Crowns & Bridges

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Modern dental materials and technology have dramatically improved the appearance of dental crowns and bridges. The porcelain used in today’s crowns and bridges can be colour-matched to blend perfectly with the shade of your natural teeth. With proper placement, your dental restoration should be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Dental Bonding

If the chip in your tooth is small and located in the right place, we may be able to repair it using dental bonding. Our dentist will perform an exam to determine if dental bonding can benefit you.

Emergency Dentistry

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

If you are in pain, then you are having a dental emergency. Call us so that we can examine you, diagnose the problem, and create a treatment plan. Other signs that indicate the need for an emergency appointment include:

A pimple-like lesion on your gum
A broken or cracked tooth
A foreign object lodged between your teeth
Swelling in the gum
A broken or lost dental restoration such as a filling or a crown

Sleep Apnoea & Snoring

One of the most well-known treatments for sleep apnea is CPAP therapy which uses a machine to keep air moving through your airway while you are sleeping. While this treatment is effective, many people fail it for a variety of reasons.

Another effective treatment is an oral appliance that is worn while you sleep. This device is customised to fit your mouth and holds your airway open so that you can continue breathing while you sleep.

TMJ And Bruxism

Symptoms for TMJ disorders can vary dramatically from one person to the next and can include facial pain, neck pain, headaches, sensitive teeth, clicking or popping joints, locking jaw joints and your teeth not coming together correctly.

If you experience any of these symptoms, call our clinic, and we will be happy to book an exam to determine if you have a TMJ disorder.
