Our Services

Fillings

Cavities in the teeth can be filled with silver alloy, gold, porcelain, or composite resin. Porcelain and composite resin more closely match your natural tooth appearance, and you may prefer this for your front teeth. Silver alloy and gold is stronger and are options for your back teeth.

Crowns or "caps" are used if your tooth decay is extensive and you have limited tooth structure, which may cause weakened teeth. Large fillings and weak teeth increase the risk of your tooth breaking. The decayed or weakened area is removed and repaired. A crown is fitted over the remainder of your tooth.

Early treatment is less painful and less expensive than treatment of extensive decay. If you feel you may be in need of a filling, have it checked sooner rather than later as the decay from one tooth may spread to an adjacent tooth.

Smile Make-Overs

Your smile is a reflection of your personality and is the first insight to your inner self. A smile make-over will greatly improve your smile and boost your self-esteem and face value.

Smile make-overs usually involve tooth whitening to begin with. If you have chipped, discoloured or irregular teeth, dental veneers may be used to cover these flaws. If you have teeth missing, crowns and bridges may be incorporated to cosmetically change and improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Teeth Whitening

A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful…it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression.

At Arch Dental we use the Zoom teeth whitening method which takes approximately 60 minutes per treatment. The results are immediate, safe and comfortable and fadeback is less than if using other methods.

Teeth whitening is a bleaching system that lightens discoloured teeth. The most common causes of discoloured teeth include…

>

Aging

>

Consumption of potentially staining substances such as tea, coffee, softdrinks (particularly cola) and tobacco, excessive amounts of fluoride and some antibiotics

>

Trauma

>

Nerve degeneration

>

Old restorations (fillings)



So, take the first step in feeling good about yourself and looking great with brighter, whiter teeth by making an appointment with us today!

Teeth Alignment

Your upper teeth should fit slightly over your lower teeth. Your upper teeth protect your cheeks and lips from being bitten while your lower teeth protect your tongue.

Problems with teeth alignment are easier, quicker, and less expensive to treat when they are corrected early. Treatment for misaligned teeth is most successful in children and adolescents because their bones are still soft and their teeth move more easily but with modern technology mature age people can now avail of this treatment modality with great results.

The realignment of your teeth will provide you with greater benefits than a beautiful smile. Realigning teeth which are growing incorrectly prevents further dental problems later on. When one tooth is out of position, it often pushes other teeth out of position too. Properly aligned teeth have less chance of building up decay or becoming infected or needing fillings.

Invisible Braces

If you are suffering from issues such as teeth crowding, incorrect spacing, cross-bite, over-bite or under-bite, we can simply and effectively treat these issues with invisible braces.

Invisible braces use a modern approach to straightening your teeth by using a custom-made series of aligners created just for you. These aligners are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements we plan out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile you've always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're wearing the aligners.

Invisible braces allow you to eat whatever foods you wish. You may simply remove them at any time to brush and floss your teeth normally.

Crowns and Bridges

A dental crown is needed when your natural tooth structure has been weakened, broken or affected by tooth decay. Where a filling is used to fill a small portion of your tooth, a crown is used when your tooth has extensive damage.

If one or more of your teeth have been lost through an accident or through decay, we can assist you by applying a bridge. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth or teeth which are anchored to your natural teeth on either side of the gap.

At Arch Dental we offer many services which will improve not only the appearance of your smile, but your overall dental hygiene. Make an appointment now to find out about the options available for you.

Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin wafer of porcelain that is bonded to your tooth to give your tooth a whole new look. Your tooth or teeth are prepared by removing a small amount of the front surface and then bonding the veneer onto your tooth or teeth. Veneers can help you conceal a range of imperfections such as crookedness, discolouration, chips and gaps. Veneers are very similar to your natural teeth in colour, translucency and surface texture. They are highly resistant to wear and do not discolour.

With porcelain veneers, you can have the smile you want in just one or two visits. Make an appointment to find out more.

Cosmetic Dentistry

We offer cosmetic solutions for most patients to give that extra sparkle to your smile. From whitening to veneers to invisible braces we can cater to individual needs and help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Extractions and all other general dental services

It is important to brush and floss your teeth every day and have regular visits with a dentist. We recommend 6 monthly check-ups to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy and free from plaque build-up. If plaque builds up on your teeth it may permanently mark your teeth or cause tooth decay if left untreated.

Regular teeth cleaning by a dentist removes plaque that may develop even with careful brushing and flossing, especially in areas that are difficult for you to reach on your own.

You need to adopt good oral hygiene to prevent cavities. This consists of regular professional cleaning (every 6 months), brushing at least twice a day, and flossing at least daily.

At Arch Dental we offer many services which will improve not only the appearance of your smile, but your overall dental hygiene. Make an appointment with us today to find out the options available for you.
