Teeth Cleaning

Preventative dentistry is always the focus at Majors Bay Dental. Our role is the prevention of dental disease, and we take it seriously. We look forward to seeing you for regular check-ups and teeth cleaning. We have invested in the latest diagnostic equipment, such as digital x-ray technology for quick, safe and easy results.

Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns are used for cosmetic and restorative reasons. It is the best way to save the tooth and strengthen it. The crown fits over prepared existing tooth and replaces the natural crown.

Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of artificial tooth anchored to the adjacent natural teeth. If a tooth is lost through an accident or too badly decayed to save with a crown, a bridge may be a treatment of choice.

Dental Implants

Implants replace missing teeth. They are placed in the gums and fill up the space created after a tooth is lost. They look and feel like natural teeth.

Dental Extractions

There are several reasons why a tooth may need to be removed: extensive damage (via decay or trauma), periodontal (gum) disease, to prevent complications (eg via infection), to improve appearance (as part of orthodontic treatment), it has no function (its opposing partner has been removed), vertical cracks in the tooth. We have state-of-the-art equipment to minimise discomfort and maximise healing. Majors Bay dentists are all experienced in extractions and will discuss your treatment in-depth.

Mouthguards

Mouthguards are an essential part of the uniform for many sports these days, including football, hockey, and basketball. And it’s essential that they are properly fitted to prevent broken teeth and other facial injuries. At Majors Bay Dental we can fit and create your mouthguard, ensuring you’re ready to play as quickly as possible.

Teeth Whitening

Stains on teeth can be classified in one of two ways: extrinsic or intrinsic. Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains live between the microcracks in your enamel and deep within your dentin (the layer of your tooth underneath your enamel). Whitening toothpaste and mouth rinses may be able to remove some of the extrinsic stains on your teeth. But only teeth whitening agents can remove the stubborn extrinsic stains and the unsightly intrinsic stains that cause your teeth to look discoloured.

Teeth Whitening can lighten the colour of the teeth. It is safe procedure when done by a qualified dentist. Whitening may not be suitable for all cases. It is recommended to have a check-up and clean prior to your whitening treatment.

Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-coloured porcelain (ceramic) shells cemented over the front of your teeth to change their colour or shape. Veneers are excellent for treating chipped, discoloured, oddly shaped, slightly misaligned or gaps between the teeth.

At Majors Bay Dental we use only the finest materials to deliver smile transformations that last for years.

Root Canal

If the nerve of your tooth is damaged, your options include removing the tooth, or Root Canal Therapy. This involves cleaning out the nerve from a small space in the centre of the tooth, disinfecting it and sealing it up. This can effectively save or prolong the life of the tooth. It is recommended that a Crown is placed over the tooth to protect it after Root Canal Therapy is completed. Majors Bay Dental will clearly explain the procedure to you.

Wisdom Teeth

The ‘third molars’ or Wisdom Teeth, usually appear in our gums around the late teens/early 20s. In many cases, they cause no problems at all. In some cases, if the jaw does not have enough space for the tooth to emerge, the tooth will become wedged in or ‘impacted’. In this case, they may need to be extracted or removed.

Wisdom teeth removal is a relatively simple and easy procedure if performed by a trained and experienced dentist.

Anxious Patients

If you are afraid of dental procedures or prone to anxiety we offer Penthrox inhalers. Penthrox is a revolutionary inhaled pain relief product which will provide you with immediate pain and anxiety relief. Penthrox is the combination of an inhaler device and a pharmaceutical agent that has been used in Australia for over 30 years by healthcare professionals for the provision of immediate pain relief. You are in control of the level of your relief, simply by inhaling Penthrox through the Penthrox Inhaler.
