Caries

Dental caries is the term used to describe rotten teeth or tooth decay which results in cavities or holes in the teeth.
     
Composite Restorations

Small fractures and fillings can be restored by using a tooth-coloured composite resin material. It is not as durable as porcelain but less expensive.
     
Porcelain Inlays & Overlays

Porcelain fillings will be manufactured with CEREC, a sophisticated CAD/CAM system for the production of all-ceramic inlays, onlays, partial crowns, veneers and crowns for anterior and posterior teeth.

Porcelain has good durability and wear resistance. It has the same micro-structure as the enamel of your tooth thus has a greater longevity in the mouth. It looks and feels great.
     
Bruxism

Bruxism is characterized by the grinding of the teeth, leading loss of tooth structure. Bruxers may be unaware of the habit as it usually occurs during sleep and periods of high concentration during the day.
     
Implantology

Missing teeth can be replaced by implants. Implants are titanium screws that are strategically placed into the jawbone then restored with a porcelain crown.
     
Oral Hygiene

Professional prophylaxis (scale and polish) is recommended twice a year for adults and at least 4 times per year for children under 12 years who struggle to brush their teeth. Regular prophylaxis prevents bad breath (halitosis) and gum infection (gingivitis). .
 
Aestetic Dentistry
 
     
Porcelain Laminate Veneers

Veneers are prepared by reducing minimal tooth structure and subsequently bonding a thin layer of porcelain to the tooth in order to improve the colour, shape and length of the tooth.
     
Emax press Crowns

The IPS E-MAX system is used to restore teeth with full coverage crowns that give high strength and great aesthetic results. These crowns are manufactured with lithium disilicate glass-ceramic that allows light to pass through (translucency) the crown resulting in the resemblance of a natural tooth.
     
Tooth Whitening

The first thing that people notice about you is your smile, you have the chance to make a great first impression, as first impressions always last. Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Long lasting results for up to 3 years can be expected when using the Brite Smile in-office power bleach if your teeth are maintained correctly.

A variety of home-bleaching kits and different products are available upon request.

Botox & Fillers
 
     
Botox

Botox is a fast and easy way to improve your fine frown lines, wrinkels, gummy smile and bruxism symptoms. It is an ‘in and out’ procedure lasting for up to 4 months, depending on the condition of your skin, area treated, amount injected and lifestyle factors such as smoking and sun exposure. It takes between 10-14 days to have full effect after initial injection. BOTOX is a safe and conservative alternative to cosmetic surgery and is completely reversible.
     
Fillers

Fillers are used for lip augmentation, volumization, dark circles under your eyes and treatment of the deep naso-labial folds. It contains a built-in anaesthetic providing a more comfortable experience, and lasting for up to a year and a half. Hyaluronic acid forms part of the dermal filler family and is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. The most important biological function of HA is water retention and this results in the skin feeling soft, smooth and elastic. Therefore, HA is used to hydrate and add volume to the skin.

skin resurfscing treatments
     

pHformula is the first pharma-cosmeceutical treatment line, which is the result of an innovative alliance between cosmeceutical and medical prescriptions. The pHformula treatment system is based on the technology of regenerative medicine with the concept of creating controlled chemical skin resurfacing. The action of controlled chemical skin resurfacing is totally different from conventional peelings. Peelings mainly cause skin exfoliation or peeling, whereas controlled resurfacing actively provokes an accelerated form of cell regeneration in the different layers of the skin, whilst trauma and superficial irritation are reduced.

pHformula successfully treats skin disorders like aging hyper-pigmentation, acne and chronic redness. With continuous scientific based research, the focus always remains on the development of innovative skin resurfacing treatments.

The efficacy of controlled chemical skin resurfacing not only depends on the choice, nature or concentration of the acids used but most importantly on the maximum proton delivery in a uniform manner, without causing excessive skin irritation during contact time with the skin. With more than 25 years of experience in skin resurfacing the Research Laboratories of pHformula have developed a unique controlled chemical skin resurfacing philosophy.
