Reconstructive Dentist at Bondi Beach, Sydney

“Are you teeth as good as ten years they were ten years ago?”

Restorative dentistry is carried out by a competent professional dentist who is able to diagnose, plan and ‘restore’ your teeth to their original look and functionality. 

Restorative work can often include more extensive reconstruction work, but more often, restorative dentistry includes ‘everyday’ dental restorations such as removing decays with tooth coloured fillings, removing stains on teeth, restoring chipped or fractured teeth and replacing lost tooth/teeth.

Good restorative work not only restores the functioning of your teeth, it also restores your youthful appearance.

Bondi Dental’s Principal Restorative Dentist

“I will offer my patients the same dental treatments as I will offer myself or my family”   Dr. Andrew Sih

At Bondi Dental, our Principal Dentist Dr. Andrew Sih is a recognized expert in the field of restorative dentistry.  He has more than 30 years of experience in restorative and reconstructive dentistry. He can offer in-depth testimonials from satisfied patients, as well as a portfolio of ‘before and after’ photographs from dental restorations he has performed.  He is renowned in the field of dentistry as a reliable, respectable and efficient professional, with a keen ability to listen and emphasize the needs of his patients.

At Bondi Dental, with Dr. Andrew Sih, our Principal Dentist and Dr. Terry Yuen, a leading dental surgeon and implant specialist from Adelaide, you are assured of the following:

  • Experience and Qualifications:  At Bondi Dental, our restorative dentists Dr. Andrew Sih and Dr. Terry Yuen together have combined 60 years of experience and with thousands of successful restorative dental treatments including dental implants, full and partial mouth reconstructions, tooth restorations, root canal work, crowns and bridges, and routine fillings and surgical extractions.
  • Professional skills: As restorative dentistry involves top clinical skills, both Dr. Andrew Sih and Dr. Terry Yuen set very high standards for themselves and are constantly upgrading and improving their skills; coupled with their extensive experience, they are always able to achieve the most satisfactory results for their patients

Good consultative approach:Getting restorative dental work can be stressful, and sometimes costly. You should expect your restorative dentist to be willing to sit down and talk with you about your condition and his recommendations.

Your restorative dentist should be able to advise you on various treatment options, based on your specific history and expectations, and more importantly, the affordability of the treatment plan proposed.

Every dental patient is different, and good restorative dentists do not use a “one size fits all” approach; depending on your personal oral health, your own requirements and financial standing, there might be complications and issues and special needs that require a certain course of treatment or slight modifications in the process.

A good restorative dentist will help you navigate these issues.

In the case of dental implants, at Bondi Dental, Dr. Andrew Sih, and Dr. Terry Yuen, will spend time examining, listening and discussing with you your concerns, needs and expectations. After careful considerations, they will then suggest the treatment option/options to you and the reasons for their suggestions.

  • Attention to details: As successful dental restorations involve careful considerations and attention to all aspects of each procedure, such as
  1. complete removal of decays in the tooth before filling,
  2. complete preparation of the root canal system, ensuring the canals are bacteria free and properly sealed,
  3. proper preparation and sealing of the margins of crowns and bridge work
  4. correct bite for all restoration work 
  5. proper position and correct placing of dental implants

Dr. Andrew Sih is a highly skilled professional.  When he does a restorative procedure, he pays particular attention to all of the above details to make sure that his restorative work is given the best chance to be successful.  He even give s a guarantee* to some of the restorative work performed.

    * 3 years for crowns.

  • Clear explanations: When you go in for restorative dental work, you should expect your dentist to carefully and thoroughly explain the changes that are going to take place as a result of your treatment. There should be no surprises!

At Bondi Dental, our restorative dentist Dr. Andrew Sih will discuss with you in detail about the process, patiently explain what is going to happen to ensure that you feel confident and calm about the process and happy with the results.

  • Good aesthetic sense: Although restorative dentistry is not regarded as  ‘cosmetic dentistry’, a good restorative dentist should also have good aesthetic sense as restorative dentistry sometimes may involves reshaping the style and appearance of a patient’s teeth.

Dr. Andrew Sih is a dentist who has a good understanding about the importance of the aesthetic requirements in his restorative work.  To Dr. Sih technical skills is essential, but the balance , shape, size, colour and hue of the restored teeth, which result in making a great smile is what he ultimately aims to achieve for the patient.

“I will offer my patient treatments the same way I will treat myself or my family”. –Dr. Sih

 Sensitive to patients needs: When dealing with restorative dentistry, a good restorative dentist not only just deals with the technical and aesthetics aspect of a patient’s teeth, he should also care for the emotional needs of his patients as well.

Dr. Andrew Sih understands the emotions and concerns of patients coming to him for restorative works.  He will carefully examine their oral conditions, and patiently discuss with his patients the reason for their concerns, needs and requirements, giving them professional advice on the best solution and approach to their problems, assuring them of the successful outcome. 

  • Accurate diagnosis: Poor diagnosis will lead to an incorrect treatment plan, resulting in further dental problems in the future. 

Accurate diagnosis is vital to treatment success.  A good restorative dentist should be able to correctly diagnose the cause of the dental problem and decide on the most effective course of treatment

Therefore it is very important that you should choose an experienced restorative dentist who can provide you with accurate diagnosis of your dental problems because it is not uncommon to hear people say that: “The work done in the past did not work” or “After so many treatments in the past, my teeth are worse than ten years ago”.

If that happens, maybe you want to ask yourself the following question:

If the answer is yes, you may want to start to question whether you had had the correct treatments.

  • Modern techniques. Not only should you seek a restorative dentist who has experience, but you should also make sure that your dentist is up to date on the latest techniques in restorative dentistry.

 At Bondi Dental, Dr. Andrew Sih works in a state-of-the-art restorative dental clinic that is without peer in Sydney or Australia, and he prides himself on keeping up with the latest developments in restorative dentistry.
