Thanks to some powerful technology, we can simulate the outcome of your personal transformation right before your eyes.
If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, you may be considering cosmetic dental treatment to improve the look of your teeth. There are a wide range of cosmetic treatments available at our practice, with something to suit every patient's needs and budget. For patients who are interested in cosmetic dentistry but are not sure which treatment best suits their needs, we provide smile makeovers.
Smile makeovers make use of the latest technology to assess your smile and work out which treatments will work best to give you the smile of your dreams
You may be looking for a quick brightness boost in preparation for a special occasion such as a wedding or important business meeting, in which case tooth whitening may give you the smile you've always wanted. Alternatively, if your teeth are gappy, crooked or cracked, we may recommend porcelain veneers, composite bonding or discreet orthodontic treatment.
Once we've established what you want to achieve, we'll use photographs, x-rays and in some cases models to show you what we can do, and discuss the best treatments for your individual case.
If you are self-conscious about the shade of your teeth or if you have staining on some of your teeth, professional teeth whitening treatment is a safe and recommended option for you to consider.
Home teeth whitening kits are also available to lighten the teeth more gradually. In this case, the trays with bleaching agent can be worn overnight. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependant on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.
Have you lost all or some of your natural teeth? Bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solution, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Have you heard of dental implants? Implant dentistry offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting a great smile back and being able to bite and chew with confidence.
If your dentures are becoming uncomfortable and tiring, we have a fast, efficient and comfortable solution that will give you a second chance at the feeling of a mouth full of stable, permanent teeth.
All-on-4 is a revolutionary and highly advanced new method that allows a full mouth of new teeth to rest with complete, proven stability on only four implants. Here's what it involves:
At our practice, we understand the impact a smile can have. We would never send you out without a complete smile. That's why, usually, we will fit you with a temporary bridge (which looks identical to your natural teeth and functions just as well) before we add your permanent denture six months later.
We also offer sedation options for nervous patients. Dentistry doesn't have to be frightening! With modern sedatives, many patients will hardly know they've been in surgery.
Do you or your partner suffer from breathing difficulties during sleep such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea? You might be pleased to know that dentistry may have a solution for you. A variety of oral devices or mouthpieces are now available that will address your snoring problems. By preventing the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep, these devices can prevent the closure of your airways, which will stop you from snoring. Your dentist can fit one of these for you.
Neuromuscular Dentistry is about getting your bite right. Your bite or occlusion is the position of your jaw when your teeth are together, seems very basic but your occlusion is very important and can affect your health in many ways.
Neuromuscular dentistry goes beyond using your habitual bite (wherever your bite is naturally) as the basis for planning treatment. Neuromuscular dentists take into consideration your muscles, jaw joints and teeth in order to achieve an optimal bite.
If your muscles, jaw joints or teeth are for any reason not aligned, you may get symptoms of Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ Disorder).
Symptoms can include:
Headaches Jaw joint pain Jaw joint noise or clicking Limited mouth opening Ear congestion Dizziness Ringing in the ears Difficulty swallowing Loose teeth Clenching or grinding Facial pain Sensitive teeth Chewing difficulties Neck pain Postural problems Tingling of the fingertips Hot & cold sensitivity Nervousness or insomnia
Even if you do not have a specific pain issue and are just seeking restorative and cosmetic treatment, preliminary evaluation using a neuromuscular approach is advised to uncover any problems that might occur after your restoration is complete.
Treatment for a diagnosed TMJ Disorder will involve:
a. Relieve muscle spasm and pain
Our immediate concern is to provide relief of your symptoms. The best way to do this is by using a technology to relax the facial muscles. The use of a rhythmic pulsing machine relaxes the muscles by increasing blood flow and pumping out waste products. This technology also helps with pain relief by stimulating the body's production of endorphins, the body's natural anaesthetic.
b. Stabilise the bite
Orthotics worn over you teeth, allow us to make easy adjustments to the plastic without adjusting the teeth until the bite is stabilized. Once symptoms are relieved and the bite has been stabilized, we will move on to the next step and permanently adjust your bite to the correct position.
c. Long-term management
There are a variety of ways to correct your bite in a more permanent way. Four of the most common of these approaches are outlined below:
