Dental implantation is a procedure to replace missing or damaged teeth. Dental implants are placed in the jawbone in positions similar to those of the teeth that have been lost. Their success is due to the fact that the bone of the jaw forms a bond with the dental implant, then it is firmly anchored in the bone. Only dental implants made from titanium undergo this unique bonding process due to its biocompatible properties.
A porcelain veneer is a thin layer of porcelain which is made to cover the front surface of the tooth. A porcelain veneer can change the appearance of the existing tooth, similar to a false nail.
Many patients suffering from dental problems such as discoloured, crooked or mal-positioned teeth, are able to experience brilliant results with porcelain veneers. By using a porcelain compound, which is added to the tooth in a number of very fine layers, the appearance of a tooth can be significantly improved.
In your initial appointment you and your dentist will work out exactly what you want and ensure that we are able to deliver the desired results. Then, your dentist will remove a thin layer of your existing teeth to create room for the veneer. Finally your veneer will be expertly created and permanently affixed to your existing teeth at the gum-line so you walk out with a bright, new smile.
If you are suffering from crooked, gapped, chipped, discoloured, small, worn or generally unsatisfying teeth, contact our friendly team at The Dental Practice in Bathurst to arrange a consultation.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental Crowns can be made from a variety of differing substances. Selection of a particular type of crown should be based upon factors such as function, strength and aesthetics. All-ceramic crowns are the restoration of choice for cosmetic dentistry because they are similar in look to that of natural teeth enabling a very desirable effect.
Bridging is an alternative method of replacing missing teeth. To construct a bridge, adjacent teeth are reduced to allow crowns to be fitted and the bridge span is then attached.
If you are suffering from missing or damaged teeth and feel that crowns or bridges may be the answer, contact our friendly team at The Dental Practice in Bathurst to arrange a consultation.
Many people are seeking whiter looking teeth. Unfortunately common, everyday habits such as drinking coffee, tea or red wine can stain your teeth. Smoking and eating certain foods can also contribute to the darkening of your teeth along with various medications and many other factors.
These “chromogenic” substances have an accumulative effect over time and the end result is dark, yellow teeth. At The Dental Practice we have the ability intercept this process with simple and effective treatment. Using our special whitening technology we can help lighten the natural colour of your teeth by up to eight shades in a single visit, so you walk out with a brighter, whiter smile.
Invisalign is an advanced cosmetic dental treatment to help straighten teeth. The name comes from the fact that they are clear (i.e. virtually invisible) teeth aligners that are custom-designed by an orthodontist.
