Veneers (Smile Makeover)
A dental veneer is a thin layer of material that covers the front surface of your teeth. They are ideal for patients who are dissatisfied with teeth that are mildly crooked, cracked, chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped or have gaps between teeth. They enhance the appearance of an existing tooth in the same manner as a false finger nail enhances the appearance of a natural nail.
Some benefits of Dental Veneers include
- Even crooked appearance of teeth
- Cover unwanted gaps between teeth
- Whiten and cover discoloured or stained teeth
- Improve overall smile and facial appearance
- Correct chipped, misshapen, too large or too small teeth
Dentist at Healthlink offer two types of veneers to suit your needs.
Porcelain Veneers are thin aesthetic ceramic laminates that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth. The preparation required for porcelain veneers are minimal as only a thin layer of surface enamel is removed. The procedure is not one to be feared and is often painless. Porcelain veneers are created by locally owned computer controlled laboratory to match and enhance your facial profiles, skin tone and overall smile.
Composite Veneers are provided directly in chair by our highly skilled dentists using cosmetic dental filling materials. The veneers are directly moulded on the tooth surface and bonded using high strength technology. Composite veneers give excellent cosmetic results as well as being cost efficient as they do not include laboratory costs. However it is inferior in aesthetics compare to porcelain veneers and has a shorter longevity, and less stain resistant.

Crowns and Bridges (Smile Makeover)
Dental crowns (also known as caps) are ideal for restoring the appearance and function of teeth that can no longer be filled, are cracked, heavily broken down due to decay or have had root canal treatments. Dental crowns are made from metal alloys, porcelain or a combination of the two. The choice of material is based on the balance of strength and aesthetics requirements.
Dentist at Healthlink recommends crowns for cases such as
- Heavily broken down teeth
- Improve the cosmetic appearance of teeth
- Heavily decayed teeth
- To protect the remaining structure of teeth with large fillings
- As part of a dental implant to replace a missing tooth
- Strengthen teeth that had root canal treatment.
The procedure involves removing a small amount of enamel around the tooth to create a base for the crown to be permanently cemented. In many cases, a crown is the ideal option for protecting and strengthening the remaining tooth structure.
Dental bridges are treatments that permanently replace a missing tooth and the process is very similar to preparation for crowns. The traditional bridge consists of a porcelain tooth attached to two crowns that are cemented to the teeth on each side of the gap. However, there are different types of bridges for front and back teeth. Depending on the case, front bridges could be constructed to limit as much natural tooth reduction as possible.
Dentist at Healthlink clinic embraces the latest technologies to ensure that our treatments are of the highest quality and reducing in-chair time for our patients. Instead of taking traditional impressions, we incorporate high precision digital scanning cameras into our crowns and bridge work to provide the most precise fit possible. This also shortens the laboratory fabrication time and provides you with your crown and beautiful smile sooner!
