COSMETIC  DENTISTRY

 

TEETH WHITENING

If you are self-conscious about the shade of your teeth or if you have staining on some of your teeth, professional teeth whitening treatment is a safe and recommended option for you to consider. Here is how teeth whitening works:

  1. You will be assessed for the type of staining your teeth have.

  2. A custom tray is made to fit snugly over your teeth.

  3. The teeth whitening process is activated by a bleaching agent, which is inserted into the custom tray that transfers it onto your teeth.


Home teeth whitening kits are also available to lighten the teeth more gradually. In this case, the trays with bleaching agent can be worn overnight. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependant on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.

Life Benefits:
●    Effective solution for certain types of tooth discolouration and staining.
●    Safe treatment when delivered by a dental professional.
●    Cosmetically enhances the appearance of teeth.

 

PORCELAIN VENEERS

Are your teeth stained, chipped, or not aligned on top of each other? Veneers are a good treatment option to consider because they look like natural teeth and don’t require a major procedure. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps when braces are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted to bring it into line with the others.

 

Here is how they work:

  1. A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail, but more durable) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.

  2. Based on your needs, the shape and size of the veneers can be adjusted to make your teeth overall look longer and or closer together.

  3. You can have just one veneer fitted or a whole set, known as a smile makeover.


Life benefits:
●    Simple and quick solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth.
●    Long-lasting smile enhancement.
●    Natural-looking restoration.

 

WHITE FILLINGS

If you require a filling in your tooth, a cosmetic option would be to choose a white filling material that matches the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. You can also have any existing metallic fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or ‘white’ fillings. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall. Here is how white fillings work:
 

  1. This is a safe procedure that entails the removal of any decay from your tooth, and taking out the metal or amalgam fillings if you are having them replaced.

  2. The new filling is made from a very hard tooth-coloured substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time.

  3. The restoration is completed in one visit and your fillings will not be visible when you smile.


Life benefits:
●    Natural-looking restoration.
●    Improved cosmetic appearance of filled teeth while still being able to bite and chew as usual.
●    Hard-wearing restorative solution.

 

INVISIBLE BRACES

There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional unsightly metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.   

This is often a favourable option for adults who have professional careers and don’t feel comfortable wearing unsightly ‘train track’ braces for months on end. The technology behind invisible orthodontics is highly advanced and often gives patients a much shorter treatment time, depending on their individual cases.

 

Here is an overview of how they work:

  1. They straighten teeth discreetly, and some can even be removed periodically, making them easier to fit around your hectic lifestyle.

  2. They straighten teeth much more quickly than traditional braces, starting from as little as six months.

  3. They are more comfortable than traditional braces because they use less force and modern wire technology.
     

Life benefits:

●    Straighter teeth are healthier teeth.
●    Having an attractive smile will have a positive effect on your confidence.
●    Invisible braces are a long-term investment in your oral health.

PURASMILE CLEAR BRACES

 

PuraSmile clear cosmetic braces are prescribed by a registered dentist. Therefore our process is kept very simple. Once accepted for treatment, our braces dentist will take imprints of your teeth, so we can manufacture your personalised clear braces.

You can then go about your everyday life, with your braces in. No-one will now, and just remove for eating. Change sets as directed. Your teeth will slowly but surely move to the perfect position. After your course, you can smile like you’ve always wanted to!

 

ORTHODONTICS

An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty area in dentistry that focuses on aligning and straightening teeth using wires and brackets, applying gentle pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position. The discipline has advanced over decades and today treatment is a lot faster and more 
 

comfortable than it was in the past. Here is an overview of orthodontics:

  1. Patients who have problems with their bite and the way their top and bottom teeth line up against each other are good candidates for orthodontic treatment.

  2. Impressions, photos and x-rays are taken at the start of treatment to determine the course of action.

  3. Brackets are bonded to individual teeth and wires clip onto them that gently guide the teeth into position over time.

  4. Good oral hygiene habits are essential during treatment and regular visits are required for check-ups and adjustments.

 

Life Benefits:

●    Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, as there are no gaps for plaque to build up in over time.
●    Having an attractive smile will have a positive effect on your confidence.
●    Orthodontics is a long-term investment in your oral health.

●    Thanks to fixed permanent retention you can be assured that your teeth won't move after treatment is completed.

Here is what makes 6 Month Smiles so innovative...

●    Use of braces has shown to provide the most conservative and predictable final result

Six Months Smiles                                                                                             

Q: What is 6 Month Smiles

A: 6 Month Smiles™ braces are clear

Wires are usually tooth-coloured and very small

Treatment times usually fall within 4-9 months

Discomfort is minimal as teeth are gently repositioned

Cost is usually less than traditional braces

Q: How can teeth be straightened in only 6 months?

A: The 6 Month Smiles™ technique employs the latest technology and techniques in dentistry to move your teeth quickly and safely using a brace that is attached to your teeth. The key components of the treatment are the use of special nickel titanium wires and a primary focus of moving the teeth that show when you smile.

Q: 6 months sounds good, but will I still have a mouth full of metal for the whole time?

A: No! 6 Month Smiles™ dentists use tooth-coloured braces that are barely visible. The wires are usually tooth-coloured as well. These are nothing like metal braces!

Q: How are 6 Month Smiles™ more comfortable than regular braces?

A: 6 Month Smiles™ use low force to move teeth more comfortably. Many people think that the accelerated treatment means simply "tightening" regular braces to get the teeth moving, but that is not true. 6 Month Smiles™ utilizes standard orthodontic mechanics, but with an emphasis on the cosmetic appearance of your teeth rather than the position of your bite.

Q: Do 6 Month Smiles™ braces damage the teeth, roots, or gums?

A: There are no more risks of root damage or other issues than those associated with traditional orthodontics. Since the forces used with 6 Month Smiles™ braces are lighter and teeth are seldom extracted, there are actually even fewer risks involved with 6 Month Smiles™ orthodontics.

Q: Will I have to wear a retainer?

A: Yes, as with any teeth-straightening treatment a retainer is necessary to maintain the straighter position of your teeth. If you don't want to wear a removable retainer, you can have a bonded retainer placed. There are a variety of options that you can choose from according to your personal preference and situation.

Q: Would I be suitable?

A: If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you're not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults ARE candidates for 6 Month Smiles.
