ENJOY A SPECIALIST
LEVEL OF CARE
At Sydney Prosthodontic Group, we don’t just treat teeth, we treat people! We understand that people don’t just want implants or crowns per se, they want functional and beautiful looking teeth to improve their lives, to improve their confidence, to eat whatever they want, to be themselves, to laugh out loud, and to live life to the fullest without being held back. Hence our motto, “improving lives, one smile at a time”!
From the start of your journey to completion, we plan and execute treatment with you in mind. Our focus is not only to achieve the best long-term outcome but also how to get you there in the most comfortable and ideal manner. We take into consideration your lifestyle, work commitments, social requirements, financial limitations and anxiety level. All aspects of your comfort and convenience are carefully considered and maximised throughout the process. This is one of the reasons why our patients are extremely satisfied with our services.
Our specialist prosthodontists offer a comprehensive range of personalised treatment solutions. Whether you are looking for treatment of a single tooth or of a full-mouth dental makeover, our prosthodontists will deliver the result that you envisage. There is often more than one solution to a problem in life and similarly with modern dentistry, there are many options. Our prosthodontists will discuss your individually-tailored treatment plan in detail, explaining the pros and cons of all treatment options in determining the plan that best suits your needs.
In this section we have listed a few common problems and treatment options that we offer. Please be mindful that not all options are suitable for everyone.
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells glued to the front surface of your natural teeth to improve appearance. This option can be used to address a number of cosmetic concerns including tooth shape, rotation, colour, length, width and gaps.
It should be noted that a strong tooth foundation is required for this option to last. If a large piece of porcelain tile was placed on sand, it would crack with ease when stood upon because the tile bends under pressure. However, when the same tile is properly glued to a concrete floor, the same standing pressure would not cause it to crack. The same principle applies for porcelain veneers. Careful assessment of the underlying tooth structure and anticipated bite force is essential to ensure you are a suitable candidate for this option.
All porcelain used is of the highest international quality combined with the best aesthetics. All porcelain veneers are hand crafted in Sydney by only the finest ceramists under Dr. Lee’s protocols. To ensure you are happy with your final smile, we adhere strictly to our following protocol which gives you and us ultimate control and a visualised outcome every step of the way. You get to see your final smile over 3 key stages before your treatment is completed. This is just one of the reasons why we are able to achieve your desired result every time.
Prosthodontists are the experts and the only recognised specialist in cosmetic restorative dentistry!
To improve your smile, a tailor made smile design must take place first as a trial-run before receiving the end result. This design can be made in one of three ways: digitally on a computer; carefully hand-crafted in your mouth using tooth-coloured fillings; hand-crafted outside the mouth on a duplicate model of your teeth using wax. Just like you would need a blue-print to build your house, this smile design process is our blue-print to create your smile. You are able to see and feel what your final smile would look like before any irreversible treatments are carried out. This gives you and us the control and confidence in knowing you are getting exactly what you want.
By combining expertise, artistry and experience, our prosthodontists can then recommend different materials and options to provide you with the best choice for each tooth to achieve your dream smile.
