Be your most brilliant self with a smile that's full of confidence, using the latest cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry techniques.
Bridges are like a crown but they are designed to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Bridges are constructed to prevent teeth around the missing teeth (both the top and bottom teeth) from moving, to improve function/chewing, and to improve the appearance of teeth and jaw. In this case, the covered natural teeth are used as anchors or pillars to support and the artificial/missing teeth. They can be made up of either gold, porcelain or a combination of both. This procedure entails two appointments somewhat similar to the crown but can vary in the amount of time spent in the chair.
Composite / White Fillings
Composite Fillings are tooth coloured resin filling made up of mixtures of plastic materials and small glass particles, which can be used to fill both front and back teeth. Composite fillings are a better-looking alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings giving it a more natural appearance. The process is usually only one appointment, which involves the removal of decay from the tooth then filling the cavity layer by layer with the composite.
A Crown is a full outer coverage to the tooth and is usually made from gold, porcelain (ceramic) or a combination of both designed to fit comfortably over the natural tooth. Crowns are usually instigated to protect and strengthen weakened teeth. For example; teeth that have previously had Root Canal Treatment, or, have large fillings covering multiple surfaces of the tooth. This treatment usually requires two visits, the initial visit can take up to one and a half hours in order to prepare the tooth, and the second is usually less than 30 minutes appointment where the crown will be inserted.
Dental Bleaching is the lightening of discoloured or stained teeth, which general day-to-day cleaning cannot remove. This can be done either in the clinic or at home. The in-clinic option for teeth bleaching requires a simple visit where the dentist oversees the application of a strong peroxide-based chemical. This method is usually more ideal for an instantaneous lighter look. The at-home option consists of two short visits. The first visit is where the dentist takes moulds of your teeth to make a customized mouth tray fitting snugly around your teeth. At the second visit, the tray is inserted and detailed instructions of how to use the material, along with bleaching chemicals will be given to you.
The wearing of the tray will vary between 30 to two hours per day for a period of two weeks to gradually lighten the teeth. The result of the lighten teeth will vary from person to person but may not achieve total ‘white’ teeth.
Direct Laminate Veneers or Bonding
Direct Laminates are the adhesion of a thin layer of composite resin (tooth coloured, a mixture of plastic and small glass materials) onto the front surface of the tooth to conservatively re-create the form of the tooth to its natural or the desired colour.
Orthodontics / Braces
Orthodontics or braces is the process of straightening teeth to improve on appearance, health (to improve the ease of brushing and flossing of your teeth, and to reduce the potential wear of your teeth, and to reduce the potential damage to your gums) and function of the teeth and jaws (through speech, chewing, and possibly breathing). Orthodontics can be achieved through the use of fixed appliances/wires or removable appliances. It is generally suitable for people of all ages. As part of the initial examination, the dentist will discuss with you whether orthodontics/braces should be a consideration for your needs.
Porcelain Veneer is a thin layer of tooth-coloured ceramic that is specifically made to fit onto the front surface of teeth to create a more seamless smile. Veneers are usually recommended for the coverage of discoloured, blemished, chipped, mal-aligned, or misshaped teeth.
The process consists of several visits and each appointment can be quite lengthy. The first visit is to remove a thin layer of tooth structure from the surface in order to provide the room necessary to craft and shape the porcelain veneer. The second visit involves checking the fit and colour of the veneer prior to cementing the veneer.
