Regular examinations are essential for good oral health. They help us to catch any problems early and keep time and costs to a minimum. During this appointment we will conduct a complete examination of your teeth and gums, check for any soft tissue abnormalities (including oral cancers) and take digital x-rays if required.
We will provide you with personalised advice on how to maintain optimum oral health and hygiene and keep you smiling for life.
Implants are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth. An implant consists of a titanium screw placed in the jaw, to which a crown, bridge or denture is affixed. We work with Christchurch’s leading specialists to achieve the best possible results for our patients.
We provide free general dentistry to secondary school-age students, from the start of Year 9 until their 18th birthday, under the Ministry of Health’s scheme. All we require is enrolment in the scheme.
Our dentists are registered providers of ACC treatment, for patients who have suffered an accident resulting in tooth damage. On occasion a co-payment may be required by the patient. Your dentist will discuss this with you prior to carrying out treatment.
Hygiene covers a range of treatments including thorough cleaning, periodontal care and prevention of gum disease.
White fillings are an aesthetic and effective way to restore tooth function and appearance. Using the latest techniques, we are able to repair chips, cracks and decay to the highest cosmetic standard.
Crowns are the ideal way to strengthen compromised teeth, particularly those that have been heavily filled or have had root canal treatment, and also to improve their appearance.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth, and there are several different types available, ask your dentist which one is right for you.
As a last resort, we are able to carry out extractions of severely damaged or irreparable teeth.
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth. We provide both partial (plastic or metal) and full dentures.
We provide professional take-home tooth whitening, as studies have shown that this is the most effective and gentle way to whiten teeth. We can also whiten individual dark teeth using a variety of different methods.
We provide both composite and porcelain veneers to conservatively improve the appearance and strength of front teeth.
Porcelain veneers provide the most aesthetic result for teeth that require moderate changes in shape, position, colour or size. Composite veneers are a more economical option and achieve a similar though slightly less aesthetic outcome.
When a tooth’s nerve has died or is irreparably damaged, we can carry out root canal treatment. This involves removing the dead or infected nerve and filling the tooth’s canal(s). Usually we also recommend placing a crown on the tooth after root canal treatment, to ensure the tooth remains strong.
Our visiting orthodontist, Dr Phil Murfitt, provides a full range of orthodontic treatment and is on site fortnightly.
We can provide a quotation for Work and Income New Zealand for emergency dental treatment.
