Porcelain Crowns
 
If your teeth have been chipped, broken or have been affected by tooth decay, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage. Crowns are popular restorations for those this with these dental complications, as they securely cap over the biting surfaces to protect the teeth and improve their shape.
 
A porcelain crown can offer you a natural-looking solution without sacrificing strength or resilience. Crafted by dental technologists using advanced technology, in most cases porcelain crowns will actually improve the appearance of your teeth.
 
How Does It Work?
 
Your dentist will provide an anaesthetic to numb the mouth before reshaping the damaged tooth to allow enough room for the crown. A putty-like material will then be moulded around the teeth to create an impression that can be sent to the dental laboratory.
 
How long will it take?
 
It can take up to 2 weeks to create a crown, so your dentist may attach a temporary crown while you are waiting. Once the crown has been created, your dentist will permanently bond it to the damaged tooth.
Porcelain Veneers
 
Veneers are not just for those with severely damaged teeth. These crafted shells of porcelain mimic the natural teeth and provide a durable solution to mis-shaped, poorly aligned and/or discolored teeth. Whether you want to correct small defects or have the complete Hollywood effect, the result is a new, long-lasting smile.
 
How Does It Work?
 
The procedure will start with your dentist remove 1-2 millimeters (roughly the thickness of a fingernail) of enamel from your tooth. A putty-like material will then be molded around the teeth to create an impression that can be sent to the dental laboratory.
 
How long will it take?
 
It can take up to 2 weeks to create a veneer, so your dentist may attach a temporary replacement during this time. Once the veneer has been created, your dentist will permanently bond the veneer to the natural tooth.

Regardless of how well we look after our teeth, few of us will ever have a perfect smile naturally. As we get older, our teeth inevitably become discoloured and worn, affecting their appearance and increasing the chances of developing a dental condition in the future.

While it is extremely common to want better teeth, few people take action to improve them. Cosmetic dentistry can alter the shape, colour and alignment of teeth for a complete smile transformation. Not only will this provide a new confidence, but it can reduce the need for expensive dental restorations in the long-term. Talk to your dentist about the treatments listed below to find out how you can enhance your smile:

 

    Dental implants

    Tooth whitening

    Veneers

    Porcelain crowns

 

   

 

It is very important that you take good care of your teeth and gums in between your regular dental check-up appointments. Our caring dental staff will teach you how to maintain good oral hygiene habits. Ensuring you see your dentist twice a year for a check-up and clean will also help prevent any dental problems.

 

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean in order to prevent dental problems and bad breath (halitosis). The following are general guidelines about flossing and brushing that you may find useful:

 Teeth cleaning

 

 

Teeth cleaning is the removal of dental plaque from teeth in order to prevent cavities and gum disease. Generally, dentists recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally at least twice per year. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling, tooth polishing, and, if too much plaque and calculus has built up, debridement. This should be followed by a fluoride treatment, which also helps to prevent any post-operative sensitivity following the clean.

 

Between cleanings, good oral hygiene is essential for preventing plaque build-up which causes the problems mentioned above. This is done by carefully and frequently brushing the inside, outside and tops of your teeth with a soft toothbrush and also using dental floss to prevent accumulation of bacteria between the teeth.

 Tongue cleaning

 

 

 

Dental specialists recommend daily use of a tongue cleaner as an essential way to remove the debris coating the tongue. This debris is composed of a large variety of bacteria, oral fungi, decaying food particles and dead cells, that all together generate bad breath (halitosis) and may affect the health of teeth and gums (tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontitis).

 

 Flossing

 

 

The use of dental floss is an important element of oral hygiene, since it removes the dental plaque and the decaying food remains stuck between the teeth. Flossing for proper inter-dental cleaning is recommended at least once per day, preferably before bedtime, to help prevent receeding gums, gum disease, and cavities between the teeth. It should be an important part of your oral hygiene regime and yet this is the step that most people forget to do!

 

 Gum care

 

 

 

  

Massaging gums is generally recommended for good oral health. Remember to gently swipe over your gums when brushing your teeth to ensure nothing is caught at your gum-tooth interface. Your dentist will show you a good brushing technique when you come in for your check-up and clean. It is also helpful to use a daily mouthwash to ensure that your teeth and gums remain debris-free and healthy. Alcohol-free mouthwashes are gentle enough to use daily and for children.
