Tooth whitening is becoming a fast popular method to achieve that dazzling smile you have always wanted. There are two main methods to whiten your teeth: in-chair whitening and take-home whitening. Both of these methods are effective and produce the same result despite which path you choose to whiten your teeth. In-chair whitening is a great procedure for patients wishing for a whiter smile fast. Smile Creation uses Pola-Office+; a popular, safe and effective treatment for tooth whitening. Patients are able to see results in the chair after an hour. Take-home whitening is an effective alternative for those who are on a budget and are not in a hurry to achieve their brilliant smile. Take-home whitening is able to be completed in the comfort of your without the compromise of the end result.
With the help of dental bonding – a procedure where white fillings are used to reshape the teeth and to cover any stains on the teeth which cannot be removed with a polish .Dental bonding is used to cover exposed roots, to close the gaps between the teeth and to repair any defects in the teeth. It requires minimal preparation on the tooth and is a painless and quick procedure.
At Smile Creation, we do not use the amalgam – or silver – fillings to repair broken or decayed teeth. We are able to use modern technology in many aspects of our practice, including the use of white – or resin – fillings. We match the resin filling material to the color of your existing tooth to ensure a flawless finish with no silver in sight! We are also able to provide the option of replacing old amalgam fillings with new resin coloured filling material, so if you are concerned about the look of your old and worn fillings, contact Smile Creation and organise a consultation today.
If you are thinking of creating an ideal smile, porcelain veneers may be an investment worth considering. Porcelain veneers are custom made to suit your smile and are created out of a thin layer of porcelain that are cemented snugly around your existing tooth. They can help conceal broken or chipped teeth, discoloration or old existing filling that can begin to look unattractive over time. They are also great if you wish to close gaps or the shape or size of your existing teeth. Speak to one of our experienced dentists today about improving the look of your smile!
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are a great option to protect heavily filled teeth that may begin to crack or crumble due to wear and heavy use, as well as teeth that have completed root canal therapy. Bridges are also a good option to fill one space in the mouth as well as to protect the teeth either side of the gap. By filling the space, this helps create an even bite and releases pressure off other teeth when chewing so your natural teeth will last longer. Crowns and bridges also improve the aesthetic look of teeth and are custom made and come in a range of color shades to ensure that the crown or bridge match the adjacent teeth and create a flawless smile. Speak to one of our dentists today to see if your smile can be improved with a crown or bridge.
Orthodontic Treatment (Braces)
Orthodontic treatment, or braces, are an effective method to improve your smile if you have crowding, overlapping of teeth or spaces between teeth. Length of orthodontic treatment varies for each person, to ensure individual dental needs are met and to achieve the best result for the patient.
Although braces typically are made in stainless steel and are silver in colour, new technology provides Smile Creation with the option of ceramic braces, which are opaque/ white in colour and are more concealed than standard braces. We will also be introducing “Invisalign” to our practice in the near future so organise a consult today with one of our dentists to discuss which method of treatment would best suit the needs of your smile.
