Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain composite that are specially designed to match the shape and colour of natural teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to restore worn and broken teeth and to fill in unwanted gaps. Veneers are extremely versatile and can be used to align crowded or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour. A veneer is a new front surface for a tooth, custom made from porcelain. Their strength and appearance rivals that of natural teeth and they are used to make long lasting changes to the smile.

At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, we can even use porcelain veneers as “instant orthodontics” to straighten the appearance of a misaligned smile without the need for braces. The porcelain veneers application process is quick, convenient, and comfortable. With porcelain veneers from Old Bawn Smile Clinic, patients can enjoy a dramatically refinished smile in as few as two office visits.

A dental crown is a permanent and natural-looking way to repair teeth that are badly damaged by chips, cracks, decay, or other factors. Unlike veneers, which only cover the front of a tooth, crowns are fitted over the entire tooth. Porcelain crowns are the strongest, most durable dental crowns available today. In addition to improving the functionality of damaged teeth, porcelain crowns also provide natural looking restorations. The porcelain crowns used at Old Bawn Smile Clinic are custom-crafted to closely match our patients’ teeth in colour, texture, and lustre, so their restored smiles will look flawless and beautiful.

Crowns are used to restore severely broken down teeth. Most crowns are made of porcelain, like veneers, and look natural, leaving no black line at the gum level as seen with some traditional crowns.

At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, we can use dental bridges to fill in gaps created by missing teeth. Dental bridges are artificial teeth that are permanently held in place on either side of a gap by a crown or dental implants. While many patients do not see the need to replace a missing tooth if it is not immediately visible when they smile, a gap created by a lost tooth can cause surrounding teeth to shift and allow bacteria and decay to thrive. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth, adding support to surrounding teeth and improving overall oral health, function, and aesthetics.

Missing teeth can be replaced with implants or bridgework. Great results can be achieved by combining the latest advanced materials and gum management techniques to make replacement teeth appear to emerge from the gum like a natural tooth.

At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, Dr. Ada Murphy and our teams can combine any number of dental treatments to create a full smile makeover. When solutions such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, bonding, and even orthodontics are used together, the results are absolutely stunning. We can also implement these techniques in conjunction with restorative dentistry procedures to improve the function and integrity of the mouth. In just a few visits to our comfortable office, patients can enjoy renewed self-confidence with a brand-new smile!

When the whole dentition is broken down, there is considerable tooth surface loss and/or multiple missing teeth, then a full mouth reconstruction may be required. This will normally require every tooth to be restored often with a combination of veneers, crowns, implants and/or bridgework. At Old Bawn Smile Clinic we have considerable experience and expertise in bringing together the various advanced dental disciplines that are require to recreate full dentitions so that not only do they look great but they function correctly, are healthy and will last for many years to come.

Some patients teeth can look small because there is too much gum covering them. Now, for those clients with low or uneven gum levels, a laser gum reshaping treatment can be performed to correct.

Healthy teeth that have yellowed with age or stained from coffee, red wine, food stuffs or smoking usually respond well to whitening. Whether you choose in-chair whitening system, or a more economical home whitening kit, the effect is equally good. Top-up gel is supplied to maintain the result. Patients can choose the method that best suits their needs. Stains and discolourations shouldn’t keep patients from smiling; with the teeth whitening solutions now available at Old Bawn Smile Clinic, it has never been easier to achieve a dazzling bright smile.

The Inman Aligner, a new cutting edge procedure, can straighten front teeth in a fraction of the time of conventional orthodontics. The initial treatment can be completed in 8-12 weeks. Minor crowding can be corrected in 8 weeks or less.

The Inman Aligner is bridging the gap between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry, a new cutting edge procedure, can straighten front teeth in a fraction of the time of conventional orthodontics and is not so expensive. The initial treatment can be completed in 8-14 weeks.

Dental implants are the ideal permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures and partials, which can be uncomfortable and require regular maintenance, dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants are actually fused to the jaw bone with titanium screws that act as artificial tooth roots. When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant onto which natural-looking, crown or bridges can be attached. Implants can help to preserve surrounding and opposing teeth better than any other tooth replacement option. Our team at Old Bawn Smile Clinic can see patients through the entire implantation process, sometimes without the need to refer them to another practice.

The first step to a great smile is maintaining excellent oral health and hygiene. It is always better to prevent problems than to deal with them after they begin to cause pain or discomfort. In order to keep teeth strong and beautiful, we feature the latest in diagnostic technology, as well as modern treatments for cavities, decay, and bacterial infection. Our talented oral hygienists always take the time to give each patient a thorough examination and dental cleaning, and then work with the patient to develop a healthy oral hygiene routine to follow at home. With regular check-ups and routine oral care between visits, we can help patients keep their smiles healthy and brilliant, both now and for years to come.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dentures are a good option for many of our patients who are missing multiple teeth. Many people think that dentures have been left behind in the cosmetic dental revolution, it’s not so! In fact, using the latest technology and techniques, cosmetic dentures can not only restore your smile but take 20 years off your whole face!

We can create dentures that look natural in relation to our patients’ facial features. At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, we make it a point to ensure that all of our patients with dentures are well-educated on the proper ways to care for their dental restorations, so that they may enjoy their replacement teeth for many years to come.

Using a composite resin that is custom coloured to match the unique shade of patients’ real teeth, Dr. Murphy and the team at Old Bawn Smile Clinic can fill in gaps and repair teeth that are worn, broken, or chipped. Dental bonding is an effective way to reshape and recontour the teeth, and is especially useful in cases where more extreme restorations, such as porcelain crowns or veneers, may not be necessary.

Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth's surface. It can be used to restore minor chips and close small gaps, often completed in one appointment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With modern technology, we can render fillings that are practically invisible. Damaged teeth can be fitted with a resin composite that is specifically designed to match to colour of natural teeth. Tooth-coloured fillings are particularly beneficial for repairing cavities in the front teeth, where restorations can be more noticeable. Patients who are ready to remove their unsightly metal fillings, or would like to repair their teeth with only the most modern and aesthetically-pleasing materials available, should contact us today to schedule a consultation.

There are a number of tooth coloured amalgam-free filling materials available. The most suitable options for your teeth are discussed and recommended during your first appointment.

This is a quick and simple way to reshape and tidy your smile. Cosmetic contouring works well to smooth minor chips, reshape pointy teeth or redefine teeth that have worn flat.

Cosmetic contouring is a quick and relatively simple process. Minor contouring and polishing can smooth small chips and fractures, reshape pointy teeth and redefine flat or worn teeth.

Cosmetic contouring involves minimal discomfort and although only a subtle procedure, sometimes the smallest changes make a big impact. When combined with tooth whitening it’s often a great way to rejuvenate your smile.

At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, we employ state-of-the-art technology to help us make our patients’ visits with us as comfortable and convenient as possible. From advanced laser diagnostics to pain-free drilling with air abrasion, the modern amenities at our practice will help us give patients the most positive dentistry experience, from start to finish.

  • Air Abrasion
  • HealOzone®
  • DIAGNOdent®

Air Abrasion

With whisper-quiet air abrasion, our patients no longer have to suffer through the uncomfortable noises and sensations associated with traditional drilling and tooth preparation. Air abrasion is a revolutionary process that allows our dentists to use a fine, pressurized stream of powder instead of a drill to gently remove decay and damaged enamel from a tooth’s surface. We can also use air abrasion to remove stains, repair old fillings, and even prepare teeth for new restorations and cosmetic dentistry solutions such as porcelain veneers. Because there is no vibration or high-pitched noise with the air abrasion handpiece, our patients remain comfortable for the duration of their treatment, in most cases without the need for any anesthetic.

HealOzone®

HealOzone® is another non-invasive method we use to treat cavities and kill bacteria in our patient’s teeth. With HealOzone®, we can apply ozone gas to a decayed tooth, which kills bacteria and helps make the tooth more resistant to future decay. We can also use HealOzone® to sterilize cavities before the application of fillings and as part of root canal treatment. Because this treatment uses a painless gas to treat cavities and decay, it is ideally suited for our younger patients, as well as those who suffer from dental anxiety.

DIAGNOdent®

At Old Bawn Smile Clinic, we use the most modern technology to promote our proactive approach to dentistry. Why wait to treat small cavities until they become big problems? We have the tools to detect decay much earlier than was ever before possible.  DIAGNOdent® is an advanced diagnostic aid that uses laser energy to help us discover decay at its earliest stages. With DIAGNOdent®, we can use light energy to conduct safe, non-invasive, and painless diagnostic examinations. This allows our dentists to treat problem areas much sooner, saving our patients time, expense, and valuable tooth structure.
