From fillings to dental implants, our general dentistry restores your smile. We analyse your problem in detail and find a sustainable solution for you. We encourage preventative measures and regular teeth cleaning wherever possible. We also offer emergency dental care if you have severe tooth ache, swellings, lost fillings or crowns, broken dentures, a knocked out tooth, extruding teeth or pain and swelling caused by a wisdom tooth.
Veneers are wafer-thin shells of tooth-coloured material (which can be either porcelain or composite resin material). They are “cemented” to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. Many dentists use the analogy that dental veneers are for your teeth what false fingernails are for your hands. Veneers are an ideal way of treating discoloured or unsightly teeth, closing smaller gaps between front teeth, or repairing chips and crack
A dental bridge is made by putting crowns (caps) on the teeth at either side of a space, and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. This procedure can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. This is all made in the laboratory and then the pieces are cemented into place with special adhesives. A bridge can't be removed. Bridges are only possible if the teeth adjacent to the gap are strong with good bone support and if the gap is not too long. Bridges also require a serious commitment to oral hygiene. Your dentist will help you decide which the best way of replacing missing teeth is.
Dentures are worn to replace your natural teeth. They are usually made from lifelike resin teeth bonded to a plastic or metal base. You can either be fitted with a complete denture which replace all your teeth and also gives support to your cheeks and lips, or a partial denture, if you still have some of your own teeth remaining. Partial dentures can be made from acrylic (plastic) or a fine metal framework of chrome cobalt. They are usually held in place by clasps or metal clips, which fit around some of your remaining natural teeth.
Gum disease describes swelling, soreness or infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. There are two main forms of gum disease: gingivitis and periodontal disease. Gingivitis means inflammation of the gums. This is when the gums around the teeth become very red and swollen. Often the swollen gums bleed when they are brushed during cleaning. You may notice blood on your toothbrush or in the water you have rinsed your teeth with. Your gums may bleed when you are eating, leaving a metallic taste in your mouth, and your breath may smell unpleasant.
Bad breath (Halitosis) can result from poor dental health habits and may be a sign of other health problems. Bad breath can also be made worse by the types of foods you eat and other unhealthy lifestyle habits. If you don't brush and floss your teeth daily, food particles can remain in your mouth, which promotes bacterial growth between teeth, around the gums, and on the tongue. This causes bad breath. In addition, odor-causing bacteria and food particles can cause bad breath if dentures are not properly cleaned. Smoking or chewing tobacco-based products can also cause bad breath, stain teeth, reduce your ability to taste foods, and irritate the gums.

Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain good oral health in the long run. It requires a close coordination between the patient and the dentist. We encourage all our patients to take essential preventive actions. Our contribution to preventive dental care:
During a routine dental cleaning, your dentist or hygienist are removing sticky plaque and hard tartar deposits from the surfaces of your teeth above your gums.
X-rays are a very powerful tool to analyse your oral health. To do an X-ray every few years will help a dentist to detect problem areas and discover unwanted changes.
Annual Dental Plans
To have an informative plan on how to maintain your oral health can encourage beneficial behaviours and ensure regular contact with your dentist.
