What's Scaling & Polishing ?

My dentist always recommended his patient come for Scaling & Polishing , regular check- up a least twice a year to helps in keeping the gums and teeth healthier. If your gums start bleeding when your brushing the teeth the you need to come for this treatment.

After complete the Scaling my dentist will polishing removes Calculus Tartar Stains Tea Coffee or Cigarettes.

Scaling and Polishing are the terms used for teeth cleaning.

Cost of dental crown

E-max Ceramics

Look at the arrow you can see true the crown , so e-max crown can match with your nature toohth .
at the photo below look inside between e-max crown vs porcelain and metal crown, we can compare what is diffirence.
In the early days many of the patients who identified our practice with cosmetic dentistry knew about our Empress crowns. These crowns looked really cool and not only improved social lives, but career opportunities as well. Indeed, our "instant orthodontics" with Empress crowns have helped quite a number of people to look good in time for their job interviews and wedding photos.
However, even though Empress crowns have served us and our patients well, there were two problems. Firstly, Empress looks so natural because it has the translucency of natural teeth. However, if the underlying tooth has been discoloured, the darker shade will show through the material. Secondly, the strength of Empress II is only about 200MPa. In patients who have deep of heavy bites, the material may fracture. Empress bridges are known to survive only in the mouths of gentle users. With these limitations in strength and the lack of ability to mask underlying discolouration, Empress has failed to satisfy the needs of some patients.

The technology has moved on. Since early 2006, we have been using e.max for out crowns and bridges. The manufacturers of e.max are the same folks who brought us Empress. This material is said to look just as good as Empress, but with a strength of 400MPa, it's almost 2 times stronger. Not only that, this system can incorporate an opaque layer capable of masking underlying discolouration. The strongest all-ceramic material available is Procera with a strength of about 460MPa. However, it is much more expensive than Empress. The new e.max crowns cost only slightly more than Empress and are almost as strong as Procera. After numerous successful cases, e.max has been proven not only to function well as short-span bridges, the aesthetics are also as good as Empress.

So far, e.max has turned out to be as good as the manufacturer claims. We now recommend it as the material of choice for all our full ceramic crowns cases. If you have a fractured Empress crown, do consider redoing it in e.max. Each e.max crown costs S$800 .

Why pay more ???

Now a days, teenagers are busy with their work and studying, is hard to spend the time to the dental clinic for a check up. Some of them might be expect do one time scaling & air polishing can be whitened their teeth. Hello?! Scaling & polishing is just a way to clean your teeth.
Well, I found out that the marketing are selling those laser teeth whitening package since many years ago.

Many patients keep on calling and asked, does your clinic has Laser Teeth Whitening? My answer is no, but we have Tooth Whitening Kit (DIY Take Home Kit). So, they will ask what is different between Laser Tooth Whitening and DIY Take Home Kit. For me, I always recommended the patient to get a DIY Take Home Kit because it is much cheaper and the result not much different if compare to Laser Tooth Whitening. So why do you want to pay more for it?

D.I.Y Take Home Kit is only costs $400 only (laser whitening cost around $1,200 - $1,500) and most of patient will happy with D.I.Y take home kit. It is an affordable price. D.I.Y Take Home Kit is a very quick way to set up and whiten your teeth. It is also easy and convenience for you to use . It won't have any side effects on your gum after all. We will prepare one set of tray for you to fixing in your teeth, can you just need to put the gel on trays and wear it 2 times a day for hour, and its total 9 times (4 1/2 days). You can keep the tray for next time.

What is Carboxy Therapy…

Carboxy Therapy is the new simple and proven technique that can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite by improving local tissue metabolism and perfusion. Theatment are rapid, comfortable and efective for a high percentage of patients.

Before and After treatment

How does the carbon dioxide work...

Carboxy Therapy works in two complimentary ways. Firstly and quite simply cabon dioxide
mechanically kills fat cells, Secondly, it also has a strong vasodilatory effect (causes dilation of blood vessels) on the capillaries in the area. Wider vessels mean bigger and stronger blood flow to the area, which means more oxygen. The increase in oxygen is important because it elminates the built up fluid from between the cells. The end result is fewer fat cells and firmer subcutaneous tissue.
