Your smile has a lot to do with the way you feel about yourself and the way others perceive you. Cosmetic Dental procedures give you the ability to have the beautiful, healthy and confident smile you desire.
If your teeth are worn down, discoloured, chipped, stained, in the wrong position or missing, there is a procedure available for you. Below is a list of procedures that we offer at Hyde Park Dental that can help enhance your appearance and give you the confidence to smile all day long.
Veneers are thin, hand made porcelain facings crafted by expert laboratory technicians to an exacting design that covers the front of your teeth. Veneers are able to transform the appearance of stained, chipped, misaligned or odd shaped teeth, creating a natural flawless result. Being stain resistant they are able to maintain their natural look for many years. A minimal amount of tooth enamel removal is required to allow the dental veneer to fit seamlessly.
Crowning (or capping) involves the covering of the entire outer surfaces of the tooth in a material of choice, returning the tooth to its desired shape and colour, offering a strong and permanent solution. Crowning is one of the most common dental procedures used in the dental field, enabling us to solve issues such as;
- grossly decayed teeth
- fractured teeth
- teeth weakened by root canal treatment
- worn teeth
- discoloured teeth
There are different materials used to make crowns. Traditional crowns were made out of either Gold Alloys or Porcelain fused to gold alloy, however recent advances now allow us to make crowns out of full porcelain for the best aesthetic result with the same strength and function of the old metal crowns.
Our digital Cerec scanning machine and on site glazing oven also allows us to make crowns in one visit rather than the traditional two visits.
Sometimes a tooth can be so badly damaged due to decay or fractures that the only option is to extract it. In this case the gap left behind by the missing tooth may be restored by use of a dental bridge. A bridge is a row of dental crowns used in place of the missing tooth. A bridge consist of two crowns supporting a pontic (artificial tooth/teeth). The two crowns are cemented onto the two teeth either side of the gap and gives the appearance of a full set of teeth. This procedure relies heavily on having healthy strong teeth either side of the missing teeth. It is a relatively quick and easy way to restore these areas. A well placed dental bridge will help prevent surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, improve chewing and speech, and help keep your natural face shape.
Everyone wants natural, healthy looking white teeth. At Hyde Park Dental achieving this has never been simpler with our custom take home whitening kits. Our Pola Nights whitening kits are easy to use and affordable. With little to no sensitivity this bleaching system is the perfect way to getting that bright smile you have always wanted.
COSMETIC DENTAL BONDING
Cosmetic dental bonding is a reliable and affordable way to improve the appearance of chipped, stained or spaced out teeth. It involves the placement of tooth coloured reinforced resin materials directly onto your tooth with minimal if any tooth preparation. Once the resin is placed it is expertly shaped into the desired form improving the appearance of the tooth instantly.
Orthodontic treatments are offered at our rooms using two of the leading orthodontic systems, SmileFast and Invisalign. Using these leading orthodontic systems, Nick and Dan are able to correct crowding, spacing, crooked teeth and protruding teeth. For more information please see Orthodontics or contact us.
All of the above cosmetic treatment discussed are available at Hyde Park Dental. We recommend a full consultation with one of our dentists before embarking on any of these procedures to discuss which one will be best suited for you. Please contact our rooms for further information.
