The regular removal of stain, plaque and tartar is absolutely essential to the long term health of teeth and gums. This service is provided by the dental hygienist.
Whitening is a very effective technique for lightening teeth. This is done using different techniques, such as Zoom Whitening, whitening strips, and whitening trays. It will not, however, alter the appearance of existing fillings and crowns.
This can be used to remove blemishes on the surface of the teeth, provided they are not too deep.
This technique can be used to alter the shape of worn or chipped teeth - providing the damage is not too great. Composite materials are used to mask defects and close spaces. The results are instant, but be prepared to replace these restorations more frequently. Better long-term alternatives involve veneers or crowns.
When the cavity is large, an inlay is needed for strength. These restorations a fabricated by a dental lab and usually require a second appointment at the office for insertion.
These are thin porcelain surfaces which are bonded over the front tooth surface. Only minimal tooth reduction is needed. Veneers can be used to correct ageing smile lines, close spaces and change the colour of teeth.
These are used when a tooth is heavily filled or was previously treated with a root canal treatment. Crowns provide excellent strength to the tooth while improving overall aesthetics.
Single visit porcelain fillings (inlays/onlays) and crowns that are made with our state of the art Cerec machine. Benefits to Cerec is no impressions required also no 2nd appointment for cementation, therefore no temporary restoration is placed. Perectly bonded porcelain ensures maximum strength for beautiful teeth that last longer than traditional fillings.
Bridges are restorations designed to replace missing teeth. It involves reducing the size of the adjacent teeth which act as supports. There is a limit to the length which can be bridged and there needs to be a tooth support at each end for long term success.
These can be full (whole arch or whole mouth) or partial ( replacing one or several teeth). All dentures are removable and have a tendency to move. To achieve stability, partial dentures need to be clasped to the natural teeth. Both partial and complete dentures can be made to appear quite natural using the latest artificial teeth and acrylics.
This type of tooth replacement involves the placing of a titanium root within the bone. This artificial root is allowed to integrate into the bone for 4-6 months before a crown or bridge is attached to it. During the healing phase, a temporary denture restores your smile. The success rate for implants can be as high as 95%.
This is a category of dentistry that concentrates on making your teeth look their best and last longer. It may include veneers, composite or ceramic inlays, crowns, bridges, and tooth-coloured fillings.
Root Canal Treatment
There is often damage to the nerves and soft tissues inside your teeth, requiring the need to have a root canal performed. Essentially, this is the process of removing this soft tissue from inside the teeth to end pain, sensitivity, or recurring infection.
Many people have sleeping problems related to snoring. Often this can be corrected by having the proper dental prosthesis in place.
Grinding Teeth (Bruxing)
Bruxing is the unintentional grinding together of your teeth. Most people do not even know that they are doing it because they are sleeping or concentrating on some activity. There needs to be therapy to keep the teeth from being damaged by the constant grinding.
Going to the dental office for regular checkups will be one of the most effective ways to keep your teeth and gums healthy. By a close examination and cleaning, your dental professional will be able to detect early signs of tooth decay or damage to the gums.
Teeth that need to be straightened to create a more beautiful smile or teeth that need to be moved so that a patient can chew properly can be done through orthodontic treatments. Some treatments are more extensive and require a long-term commitment or will require surgery.
Sealants are an excellent way to reduce the incidence of cavities in a young persons mouth. A sealant is simply a very thin layer of material that is bonded to the biting surface of the back teeth creating a barrier that protects the teeth from getting cavities.
