Welcome to Lowood Dental,

General Family Dentistry

Our experienced staff at Lowood Dental can cater to your entire family’s needs, from young children to the elderly. We believe prevention is better than a cure and our aim is to prevent unwanted dental problems through patient education and regular hygiene appointments.

We believe it is important for patients to be actively involved in their oral health, from good hygiene habits at home to making informed decisions on treatment. For this reason, we strive to ensure our patients are thoroughly educated on all treatment options available and let you select the treatment course that best suits your overall needs.

If you do find yourself with a dental problem, our highly skilled dentists are ready to help!

White Fillings

White (or composite) fillings are a cost-effective way to repair a damaged tooth. Composite fillings are more cosmetically appealing than previously common amalgam (metal) fillings. They also have many other benefits, including:

  • Less sensitive to temperature
  • Able to restore most of the original strength of a tooth by bonding the filling with the actual tooth, preventing fractures in the long term
  • Less natural tooth structure is removed in preparation for a composite filling than an amalgam filling
  • Can be used to mask permanent stains, close gaps or reshape teeth to be more aesthetically pleasing
  • Teeth that have been significantly compromised may benefit from additional strengthening by a porcelain onlay or crown. While these types of restorations are a larger financial investment, they are much stronger and longer lasting than composite fillings. Early detection can be the difference between a small composite filling and a larger porcelain crown.
  • We would love to see you for a check-up before problems arise so we can help you avoid unexpected or costly treatment. Give our friendly staff a call to make an appointment.

Veneers and Crowns

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great way to improve stained, crooked or chipped teeth. This treatment involves bonding a thin porcelain coating to the front surface of your chosen teeth, resulting in a bright, straight and natural-looking smile. Porcelain veneers are durable, easy to maintain and stain resistant.

Crowns

Teeth that have been significantly compromised can benefit greatly from the strength and protection a crown provides. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped, porcelain ‘helmets’ that are custom designed for each patient and restore the integrity and aesthetics of the tooth.

Composite veneers

For minor chips, cracks and discolouration, filling material (composite) may be all that is required to achieve a healthy smile. This treatment is faster and more cost-effective than traditional porcelain veneers.

At Lowood Dental, we invest the necessary time and effort to achieve optimal results creating the smile you’ve always dreamt of. So, if you find yourself hiding your smile, come in for a chat and let one of our friendly dentists help give you the confidence to show off your pearly whites again!

Implants and Missing Teeth

Dental implants replace the root of a missing tooth and once restored, look and function just like a natural tooth. They are suitable for not only single teeth but can also be used as an anchor for multi-unit bridges or a full set of dentures for those who find it hard to keep their dentures in one spot while eating and speaking!

Dentures

It is always preferable to keep your own teeth. However, if you are in a position of needing to replace one, two or even all of your teeth, dentures are a cost-effective way to restore your smile and increase the functionality of your molars. Depending on individual needs, they can be made with either a cast chrome (metal) or an acrylic (plastic) base.
