Healthcare @ Lifestyle principal dentist brings over 20 years of clinical expertise and offers family
care which includes:
Ceramic crowns are required when there is not enough natural tooth structure remaining or to replace old leaking or cosmetically inadequate crowns. They are also used to repair chips, cracks and similar damage. Crowns completely cover a damaged tooth. The dark metal typically associated with crowns are no longer necessary today, as Ceramic or Zirconium replaces the old metal structure to give you an all ceramic crown, that looks and feels like a natural tooth. We offer ceramic crowns at medical aid rates.
Missing teeth do more than just create a negative impression. Every missing tooth you have increases your
risk for decay, infection and additional, future missing teeth. Dental implants are secure, and require
minimal recovery time (2-3 months depending on oral health).
We offer the restorative phase of implant dentistry at Medical aid rate. Most people prefer a permanent, non-removable dental implant, as opposed to a removable plastic denture. The implants are inserted into your jawbone, under your gums. The end result is a fine ceramic implant crown, which looks and feels like your natural teeth.
Good oral hygiene results in a mouth that looks and smells healthy. Thus meaning that your teeth are
clean and free of debris gums are pink and do not hurt or bleed when you brush or floss them.
If you experience pain or bleeding while brushing or flossing, or you are experiencing persistent bad breath you should consult with us. We can help you learn good oral hygiene techniques and can help point out areas of your mouth that may require extra attention during brushing and flossing. Daily care, including proper cleaning and flossing, will help stop problems before they develop and is much less painful and expensive than treating them.
We recommend doing the following:
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is made to match your natural tooth colour. About the
thickness of an eggshell (thus minimally invasive), veneers can change the size, shape and colour of
your teeth to give you a whole new look.
Veneers fix problems most visible when you smile or speak, such as cracks, chips, gaps, discoloration and more.
Veneers are made with Cerec CadCam technology. They are also coloured (stained and glazed) to match your existing teeth or create a new look altogether. Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of each damaged tooth, and attached with special cement. They require no additional care beyond regular brushing, flossing and regular visits to your dental hygienist.
Teeth whitening procedures are safe, quick and effective. If your teeth are discoloured, yellowed,
blackened or simply not as white as you prefer them we can help you.
We offer a Tray Whitening system which can be used in the comfort of your own home.
