TUESDAY 26TH OF FEBRUARY 2013
Our case of the month for February is a wonderful cosmetic dental transformation using invisible braces called lingual braces. These are braces fitted to the inside of the teeth so they are the truly invisible brace.Being placed on the inside of the teeth, they act down the long axis of the tooth meaning that teeth straightening can also be very quick. Straight teeth fast! What more could you ask for?Our client came to us seeking a new smile due to crooked upper front teeth, which had been bothe…READ MORE

Mercury is a toxin.3. Mercury is continuously released from metal fillings via a vapour form.4. Metal fillings do NOT stick to teeth, they are mechanically wedged in to place.5. Metal fillings require the tooth to be cut deepe…READ MORE

Teeth straightening is now a very popular treatment to improve the cosmetic appearance and why not!If teeth are crowded, out of alignment, suffer from spacing issues then they should be treated with orthodontics such as invisible braces.One of our most popular invisible braces is the lingual brace. This is placed on the inside of the teeth making it the truly invisible brace. If the thought of fixed braces on the outside of your teeth fills you with fear, then this is the solution for you.Dr Nis…READ MORE
