White Filings

White (tooth coloured) fillings can be used to restore teeth that have cavities due to decay. They can also be used to improve the shape of your teeth or to close small gaps between teeth. Your dentist will try and match the filling as close to your natural tooth colour.

Veneers

Veneers are made out of porcelain and are used mainly for aesthetic purposes. They can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to improve the colour of a discoloured or stained tooth. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking will cause further staining and therefore the naturally bright white shade of your teeth becomes darkened. Tooth whitening is a simple way of lightening the colour of your teeth. There are two main ways to whiten your teeth: In Chair Whitening or Home Whitening. Your dentist will discuss the processes and options so that you can decide what will suit you best.

Crowns and Bridges

A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It is also known as a “cap”.

Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken down by decay, have very large fillings or root treated teeth. They can be made from porcelain, ceramic or gold or a combination of materials. The cost of the crowns will vary depending on the type of crown and the material used. Your dentist will explain the various options and costs and treatment plan estimate will be provided prior to all treatment.

A bridge is used to restore gaps between your teeth. They are made up from more than one crown being joined together, in order to close the gap caused by a missing tooth, between two supporting teeth. There are many types of bridges which will be discussed by your dentist.

Dentures

Dentures can be used to restore gaps created by missing teeth. They will provide structure to your smile and can prevent the surrounding facial muscles from sagging. If all your teeth are missing then a complete denture is required, whereas if only a few teeth are missing then a partial denture can be considered. Dentures will not only help restore your smile but can help protect any existing teeth and improve chewing.

There are several different types of dentures and material, such as acrylic, metal and chrome based dentures and flexible (Valplast) dentures. Your dentist will explain the difference in the dentures to help you decide and what will suit you best.

Invisalign

Invisalign

Invisalign treatment is a way of transforming your smile by correcting various issues such as overcrowding, widely spaced teeth, crossbites, overbites and underbites.

It consists of a series of nearly invisible removable aligners that you change approximately every 2 weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is manufactured for your teeth only.

It is important to visit an Invisalign trained dental practioner for an assessment to see if this treatment will be of benefit for you.
