Like we said, we offer all the dental treatments you need to keep your teeth healthy, strong, and looking amazing. From routine check ups and fillings to cosmetic procedures and through to full restorative needs, like crowns, bridges, and dental implants — no matter the need, your New Farm dentist can help.
Cosmetic dentistry is the key to a sparkling, full smile. We can offer small cosmetic enhancements in the form of teeth whitening, or more significant improvements by straightening your teeth with our invisible QD Active Aligners. Or, we can fill in the gaps in your smile using restorative techniques like veneers, crowns, and bridges.
Our QD Active Aligners are the new alternative to traditional braces. These clear, teeth-straightening aligners work by slowly moving your teeth into the perfect position. We can’t just pop these aligners over your teeth for instant straightening though. Unfortunate, we know. So, these aligners gradually get closer and closer to your ideal teeth’s position until they’re there. These are an excellent alternative to traditional braces as they’re clear, removable, and much, much comfier than braces.
Missing or chipped teeth can chip away at your self esteem, make you feel reluctant to smile, and cause massive discomfort while eating and sometimes even drinking. We don’t take the role of restoring your teeth lightly. So, we’ll use a combination of dental implants, crowns, bridges, and veneers to create a new set of teeth that are healthy, strong, and sturdy, but look good too. Ask your New Farm dentist how we can support your teeth.
Having wisdom teeth trouble? That tightness in your teeth, pressure on your gums, and the general anxiety that comes with growing wisdom teeth can be stressful and unpleasant. Your New Farm dentist will take an X-ray right here in our clinic. Once we’ve worked out exactly where your wisdom teeth are and how they’re travelling, we’ll create a game plan. This may be a procedure where we remove your wisdom teeth using local anaesthetic. Where that’s not possible, we’ll refer you to one of the amazing specialists within our network.
A dental bridge is used to join an artificial tooth or teeth to existing teeth in the mouth. These can also be joined to a dental implant. Dental bridges are often used in restorative dentistry to bridge gaps in your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.
The rule of thumb is that you should visit us every six months. However, if you’re pretty good with your oral hygiene, your teeth are in good condition and you’ve seldom or rarely had cavities in your teeth, then you can probably get away with visiting us once a year or so.
In saying that, if you commonly have dental problems and require relatively regular treatments, you may benefit from visiting us more frequently — say every three to four months.
Dental implants are surgical components that are placed into your jawbone to create a really solid foundation and root for an artificial tooth. Bone grows over the screw part of the dental implant eventually, helping it hold better in the bone. An artificial tooth or crown is then positioned over the implant.
A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth to create a better sized tooth. By doing this to each necessary tooth, we create a fuller set of teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are surgically planted into your skull and jawbone, so it’s important these don’t need to be updated or upgraded. So, implants are built to last. These have a lifespan from 25 years to a lifetime.
