Tooth cavities permanently damage the hard surface of enamel on your teeth. Tiny holes begin to form in the tooth surface.
You may not even be aware you have cavities. Initially, they’re so small that they cause no tooth problems or pain. But as the holes increase in size, you start feeling minor inconveniences that lead to severe tooth problems, such as:
- Sudden toothache
- Sensitivity to cold or hot drinks
- Chewing problems
- Severe pain while eating sweet things.
- Visible holes or pits in your teeth
- Brown, black or white staining on the tooth surface
- Pain while biting
Fillings need to be long-lasting with proper oral hygiene to ensure their maintenance. If new decay occurs, it can weaken existing fillings requiring them to be replaced. If you have lost your filings, then it’s time to reach out to us.

Chipped, Broken or Fractured Teeth
If you have chipped off just a small piece of your tooth, our expert dentists may be able to repair the damage with a filling. Chipped, broken, fractured teeth can be literally painful and if left untreated can be unbearable. If you are suffering from a chipped front tooth, it is much more noticeable than a small chip to a back tooth. It may be not easy to notice and could go overlooked for some time. If this happens, the damage could occur in the gums, tongue, lips, or cheeks.
At Your Gorgeous Smile, our dentists are highly skilled and trained in recognizing even small cracks or chips in your teeth so they can be corrected as soon as possible and further damage to your oral health could be prevented.
Impacted or Infected Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the latest of teeth to grow. Most people develop them in their late teens or early twenties. Located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars, they are also known as third molars. When properly aligned and healthy, they are valuable to mouth functioning. However, they need to be removed in case of misalignment. In some cases, a wisdom teeth can be impacted due to their enclosure within the soft tissue and the jawbone. Even their partial eruption can lead to an opening for bacteria resulting in unbearable pain or infection.
If you need help with wisdom teeth, let us know we are here to help you with our emergency dental services in Melbourne.
There are several reasons why it might be necessary to have one or more teeth extracted. Teeth can become severely damaged due to injury or disease and may not be salvageable, or they might need removing due to lack of room in your jaw. Whenever possible, to save your tooth through conservative treatment options, we do everything in our power. However, in some cases, it’s not possible to save it. Then we do tooth extraction, which is performed in the most gentle way possible. Our skilled oral surgeons in Melbourne and the surrounding areas can extract a tooth gently and with precision.
Sensitivity or Pain
If you have sensitive teeth, some of your enamel may have worn away. Tooth sensitivity means discomfort or a feeling of toothache in one or several teeth. Due to this condition, you may experience sharp, sudden and shooting pain. It is one of the most common causes of a toothache.
Nobody has to live with sensitivity pain. If you are experiencing symptoms of tooth sensitivity, visit our dental clinic in Melbourne immediately for a proper assessment.
Root Canal Therapy
The most critical purpose of root canal therapy is to save the tooth from dying. Extracting a tooth, without replacing it with a dental implant, can affect jawbone density and the health of surrounding teeth, so it is typically best to try and save the tooth if at all possible. If you have more questions about root canal treatment and restoration, we invite you to contact our practice to schedule an appointment with one of our prosthodontists.
