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.
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.
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.
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 .

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.

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.
