Restorative Dentistry Robina, Gold Coast
During our oral examinations, our experienced and professional Robina dentists are looking out for any issues that may have arisen since your last check-up.
We develop treatment plans to ensure your teeth are strong, healthy and look the way you want them to look. Our restorative dental work includes a range of treatments including:
A filling is a type of dental restoration that is used to restore a tooth that has been affected by decay. During the procedure, your dentist will carefully remove any bacteria and decay from your damaged tooth and thoroughly clean the affected area. Once the tooth has been cleaned, the cavity can then be filled with a filling material, preventing any bacteria from entering the area.
Fillings can be made from a number of materials, including porcelain, composite resin and amalgam. Composite resin fillings are a popular choice as they can be matched to the colour of the teeth and achieve a very natural appearance.

Veneers and Crowns
Veneers and crowns may be recommended to resolve a wide range of issues during restorative dentistry. Veneers are typically made from porcelain and are designed to fit over the surface of the teeth to conceal imperfections, such as chips, cracks, discolouration and mild misalignment issues.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over the teeth in order to restore both function and appearance. A crown may be recommended for the restoration of a broken or worn down tooth; to hold a dental bridge in a secure position; to support a tooth with a particularly large filling, or to protect a weak tooth from cracking or breaking. Dental crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes and can be very helpful in improving the aesthetic of one’s smile.
Dental bridges are used to close the gaps caused by one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is generally made up of two or more crowns, which are supported either by dental implants or by remaining natural teeth.
There are a number of benefits to choosing a dental bridge if you are missing one or more teeth. They can be very helpful in restoring the appearance of a smile, as well as proper chewing and speaking ability. In the case of missing teeth, dental bridges can also prevent any remaining teeth from shifting out of their correct position.
Full and partial dentures
In Restorative Dentistry, Dentures are used as replacements for missing teeth. They are removable, and can be taken out of the mouth for regular cleaning. At Malo Dental, we offer both full and partial dentures. When you come in for a consultation, your dentist will advise you on the type of denture that best suits your particular needs.
Dentures are customised to fit your mouth comfortably. In the case of full dentures, the upper denture covers the roof of the mouth, while the lower denture is designed to fit around the tongue. Partial dentures, on the other hand, are attached to a special metal framework that attaches to the remaining natural teeth.
Dental implants are specifically designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Once the process is complete, you will have the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence.
Our dental implants are specifically designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. A dental Implant is a titanium “root” that integrates directly with the surrounding bone and replaces the function of the natural tooth. Our Implants are made using the best quality medical grade titanium with proven biocompatibility with treated surface to facilitate bone integration.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
With modern restorative dentistry surgical techniques and improved dental implant designs, patients can receive fixed full bridges with the All-on-4™ treatment at the Malo Dental Gold Coast in as little as two days.
The technique can be applied to either the upper or lower jaw, dependent upon bone volume and density. All-on-4 can be suitable for denture wearers who have lost their teeth sometime in the past.
Four implants are inserted into the jaw to serve as the foundation for the teeth. Sets of teeth will then be added into the implants which will look and act like natural teeth.
Can my broken tooth be saved?
In most small cases, a broken tooth can be saved, however it may need to be removed and a dental implant placed.
How to treat a cracked tooth?
Cracked teeth are treated by either a filling, root canal treatment or a dental crown being placed over the tooth.
What to do if a tooth is knocked out?
It’s important to wash the tooth with sterile saline or water immediately. You can try attempting to gently place the tooth back in, however you must ring the dentist and organise an emergency appointment as soon as possible.
