Braces
 
Clear Braces
Invisible braces use breakthrough technology that lets you have the smile that you've always wanted without the hassle of metal braces.
 
Dental Bridges
A traditional dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic, which is usually fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding the dental bridge in place are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth. This is known as a fixed bridge. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Fixed pontics cannot be taken out of your mouth as you might do with removable partial dentures. Considerations Dental bridges can reduce your risk of gum disease, help correct some bite issues and even improve your speech. Your new tooth will appear natural, and you will be able to eat a normal, varied diet. They require a commitment to serious oral hygiene, but can last as many ten years or more. After having a dental bridge placed it is common for your teeth to be mildly sensitive to extreme temperatures for a few weeks after the treatment. In the long term, it is important to remember that the areas under the new teeth can still decay if proper oral hygiene is not followed. Resin Bonded Bridges A resin bonded option is primarily used for the front teeth. Less expensive, this option is best used when the abutment teeth on either side are healthy and don't have large fillings. The false tooth is fused to metal bands that are bonded to the abutment teeth with a resin, which is hidden from view. This type reduces the amount of preparation on the adjacent teeth.
 
Dental Crowns
 
Porcelain Crown
Porcelain teeth crowns are fabricated from different porcelain/ceramic materials. Lately, they have proven to be as strong as conventional metal options, with better aesthetics. Still, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration when choosing this type. The most important factor is your bite – the way your teeth come together, and the need to cut a lot of the tooth structure away to provide for adequate thickness of such teeth crowns.
 
Dental Implants
Teeth in a Day Procedure uses four implants, with the back implants angulated to take maximum advantage of existing bone. Special implants were developed that could support the immediate fitting of replacement teeth. With the Teeth in a Day Procedure, qualified** patients receive just four implants and a full set of new replacement teeth in just one appointment—without bone grafts! The real appeal is how quickly permanent implants can be placed so that patients can leave the same day with fixed, non-removable replacement teeth. Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch of teeth usually involved bone grafts, six or more implants, and as many as 12-18 months of treatment. That meant that a patient often would be without any teeth or with ill-fitting temporary dentures for more than a year.
 
Dentist Consultation

Hygienist Session
Our hygiene department has the most up to date methods in preventing periodontal disease. This includes periodontal screening tests and the highest technology digital x-ray system with ultra high magnification to see even the smallest areas of plaque or calculus. This x-ray system reduces the effects of x-radiation by up to 90%. Our highly trained periodontal hygienist records the measurement of gum recession and evaluation of potential bone loss early on. Each visit these things are re-evaluated. Most importantly the cleanings and scalings are performed in the most meticulous manner. All this is done in a relaxed atmosphere catering to the patients needs. We also have topical solutions to decrease sensitivity to scaling by lightly anesthetizing the gums. We have many prophy aids to further assist the patient with home care i.e. rubber tips, floss threaders, proxabrushes, fluoride treatments and denture adhesive. We also give each patient a complementary gift bag of a top of the line tooth brush, floss and sample tooth paste.
 
Implant Dentist Consultation
 
Inlay or Onlay
In cases with larger cavities or broken down areas, an inlay or onlay to cover more of the tooth's surface may be indicated. These restorations are indirect because they require two visits and fabrication by a dental laboratory. The ceramic restorations are considerably more expensive and therefore simple, one-visit composite fillings are typically used instead for small fillings. Ceramic restorations are much more durable and will not stain. Naturally speaking, the final result with ceramics is spectacular. White inlays or onlays are actually glued into the tooth and there is now a body of research that claims that because of this the tooth ends up stronger after such a procedure, less prone to problems down the road.
 
Composite Resin Inlay or Onlay
A composite resin is a tooth-coloured plastic mixture filled with glass (silicon dioxide). Composites are not only used for restoring decay, but are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the colour of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth. There are no known health risks of receiving composite fillings.
 
Root canals
Root canal treatment helps maintain oral health and keep your natural teeth. Getting oral health problems checked early – and undergoing necessary treatments like root canals – can help prevent the need for more expensive and intensive surgery later on, like dental implants.
 
Teeth Whitening
 
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
It is a scientific advanced bleaching process that lightens discolouration of enamel and dentin. It is safe, simple, effective and very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will become drastically whiter. The procedure involves covering up your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed before the application of the Zoom!™ whitening gel (containing the active ingredient hydrogen peroxide). The Zoom!™ light is used to activate the whitening gel’s active ingredient. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen penetrates the enamel and dentin, bleaching coloured substances, breaking up stains while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.
 
Veneers
 
Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured porcelain (ceramic) shells carefully crafted to bond to and cover the front of unsightly teeth. Porcelain veneers by Sydney's Dentistry by Design can be used to cover dark or yellow teeth, fill unsightly gaps, lengthen short or stubby teeth, and straighten a crooked smile. Modern technology allows us to create a very life-like appearance with translucency that mimics the light absorption of natural enamel. A more conservative treatment than a crown, the use of porcelain veneers by Sydneysiders can be a good alternative if the underlying tooth is strong and healthy. Porcelain veneers by Sydney's Dentistry by Design offer a number of benefits: Covers unsightly front teeth and can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. Close gaps between teeth. Quickly straighten crooked or misaligned teeth, a form of “instant orthodontics”. Procedure is relatively painless. Require very little invasive preparation to your teeth compared to installing a crown. Can oftentimes be cheaper and simpler alternative to a crown depending on the strength of each teeth. Ceramic will not decay and when applied professionally and cared for regularly can last for many years. Resists staining caused by age, tea, coffee or smoking.
