What We Do

We have tried to give you a summary of what we do. It is by far not an exhaustive list. At your first appointment we will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision on any treatment plan or plans that we may suggest.

Initial Oral Examination

Oral Exam

Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, and diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which may include a panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. We are committed to empowering you with knowledge and giving you the tools to change your perception of Oral Health.

Scaling

It is important to have your teeth professionally cleaned, at least once every 6 months, to make sure our mouth is the healthiest. More frequent cleanings, dental x-rays and examinations may be necessary during the treatment of dental and other oral disorders. Periodontal disease sometime referred to as gum disease is the most common disease on the planet. Our team working with a Periodontist can tackle what may seem a lost cause.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic or Aesthetic dentistry is a term that applies to dental procedures that help to create a pleasing appearance and restore your smile. These include White filling, Veneers, Crowns, Implants and Teeth Whitening to mention a few. It is an area of dentistry where attention to detail comes in to play. We are dedicated to go the extra mile to give you the smile that you always wanted and deserve.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.

Cosmetic Fillings

Cosmetic Fillings

Tooth-coloured fillings are made from durable plastics called composite resins. Similar in colour and texture to natural teeth, the fillings are less noticeable, and much more attractive, than other types of fillings.

Implants

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures. We work closely with Implantologists to achieve stunning results.

Veneers

Veneers

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic (composite) cemented over the front of your teeth to change their colour or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.

Whitening

WhiteningWhiteningWhitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discoloured teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.

Fissure Sealants

Dental sealants are a dental treatment consisting of applying a plastic material to one or more teeth, for the intended purpose of preventing dental caries (cavities) or other forms of tooth decay. After curing, the plastic becomes a hard, thin layer covering the treated portions of the tooth.

Dental Emergencies

Dental Emergencies

Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage.

Root Canal Therapy

Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. It is a process where the infected nerves (in the space of the tooth) are removed, wherein the pulp is cleaned out, the space is disinfected and then filled to prevent any bacteria from seeping into the canal.

Extractions / Wisdom teeth

Extractions / Wisdom teeth

It is inevitable that sometimes extraction is the only option for a badly broken down tooth or impacted wisdom teeth. We are very experienced in this field but will gladly refer to a Consulting Oral Surgeon if you have Medical Insurance.

Dentures

Dentures

Dentures (more commonly known as false teeth) are removable, prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft (such as the gums) and hard tissues (teeth and bone) of the mouth. Conventional dentures are removable. There are two types of dentures, a partial (which covers several missing teeth) or a full denture (which covers all your teeth, either on the top or bottom). Making dentures is a fine art. We’ll strive to make your dentures look natural and give you something to smile about.

Sports Dentistry

Sports Dentistry

Sporting injuries are common in a sporting nation like New Zealand. A customised well-constructed mouth guard is essential for any contact sport. It can make the difference between preventing serious dental trauma or a lifetime of wearing a denture or costly dentistry. We will make that difference for you by providing a well-adapted and fitting mouth guard that is specifically made to fit you so you can play with confidence.
