General & Restorative Dentistry

General dentists are the primary dental care providers for patients of all ages. They can treat you and your entire family and care for your overall oral health. This is crucial to your total health. Your general dentist takes responsibility for the diagnosis, treatment and overall coordination of services to meet your oral health needs. If you need a specialised dental procedure performed, your general dentist may work with other dental specialists to make sure you get the care you need.

A general dentist is someone who is concerned with the care and maintenance of your teeth. He or she will place on emphasis on preventative care as well as undertaking ‘restorative treatments’.

This preventative approach includes 6 to 12 monthly check ups and teeth cleaning.

Many general dentists are also able to undertake cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry which is concerned with improving the appearance of your teeth, and your smile. It is usually carried out for reasons of personal enhancement as compared to a medical 'need'.

Composite or white fillings are the most widely used because of their natural appearance. Composite filling is more pleasing than amalgam fillings it is made from durable plastics known as composite resins.

A wide range of shades are available to match very closely to your natural teeth; some fillings are matched so perfectly, it’s sometimes impossible to spot the tooth that is filled.

Composite fillings are naturally bonded to your own tooth can be used for back teeth and are certainly the most aesthetic option for front teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry

From subtle changes to major repairs, your dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring.
These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.
