Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers

Are You a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers

You may be in need of porcelain veneers if you are experiencing one of the following:

Discoloration. Over time, the enamel of your teeth can become dull, yellow, or discolored. Sometimes, teeth whitening cannot reach deeper intrinsic stains, but porcelain veneers can cover the discoloration.

Gaps. Unsightly gaps between your teeth can be quickly hidden by porcelain veneers, which have the ability to create the appearance of a uniform length, shape, and spacing of your teeth.

Root Canal Symptoms

Symptoms that Root Canal Therapy May Be Needed

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  • Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed)
  • Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the gums
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present

Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.

A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems including pain and sensitivity as the first indications of a problem.  However, inside a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, which can lead to an abscess. 

Dreading Going to the Dentist Due to Dental Fear

Dreading Going to the Dentist Due to Dental Fear

Relax; you're in great hands - Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the dentist or having dental procedures done. Apprehensive patients ofter avoid dental care, leading to advanced disease and even more extensive treatment.

What would you say if you were told it is possible to get all your dentistry done in a few short visits and not remember any of it? Well, it is now possible to sleep through your appointment! For many who have let the health of their mouth decline because of fear or anxiety, we can now sedate you to get you through all procedures. With the use of a small pill one hour prior to the appointment, your anxiety can be lifted away, and the noise of the procedure and awareness is completely removed.

The doctors at Family First Dental Center understand the importance of helping our patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures.

Conscious Sedation provides a safe, effective way to alleviate dental anxiety. It’s perfect for patients who have:

    Dental Anxiety
    Difficulty getting numb
    Very sensitive teeth
    Discomfort with needles
    Little free time

No more neglecting yourself, or dreading your appointments. This is one of the greatest innovations for patients. Finally, you can feel confident in the health and appearance of your smile. So why put off what no longer has to be dreaded?

When Tooth Removal is Necessary

When Tooth Removal is Necessary

While our team always attempts to save natural teeth, there are certain situations where that is not possible. Some of the common reasons patients need to undergo tooth extraction include:

  • Trauma/injury – a blow sustained to teeth can often crack or fracture them in such a way that it’s impossible to retain the remaining structure.
  • Disease/decay – while we will attempt root canal, antibiotics, and other procedures to remove infection and decay, when teeth are significantly weakened or infection begins to spread to surrounding teeth, extraction is necessary.
  • Orthodontic crowding – before braces or other orthodontic treatment can begin, some patients need to have one or more teeth removed to prevent crowding and allow teeth to properly align.
  • Impacted teeth – teeth that are unable to erupt due to the angle they develop, crowding, or other issues, may need to be extracted to prevent them from misaligning other teeth, decaying, or causing infection. This is most common with third molars (wisdom teeth).
  • Wisdom Teeth Extractions – The most commonly extracted teeth are wisdom teeth. This third set of molars was an evolutionary development from a time when the human species had a much coarser, dentally destructive diet. By the late teens and early twenties, people were often missing several of their molars, and the tertiary set was necessary. With better understanding of dental health and less damaging diets, most people do not need their third set of molars, and this set of teeth is the most commonly extracted.

The practice professionals are very focused on aesthetic dentistry, which not only includes crowns, veneers, and whitening, but also replacing missing teeth. Today, dental implants are often used for tooth replacement and denture retention, and Advanced Dental Centre Pty. Ltd is able to offer these services to their patients. Advanced Dental Centre Pty. Ltd. is also able to provide sedation (sleep dentistry) for patients that are nervous or have a hypersensitive gag reflex.

On your first appointment, one of our highly qualified dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and soft tissues to identify any acute concerns which may require immediate treatment. We will evaluate your medical and dental history and assist you with any oral hygiene issues.

Our approach is aimed at producing a healthy mouth and preventing dental problems prior to undertaking the aesthetic dentistry you may wish to have. Video analysis of your mouth will aid in the evaluation process, giving you a clear understanding of your dental condition.

A detailed and comprehensive treatment plan will be prepared taking your clinical findings into consideration. The plan will include a written estimate of costs, a sequence of dental treatment and a timeline for completion.

Advanced Dental Centre is a pro-active dental practice with a strong belief in preventative dental care – at a minimum we will recommend six-monthly hygiene visits and encourage our patients to book their appointments in advance.
