solution to replace missing teeth. They may be placed in a jaw where some teeth remain, or fully replace all the teeth in an arch. They are either an interim treatment in preparation for bridging or implants, or can be the final treatment itself.
Tooth Surface Loss / Bruxism
Tooth surface loss (TSL) can occur due to acid erosion of teeth, abrasion from hard substances – nuts, ice, or aggressive toothbrushing, and attrition-the wear caused by parafunctional tooth contact.
