At Lakeside Dental we offer the most modern and advanced techniques to ensure that your smile is always shining bright! To help make you smile we offer the following cosmetic treatments:
Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic Porcelain Veneers are a great way to dramatically and permanently improve the appearance, shape and colour of your teeth. They are usually used if you are looking to make significant changes to the colour, shape or position of your teeth. Veneers are made up of a very thin layer of tooth-coloured porcelain bonded over your own natural tooth to improve its aesthetics or to protect its damaged surface. Taking care of them is much like taking care of your teeth, including regular brushing, flossing and periodic dental appointments.
A Dental Crown is an artificial tooth that fits over the remaining part of a prepared tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A Crown is sometimes known as a ‘Cap’. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. They can be with metal free dental porcelain or a combination of both materials depending on the requirements of the restoration.
Dental Bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more porcelain crowned teeth on either side of the gap. Unlike removable dentures, a Dental Bridge is fixed in place as is anchored to the teeth at one, or both sides of a gap. They’re an alternative to dental implants for patients who don’t want to have surgery.
Dentures are removable false teeth that can be constructed using acrylic, or a combination of acrylic and metal. At Lakeside Dental we will discuss the various options and individual treatments with you at a personal consultation.
We can use white or natural coloured composite dental materials to build up worn, cracked or damaged and decayed teeth. Composites are the materials that we use to fill cavities. Repairs made with composites can look natural and improve the look and the health of your teeth. To discuss any of these cosmetic treatments please contact us on 047 81032.
