Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

We are happy to answer questions about our services and procedures.

These are a selection of some common questions that patients have. If your question isn't answered here, please contact our office. It's important to us that our patients understand their dental care.

Cleanings & Examinations

For most patients, we recommend twice-yearly visits for cleans and exams. If you are currently being treated for a particular concern, we may recommend that you visit us more often. 

 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

We offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services such as veneers, porcelain crowns, bonding using tooth-coloured composite and even Invisalign.

All our of dentistry is done with an eye toward aesthetics. We know that it's important that your teeth are both healthy and attractive.

Crowns & Bridges

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Modern dental materials and technology have dramatically improved the appearance of dental crowns and bridges. The porcelain used in today’s crowns and bridges can be colour-matched to blend perfectly with the shade of your natural teeth. With proper placement, your dental restoration should be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Paediatric Dentistry

We know that convenience is important for today’s busy families. That is why we offer dentistry for the whole family including your children. We begin seeing kids at a young age to make sure they have a healthy dental foundation.

Sleep Apnoea & Snoring

One of the most well-known treatments for sleep apnea is CPAP therapy which uses a machine to keep air moving through your airway while you are sleeping. While this treatment is effective, many people fail it for a variety of reasons.

Another effective treatment is an oral appliance that is worn while you sleep. This device is customised to fit your mouth and holds your airway open so that you can continue breathing while you sleep.

Teeth Whitening

Whitening products available for purchase in shoppes are designed to be "one size fits all" which often translates to "one size fits none".

The strength of the whitening product is much lower than what you can get in a professional kit, meaning that you must use the product for a longer period of time and are still unlikely to get the results you can find in a professional product. Additionally, your results are not being monitored by the dentist you know and trust. 

TMJ & Bruxism

While teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is very common among adults, it can cause serious damage to your teeth and jaw joints. If you wake up with sore muscles or you have noticed that you clench or grind your teeth, we can make a night guard to help protect your teeth.
