Cleans and Check ups

Gum Treatments (Deep Cleaning)

Perhaps it’s been a few years since your last cleaning and your gums are really sore. You’re bleeding a lot while brushing and flossing, and maybe you’ve even noticed your teeth shifting. I think it’s time you’re evaluated for a deep cleaning or what we call a scaling and root planning.

Deep cleanings, can help alleviate many dental health problems by removing soft or hardened plaque from under the gum line, facilitating the healing of gums, and preventing tooth and bone loss and the spread of gum disease. After a full examination, accompanied by a full set of dental x-rays and full mouth pocket depth assessment, you will be scheduled to start your gum treatment (quadrant scaling and root planning). We normally suggest to split the procedure up into either two or four appointments, but you and Dr. Choi will discuss the pros and cons concerning your specific case. After full local anesthesia is achieved, a combination of ultrasonic instruments and hand scalers will be used to gently, yet efficiently rid your teeth of this harmful buildup.

Fillings

All of our fillings are done using only the very best bonding and filling material for your teeth. No more unsightly metal or mercury fillings. The decay is removed and the durable composite (white filling material) is bonded to the tooth and a high intensity UV light is used to set the filling.

 

Crown and Bridges

Crowns are full-coverage restorations that are used to cover a tooth that is likely to break or is too damaged to be corrected with a traditional filling.

Crowns are placed over your weakened or decayed tooth after they are reduced in size, to allow the crown to fit over the tooth like a thimble.

Although there are aesthetic benefits to this treatment, the main reason for placing crowns is to strengthen damaged teeth so they can withstand the large forces we exert on them when we eat. And thanks to the latest developments, crowns and porcelain crowns can now blend in seamlessly with your other teeth.

A bridge is an excellent way to replace a missing tooth. The teeth on either side of the missing tooth are crowned and a false crown is attached between them to replace the missing tooth.

Both crowns and bridges are extremely durable and require only the same care as your own teeth.

 

INlays and Onlays

At Boutique Dental Bondi in Bondi Junction we offer inlays and onlays. if you have damage or tooth decay within the cusp of a tooth. An inlay is used similarly to a traditional filling, but are a lot stronger and look more genuine. An onlay is necessary for a significant reconstruction, where it extends out over one or more cusps of the tooth. Often, inlays may replace traditional fillings that failed or fell out, since they are more durable.

If you have a larger filling, or perhaps a broken cusp on a tooth, we may want to consider a porcelain inlay or onlay! These restorations are a simple and effective treatment, and in some cases are an excellent alternative to a complete porcelain crown.

Dentures (Plates)

There are various kinds of dentures available, but all share a common function: replacing teeth that have become loose or lost. Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and can be either full or partial oral appliances. Natural, existing teeth may need to be prepared for dentures to fit properly. In some cases, teeth may need to be extracted and your mouth given a chance to heal before new dentures can be placed.

If you need a tooth taken out and don't want to be left with a space we can have a denture made ready so that it can be placed immediately after an extraction. 

There are many styles of partial dentures and one of our dentists can discuss which is the best option for you.

Even with dentures, regular dental check ups are still necessary to have your dentures examined and professionally cleaned. We can also help make sure your dentures still have a proper fit to prevent slippage and discomfort. And with any check up, one of the dentist's here at Boutique Dental Bondi will also examine the inside of your mouth to make sure it’s healthy.

Extractions 

We’re sorry, but in some cases you may have to get a tooth removed due to various issues. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. Whether it’s a wisdom tooth or a tooth that had trauma, it may be an unpleasant experience. However, at Boutique Dental Bondi in Bondi Junction, we will do everything we can to make this treatment as painless and forgettable as possible.

After having a tooth removed it can lead to issues relating to your ability to chew, your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which may have a major impact on your dental health. To avoid these complications Dr. Choi will discuss alternatives to extractions, as well as replacement options for the extracted tooth.

Nightguards

If you have problems with teeth grinding, clenching your teeth, or snoring, we can help improve your smile and help you get a good night’s sleep. At Boutique Dental Bondi in Bondi Junction, we offer mouth guards and night guards individually designed and customized to fit your mouth perfectly.

Without a guard, teeth grinding and clenching could be causing:

- Extreme Jaw Pain
- Eroded Teeth Surfaces
- Fractured Enamel
- Extreme Sensitivity
- Headaches

 

Mouthguards

Mouthguards are an essential item if you play any contact sports. They help to lessen the forces caused by blows to the head, helping to protect your teeth and jaw from fractures. All of our mouthguards are custom made for your teeth and jaw to ensure maximum protection.
