Fillings are used to restore damaged, broken or decayed teeth. There are 2 types of filling materials
used: Amalgam fillings or tooth colored fillings. Amalgam fillings are made from a mixture of metals.
These fillings are extremely durable and have a longer life span. Tooth colored or composite fillings
are made from a resin. These are a natural looking alternative. These fillings can be made virtually
Root Canal Treatment is required when the root of a tooth is damaged or decayed and at risk of
being infected. The treatment consists of removing the infection and restructuring the core of the
tooth, helping to prevent the need for an extraction in the future.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and Bridges :Dental crowns and bridges are used to treat broken,cracked or missing
teeth.Crowns are small porcelain caps placed on top of teeth helping rebuild their shape ensuring
strength and security.Bridges are used in a similar way but secure multiple broken or missing teeth
instead.Both treatments are reliable,strong and extremely long lasting and affordable.
Who is the Damon treatment suitable for?
The Damon System may be just what you are looking for if any of the following apply to you:
You are unhappy with the appearance of more than just a few teeth at the front of your mouth
You need a full brace, but want one that works more quickly than conventional treatments
You want to avoid potentially invasive treatments like crowns and veneers
You have had orthodontic treatment in the past that is now relapsing
The Damon System
Using the Damon Braces system for full teeth straightening you can now have an improved smile in
far less time and with far fewer visits to the dentist than for conventional dental brace treatments.
The Damon system is up to six months faster, whilst comfortable, and works for patients of all ages
and (in the majority of cases) straightens your teeth without the need for tooth extraction.
There are also payment plans available for this treatment
We adopt a very minimal approach to Botox with the idea that less is more when it comes to the
face. The only product we use is Allergan Botox which is the market leader and manufactured in
Ireland (always a plus). Some other botulinum products are cheaper but, in my opinion, the results
are not as good or long lasting which in the long run works out costing everybody more.
The other area of facial cosmetics is fillers..these have seen huge growth in recent years, mainly
because of social media. This treatment is mainly concentrated around the mouth area to get rid of
smokers lines, flat lips, nasolabial folds and marionette lines at the corner of the mouth. While Botox
takes a few days to see the affects, filler is more immediate and can last for up to 9 months. We use
both Allergan & Juvederm products and Vivacy Stylage as our main filler products. Both are leading
brands in their fields.
What is botox?
Botox is an injection that temporarily relaxes facial muscles reducing the appearance of fine lines
and wrinkles as well as preventing new lines from forming. Common injection sites are the
glabella (region between eyebrows), forehead and outer corners of eyes(crows feet).Treatment is
fast and painless and lasts from 4 to 6 months.
Dermal Fillers: The Procedure
Firstly the area is evaluated to decide what areas would benefit you most.
Injection usually takes only a few moments per site. The process of injecting, massaging, and
evaluating the result is performed, and additional filler added as needed.
Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be as short as 15 minutes.
Area is then wiped clean, if you experience a little swelling an ice pack would be recommended
TRANSFORM YOUR SMILE WITH FULLER PLUMPER LIPS…… Lip enhancement provides a fast and
effective way to improve the appearance of lips. Whether you want to restore youthful plumpness,
or add volume, we will tailor the delicate proportions of filler required to give you your desired
result. Filler can be used in a number of ways, correcting asymmetry, increasing fullness and
definition and helping to hide the tell tale creases brought about by sun or smoking.
Cleaning & Whitening
The mouth is an area that’s completely different from the entire body, and it takes quite a beating
from the food we eat and the talking we do all day long. And this unique environment requires
Teeth cleanings remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. This buildup is for the most part natural
But too much buildup leads to gum disease.
Gum disease is when your body’s immune system is responding to this tartar buildup with inflamed
and bleeding gums. The immune system response is successful at killing off invaders like infection
and flu bugs, but at a cost: like a war, there are innocent bystanders that get slaughtered. As gum
disease progresses, so does the destruction to your bone and tissues in your mouth.
Your immune system is meant only to fight off infection for a short period of time — chronic
activation of the immune system means it can get worn out and it won’t be as strong to fight off an
illness. Chronic activation of the immune system can lead to diseases in the rest of your body.
Many Products on the market claim to give you “Pearly Whites” however there is still nothing on the
market that whitens teeth as much and as quickly as the traditional gel and mouth shield.
How Does Tray Teeth Whitening Work?
A whitening gel is placed in a tray that fits over your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel,
carbamide peroxide, is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and bleaches the colored
substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth is made lighter and whiter.
Fillings, Crowns, and Bonding will not lighten.
The fit of the tray is critical to success of treatment. Impressions are made by your dentist. Accurate
models of your teeth are obtained from which custom fitting whitening trays can be made. We all
want that Hollywood smile, and our results speak for themsleves.
