improvement in your teeth and smile can give you a new lease
have decided to make a choice that transformed their lives forever!
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.
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.
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 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.
