Dental implants are generally the best way to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. Implants are biocompatible titanium fixtures that mimic the tooth root. These are placed in the jawbone and fully integrate over three months to form a solid foundation on which to place a prosthetic tooth (an implant crown).
Porcelain & Composite Veneers
Veneers are cosmetic covers for the front teeth to improve the colour, size, shape or texture of the teeth. They can also be used to fix chips or close gaps. They are bonded onto the teeth to create beautiful and attractive smiles. Dentists use the analogy that veneers are to teeth to what false fingernails are to the hands.
At Smile Style Dental, we understand that a bright, white smile can play a larger role in peoples’ overall appearance and confidence. For this reason we offer two alternative treatments; one hour in the dental chair, or a take home whitening kit. Please speak to any one of our friendly staff to discuss the best options for you.
A virtually invisible and hygienic treatment, the Invisalign System uses an innovative approach to effectively straighten your teeth. Invisalign treatment uses our unique SMARTForce Technology to create a series of custom-made removable aligners for you and only you. All you have to do is to wear these aligners, made of a virtually invisible plastic, over your teeth to gradually move them to the ideal position.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns, also referred to as a ‘cap’, covers the whole tooth for strength & protection. This increases the lifespan of a tooth that has been heavily filled or weakened. Crowns are matched to the colour and size of your own teeth and are either entirely made from reinforced porcelain, porcelain with metal inside, or a gold alloy. Your dentist will discuss which type is recommended for your particular tooth.
A white/tooth coloured filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then refilled.
There are different types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Typically, your filling would be either composite resin or porcelain, the choice depends on your tooth strength. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth.
