Porcelain Veneers consist of a layer of composite or dental porcelain material placed over the front surfaces of teeth to replicate a natural look of teeth. They act as a shell that covers the external layer of your teeth to improve appearance or to defend the tooth’s surface from impairment. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
Implants are a great choice if you are missing one or more than teeth. Missing teeth can drastically affect your appearance but dental implants can prevent this. Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed into the gum line so that replacement teeth can be supported providing a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Crowns Sometimes known as ‘caps’.
Crowns are permanently fixed onto existing teeth or implants for restorations either cosmetic, to strengthen fractured teeth or act as a replacement for large fillings. Porcelain crowns are matched to the natural colour of your teeth so they blend in perfectly.
Bridges are primarily used to replace one or more missing teeth. Like crowns, bridges are a great choice because unlike a partial denture they are permanently cemented in place and can be colour matched to the colour of existing teeth.
Your smile is important. It’s one of the first things you notice when you meet someone. Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the colour of your teeth can be caused by such factors as the food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda).
Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your natural white smile is our priority, you’ll work with the best dentist in the Canberra area to bring your smile back to its wonderful vibrance!
