Contact us on (08) 8364 2557 wherever in the Norwood SA 5067 postcode you live, and we will be happy to discuss the potential dental treatments open to you, and how your dentist can deliver a range of preventative care services designed to improve your smile and oral health.
As trusted Norwood dentists, we have an experienced team that is committed to using the latest technology and techniques in order to provide comprehensive dentistry services for customers of all ages. In particular, the dentist team specialises in all forms of cosmetic dentistry treatments, designed to enhance your smile and help maintain overall oral health.
Our range of cosmetic dental services include:
Composite resin and porcelain dental veneers
Dental veneers are a highly effective way of repairing teeth that are chipped, broken or discoloured. Your dentist can fit affordable composite resin and porcelain veneers, depending on your circumstances. Veneers deliver a range of benefits — speech and appearance are not affected, while you can chew and eat without concerns. Likewise, veneers help to restore a beautiful smile and are virtually undetectable, while maintenance is simple and straightforward.
Implants are different to other forms of cosmetic dentistry, as they are designed to replace an entire tooth rather than just coat the surface. They are generally more comfortable than conventional dentures, and make it easier to maintain a regular oral health routine. Likewise, implants do not impact on your ability to speak clearly.
Both an implant and a bridge will be designed to look entirely natural through matching the colouring of your own teeth. A key point of difference, however, is that dental implants usually last significantly longer. Also, unlike bridges, with implants you are able to maintain regular brushing and flossing, making the maintenance of your remaining teeth easier. To find out which is right for you, arrange an appointment with a member of our Norwood dentist family, who can assess whether your teeth and mouth are suited to an implant or require a different solution.
Crowns and ceramic fillings are another way of fixing damaged teeth, or replacing earlier fillings that are no longer up to the job. At Burnside Dental Practice, we use the CEREC™ system for dental crowns, which has the significant advantage of treatment being able to be completed in a single visit, meaning you don’t need to make more than one appointment at our Norwood SA 5067 clinic to achieve the desired result. In addition, CEREC™ dental crowns are biocompatible, look completely natural and are long lasting, so offer exceptional value for money.
Teeth whitening is a great way to give your smile a makeover when teeth have become discoloured or stained as a result of diet or other lifestyle factors. We utilise the Zoom teeth whitening process, that involves both in-chair and at-home tooth whitening, enabling you to enjoy the benefits of a brighter smile for longer.
Our cosmetic dentist Norwood team specialise in fitting Invisalign clear retainers, which offer a more comfortable and attractive alternative to conventional meal braces. Virtually invisible and impossible to spot (making them especially popular with children), Invisalign retainers do not affect your ability eat and chew, nor do they stop you from being able to brush and floss as normal.
Although your dentist will generally attempt to save a tooth, there are times when this isn’t the right solution, and so an extraction is required. This will usually be done in order to prevent the spread of infection and bone loss, in order to minimise the pain this can cause. If required, we can create a treatment plan that looks at a range of sedation options, including the use of IV sedation and nitrous sedation (more commonly known as happy gas).
If you play sport or are engaged in other physical activities, and want to protect your teeth from being damaged or knocked out, then mouth guards are the answer. When your dentist fits a mouth guard, it will be customised to your teeth and so will be comfortable to wear. In addition, our mouth guards provide optimum protection by spreading the impact of any blows, while still enabling you to talk and breathe naturally.
The dentist team at Burnside Dental Practice & Implant Centre (including our nurses, hygienists and admin team) prides itself on providing dental care for the entire family.
We are committed to creating a calm, welcoming environment where both adults and child patients are made to feel comfortable, and where any concerns are addressed in an open manner. We also utilise a variety of advanced technology as part of a treatment plan, such as digital imaging and EMS AIRFLOW, as well as various sedation options (including happy gas).
