Facial Aesthetics

Facial Aesthetics

Wrinkle reduction and Derma Fillers at The Walk-In Dental Centre. It is a virtually pain free, non surgical wrinkle-reduction technique, giving you that beautifully rejuvenated wrinkle-free complexion.

It reversibly relaxes muscle tissue, which can be successfully used to combat ageing associated with gravity and sun exposure. It is usually applied in conjunction with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to the areas around the face where dermal collagen has deteriorated, and hydration has diminished, such as the lips, forehead, neck lines, eye area, and folds surrounding the nose and mouth. Wrinkle reduction, together with dermal fillers, can achieve a youthful facial appearance when deep tissue breakdown has occurred. Treatments times vary from 5-20 minutes and may need to be repeated before the desired result is achieved.

Prevention

Prevention

Is your dental check up overdue?

The Australian Dental association recommend a check up every 6 months.

What will your dental check up entail?
1. A through clinical examination to check your teeth, gums and assess the soft tissues is performed. A soft tissue assessment will ensure any oral lesions are noted and our dentist will under take an oral cancer check.
2. Dental x rays to assess for decay and review bone support which is effected in patients with periodontal disease.
3. Oral hygiene instruction and dietary advise. Lots of patients suffer from bad breath and not brushing correctly. The dentist will spend time to assist you in helping provide you with the knowledge and tools on how to improve your oral hygiene. A sugary diet plays a critical factor in causing tooth decay. Our dentist will discuss your diet to see if it is causing holes in your teeth or wear of your teeth for example.
4. Scale and polish. Most patients require their teeth cleaned every 6 months. This ensures the calculus/tartar that has built up is removed. It can help improve your gum health and make it easier for you to clean your teeth.
5. Treatment plan. Our dentist will aim to provide you with a brief overview of what is required and then discuss this further as you need to ensure you fully understand and are happy with the treatment required.

Do you remember when was your last dental check up?

Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Now you can whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home or at The Walk-in Dental Centre. These treatments can lighten discoloured teeth caused by tea coffee smoking, medication or smoking. If you want white teeth then please ask your dentist when you next attend.

You’ll notice your dazzling new smile and so will everyone else! Tooth whitening works best on yellowing teeth, but can also produce results on mottled teeth, and those with a grey/brown appearance caused by antibiotics. Dental whitening is a non invasive technique that does not in any way weaken or damage the tooth. It is one of the most simple but effective treatments available in cosmetic dentistry today.

Six things you want to know about tooth whitening:
• Teeth naturally darken with age. This can be made worse by lifestyle habits such as smoking, and drinking coffee, tea and red wine.
• Whiter teeth can make you look younger.
• Whitening does not damage the teeth.
• Tooth whitening can cause some teeth to become sensitive. This is generally mild in most people and disappears after the treatment is stopped.
• The best results are elicited from a recommended course of home whitening.
• Whitening gels only lighten the colour of the tooth, and will not affect fillings, crowns and veneers, which may need to be replaced after the teeth have been whitened.

Restorative

Restorative

CROWNS

A dental crown (cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, thus restoring it to its original shape, size, and colour. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

The tooth is gently prepared in order that the remaining tooth provides a strong base, onto which the crown is bonded. There are several types of crowns, including high strength ceramic, a combination of metal and ceramic, or a high gold alloy alone. All ceramic crowns, made of materials such as E-max, can produce near perfect aesthetic results when constructed in harmony and conjunction with our ceramist. However, we will discuss and recommend the crown that best suits your dental and aesthetic needs.

Why might I need crowns?
• To improve your smile
• To protect a tooth that has fractured
• To prevent a tooth from breaking after a root canal filling
• To protect a large filling


VENEERS

Dental veneers have increased in popularity and can be an option for obtaining the perfect smile. It is a thin covering that can be placed over your tooth. A veneer can be used for teeth that are:
• Gapped
• Discoloured
• Broken down
• Worn
• Poorly shaped/Crooked

Veneers can be made of:
Composite resin: The dentist undertakes dental bonding and bonds the composite material to your tooth. These veneers are more affordable but require maintenance.
Porcelain: These veneers are laboratory made and are longer lasting and more durable.


BRIDGES

A bridge is a fixed non-removable restoration that is used to replace missing. Teeth adjacent to a space are prepared, and the bridge is made linking the false tooth to the crowns as one unit.

This is then bonded into place such that it functions like the original teeth. There are several different types of bridges. Once we have discussed your needs and examined you, we will discuss and recommend the best options for your particular case. Dental bridges are highly durable and will last for a number of years provided you look after them and maintain a good oral hygiene and dietary program.

Bridges can be used to:
• Fill space of missing teeth
• Maintain facial shape
• Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
• Restore chewing and speaking ability
• Restore your smile
• Upgrade from a removal partial denture to a fixed dental appliance

Periodontal

Periodontal

Gum disease (periodontal disease) is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Its treatment and control is the single most important factor underpinning all aspects of dentistry. Our dentists will screen for periodontal disease and assess your gums when you attend for a dental check-up.

Gum disease is caused by excessive bacterial accumulation in the mouth, and along the gum margins, in a biological medium better known as plaque. Gum disease can be incredibly painful, and if allowed to progress, can result in destruction of the underlying bone, recession of the gums, abscesses, mobility, and the premature loss of teeth.

At The Walk-in Dental Centre our dentist will work closely with the patient, to try to decelerate and stabilise the effects of gum disease. Treatment involves the thorough removal of plaque and hard deposits, and the use of topical antimicrobials in specific cases. We support patients in developing a regular maintenance programme, both at home, and in conjunction with our dentist.

Root Canal

Root Canal Treatment (RCT)

Have you got severe toothache or a dental abscess? If you might need root canal therapy or root canal treatment (RCT). This is a dental procedure used to retain a tooth with an irreversibly damaged nerve, so that a tooth can be saved and remain functional in the mouth.

Nerve damage is usually caused by bacterial invasion of the pulp due to decay, resulting in an infection that spreads through the root canal system of the tooth, eventually leading to an abscess. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal, then clean and fill the root canal system. Once all the infection has cleared, the tooth is permanently restored, and may require a crown to provide extra strength to the weak remaining tooth structure. This tooth is then examined and reviewed at regular check ups to ensure its integrity is intact.

Fillings

Fillings

Do you have sensitivity? Can you feel a hole? If so then you might need a filling so a checkup is always a good place to start. Fillings can be white or grey in colour and are typically used if you have a hole or cavity in your tooth or teeth. The decay is cleared and the hole sealed to prevent the cavity getting bigger.

Composite (Tooth coloured) Fillings

Technological advances have rendered cosmetic white fillings as strong and reliable as the traditional mercury amalgam fillings. White fillings are available in a variety of shades in order to ensure that the colour of the filling matches the shade of the tooth. This provides a more natural appearance. Composite can also be used to build up and re-contour teeth, as well as change their shape and close selective spacing, enhancing the overall form and aesthetics of the mouth.

Amalgam (Silver) Fillings

Amalgam fillings are silver coloured. They are made by combining mercury and a silver alloy. Amalgam is long lasting, hard wearing and economical to use. This kind of filling is normally used on the back ‘chewing’ teeth.
