Gum treatments

At Refresh Dental Care we can treat a range of cosmetic gum problems. The appearance of our gums can cause teeth to look uneven or crooked or you may see more gums than teeth when you smile. You don't have to hide your smile because you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth or gums. Gingival recontouring is a great way to treat a "gummy" smile. By trimming and adjusting the gum lines around your teeth we improve the general appearance of your smile, enhancing the size and shape of your teeth to a more desirable result.

There are many different reasons why we might choose to perform a gum treatment. Gum recontouring is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure with instant results and a short recovery time. It is done under local anaesthetic, so the whole procedure is virtually pain free. There is no need for stitches and your gums heal very quickly.

Don't hesitate to get in touch to schedule a consultation with Dr Jeff Agius to find out what the most suitable treatment might be in your case.

Facial injectables

Dentists have a profound understanding of complete facial aesthetics and a great smile is more than just perfect teeth. Fuller lips and smoother features are ways to make sure that your beautiful smile is framed by a symmetric and youthful face. 

Dento-facial injectables are a great way to enhance or rejuvenate your features. By considering how how the entire structure of your face affects your smile Dr Jeffrey Agius will make sure that your best features are subtly enhanced without interfering with the integrity of your looks.

Dr Jeffrey Agius has completed extensive training in facial injectables and already has the advantage of knowing how the intricate muscles of the face work. 

The treatment usually lasts from 6-12 months but can last for up to 18 months for some patients.

At Refresh Dental Care we can treat everything from wrinkles, frown lines, crows feet, thin lips and much more.

Dentures

We are able to provide you with full or partial dentures as a solution for missing teeth.
The materials that our dentures are made from include acrylic, chrome or the new flexible Valplast®, a lightweight, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing denture solution. Valplast® is virtually invisible because there are no visible metal clasps and the material itself blends with the tissue in your mouth so that you can make the most of your natural smile.
Should you have a problem retaining dentures, we are able to offer implant retained dentures to provide you with the comfort and support you need.
Removing your dentures at night will allow your gums to rest after supporting your dentures all day and during meals. It’s important to place your dentures in water or denture solution to prevent them from drying out, as this can cause them to change shape and affect the fit and comfort.
When you have missing teeth, the contour of your gums can change over time therefore you will need to have the base relined from time to time so your denture still fits securely and comfortably. Also mouth cancers and ulcers can occur under your dentures and go undiagnosed for some time. Attending regular dental visits enables your dental practitioner to ensure your mouth stays healthy.

Crowns & bridges

At Refresh Dental Care we now offer crowns in one visit, while you wait.

Crowns are one of the most versatile restorative solutions. A crown is sometimes referred to as a cap as it is placed over a carefully prepared tooth to restore strength, appearance and function.

A crown may be placed on a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy or where a large portion of the tooth has been removed. Treatment to repair a broken tooth may require a crown, as too a tooth that has lost a large filling or a heavily filled tooth to prevent it from breaking. When secured to teeth on either side of a space, crowns become the structural supports for a bridge. And when replacing a single missing tooth, a crown is the final restoration placed on a dental implant.

A bridge is a popular and effective replacement solution for missing teeth that can rejuvenate your smile and restore your oral health. A bridge consists of one or more false teeth, which are secured to natural teeth on either side of the space by crowns.
A bridge may also be secured by dental implants.
The procedure for a bridge is very similar to that for a crown.
Crowns and bridges require the same care as natural teeth.

Dental implants

A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is submerged into the jawbone. When dental work such as a crown, fixed bridge or a full set of dentures is added, one or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is fabricated from a very strong, biocompatible material placed in a simple procedure that, generally, is as convenient as a tooth extraction.After an initial healing period, during which the implant is buried in bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports the artificial tooth.The implant material is extremely biocompatible. The bone grows to the implant and bonds to it. This makes the implant very strong. The process is called ‘osseointegration’.Although there are several options for replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant is often or usually the most ideal solution. After careful treatment planning between your dentist and the local specialist who will place your implant, your dental practitioner will secure your restorative crown, bridge or denture atop of your new implants. Following this minor surgery phase, a sufficient period of healing will be required prior to the placement of your new permanent restorative crown, bridge or denture.
