Teeth may be discoloured by various factors, including diet, smoking, age, poor oral hygiene and certain medicines. Other reasons include dental problems such as injury, decay or excess fluoride. The cause of the discolouration needs to be assessed to ensure that tooth whitening is the best treatment for you. Results may last up to 3 years but most teeth whitening treatments can be re-applied after 12 months.
We have exciting new whitening products that can make that smile you always wanted within reach.
Crowns are used for several different reasons such as repairing a fractured or heavily filled tooth, but they are much stronger than a standard tooth filling. Dental crowns can be made out of many different materials; the most common is ceramic on the outside and metal alloy on the inside. Other options are all ceramic crowns and gold alloys.
The crown is custom made to fit your tooth. Not only can they improve the appearance of your teeth they also serve to protect the remaining tooth structure.
Veneers are usually placed on the upper and lower front teeth. They can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Veneers are excellent for treating teeth that are chipped, discoloured, slightly misaligned or misshapen, and can also mask gaps between the teeth. There are two types of veneers: porcelain and composite.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-coloured ceramic shells that cover the front of the tooth. Minimal or no preparation is made to the tooth surface so it is a good conservative option for many patients.
Porcelain has the more natural appearance of your own tooth enamel so can blend in really well without it looking like “fake teeth”
Composite veneers are very similar to getting a filling done. Composite veneers are done in one visit, so you can leave with a new smile instantly, they are also able to be reshaped/removed unlike porcelain veneers which can’t be changed once in place.
