This includes the restoration of decayed or damaged teeth with mercury free white fillings.

  • ROOT CANAL THERAPY

The insides of teeth have nerves that allow for feelings of temperature and pressure. Root canal therapy is required when a tooth’s nerve becomes irreversibly damaged by either tooth decay or trauma. The procedure involves removing the contents of the nerve canal and providing a bacteriological seal. The procedure is relatively simple and in the vast majority of cases it is completely painless.

  • TREATMENT OF PERIODONTIS AND GINGIVITIS

Gingivitis is inflammation of gums surrounding the teeth and when it progresses toward the deeper supporting structures of the teeth it becomes periodontitis.

Treatment depends on how far the condition has advanced and includes in chair and at home treatment. The dentist / hygienist will mechanically remove the bacterial load on the gums and allowing them to adequately heal.

We have a hygienist who specialises in treating both gingivitis and periodontitis.

  • VENEER AND LUMINEERS

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain (approximately .5mm – 1mm) that are bonded to the face of teeth to enhance their appearance. Generally this involves the removal of a thin layer of tooth to allow for the thickness of veneer.

Lumineers are a patented form of veneers that are much thinner than traditional veneers. They are made of an extra strong glass ceramic called cerinate which allows them to extremely thin: approximately .2mm. This quality allows us to construct lumineers without drilling the face of the teeth. This also means that very minimal preparation is necessary. Anaesthetic can also be avoided.
