There are many options available to people nowadays if they wish to improve their smile. We offer a wide range of advanced services to help you achieve your desired result. These include Tooth Whitening, Bonding, White fillings, Veneers, Crowns, Bridgework and Implants.
This is one of the most popular services that we offer. The modern diet is full of things that stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, smoking and so on. If you also consider that the tooth tends to get darker naturally as we age, the smile loses some of its natural sparkle as we get older.
We can combat this by simply whitening the teeth, and this can have a major impact on your smile. It’s easy to do and harmless to the teeth, with results that will last.
As with all procedures, a proper dental exam is necessary before beginning and a note made as to the shade of the teeth prior to whitening.
Using modern techniques of bonding filling material to the teeth, we can change the appearance of the teeth with minimal intervention – less pain, less drilling and more conservation of tooth structure!
This technique is used mainly in the front teeth and can be used in multiple ways, from reshaping the teeth to filling in gaps. It can even be used to get rid of those black triangles that tend to appear as we get older!
For best results, often a combination of Straightening, Whitening and Bonding will give you the smile you have always wanted.
Veneers, Crowns and Bridges
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that fit over your tooth to improve its appearance. They are often used to close gaps, lengthen teeth and change the shape and colour of the teeth as required.
Crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken-down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing, damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps (because a crown sits over your existing tooth, covering the entire outer surface).
Dental Bridges are custom fit/bespoke ceramic teeth, which are anchored onto neighboring teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are recommended when missing teeth affect:
– Your smile and appearance.
– Your bite, as a result of adjacent teeth leaning into the space and altering the way the upper and lower teeth bite together.
Are you reluctant to smile for any of the following reasons? Missing one or more teeth? Experience pain or discomfort when chewing or biting? Dentures no longer fit? Then dental implants may be a realistic option for you and may help you to smile with confidence again.
What is an implant?
A dental implant is an artificial prosthetic, normally a titanium screw, that is used to replace the root of a tooth and to support a dental restoration such as a crown, bridge or denture. Implants may be used to replace one, some or all teeth.
Planning for implants is an involved process but can achieve success rates in excess of 90% and a lifetime of more than 15 years. Key factors in the success of an implant procedure are the health and quality of existing bone, periodontal condition and occlusion (how the opposing teeth come together).
