Family General Dentist Hornsby
We recommend that children visit their local Hornsby dentist once every six months, starting from the age of two years old. As soon as their teeth start developing, dental problems can arise, such as plaque build-up and orthodontic problems
Our dentists can help treat your children for the following:
- Emergency children’s dental
- Preventative orthodontics
- Children’s check-ups
- Fissure and sealants for 5–13-year-old’s
Adults should aim for a general hygiene visit every six months to maintain healthy teeth and gum and watch for long-term dental problems.
Our dental clinic in Hornsby can provide hygiene check-ups for locals with our advanced cleaning equipment.

Children’s teeth can grow in different shapes and angles. This can make it difficult for children to clean their teeth properly. Children can also develop small grooves in their teeth which can attract and build up plaque.
A regular check-up can find these small grooves and give us the time to use preventative treatment options such as fissure sealants to stop long-term damage. A fissure sealant is a bonded coating used to seal the groove and prevent tooth decay.
A bridge is used to fill in missing teeth with false teeth. The bridge is permanently fitted to your mouth using your existing teeth to support the placement of the bridge. It is an ideal option for replacing one or more teeth.
A crown is used to cover an existing tooth that has been damaged. Chipped or broken teeth receive the crown to protect the existing tooth and provide support where a filling would not work.
Onlays and inlays are custom-made porcelain fillings that can sit on top (onlay) or in (inlay) your tooth. This treatment is typically reserved for hard-to-reach teeth, wisdom teeth or molars, where a normal filling cannot be done. Both onlays and inlays are used to protect your existing tooth and support an existing filling.
Gum disease can occur when the tissue around the gum and teeth becomes infected. It is very common for adults in Australia to develop moderate to severe levels of gum disease. For most people, gum disease can be prevented by brushing your teeth twice and day and visiting your dentist on a regular basis.
If you are suffering from the following symptoms, then you may be experiencing gum disease.
- Bad breath or taste
- Bleeding gums
- Inflamed gums
- Loose or sensitive teeth
- Receding gums
Root canal treatment is an endodontic treatment to repair the inside of a damaged tooth. The process involves drilling a hole into the tooth and extracting the inside. The tooth is then filled in, helping to protect the tooth and provide support. For some patients, a crown may also be attached to the tooth for further protection.
Root canal damage symptoms can include:
- Pain while chewing
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods
- Darkening of the tooth’s colour
- Swollen or sensitive gums
- Infected or loose teeth
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth. The procedure is done in two stages. The first stage involves fusing a titanium screw to the jawbone and allowing enough time for the bone to heal and secure itself around the screw.
The second stage involves attaching a dental crown to the screw. The crown, or artificial tooth, will then fill in the gap in your missing teeth. Dental implants can help prevent infection, nerve damage, sinus problems, restore functionality, and appeal to your mouth.
False teeth, known as dentures, can be used to replace a series of missing teeth. A denture can be used to make eating and speaking easier while also providing the look and feel of having teeth again.
Dentures are often chosen because they are cost-effective and removable. Here at Timeless Smiles, we offer the following types of dentures.
- A full denture: replacing the entire jaw (upper or lower)
- A partial denture: replacing two or more teeth with a denture that is held in by your existing teeth
- An implant-retained denture: replacing one or more teeth using a fixed dental implant
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.
Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Hornsby
Our dental clinic in Hornsby offers porcelain veneers and composite resin veneers. Porcelain veneers offer the closest match to natural teeth, take two visits, are more expensive, and last up to 20 years. We custom-make our porcelain veneers for every patient.
Composite resin veneers offer a similar match to natural teeth, but it is not as close as porcelain. These veneers can be achieved in only one visit and are more affordable than porcelain due to the material and treatment time.
