Cosmetic Dentistry

We are hear to listen to your concerns and particular issues that need to be addressed to your satisfaction. We are able to do a smile assessment and then discuss possible methods, treatment and/or alternatives to achieve this. We are very transparent.

If due to extensive damage to your teeth or multiple restorations have made your teeth look ‘tired’ then you may consider tooth alteation or fixed replacements may be required. This is where Veneers, Crowns & Bridges may be a treatment option for you.

And remember, it’s always best to consult us so we can determine what you really need.

Veneers

There are various ways to improve your smile. Veneers, Crowns & Bridges may be alternatives.

Veneers are custom made shells or facings, that when applied to the surface of a tooth, can greatly help to cosmetically improve a smile.
Veneers can be used for a variety of dental problems, including:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Protect cracked and fractured teeth
  • Strengthen and protect root canal treated teeth
  • Restore functioning of a tooth damaged by decay
  •  Improve the appearance of teeth

Crowns

Crowns require the reduction of tooth structure and are less conservative than veneer preparations. They can be made from either all-porcelain, gold covered by porcelain or all-gold. The material selected depends on the needs of each individual patient and takes into account aesthetic demands, strength requirements and the amount of tooth structure and space available.

Bridges

A bridge is one alternative for the replacement of missing teeth. It generally requires the shaping and reduction of the teeth directly next to a missing tooth and is particularly indicated in cases where the teeth adjacent to the missing one are damaged or heavily filled and crowns are required. Crowns are then placed on the shaped teeth and attached to an artificial tooth which replaces the missing tooth.

Both crown and bridge procedures typically require two appointments. In the first appointment, the tooth is prepared for a crown and a mould is taken in order to make the crowns/bridge in the laboratory. A temporary crown/bridge is then placed on the tooth to protect them from damage. At the second appointment approximately two weeks after the first, the temporary crown/bridge is removed and the permanent crown/bridge is fitted and cemented onto the teeth.

Professional Whitening

20% of people will experience some sensitivity during the procedure. Reasons for sensitivity are

  •  fine cracks in the teeth
  •  grinding
  •  toothbrush abrasion (enamel wear)

The sensitivity can last up to 24 hours after treatment. Sensitivity varies from patient to patient depending on the condition of the teeth. We recommend a product called tooth mousse after the whitening to reduce sensitivity.
