Discoloured, chipped or cracked teeth can benefit from a veneer. A thin layer of the tooth surface is shaved off. A veneer is made to fit perfectly, protecting the tooth underneath.
Before applying tooth whitening gel …
… the gums need to be protected.
A potective barrier is applied and hardened using a bright light. The whitening gel is then applied …
… and activated using a bright light. The gel will stay on the teeth for some time. This is then washed away and the barrier removed. Leaving bright, white teeth.
One of the methods for whitening teeth uses a ‘tray’. First of all, impressions are taken …
… from which a study model is made. This is painted with a special material …
… which increases the thickness of the tooth area. When the tray is prepared, a small pocket is produced.
The whitening solution occupies this pocket …
… ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces …
… and that no damage is done to the soft gums.
Tooth Jewellery is ‘stuck’ to the tooth. The glue is hardened using a bright light. Jewellery may be removed without damage.
A gap in the front teeth (Diastema) can appear unsightly.
Tubes are placed over the two teeth … … and filled with Composite material.
This builds up the teeth, closing the gap. The material is hardened with a bright light.
The damaged tooth is prepared. A crown with a metal base and porcelain coating is made. The crown is fixed in place. Under certain lighting, the metal base can sometimes be seen.
Over time the gum can recede away from the crown …… this is known as the crown margin. The old crown can be removed … … and a new, deeper crown fitted to cover this area.
