Dentures are a removable appliance used as a replacement of missing teeth. There are two common types of dentures.
A Full Denture is used when all teeth in that arch have been lost.
A Partial Denture is used when there are some teeth missing.
Veneers or "facings" require minimal invasive dental procedures. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of discoloured, chipped, weakened, misaligned teeth or gaps between teeth.
A small portion of the outer surface of your tooth enamel is removed and replaced with high strength porcelain made to the desired shape and colour.
Digital dentistry is the use of dental technologies, Computer Aided Dental Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing ( CADD/CAM), to produce dental restorations.
CADD/CAM can be used with the traditional methods of taking impressions. A complete digital workflow can be achieved using intraoral scanners.
A Dental Implant involves the surgical placement of an implant/fixture, much like a tooth root, in the jaw. The fixture is made of titanium which after time osseointegrates or "fuses" with your bone.
After 3-4 months we can make a permanent restoration to replace a missing tooth or teeth.
Implants can be used in crown and bridge fixed situations or to aid the retention of a denture.
A Crown is a type of dental restoration, which completely "caps" a tooth. A crown may be needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth.
A Bridge is used to replace a missing tooth. The teeth either side of the missing tooth are "capped" and a bridging crown/pontic replaces the gap. Crowns and bridges are cemented in the mouth and are fixed permanent solutions.
A Make Over or "Smile Design" is a process of improving someone's smile and is usually when patients want a dramatic change to their appearance.
This could be achieved by veneering multiple teeth and in some cases may require multiple dental restorations including crowns, bridges, veneers or implants to achieve the necessary result.
These devices are either a type of mouth guard or splint used to treat conditions such as bruxism, TMJ disorders, facial pain, tinnitus, migraine and stress-related headaches, sleep apnoea and snoring.
We make these devices under prescription from dentists and specialists to help treat a variety of conditions.
A Cosmetic Consultation is a service we offer to patients so we can understand what it is they would like improved about their smile and to advise them on how this may be achieved.
This could be for a tooth colour match for a crown, discussing improvements to dentures, whether implants would be beneficial for providing a full smile design proposal.
Digital Dentures are the same as conventional dentures and made using Computer Aided Dental Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CADD/CAM) technology. New software has been developed which means, in most cases, dentures can now be designed using CADD systems and are 3D printed, milled or a combination of the two.
