Professional teeth whitening is significantly more effective, and generally safer, than any over the counter regimen. It is important that dental and overall health is taken into consideration, upon consultation with a professional dentist, before proceeding with treatment.
To enhance or change aesthetic appearance, dental veneers are thin custom-made shells, which cover the teeth. Often providing a brand new look to the smile, the shape, size and color of the teeth are changed in this process.
FILLINGS AND INLAYS/ONLAYS
Dental cavities are treated using fillings, which can be made from a number of materials, such as gold, porcelain or synthetic materials. Inlays/Onlays are fillings often used, when teeth are too damaged to be treated with regular fillings.
Whether to secure dental bridges, protect and restore weakened or broken teeth, or enhance cosmetic appearance, crowns maybe temporary or permanent, and in a variety of materials. Costs and durability of crowns are determined by the material, such as ceramic, acrylic, resin, stainless steel, porcelain and metals, including gold, platinum or base-metal alloys.

Tooth extractions are performed for a variety of reasons. This may be necessary in preparation for realignment/braces or when a tooth cannot be saved, such as with severe tooth decay or gum disease, and when fracture lines appear in teeth.
Dentures, known as ‘false teeth’, are removable and can be partial or full, depending on the number of teeth remaining that are still in good condition. They can be made to look like original teeth.
Where a tooth is missing, a dental implant replaces the tooth roots and provides the foundation for replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants provide more convenience, eliminate the need for adhesives, and are not removable. This allows for better speech, comfort while eating and better oral health.
Gingivitis can be treated easily, if managed in a timely manner. Periodontitis causes irreversible damage to the tooth or gums, due to infection, which, in turn, damages the tissue and bone holding teeth in place. Periodontitis, in its early stages, is treated with a professional dental cleaning, where plaque and tartar are removed from the tooth. If the disease has progressed, scaling and planning (deep cleaning under local anesthesia) is required. For more acute conditions, various surgical options are available, e.g. flap/pocket reduction surgery, bone grafts, soft tissue grafts, bone surgery and guided tissue regeneration.
