Smile Design

Smile Design

Genesis Dental aims to address your dental health, function, and aesthetics all in one, though we’ll always address health and safety first. A beautiful smile must be a healthy smile.

Our cosmetic dentistry services can improve the function, shape, and colour of your teeth. Each dental case is assessed individually, and your dental professional will aim to create a treatment plan designed specifically for you.

Dental crowns 

An artificial dental crown is generally the best option to restore a broken or badly damaged tooth that cannot be repaired by a normal filling. The laboratory-designed crown covers the entire existing tooth structure and replaces the natural crown of the tooth. Crowns are highly recommended after a root canal treatment to strengthen and protect the treated tooth.

Dental bridges 

A dental bridge is a fixed prosthesis in which two or more missing teeth are replaced. An artificial tooth is anchored to an adjacent natural tooth. This is normally the choice of treatment when a tooth is too badly decayed or damaged to be restored by a crown.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a very attractive option to replace missing teeth. If you’re considering options to replace one or more missing teeth, please speak with our dentists during your next visit. We’ll assess your particular situation and help you make the right decision about our dental services.

Veneers

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers, depending on the materials used) are purely cosmetic and an option for people who would like to improve their appearance. These laminates are very thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of the teeth. Using veneers, your dentist can change the colour and shape of top and bottom front teeth that show when you smile. Veneers may not be for everyone, but your dentist will be able to assist you with selecting the correct dental procedures for your needs.

Dentures

A denture is a removable dental prosthesis or plate, which basically consists of replacement teeth embedded in a pink or gum-coloured plate or frame. A full or partial denture may be inserted immediately after teeth have been removed, or after a period of healing has occurred.

Many people are surprised to find out that dentures also need a yearly check-up to make sure they fit correctly and to adjust them, as needed, for a secure and comfortable fit. Dental implants are quickly becoming an alternative to dentures, as they look and feel more like natural teeth. It’s important that your dentist assesses your particular situation to determine whether you are a viable candidate for implants.

Dental implants / supported prosthesis 

This combination of dentures and implants is sometimes a very good option to keep dentures secure and comfortable. Implants are placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal, then metal appliances are fixed to the surface of the gum. The dentures are inserted in place and can be removed as normal for cleaning. Consult your dentist if an implant-supported prosthesis is something you would like to consider, and to find out whether you can undergo this procedure.
