      Veneers

      Porcelain Veneers / Crowns

      Veneers change the colour and / or shape of the facial surfaces of the teeth which are visible when smiling.

      • Crowns and bridges restore a severely damaged tooth to an ideal tooth. They may be metal free or porcelain with metal substructure

      Root Canal

      Treatment

      This is when the nerve of the tooth has died. Remnants of dead nerve is removed and disinfected with Sodium Hypochlorite and Chlorhexidine.

      • The root canal which houses the nerve must be cleansed of all remnants of the dead nerve and disinfected. The root canal is then filled with a rubber-like substance called gutta percha and a cement used as a sealer
      • This creates a seal at the top and bottom of the root canal, which prevents microorganisms from colonising and infecting the root canal system. This prevention of microbial colonisation allows the tissues around the tooth, which become infected when the nerve dies, to slowly heal
      • Root canal treatment saves the tooth and prevents the tooth from having to be extracted

      Fillings &

      Restorations

      The goal of a filling / restoration is to restore tooth function, aesthetics and prevent further tooth destruction. We use numerous types of filling materials depending of each individual clinical situation.

      The fillings materials we use include:

      • Composite Resin / White fillings
      • Glass Ionomer & Resin Modified Glass Ionomer Fillings
      • These Ionomer fillings release fluoride which actually help to prevent further tooth decay
      • Amalgam / Silver Fillings only when the tooth is severely damaged
