Veneers – Ceramic – Composite

A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth’s surface from damage.

There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer:composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using resin cements. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.


Implant Supported Bridge

If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.


Dental Crown and Bridge

Dental crown is a protective shield covering the compromised structure of the crown of a tooth. Typically teeth that are heavily filled or badly broken down need to be crowned. Dental crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or all ceramic.

A bridge is made up of two crowns one on each tooth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials.


Single Tooth Implant Replacement

If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

A dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, a dental implant replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighboring teeth. The other common treatment for the loss of a single tooth, a tooth-supported fixed bridge, requires that adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.


Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are the tiny canals that contain the pulp of the tooth, also commonly referred to as the nerve. Any trauma or infection of the nerve will result in the need for root canal therapy.

Before the procedure, your dentist will advise you as to the number of appointments necessary to complete the canal, either two or three. Following the root canal therapy we may recommend having a crown put on to the tooth as the crown of tooth will be heavily restored with a large filling. Since the nerve and blood supply to the tooth has been taken away, the tooth may become brittle over time, resulting in a cracked tooth. A crown is designed to prevent this from happening.


Professional Whitening Zoom

A white smile can be a confidence booster and a great way to get noticed. Depending on our everyday choices, we may not have the smile we always wanted. Wine, tobacco, tea, soda and other substances can cause teeth staining.

Certain products may remove surface stains by using abrasion or through a chemical reaction. Whitening toothpastes may contain silica molecules that polish the enamel. Rechargeable toothbrushes use the action of the bristles on the tooth surface to remove the stains.


Preventive Therapy – Routine Oral

Having your mouth and teeth checked routinely will ensure early detection of a problem or risk factor which may result in harm to an individual’s oral health i.e, caries, gum disease, bone loss or other pathology.


Dental Emergency – Traumatised Tee The th!!

Dental emergency is a broad term used to describe an issue involving the teeth and supporting tissues that is of high importance to be treated. Dental emergencies do not always involve pain, although this is a common signal that something needs to be looked at. Pain can originate from the tooth, surrounding tissues or can have the sensation of originating in the teeth but be caused by an independent source (orofacial pain and toothache).
