An improvement in your teeth and smile can give you a new lease of life!

These patients have decided to make a choice that transformed their lives forever!

Porcelain veneers
Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain which can be used to do minor correction of shape and colour of teeth. The procedure is relatively painless and very quick. Only a minor degree of tooth preparation is required and once they have been produced the new veneers are simply bonded on to the outer surface of the tooth. Using modern technology veneers can now be produced within a space of 2-3 hours from the time you walk into our dental office.

Cosmetic crowns
Crowns, also known as “caps”, are essentially similar to veneers but involve preparing all tooth surfaces and not just the front surface. They are usually made of porcelain with an underlying layer of metal for support. The metal however tends to show through leading to discolouration at the gum margin. Advances in porcelain technology have created a new generation of strong crowns without the underlying metal. These all-porcelain crowns is the preferred choice for rebuilding our front teeth.

Cosmetic Tooth Recontouring
Tooth reshaping involves minor modification of just the outermost surface (the “enamel”) of the tooth. Hence this process is commonly known as “enameloplasty”. Enameloplasty is simple & easy and most importantly a pain free method of making minor corrections to the shape of your tooth. There is virtually no “downtime” as no injections are required. These minor changes bring about a significant increase in the overall appearance and smile.

Dental implants
Dental implants are new teeth which are supported by artificial titanium roots (“implants”) embedded in the jaw. Implants are the closest replacement to natural teeth that is currently available. The procedure involves 2 stages. In the 1st stage a minor surgical procedure is carried out to place the new titanium root. The 2nd stage is done after a 3-month healing period. Porcelain crowns or bridges are attached to the underlying implant/s. During the healing period you will not have to go without teeth.
