What are the early signs of dental problems?
Why do I need dental check-ups?
Regular dental check-ups help detect problems to prevent bigger and more costly treatments later in time.
One should undergo dental check-ups every six months, or more often if your Leichhardt dentist recommends it.
I have damaged teeth. How can I repair them?
Dental crowns improve and protect teeth by covering them in a material that looks and feels like a real tooth. They use the root and inside of the tooth as an anchor, then attach with a special bonding agent.
Veneers enhance your smile by attaching a layer of porcelain or resin to the natural tooth, covering discoloured or stained teeth.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching is the process of lightening the colour of human teeth. Whitening is often desirable when teeth become yellowed over time for several reasons, and can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic colour of the tooth enamel.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are surgical fixtures that integrate with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis like a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor.
What are dental emergencies?
Dental emergencies are usually characterised by pain, swelling, or discomfort, and often occurs when the patient decides that they cannot help themselves.
In case of a dental emergency, contact your Leichhardt dentist immediately.
