Because everyone deserves a picture perfect smile

Cosmetic dentistry and flawless smiles are not reserved for Hollywood stars alone. That’s why Hills dental care provides a wide range of dental procedures to restore and beautify your teeth, including:

  • All-porcelain veneers to create a stunning, bright smile.
  • All-white zirconium crowns to create the perfect hybrid for amazing colour and strength. They look like your natural teeth every time.
  • Dental bridges to close gaps and provide you with extra teeth for both function and aesthetics.
  • Dental implants to create extra teeth and close up gaps where you have lost teeth, or support dentures and bridges.
  • Bone regeneration/harvesting, including block grafting and sinus elevation and grafting to build up bone mass required for implants.
  • Full mouth reconstruction individually designed to meet all your desired results and custom made using some or all of the above procedures.
  • Anti-snoring devises created especially for your mouth to help you have a peaceful night’s sleep.
  • Custom made night guard (also known as a bite splint) to help protect your teeth and relieve pressure on your jaw joint.

Dental Crown

Dental crowns are used for a broad range of dental restoration work. They’re essentially a “cap” which are affixed to either a dental abutment or over an existing tooth.

Crowns are used for a range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments such as:

  • replacing a missing tooth or to affix dental bridges
  • providing extra support and strength to weakened teeth
  • restoring teeth that are excessively worn or broken
  • concealing severely discoloured or misshapen teeth

Your crown is colour-matched and shaped to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, and made from high-quality materials for strength and durability.

Dental Bridge

A bridge may be recommended if you are missing one or more teeth. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause your remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint disorder (pain and dysfunction of the muscles that move the jaw and the joints which connect the mandible to the skull).

Bridges are commonly used to span the space where one or more teeth are missing. They’re cemented to either your natural teeth, or implants surrounding the empty space, which are called abutments and serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth, called a pontic, is attached to crowns that cover the abutments.

Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be created to match the colour and shape of your natural teeth. Your dentist can help you decide which to use based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost.

Dental Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over your tooth surface either to improve the aesthetics of your tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. Made from either a composite or dental porcelain, they’re fitted to your existing teeth using a resin cement.

Dental Veneers Before & After

Veneers are an important tool in cosmetic dentistry allowing your dentist to restore single teeth which may have been fractured or discoloured, or multiple teeth to create a ‘Hollywood’ style makeover.

Multiple veneers can:

  • close spaces between teeth
  • lengthen teeth which have been shortened by wear
  • provide uniform colour, shape and symmetry
  • make teeth appear straighter
