COSMETIC DENTISTRY AT BRICE DENTAL NEWCASTLE

If you are concerned or unhappy with the colour of your teeth or the size, shape or alignment of your teeth, getting cosmetic dentistry at Brice Dental may provide a solution for your concerns.

Cosmetic Dentistry at our practice aims to create better looking teeth and a dazzling happy smile for you.

It may be a combination of following treatments:

TEETH WHITENING

Teeth can get discolored during day to day use and slowly get surface stains. At Brice Dental tooth whitening can be achieved reliably and safely by bleaching agents to make the teeth bright and white again.

At Brice Street Dental we use both light activation and laser activation of the bleaching gel applied safely to your teeth to achieve great results. At the end of this appointment, you will leave our surgery with a bright dazzling smile. You are then able to maintain the fantastic results achieved with at home whitening maintenance.

For home whitening, we will take an impression/mould of your teeth to make you a thin, comfortable and well fitting plastic tray for your teeth. You place the bleaching gel provided to you into the trays in the comfort of your home and wear them for up to 30 minutes every day, for about a month to get whiter, brighter smile.

VENEERS & CROWNS

Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the
front of your teeth to cover imperfections in your teeth or to
straighten your teeth without braces in certain circumstances.
Imperfections that can be covered by veneers include:

  • Undesirably shaped teeth,
  • Worn down teeth,
  • Broken teeth or
  • Badly stained/discoloured or pitted teeth.

Composite veneers are a cost effective alternative to porcelain
veneers. These are plastic veneers built in mouth by Dr. Paul to
cover the front of visible teeth to improve your smile.

Dental veneers can be used on all visible teeth to change the
colour, shape & smile for a total smile makeover.

A dental crown is a dental restoration which caps and encircles a tooth
or a dental implant, that improves the strength and appearance of teeth and increase the life span of compromised teeth.

ORAL IMPLANTS & BRIDGES

Missing teeth in adults can be replaced by dentures, bridges and dental
implants. Dentures are the most economical option for replacement
of missing teeth.

Full dentures are used to replace all missing teeth and are made
of plastic.

Partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth, where
the remaining teeth will provide support to the denture with the
help of clasps [metal wires] which go around the remaining
natural teeth. Partial dentures can be made of plastic or combination of plastic and metal.

Immediate dentures are the dentures fabricated before the teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures are placed in the mouth right after tooth/teeth extraction so that there is no time period of being without teeth. With immediate dentures we have less control over how they look and they need to be relined as the gums heal.

Dental Implants are permanently fixed replacements for missing teeth that look and function like natural teeth and restore eating, speaking and looks back to normal.

Bridges are used to replace teeth that are already missing or damaged beyond repair. Using a dental crown, they are permanenty attached to the adjacent teeth.
