Teeth Whitening:
Each of your teeth is made up of an inner dentin layer and a hard outer enamel layer, which protects the teeth. Tooth stains occur because foreign material (food, coffee, cigarette smoke, etc.) accumulates to form a pellicle film over the enamel layer. As this pellicle layer sits on your teeth for years and years, the foreign material gets into the enamel.

The enamel layer is made up of hydroxyapatite crystals, which form microscopic hexagonal “rods.” As the enamel is porous, the staining agents work their way down into the tooth.

Whitening can be achieved in two ways : In Bytes of Northcote OR a with a Take Home Whitening KIT.

If you want to have a whiter or brighter smile you can ask our friendly dentists about the whitening procedures.

Teeth Straightening:
Perfect set of teeth don’t just improve our physical beauty but also offer better health. Irregularities in the tooth structure can lead to interference while talking or eating. Moreover, it becomes extremely difficult to clean crooked teeth which might lead to germ and plaque build-up. There are a variety of teeth straightening methods that are used to significantly enhance the physical beauty of an individual. Here are a few successful options for adults:

Veneers:
Dental Veneers (also called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are thin, custom-made porcelain shells crafted of tooth-coloured materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their colour, shape, size or length. They’re made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by the dentist.

Veneers are routinely used for:

  • 1. Chipped teeth
  • 2. Teeth that are discoloured
  • 3. Teeth that are worn down
  • 4. Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped
  • 5. Teeth with gaps between them

 

Implants:
A dental implant is a device that is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth or missing teeth. Dental implants are used to support natural looking teeth and enable patients who are missing some or all of their natural teeth to smile, speak with confidence and chew their food more comfortably.

Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Implants are constructed from materials that are compatible with the tissues of the body. The most common type of dental implant that is placed into the jaw bone is the threaded titanium cylinder.

Dental implants are also available as non-threaded, non-tapered cylinders and as non-threaded, tapered cylinders. The type of implant used is decided upon by the surgeon and depends on the location in the jaw that the implant is needed, and the forces that the implant will encounter.
