Cosmetic Dentistry

Beautiful teeth backing a friendly smile can truly make a person stand out.

Brushing

Use small circular movements with the brush held at 45 degrees to the tooth.

Missing Tooth Option

You could have an Implant which doesn't affect the adjacent teeth.

 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most realistic tooth replacement therapy available. Comprised of a tiny titanium screw and a custom-made replacement tooth, dental implants replace your original tooth in functionality and appearance.

The small titanium screw (or post) is implanted in the bone beneath the missing tooth’s socket. The replacement tooth is attached to this screw creating a bond to your jaw bone that is as strong as your original tooth and root.

Dental implants are often the preferred tooth replacement therapy and only a lack of solid bone under the tooth socket can cause this treatment choice to be rejected.

Your dental implant will look and functions like your original tooth – except that it will be impervious to decay. Please refer to the following dental implants animation for further details.

Implant Temporary

When an implant is placed, it can be some months before the new tooth is fitted. A temporary denture can be made for cosmetic purposes. But the impact from the lower jaw can disturb the implant and affect the healing process. As an alternative an adhesive bridge can be made which is fixed to the adjacent tooth. This provides a tiny, but permanent gap between the tooth and the new implant.

Implants with Bar

A number of Implants may be used to secure a lower denture. A hole is made in the jaw bone for each Implant. The Implant is positioned and a Healing Cap applied. The gum is replaced while the bone recovers. Access to the Implant is made and the second part of the Implant is attached. The bars are attached and tiny magnets in the denture then keep it securely in place.

Implant Crown Options

Once an Implant has been placed an abutment is fitted to hold the Crown. The abutment and the base of the crown may be metal. However, in certain light, this can make the tooth look dull. An alternative is for the abutment to be made of white material and the Crown made of solid porcelain. This will give a more natural look to the tooth.
