At The Parade Dental Practice, our caring team always aim to provide you with a pleasant dental experience. We offer a diverse range of general and cosmetic treatments, with special payment plans available.
Our dental hygienists play an important role in providing dental health care. They are mainly concerned with assessing your gum's health, advising on the correct home care and applying preventive materials to your teeth and gums.
You will benefit from professional cleaning, scaling and polishing, while receiving expert advice about plaque fighting techniques. Our dental hygienists can also advise you on your diet and how to prevent dental decay.
These are false teeth that replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth is known as a 'pontic' and is fused between two crowns. This serves as an anchor by attaching to the teeth on each side of the false tooth, thereby bridging them together.
We can provide fillings that are matched to your own teeth colour, restoring the tooth after decay. These are known as 'composite fillings'.
We can also replace any amalgam fillings with composite ones for cosmetic reasons.
Sometimes referred to as 'caps' crowns are artificail restorations which are placed over prepared teeth to give it strength, natural shape and look. This is a permanent solution to badly damaged or broken teeth. Alternatively, patients have these fitted to improve the overall appearance of their teeth.
Another way to replace missing teeth is in the form of dentures.
These can be in the form of partial dentures (to replace a few teeth) or complete dentures (to replace upeer and/or lower dentures).
These are a natural and healthy way of improving your smile, usually carried out on the top teeth.
Veneers are a bit like false fingernails that are bonded to your existing teeth, providing a cosmetic solution for stained or chipped teeth.
Tooth whitening treatments:
If your teeth have become discoloured over time, it is reversible. We offer a deep bleaching tooth whitening method by Enlighten, which enhances the colour of your teeth.
This involves a two week home treatment followed by a one hour appointment with your dentist.
Usually made from titanium, an implant is a small, screw-shaped attachment that is inserted into the jawbone to take the place of a missing tooth. Once the bone has attached firmly to the implant (which can take approximately three months), the implant can look, feel and perform just like a natural tooth. It is also possible to use multiple implants to support dentures or a bridge.
We may recommend an intravenous or IV sedation for some treatments. This is an injection administered by our anaesthetists, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.
