But if you are like many people, you may not be. The talented team at Northmed Dental have many different techniques to shape, sculpt, and make your smile more beautiful. With a few simple steps, you can have a smile you feel great about. Cosmetic dental treatment may be more affordable than you think.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing crooked teeth? Perhaps you have jaw aches because of a misaligned bite. If you’ve been self-conscious about your smile and want to do something about it, then Invisalign may be just what you are looking for. If you are looking for a highly recommended Invisalign dentist in Northcote, look no further than Northmed Dental. Using a proven and modern approach to straighten your teeth, Invisalign helps you say goodbye to traditional metal braces and get the smile of your dreams without the inconvenience and discomfort. There is no need to go to an orthodontist, because our certified Preferred Platinum Providers can provide an affordable full course of Invisalign treatment right here in Auckland’s North Shore.

Invisalign is also known as clear braces because they uses custom made, clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth. Time tested and proven over decades by dentists and orthodontists, Invisalign is a great option for most teens and adults looking to get straighter teeth. Invisalign works by slowly realign your teeth and bite over a period of time. Your customised aligners get changed out every few weeks, to carefully adjust your teeth with ease and comfort. Each new aligner tray is custom fitted to your mouth, making slight adjustments to your bite to straighten your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

A stunning smile helps to improve your appearance and enhance your self-confidence. At Northmed Dental, we have been helping the residents of North Shore get a dazzling smile with the use of  porcelain veneers. Our dental team has become known as your trusted source for excellence in dental care.

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic fix for many common dental concerns such as crowded or gappy teeth, short teeth or severe staining. Veneers work by covering your teeth with porcelain shells. When done by an experienced hand, porcelain veneers can transform the look of your smile in just a few office visits.

After your treatment, people will notice the transformation in your smile, but it’s not obvious to most that you have porcelain veneers because they look like your natural teeth. In most cases, you will only need to visit our office two or three times to complete the procedure. Most patients have their new smile in place in less than two weeks.

Veneers are an incredible yet conservative option to enhance your smile. They can create a beautiful smile that will last for many years without extensive treatments like orthodontics that can take several months to a few years to complete.

Teeth Whitening Service

A bright, white smile is associated with youth and vitality, making it one of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments. At Northmed Dental, we know how important it is to have a brilliant smile. We offer teeth whitening as part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Enamel on your teeth can become stained for reasons that include:

  • Advanced age.
  • Dental trauma.
  • Certain medications.
  • Coffee, tea, and red wine.
  • Foods with strong colours.
  • Chewing tobacco.
  • Smoking.

Teeth enamel is porous, which means it can absorb the color of dark foods, drink and other substances such as nicotine. Whitening helps erase these stains, allowing you to still enjoy your hot coffee in the morning or that glass of wine with dinner while maintaining a white smile.

When you contact our practice for a free smile assessment, you’ll be able to get an idea of how white your teeth can look. Our professional tooth whitening solutions have the ability to make an amazing transformation of the appearance of your teeth.

Dental Crowns

A crown is used to completely cover or “cap” a tooth that has been damaged. A crown when placed over a damaged tooth strengthens the tooth while improving its appearance. Crowns come in a variety of materials to match the colour of natural teeth. Dental crowns and bridges are a proven and reliable solution for correcting major dental issues caused by accidents or damage from wear and tear. If you’ve had a dental trauma, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, crowns and/or bridges can be used as a long-term restorative solution.

Dental crowns have many benefits, including:

  • They look like your natural teeth.
  • Fixes functional chewing problems.
  • Strong replacements for damaged or worn teeth
  • Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth.

Restorative – Dental Implants

A dental implant is made with an artificial titanium root and post which is surgically placed into the jaw bone. Dental implants are an excellent option to replace one or more missing teeth. Compared to false teeth or bridges, dental implants are a popular and time-tested long-term solution for old and young people who suffer because of missing teeth, failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth, and are quickly becoming the new standard for tooth replacement.

There are many reasons our patients consider dental implants including:

  • Permanent alternative to dentures / false teeth.
  • Improvement or restoration of chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Replaces missing teeth and help to support the jaw structure.
  • Restores a smile.
  • They look and feel just like your natural teeth.

Emergency Dental Services

Children’s Dental Services

As an adult, you understand the benefits of having a check and clean twice a year. It’s also important for your children to have a regular checkup as well. By the time your child has their first birthday or when their first tooth appears, we recommended that your kids have their first dental exam. We offer the highest quality dental care for our patients, no matter their age. We provide a fun, calming, “kid-friendly” environment for your children. Our staff enjoys working with children and we make every effort to ensure that your kids feel safe, relaxed and comfortable.

By building good teeth cleaning habits and having regular visits to the dentist, it’s beneficial to their long-term oral health. We’ll show your kids how to properly care for their teeth and even provide sealants for an added layer of protection for their teeth.

We take the time to personalise their dental appointment so that it’s an enjoyable and comfortable experience. During the appointment, we’ll do a careful and gentle examination of the teeth and gums, to detect any developmental issues as early as possible.

Most children from year 9 up until their 18th birthday are eligible to receive free dental treatment. These dental services are funded by the Ministry of Health. Many parents and children are unaware of this free service! If you want to learn more or schedule an appointment for your child, call our friendly dental team today.
