    Dental Implants

    Dental Implants are the ideal solution if you are missing teeth. They are a permanent replacement option that looks and feels like a real tooth. To begin with, a titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gumline- this acts like a new root for the tooth and allows the dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into the area. A dental implant is the next best option when it comes to replacing your natural tooth. They also benefit oral health because they do not have to be attached to other teeth, like bridges.

    Composite bonding/Mercury-free fillings

    Do you need a filling? Do you have a chip on your tooth? Maybe you have large gaps between or teeth or peg lateral teeth. If so, composite bonding is the answer. Gone are the days when a filling was a glaring dark spot in your mouth. Nowadays, we can make your filling the same colour as your tooth. Not only is composite bonding attractive but it’s also just as strong as the amalgam option.

    If you have existing amalgam fillings, we can replace these with tooth-coloured composites so no one will ever know you’ve had a filling.

    Veneers

    Are your teeth out of line? Are they pigmented with fluorosis stains? Are they almost translucent? If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, veneers can be the cure for you. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. The two most common materials used in dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain. Both types of veneers can be fabricated by a dental technician in a laboratory and are bonded to the patient’s teeth in a dentist’s office. Dental veneers are bonded to the teeth with resin cement. Porcelain material is brittle; however, when it is firmly bonded to the tooth it can become very strong and durable. Porcelain is also highly polished, and will not stain as easily as composite resin, making them popular for those seeking a perfect smile.

    Veneers are a great way to camouflage unpleasant, aged teeth – just take at look at our Gallery page to see what a difference they can make

    Crown and bridge work

    Crowns and Bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist or prosthodontist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. We may recommend a crown to:

    • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
    • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
    • Restore a fractured tooth
    • Attach a bridge

    They can also used for aesthetic purposes, for example, to mask the colour of a discoloured tooth, or heavily amalgam-filled teeth

    Bridge work is made with two or more crowns joined together to close gaps in your mouth where multiple teeth may be missing. They are used for both functional and aesthetic purposes and are a great alternative to dentures. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.

    Benefits of  BRIDGES & CROWNS

    In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, bridges and crowns can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and dental occlusion (bite). Gaps left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Bridges and crowns help prevent this from happening.

    Dentures

    If you have missing teeth, dentures are one alternative to replace your lost teeth. They are a more cost effective and quick way to help patients replace their missing teeth and help them feel more confident with their smile, whilst enabling them to eat a broader range of food.

    There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. We will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced. The dentures are then custom-made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. 

    Conventional full dentures

    In this situation, a conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after any remaining teeth are removed, and tissues have healed. Healing may take several months, during which time you are without teeth.

    Alternatively, a full denture can be made prior to and inserted into the mouth immediately after the remaining teeth are removed. The denture is made of moulds and models that were made of your jaw during a prior visit so that your denture is ready for you at the same appointment you teeth/tooth are being removed. While immediate dentures offer the benefit of never having to be without your teeth, they must be relined several months after being inserted. This is because the bone supporting the teeth reshapes as it heals, causing the denture to become loose and gums to recede.

    Partial dentures

    A partial denture rests on a metal or acrylic framework that attaches to your natural teeth. Sometimes crowns are placed on some of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for the denture. Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to bridges.
