The Dentist at Ace Dental Centre Auckland offers a variety of fillings to suit the individual need of the patient. Composite fillings and silver amalgam fillings are the most widely used filling materials today.
Extractions involve removal of a tooth from the mouth. We can perform:
Complete dentures replace your entire set of teeth. Complete dentures can be conventional or immediate.
Conventional denture -the patient's teeth are removed and after enough time has passed for the gums to fully heal, the new denture is fitted
Immediate dentures - no healing time is needed and the dentures are placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed.
Most teeth can be whitened with professional whitening treatments. The Dentist at Ace Dental Centre has a variety of tooth whitening systems for you to choose from.

Easy teeth whitening for those on the go
Orthodontics is the specialisation of dentistry, which deals with correcting the bite and arrangement of teeth, therefore improves the smile and function. Braces are appliances that the orthodontist uses to correct your bite. These braces are either fixed onto the teeth or rest against your teeth and bring about the desired movement of your teeth.
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that fit over the front or back teeth. Teeth with large fillings are weak and often break when biting. Teeth that have large decays or cracked teeth are also possible indications for crowns. A root canal treated tooth is very likely to crack or break and therefore a crown is often recommended.
A dental bridge can fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge uses two crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth (pontic) in between. These false teeth called pontics can be made from alloys, porcelain, gold or a combination of these materials.
Custom mouth guards
A mouth guard can prevent serious injuries such as concussions, cerebral haemorrhages, incidents of unconsciousness, jaw fractures and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw gets jammed into the upper jaw.
Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain facings that the dentist affixes to your teeth. Veneers can help brighten front teeth that have permanent stains or discoloration and can't be whitened. Veneers can also be used to treat slightly chipped teeth, mildly crooked tooth and to close small gaps between teeth. If you have healthy teeth and gums, but are unhappy with the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers might be right for you.
Root canal treatment is indicated when the nerve of a tooth is affected by dental decay or infection. Having a root canal treatment done on such a tooth is the only way to save it. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.
