What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are small thin porcelain shells that are placed directly on top of your teeth. They can eliminate gaps between teeth, tooth discolouration and broken / chipped teeth.

What are Dental Crowns?

Like veneers, dental crowns are made of porcelain and act as a cap or crown for your teeth. They are often combined with dental bridges to replace missing teeth.

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

We recommend your child starts visiting the dentist from an early age, preferably when they are around 7 years old.

What is the different between conventional braces and Invisalign?

There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.

What is a root canal?

The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.

How can you restore my smile?

Advancements in dental technology allow us to completely restore a patient’s smile. There are a variety of treatments that may be suggested. We recommend you visit our practice and schedule in a dental consultation. This allows us to assess your dental health and develop a plan of action to ensure you have healthy teeth for life.

My wisdom teeth are causing pain. Should I have them removed?

Because often modern jaws are not big enough to accommodate these extra teeth, in the majority of cases we do recommend they are removed. We recommend you come into our practice for a thorough examination to determine the path we take in ensuring your dental health.

I am afraid of the dentist. Do you offer virtually pain free dentistry?

For anxious patients, we provide a number of pain management options including happy gas and sleep dentistry to ensure that these patients can receive the dental work they need. To learn more please visit our sleep dentist page.

How often should I visit the dentist for a dental check-up?

We recommend you visit our practice every 6 months for your dental check-up and fluoride treatment. This way minors dental issues can be addressed before they potentially become major problems.
