Cosmetic Dentistry

Smile enhancement can have dramatic effects on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. With modern advances in dentistry, cosmetic procedures can range from a basic colour correction to replacing missing teeth and everything in between.

  • Cosmetic Dental FillingsOpen or Close

    Dentists no longer need to rely on unsightly metals (Amalgam Dental fillings) to replace tooth structure lost to decay, but use high density, state-of-the-art plastic (composite resins) and porcelain materials instead. These materials more naturally mimic the look, feel, and function of natural teeth and actually bond directly to the remaining enamel and dentin.

    This means that the new dental fillings preserve more of the natural tooth so less repair work is necessary immediately and in the future. These modern dental filling materials are also more natural in appearance; it’s almost impossible to tell that your tooth has a dental filling.





  • Cosmetic Teeth BondingOpen or Close

    Bonding is a popular treatment option because it provides a successful attachment between the dental filling material and the tooth’s original enamel and dentin. It looks like the original tooth and functions like it as well. Direct dental composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner, where little or no tooth reduction is needed. Direct dental bonding, in the hands of a skilled operator, is less costly than porcelain veneers and crowns and can be long-lasting with proper maintenance.

    Tooth bonding is used in several different ways, but is probably most useful for repairing chipped teeth. Bonding materials (high-density, modern plastics called composite resin) and porcelain—are more natural in colour and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there ever was a broken tooth.


  • Porcelain Dental VeneersOpen or Close

    Porcelain dental veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or colour. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth.

    Smile improvement using Porcelain dental Veneers

    To apply a dental veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed. This is essential as it creates room for the porcelain veneer to fit within the mouth and most accurately restore natural tooth function while creating an even better appearance than the original tooth.





  • Dental Porcelain CrownsOpen or Close

    Dental porcelain can be sculpted to closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel, while providing desirable strength and resilience. Dental Porcelain crowns are an excellent choice when recreating the form and function of a damaged tooth, because a crown basically replaces the entire external portion of the tooth down to the gum level. Crowns are not limited to simply replacing the original tooth, but can be designed to create an even better esthetic appearance.

    Porcelain dental crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.

Implant Dentistry

Why replace missing teeth ?

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. In addition to these serious issues, tooth loss also causes bone loss. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it shrinks from lack of stimulation. Not only does losing teeth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

Why choose dental implants ?

Dental bridges and dentures address the short-term cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do nothing to stop bone loss. Crown & bridge dentistry requires grinding down healthy teeth leaving them at much greater risk for cavities and tooth failure. Bridges do not stop bone loss. Dentures become uncomfortable and unstable over time as the jawbone shrinks causing eating and speech problems.



Dental Implants-The best option to replace a missing tooth

With dental implants, healthy teeth are not compromised. Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss. Leading dental organizations recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement. Dental implants are lightweight, durable, biocompatible and made from titanium. They bond with healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime. However they are not the simplest option.

Placing an artificial material in ones jaw bone successfully requires :

A) Exemplenary hygiene and sterilization standards-. All measures are taken to replicate the sterile environment of a medical operation theatre (OT) of a hospital.

B) Extensive treatment planning- Dental Implant placement involves planning not only the size and location of the dental implant but also the height, width and density of the bone. The proximity of adjacent vital structures like the Maxillary sinus, Nerves and Blood vessels, Adjacent tooth roots, Base of the mandible etc need to be carefully assessed. Dental Implant treatment planning involves study of Models of the teeth and jaws, Diagnostic mock set ups, Intra oral and extra oral calibrated X-rays and in many cases even CT scans of the skull.
C) Undertaking complex adjunct procedures like the Indirect Sinus Lift, Direct Sinus Lift, Bone Graft procedures involving membrane placements, Block grafts, Ridge Augmentation, without which, in many instances the positioning of the Dental Implant and consequently the success, may have to be compromised.

D) Use of State of the art materials and equipment, having an excellent track record over a long period of time. Presently this clinic uses the Biohorizon Dental Implant systems (USA).
Our Specialist has been trained in Implant dentistry by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry - 300 credit hours Maxi Course and has undertaken a one week intensive training in Advanced Implantology.
Having started our Dental implant practice in 2006, we have, to date, successfully placed more than 350 implants in patients requiring a wide variety of complex adjunct procedures.

Orthodontic Braces Treatment

WHY YOU SHOULD GET ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT

Everyone wants a great smile, and your orthodontist is a specialist in making your smile the best it can be. Straight teeth not only look good, they also give you a good bite. Your upper and lower teeth fit together the way they should, so it's easier to bite, chew and speak.
A great smile helps you feel better and more confident. It can literally change how people see you – at work and in your personal life.
A healthy bite and good looking smile is as important at age 60 as it is at age 16. Even though adults are no longer growing, they can also enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age.

A variety of orthodontic “appliances” are available today, thanks to on-going research in orthodontics. Options include traditional metal braces, tooth-colored braces, braces that go behind the teeth, clear aligners and other devices, as appropriate.


If you recognize any of these signs or concerns in your child or yourself, it might be time to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening : The ZOOM way !!!

Zoom is a bleaching process widely used around the world to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth.

The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – said to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.

The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover the lips and gums, leaving the teeth exposed. The dentist or dental assistant then applies the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. The gel is applied for three or four 15-minute sessions of light activation.
Sensitivity during and after treatment may occur in some people. But this is temporary and always dissipates.

Minor Oral Surgery

Minor oral surgical procedures such as Surgical extractions of fractured teeth, of impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth, Gingivectomey, Apicoectomy, Flap surgery, Socket preservation and Surgical exposure of unerupted teeth are routinely carried out by experienced specialists.
