Veneers Christchurch are thin laminates that are semi-translucent tooth-coloured shells. They are shaped in such a way that they bond to the front of your teeth perfectly. If your teeth are strong and healthy, veneers can be used instead of a dental crown. Dental veneers greatly improve your smile and are the best aesthetic solution if you want to avoid other complex dental procedures.
Veneers can be used to address spaces between your teeth. They are also used if you have broken or chipped teeth and permanently stained teeth. Porcelain veneers involve removal of a small amount of tooth surface whereas direct laminate veneers are directly applied to your tooth and then polished to get the desired look. Your dentist will examine you and advise the best aesthetic solution for you. When proper oral hygiene is followed, veneers last for many years.

PARTIAL DENTURES AND FULL DENTURES CHRISTCHURCH
Our Full Dentures Christchurch will help you get your smile back. They will also help you eat foods that you enjoy and give you back your confidence. Dentures replace your missing teeth, and are supported by your gum tissues. Depending on the condition of your teeth and your oral hygiene, your dentist will advise partial dentures or full dentures. In the past, dentures were removable but newer technologies have ensured that dentures are fixed in place with dental implants. Further, our dentures cover only the minimum required space. This helps you with much better taste while you eat.
Our dentures are customised to fit only your mouth and they will take the natural appearance of your original teeth. Please remember that your mouth keeps changing its shape as time progresses. Therefore, you will need to get your dentures aligned from time to time. Your dentist will be able to do this for you, and this can be normally completed in one visit. Dentures will also need to be replaced after every 8-10 years in order to ensure that they are correctly fitting you.
DENTAL IMPLANTS CHRISTCHURCH
When you have lost a tooth, it leads to multiple practical problems in your daily life. An effective option to tackle this is using a dental implant to safely and successfully replace your lost tooth. Dental Implants Christchurch are also effective for more than one tooth. Dental implants are safe, durable and last a long time.
The procedure to get a dental implant involves two steps. In the first step, a replacement root is fitted and this is then left to fuse with your jaw bone for a few weeks. The replacement root is made up of titanium or a titanium alloy. In the second step, a dental crown is fitted to the implant. They are suitable for both front as well as back teeth. Dental implants are also used to hold dentures in place.
When you visit our dental surgery with a missing tooth, your dentist will examine you and advise whether dental implants are a viable option for you. The entire treatment plan lasts many weeks to allow for appropriate adaptation of the implants and will require multiple trips to your dentist.
INLAYS AND ONLAYS CHRISTCHURCH
Inlays And Onlays Christchurch are a type of tooth coloured fillings that bond to the structure of the tooth and strengthen the tooth. They are also available in different materials such as metals and resin. Our dentists recommend inlays or onlays when a large portion of the tooth is damaged and requires a filling. This additional material provides the necessary support for an effective dental filling.
Depending on your preference of material and based on your interaction with the dentist, this will be fabricated in a dental laboratory. We work with some of the most competent laboratories who will work to get the best fit for you. Your dentist will require you to visit the dental surgery two or three times to complete a successful treatment.
DENTAL EXAMINATION WITH X-RAYS CHRISTCHURCH
You want to maintain healthy teeth as this is important for your dental health and overall general health. A Dental Examination With X-rays Christchurch is a good start to determine the health of your teeth, gums and mouth. Finding and fixing any decay in your teeth will save you a lot of pain later. Our dentists will undertake a gentle examination of your mouth and study the state of your teeth and gums. Each step will be undertaken in a step by step manner.
Our dentists will then use x-rays to assist them with views of your jaw, teeth, sinus, nasal areas and jaw joints. We also have an intra-oral camera that will show you the state of your mouth and teeth on a screen. Our dentists will then check for underlying problems such as impacted teeth, bone problems, joint disorders, cysts, undesired growth (tumours) and fractures. If you have any concern with respect to an existing filling that you have, please let your dentist know.
TOOTH COLOUR RESTORATION CHRISTCHURCH
There are many types of dental fillings available in the market today. In earlier days, traditional silver coloured amalgam fillings were used. However, white dental fillings are in common use now and this is mainly for aesthetic reasons. The main advantage of white fillings is that they are virtually identical to the colour of the natural tooth.
With advancement in technology, white dental fillings can be completed in one visit itself. The materials used in white fillings have an aesthetic appeal and also strengthen your tooth. If you have any question regarding our Tooth Colour Restoration Christchurch, please talk to our dentists.
TOOTH EXTRACTIONS CHRISTCHURCH
Tooth Extractions Christchurch involves removing a tooth from your mouth. Depending on your condition, it could also involve removing more teeth from your mouth. There are many reasons for extraction of a tooth. Some of the common reasons are progressive gum disease, decay of your tooth, broken tooth, crowded teeth and issues with your wisdom teeth.
Our dentists come across many situations where patients are hesitant to have their tooth extracted. Depending on your case, alternative treatments could be available. If your tooth issue is identified early enough, your dentist will recommend a root canal treatment instead of an extraction. Whatever be the underlying condition, it pays to visit your dentist early for an early diagnosis and a treatment plan.
