Preventive dentistry

Together we will work out the best check up interval for you, usually between 6 and 12 months. At each checkup our general dentists at Chermside Family Dental carefully examine each tooth, your gums, jaw joint and soft tissues. We give you advice to ensure you know how to best care for your teeth because at Chermside Family Dental, we care for your family’s smile!

Our tips for maintaining healthy teeth
  • Eat well balanced healthy meals. Limit snacking between meals and keep sugary and acidic foods and drinks as a treat.
  • Brush and floss your teeth twice a day and use fluoridated toothpaste. The fluoride helps protect your teeth against acids and sugar.
  • Drink lots of water, especially fluoridated water.
  • Regular dental check-ups at Chermside Family Dental allow our dentists to help you improve your dental health by cleaning your teeth and identifying potential issues.
  • Who is spoiling your kids rotten? Dob in the sugar bandit!

At Chermside Family Dental, fillings are placed to help restore or rebuild worn, damaged or decayed teeth. This is an important treatment for both adult and baby (deciduous) teeth. Fillings nowadays are generally white, using composite resin. With an adhesive tooth coloured filling (white fillings) we are able to match the filling to your tooth shade, resulting in an aesthetic cosmetic white filling.

Examples of when a crown may be beneficial for you:
  • Appearance improvement: badly discoloured or misshapen teeth can be rejuvenated with a crown to improve your smile.
  • Strengthen a cracked tooth to prevent crack lines progressing further.
  • Situations when a filling isn’t suitable for the tooth, this could be due to the size of the filling required as the material is stronger.

A root canal treatment can be necessary when the nerve of your tooth becomes infected, resulting in toothache. A root canal treatment removes the pulp and we place a filling material within the canals of the tooth to fix the toothache and keep the tooth in its place. This process usually takes a few appointments. Afterward the root canal treatment, you tooth will need a filling or often a crown to allow you to use the tooth normally. At Chermside Family Dental we will help you decide whether a filling or crown is best for your tooth after a root canal treatment.

Crowns and veneers

Crowns and Veneers are ways of restoring your smile with a strong and aesthetic material. You might find that some dentists get the crowns fabricated overseas. At our practice we ensure our technicians are based locally so that we can be sure of the strength and suitability of the treatment that we recommend for you. We are fortunate to work with a great dental technician in Brisbane. Crowns may be made from a highly aesthetic all ceramic material which is very strong, or may have a underlying metal framework with porcelain overlying this for an aesthetic result.

When a crown or veneer may be beneficial for you:
  • Appearance improvement: badly discoloured or misshapen teeth can be rejuvenated with a crown to improve your smile.
  • Strengthen a cracked tooth to prevent crack lines progressing further.
  • Relieve the sensitivity of a cracked tooth.
  • Situations when a filling isn’t suitable for the tooth – this could be due to the size of the filling required.
  • You’ll find that the surface of the crown will be smooth and easy to clean.
