Veneers are usually made out of thin porcelain or composite resin shells that are used to change the length, shade and even the feel of your teeth, while removing minimal tooth structure. They help to hide the discrepancies of natural teeth such as discolouration, wear and tear, unevenness and chipping. Veneers can also improve the visual appearance of your teeth and smile. Porcelain is usually preferred over composite resin as it is stronger and more natural.
Braces are used to move and straighten teeth in order to help patients to improve function, oral hygiene and appearance of the teeth and face. Dental Extractions will be indicated if patients wish to change their facial profile or if the teeth in the jaw are crowded due to the larger teeth to jaw size .
Braces can be done using brackets (metal or ceramic) and wire, or removable customised clear plastic trays (Invisalign). The duration of the treatment average between 1.5 to 3 years approximately depending on complexity of the case.
Discoloured teeth can be developmental or developed over time (I.e Loss of Enamel, Instrinsic Staining, Extrinsic Staining). Teeth Whitening is a conservative, fast and easy way to give you a natural smile with whiter teeth. Teeth Whitening carries very little risk aside from occasional gum irritation and transient tooth sensitivity, which will usually disappear within a few days after treatment has ended.
