Your Smile Enhances Your Image
Cosmetic dentistry includes the areas of prosthodontics and restorative dentistry.
Prosthodontics is the specialised area of dentistry that focuses on repairing or replacing missing teeth using a variety of techniques and devices. This may include removal prostheses eg full or partial dentures, or fixed prosthodontics eg crown and bridgework and dental implants. All dentists at GB Dental are highly trained in prosthodontic techniques. Additionally, we exclusively use only Australian laboratories, ensuring high quality prosthetics.
If image and quality are a priority, then visible silver fillings, broken, cracked or discoloured teeth shouldn't be part of your smile. Today, cosmetic dentistry provides many solutions to aesthetic problems and crowns (or veneers) may be the best solution for you. Crowns also provide strength and durability for weakened, endodontically treated or fractured teeth.
A crown is a hollow porcelain "cap" that fits over a specially prepared tooth and is then cemented in place and in most cases, crowns can be made in a single visit through our use of CEREC technology.
GB Dental plan, prepare and design crowns according to each individual patient case.All our crowns are manufactured from the highest quality materials, and are made only using Australian laboratories.
If you have lost a tooth, your Dentist may recommend a permanent bridge to replace it. Today's bridges provide the look and function of natural teeth. Bridges work best when there is a single missing tooth surrounded by healthy teeth. Teeth on either side of the missing tooth are prepared for a crown. The Dentist will then take an Impression of the teeth to create your new Bridge. Crowns are designed to cover the two teeth that have been prepared by the Dentist. A third crown is designed to fill in the space vacated by the missing tooth. This crown is permanently attached to the crowns on either side forming a bridge over the space where the tooth was lost.
The Bridge is designed in a laboratory to fit your bite and match the colour of the surrounding teeth. Your smile will look like you've never had a missing tooth!
We use Procera (by Nobel Biocare), Zenostar and e-Max laboratory crowns and bridges, which are all manufactured companies who have an unsurpassed records of achievement in Dental Ceramics.
Dental Veneers are tiny shells of tooth-coloured porcelain or composite resin that are bonded onto the front of your own teeth. Our dentists are all very skilled in cosmetic dentistry and will work with you to create the smile you desire.
Dental Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of stained, chipped or crooked front teeth.
We use e-Max porcelain veneers. Our Composite veneers are created using Estelite composites.
