improving your smile

Changes in the appearance of your teeth can be due to a number of factors, for example, staining that results from certain foods, drinks, smoking, or antibiotics taken as a child. You may also have developed chips or cracks in your teeth from trauma, sporting injuries or simply age and wear.

At VAN DER WALT DENTAL we are able to offer an extensive range of procedures to restore your smile, these include:

Tooth Coloured Composite Resin Restorations

These fillings are made of a mixture of plastic material and give a very strong and aesthetically pleasing result

Veneers

These are thin tooth coloured porcelain shells that are crafted and bonded to cover the front teeth and can significantly improve the appearance of your smile

Crowns and Bridges:

These restorations are made of tooth coloured porcelain and fit over significantly broken or damaged teeth and can fill a space where teeth may be missing.

Inlays

These restorations are used to repair damaged back teeth and can be made of tooth coloured porcelain. These restorations are cemented within the cusp tips of the tooth and are more attractive than the old black amalgam fillings.

Onlays

These are made the same way as inlays but are a more extensive restoration and cover one or more cusps of the tooth

Bleaching

Bleaching can lighten the colour of your teeth and is ideal for undamaged teeth. This procedure works best for teeth that are stained yellow, brown or orange

Implants

Implants are artificial tooth roots that are secured into the jaw to replace missing teeth. Implants and the crowns that are attached to them look like natural teeth.
