Decayed Teeth

Prevent rotten and bad teeth from dying.

Is Tooth Decay Affecting Your Smile?

Tooth decay (sometimes also known as carie) is a common dental problem that requires treatment. If your teeth look unsightly and dark, it may be due to caries and breakdown of the tooth due to advanced dental decay, causing the teeth to discolour. We can help you restore your teeth to health and re-enhance your smile with several cosmetic procedures combined with general treatments to restore the health, aesthetics and vitality of the smile.

What is a decayed tooth?

  • A decayed tooth is when a tooth has become infected with bacteria.
  • If the decay is caused by an infection, which is not treated, it can lead to extensive damage sometimes involving painful abscesses and tooth removal.
  • The hole created in a tooth as a result of tooth decay is known as a “cavity”, which needs to be restored before the tooth begins to fall apart.
  • A variety of dental materials including porcelain or tooth-coloured filled resins can be used to restore the tooth back to its entirety. Crowns are recommended when there is little tooth structure remaining.
  • Any solution recommended will be based on creating a healthy foundation for your teeth, gums, and smile.

Treating Tooth Decay

  • Prevents further deterioration of the tooth.
  • Protects the tooth from fracturing.
  • Prevents extending infection.
  • Prevents pain and inability to eat properly.
  • Prevents need for complex dentistry such as root canal treatment.
  • Prevents abscesses.
  • Prevents loss of tooth and consequently all the other problems associated with loss of teeth.

Recommended treatments like fillings, crowns and root canals are very simple, pain-free and completed in a single appointment.

However, additional appointments may become necessary if any additional work needs to be done alongside the removal of the decay. This may involve restoring the tooth with ceramic work, or combining cosmetic procedures to restore the tooth’s aesthetics.

“I have always hated my smile and after watching a presentation from Rahul and the Perfect Smile team at an event it sounded so simple that I decided to do something about it. The first consultation with Louise (who is lovely) was easy and I was given all the information and detail I needed to make a decision.”
