  • Filling Restorations
  • Filling Restorations

  • White, or tooth-colored, fillings have been a preferred method of filling teeth for decades. These fillings are an excellent option for filling a small cavity, replacing a small old mercury or composite filling, and repairing an otherwise healthy broken tooth. We provide such fillings here at Pienaar Health Dental.

    The colour of these fillings can be matched closely to the natural colour of your teeth, ensuring they are highly discreet. Just like your natural teeth, white fillings can stain over time, so your dentist will give you appropriate aftercare advice.

  • Root Canal Treatment
  • Root Canal Treatment

  • This dental procedure is carried out when the innermost part of the tooth ‘the pulp’ becomes badly decayed or infected. If left untreated, the tooth will begin to die which could lead to the loss of the tooth.

    To save the tooth, the infected pulp needs to be removed to prevent the formation of a painful abscess. In dental terms this procedure is called ‘Endodontics’. After a root canal is successfully done, often a porcelain crown should be considered, as this will help prevent the tooth from fracturing.

    Your dentist will recommend if this is the best course of action you need to take to keep your tooth!

  • Dental Care At Pienaar Health Dental Surgeons In Motueka Nelson NZ

    The best way to maintain good oral hygiene is to brush and floss your teeth and to visit your dentist for regularly. Your dentist not only examines your teeth for signs of decay or damage, they also look for early signs of gum disease and oral cancer.

    It is normally recommended that you visit your dentist twice a year, although some people may need to visit the dentist more or less often.

    Medications and pregnancy often impacts the treatment you can have, so a confidential patient questionnaire is updated every 2 years or let your dentist know so we can tailor your treatment to your needs.

    To schedule your next appointment with your dentist, call to check their availability.
