Services / Treatments Offered
White Fillings

 

Do you want to change your amalgam fillings or have peace of mind knowing that you are getting white fillings?

  • We use only white fillings in our practice.

  • Our fillings are done using rubber dam/sheet which:

    • helps prevent water contamination leading to a better quality filling.

    • reduces the chances of you swallowing the amalgam as it is being removed.

    • Makes treatment more comfortable.

  • Filling fees vary from $175 -$375. Depending on the size & number of surfaces involved.

  • When a filled tooth structure is more than 50%, a crown is recommended as the integrity of the tooth is then compromised.

  • If the tooth structure has been weakened and a crown is too expensive, a composite crown can be placed but it is not as strong as a crown. Composite crowns $400 -$475.

 

 
Orthodontics (Braces)
  • We focus on orthodontics from an airway and tongue-space perspective.

  • As far as possible we try to do treatment non-extraction.

  • Please view the "Orthodontics" page regarding fees & more information.

RCT / Extraction

 

Do you have a toothache?

  • A toothache can sometimes be from a deep decay not involving the nerve. This may need either a dressing or a filling.

  • Root Canal Therapy is recommended when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected due to deep decay, a cracked tooth or trauma to the tooth.

  • At Huapai Dental Care - RCT treatments are done over 2 appointments to increase the success of the treatment, by allowing the infection to completely clear before sealing the canal.

  • RCT from $700 - $1225 including core filling. A core filling is stronger than a normal filling.

  • An alternative to a RCT is an extraction.

  • Extractions can increase the load on other teeth as well as change the bite as teeth move.

  • From $175 (mobile tooth) -$375 (wisdom tooth).

 
 

Crowns

Do you have cracked or broken teeth?

  • Crowns are recommended when there is a crack in the tooth, the tooth has been RCT treated or is heavily filled.

  • There are different types of crowns eg. porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or gold onlay inlay crown.

  • They are recommended to prevent the tooth from splitting or breaking.

Periodontal Therapy

(Gum Treatment)

Do your gums bleed or hurt?

  • Gum treatment is recommended when the gums are bleeding, infected or inflamed with more than 3mm pockets.

  • This is deeper than you are able to clean at home.

  • Gum treatment with us is generally over 3 appointments from $815 and thereafter requires a 3 monthly hygiene recall.
