A “composite” is a tooth coloured restoration used to restore cavities or chipped teeth. When a tooth to be restored is in the “aesthetic zone”, i.e. whenever a tooth is visible in the smile, or near the front of your mouth, we utilise tooth-coloured restorations that give you a natural smile. Tooth coloured materials are more biocompatible than metal amalgam fillings and offer a far more robust finish.
Dental crowns are a ceramic shell, covering a core of natural tooth. Their function is to provide strength and to restore natural beauty to heavily filled or worn natural teeth.
Before a tooth is ready to receive a crown, the dentist must first reduce the tooth in size, so that the crown can fit over the prepared tooth.
Removable partial dentures provide a cost effective and simple solution to replace missing teeth. Sometimes treatment with dental implants or bridge work is not possible and therefore a removable partial denture becomes the treatment of choice.
With safety in mind, Fastbraces® Technology was developed to straighten teeth differently, allowing for a fast, safe and affordable solution.
Fastbraces® Technology allows for movement of the roots of the teeth towards their final positions from the beginning of treatment by torqueing them from the very first appointment.
Root canal treatment or therapy is carried out when the pulp (the nerve inside a tooth) is either inflamed or dead. The purpose of root canal treatment is to remove the inflamed tissue or bacteria inside the root canal and thus allow the surrounding tissues to heal.
