We offer a range of services, including:
Emergency Dental Care
We endeavour to make time to see you immediately should you have severe toothache, or if you have broken a tooth. Play ground, sporting accidents and severe infections in the face are common emergency appointments.
Preventative dentistry helps to avoid cavities and gum disease. Your oral health is maintained because of annual dental examinations. This allows your dentist to identify problems early and take care of them right away. We have an early intervention policy.
Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth. These treatments include – veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, teeth whitening and removal of amalgam restorations. These treatments are cosmetic, but they also improve your overall health. They can also be preventative treatment. An example of this is when a tooth is heavily restored and has cracks. A crown is not only going to look better than a heavily restored tooth, but also be a lot stronger, prevent future breakages and possible loss of the tooth altogether. Another example is amalgam restorations. Amalgam can potentially be very harmful to your overall health and also damaging to your teeth. Once amalgam is replaced you are healthier and your teeth look better too. We are an amalgam free practice.
Crowns & Bridges
Crown treatment is designed to restore teeth to a higher level than composite restorations can achieve. They are indicated when a large part of a tooth is restored with composite creating a risk of further damage, or being lost all together. A crown can be described as a helmet that is placed over the whole tooth to offer protection. A bridge is indicated when a patient has a missing tooth and they want it replaced. This is only a proposed treatment plan when the teeth either side of the gap are in a bad condition and could benefit from a crown. A bridge consists of a crown either side of a missing tooth and a fake tooth between the crowns, therefore bridging the gap where a missing tooth once was. These treatment options are constructed in a lab and usually take two weeks to be completed.
Teeth whitening is a process where your teeth become whiter after applying bleach at night time. The process is convenient because it is completed in the comfort of your own home. It is also the least invasive method of improving the colour of your teeth.
By replacing a lost tooth with a dental implant, the overall health and function of the surrounding teeth is maintained. The implant can prevent tooth migration and loss of structure and will help avoid loss of bone from the jaw in that area.
