General Dentistry Thornleigh
Our clinic recommends that children visit the Thornleigh dentist every six months for a hygiene visit from 2 years old and onwards. It all starts with strong dental hygiene habits from an early age; brushing and flossing.
Even with good oral hygiene, there may be unavoidable dental problems such as misaligned teeth or plaque build-up. Regular visits will help ensure our dentists discover these problems early before they become serious.
Choose Timeless Smiles for your kid’s dental:
- Emergency dental
- Fissure and sealants (5–13 years of age)
- Preventative orthodontic treatment
- Regular check-ups
Adults also require regular dental visits every six months. As we grow older, we are more likely to develop more dental issues. Even with good hygienic habits, problems can still occur. Our team believes in preventive dentistry so we can find and treat the problem before it gets worse.
Missing a regular check-up may end up costing your time and money in the long run. Do not let your oral health become a problem. Our dentists can help prevent and check for numerous dental issues. If you are experiencing bad breath, bleed, receding gums or sensitive teeth — contact our clinic for a check-up today.
Fillings & Fissure Sealants
As children lose and grow new teeth, they may appear at difficult to clean angles or develop tough to reach grooves in the tooth. In these cases, plaque and bacteria can build up. Our fissure sealant treatment option is a bonded coating that seals and prevents tooth decay from occurring.
This procedure is often pain-free and straightforward. If your child has difficulty brushing their teeth, has misaligned teeth, or is about to receive braces — fissure sealants can help prevent long-term dental issues.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that goes on top of your existing tooth. We use dental crowns to treat broken or chipped teeth in cases where the tooth’s damage is far too great for a filling.
A dental bridge is used to fill the gap where teeth have been removed or lost. The bridge is the false tooth and is permanently fitted to your mouth. We attach this false tooth by connecting the bridge with the real teeth on either side of the gap.
Dental crowns and bridges are used to fill unwanted gaps and cover damaged teeth. In both of these cases, patients may feel self-conscious about their unappealing gap or damaged tooth.
However, health concerns can also be present if your damaged natural tooth is left uncovered or the gap in your smile causes pain or discomfort. We can provide bridges and crowns to restore your smile and preserve your natural teeth permanently.
Onlays and inlays are a customised porcelain filling that sits in or on top of your tooth to protect hard to reach teeth — such as wisdom teeth or back molars. This treatment option is suitable for when a filling cannot be used to protect these hard-to-reach teeth.
Onlays are when the filling sits on top of the tooth and an inlay is when it sits inside the tooth. Both treatment options are ideal options if your existing metal filling is damaged. Another reason why patients choose our onlays and inlays is because we make our fillings offsite in a lab. In turn, this means our porcelain fillings are customised for your specific mouth and tooth.
Advance Dental treatment Procedures
Gum disease is a common issue for adults in Australia. It occurs when the gum’s tissue around the teeth becomes infected. Gum disease can range from minor to severe. However, in most cases, brushing your teeth twice and day and regular visits to the dentist can prevent gum disease.
If you suffer from the following, you may be experiencing gum disease symptoms:
- Bad breath or bad taste
- Bleeding gums
- Gum inflammation
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums
- Sensitive teeth
Regular dental check-ups are the best way to prevent gum disease. We use advanced technology to assess and remove plaque and bacteria build-up. Book an appointment today with one of our dentists Thornleigh.
Known as endodontic treatment, root canal treatment is a process to repair the damage inside of a tooth. This treatment option will involve drilling a hole into your tooth to remove the soft centre. Once the centre has been removed, the tooth is filled and sealed. In some cases, a crown may be placed over the tooth to protect it.
If you suffer from the following, you may require root canal treatment:
- Pain when chewing
- Sensitivity to heat and cold
- Darkening of the tooth
- Sensitive and swollen gums
- Infected teeth
- Loose teeth
We can help diagnose and treat root canal problems. If you do require this treatment, our dentists will walk you through the entire process — duration, cost, process and anything else. We will do everything to help manage your pain and ease your concerns. For reliable and safe root canal treatment, choose Timeless Smiles dental clinic in Thornleigh.
This procedure is used to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants are a permanent treatment option since the implant is fused to the jawbone. The procedure typically takes 2–3 visits and starts with a titanium screw that is attached to your jawbone — when the missing tooth is located.
Time is taken after this procedure to let the bone grow over the implant. After this, your second visit will involve an artificial tooth (dental crown) being attached to the screw. This will fill the gap with an artificial tooth, restoring functionality and appeal to your smile.
A dental implant by one of our Thornleigh dentists is an ideal option for patients with a missing tooth or missing teeth. It is a permanent solution for combating infection, nerve damage, sinus problems, and general day-to-day discomfort. Contact our clinic to discuss if a dental implant is right for you.
Known as false teeth, dentures are worn to replace a series of missing teeth. Patients choose dentures because they make eating and speaking easier. It is also a cost-effective treatment option for those who need a functional and aesthetically appealing solution.
Dentures are ideal for when you need the following:
- Full dentures: to replace the entire upper or lower jaw
- Partial dentures: to replace two or more joined teeth — held together by clasps on the existing teeth
- Implant-retained dentures: to replace one or more teeth that is fixed through an implant to the jaw
Dentures are a conservative and affordable option to replace teeth. Restore your smile and bite with a denture to replace one tooth, a few teeth, or an entire arch. Contact us today and we can begin your denture treatment option plan.
These are the last teeth to grow in your upper and lower gums. They typically arrive in your late teenage years and early twenties. In some cases, your wisdom teeth can cause complications such as overcrowding, general pain, and difficulty to clean.
For many patients, the removable of your wisdom teeth can be a preventative option to avoid overcrowding, gum pain and tooth decay. In addition, our Thornleigh dentists can monitor the growth of your wisdom teeth and suggest the right treatment option for when complications occur.
Your #1 Choice For Cosmetic Dentist In Thornleigh
We offer two types of veneers at Timeless Smiles: porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers.
Porcelain veneers are the more expensive veneer option. This is due to the high-quality porcelain material that we use. In turn, this results in a more natural-looking veneer that resembles a natural tooth. Porcelain veneers also last up to 20 years and are custom-made to resemble your existing teeth. As such, this treatment option takes two visits.
Composite resin veneers are a more affordable option. While the veneer closely resembles a tooth, the resin material does not offer the same match as porcelain does. Resin veneers last up to 10–15 years but can be achieved in only one dental visit.
Teenagers and adults commonly require an orthodontic procedure to correct problems with tooth alignment and bite. We can help straighten the teeth of children, teenagers, and adults suffering from crooked and gapped teeth, poor bites, and misaligned jaws.
We use traditional braces, Invisalign, Damon fixed braces, Myobrace, and ClearCorrect to straighten the teeth of children, teenagers, and adults. Our diverse range of teeth straightening solutions allows us to find the right treatment option to suit your budget and lifestyle.
Traditional braces are not always the perfect treatment option for orthodontic problems. Invisalign clear aligners can help correct minor orthodontic issues for patients that live a busy lifestyle. This treatment involves the patient wearing a series of clear aligners for 1–2 weeks and then moving onto the next set until the teeth have corrected themselves.
Our teeth whitening solutions involve in-chair and take-home solutions for your convenience. We can help you achieve a whiter shade on your set of teeth. Discover our range of solutions by booking an appointment with one of our Thornleigh cosmetic dentists today.
