If you are looking for a dentist in Joondalup, 1300 Great Smile has you covered. We offer a full menu of dental services such as emergency dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, dentures, dental implants, porcelain veneers and teeth whitening. Here is a guide to some procedures that can bring back your great smile.
Dentures are full replacement sets of teeth. They are used when one’s dental health is so compromised that there is no other choice. They are a fast way to have a perfect smile but they have their limitations, too. Standard denture wearers complain that the bottom teeth “float” and the top teeth cover their palates. But they are still the best option for those who can’t afford or tolerate dental implants.
Dental implants are the “royalty” tooth replacement. A titanium “root” is implanted into the jaw. After the implant has had time to fully integrate into the jawbone, a replacement crown or “tooth” is then inserted into the implant.
For a full set of teeth, there are options where a full bridge can be placed into 2-4 implants. This is the closest you will get to having real teeth if you have a number of missing teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin strips of tooth-coloured porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. They are a great solution for discoloured, chipped or mildly broken teeth. They can be a great cosmetic solution for those who have good tooth structure but want to change the appearance of their teeth.
Crowns are put over a tooth to restore their shape and function. They are commonly used over root canals. They are long-lasting but are the most time-consuming of cosmetic restorations.
Teeth whitening or “bleaching” is just what it sounds like. Stains are bleached off of the teeth. Smokers and heavy coffee drinkers often opt for this treatment to keep their teeth white.
