Maintaining proper dental hygiene is paramount in ensuring a healthy smile, teeth and gums.
In addition to brushing your teeth and flossing every day, it's important to see a dentist regularly for a general check up and clean. Not only will you avoid having issues like cavities or gum problems go undetected, but regular dental check ups can also prevent the need for any major dental work down the track. By having regular check ups your dentist will address these issues as soon as they appear.
Similar to getting regular maintenance on your car to prolong it's life, regular check ups on your teeth will help maintain their health for years to come! Below you will find more information about our general dentistry services and treatments:
Reduce your risk of tooth decay, erosion, gum disease and other oral health problems with our range of preventative dental treatments. Services include fissure seals, mouth guards, occlusal splints and replacement of old restorations.
Our dentists can repair chipped, cracked, fractured or decayed teeth with tooth-coloured composite fillings, ceramic restorations and gold restorations. Restorations or fillings are also the ideal treatment for some gum issues, sensitivity or old fillings that need repair.
Over the years, teeth can become stained from certain foods, coffee, smoking and even medications. A safe and fast way to achieve a whiter, brighter and more youthful smile is through teeth whitening. We provide both in-chair and at home teeth whitening treatments to enhance your smile.
For teeth where a general restoration is not the best option, your dentist may recommend a crown or cap that improves strength and the appearance of the tooth. A dental bridge can also improve the appearance of your smile if there are large gaps or missing teeth that you wish to have closed.
When the nerve or pulp of the tooth is compromised either by infection, trauma or decay, you may experience pain, swelling or severe sensitivity to hot or cold, and may have a large cavity. In this instance, a root canal treatment may be your best option if you wish to avoid tooth extraction.
Dentures are a removable tooth replacement option that can range from single, partial (for a few missing teeth) or full tooth replacement (for a whole arch). We can build you a customised denture to suit your needs.
