It is best to visit your dentist for a consultation to find out which option is best for you. Important considerations before making your decision include your budget and whether you’re looking for major or minor changes to your smile.

How long your crown and bridge lasts depend on the effectiveness and regularity of your dental hygiene routine. As a general rule, they last between 7-15 years but longer periods are certainly possible with outstanding oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.

If cared for properly, dentures are expected to last up to 5-8 years without needing a replacement.

Just like your original teeth, Dentures need maintenance. Denture teeth may show wear and tear over time, it is recommended to have a check with your dentist regularly to make sure they are not damaging your gum or mouth.

Typically, you will heal within a week and any pain can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relief medication.

  • Aesthetically pleasing — the shade/colour of the composite can be closely matched to the colour of your teeth, making it a natural looking solution
  • Versatile — in addition to its use as a filling material, composite fillings can also be used to repair chipped, cracked or broken teeth. 
  • Requires minimal tooth preparation 
  • Bonds to tooth structure — composite fillings chemically bond to tooth structure, providing further support to the tooth 

When done by a properly qualified dentist, whitening is a very safe and effective practice. Some patients will experience some tooth sensitivity prior to whitening, this will normally stop within 48 hours and isn’t a sign of damage to the teeth.

Getting a filling is normally painless. While you may feel some discomfort, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic which will numb the area. You may experience some discomfort and sensitivity after the procedure, this will go away and can be managed with pain relief medication. 

The effects of whitening can last 2-3 years or as little as 6 months, it varies from person to person. Things like smoking and drinking coffee will make your whitening short lived.

That depends entirely on the treatment goals you set with your doctor and the amount of correction that needs to be achieved. Poor oral hygiene and poor compliance with the recommended daily wear schedule can increase treatment time and affect the quality of the results.

Most patients feel some pressure or minor discomfort for a few days after each new aligner, but it is minor and will go away on its own.

If you have missing teeth, one of the requirements for you to have a dental implant fitted is that your mouth is in good health. Meaning that you have a healthy sufficient bone to support the implant and no gum disease.   Your dentist will do a comprehensive examination and X rays investigations to come up with different restorative options with the best possible outcomes, depending on the existing conditions.

Your dental implant recovery time and side effects will depend on many factors, including the number of implants, your dental health, and length of the surgery. You may experience some swelling and discomfort following the procedure and you may find it difficult to chew for several days after surgery. These symptoms should subside in around 5-7 days.
