General Dentistry

Your family's  general dental clinic in Perth

At TLC, we believe in implementing general dentistry solutions that will set you up with healthy teeth for life. We have a focus on attention to detail, treating each and every one of our patients with the upmost care, and ensuring a comfortable, yet professional experience for the whole family. Expect a warm and welcoming environment at either of  our world-class dental facilities.

For more than 30 years, TLC has been treating a simple dental check-ups or dental x-rays with the same respect and care that we do an intensive dental surgery. Our highly trained team of dentists, nurses, hygienists and oral health therapists deliver comprehensive dental solutions by utilising state-of-the-art equipment with a human-centered approach, resulting in a relaxing, yet technically advanced environment.

We offer a wide range of common dentistry procedures.

In addition to strengthening damaged teeth, dental crowns and bridges which can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment, is another procedure that is high-in-demand at all of our clinics. Any gaps that are left by missing teeth can cause the remaining teeth to shift, which can result in a bad bite. Our dental crowns and bridges help prevent this from happening.

TLC’s highly skilled team of dentists are more than capable of performing root canal treatment that removes the damaged area of the tooth, while cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. We know how unpleasant this situation can be and strive to create a relaxing environment and comfortable procedure.

Dental fillings close off gaps where bacteria can enter and ensure that your teeth stay healthy by preventing any further decay. Trust any one of our highly trained dentists to do this with ease and comfort.

Our hygienists and oral health therapists take a preventative approach to dental cleaning and will make sure that you leave any one of our clinics well-informed and up-to-date with the best dental health practices that can be implemented at home. And of course, your mouth will be left in an immaculate condition, just keep it that way!

Both practices have Air-Flow™ technology for gentle removal of biofilm, stains and young calculus.

Our fluoride treatment helps to prevent tooth decay by making your teeth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque, bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It also reverses early decay and sets the foundation for a sustainable, healthy set of teeth.

We offer a wide range of common dentistry procedures.

Fillings

Dental fillings are restorative materials used to repair teeth damaged by cavities or minor fractures. During the procedure, the dentist removes the decayed or damaged part of the tooth, and then fills the cavity with materials like composite resin, amalgam, or porcelain. The filling restores the tooth’s function and prevents further decay. Composite fillings match the natural tooth color, making them aesthetically pleasing. Amalgam fillings are durable and cost-effective. Porcelain fillings are custom-made and provide excellent durability and aesthetics. Dental fillings are a common and effective way to treat tooth decay, preserving the tooth’s structure and promoting oral health.

Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support replacement teeth (crowns). They provide a sturdy and long-lasting foundation for dental restorations and can replace one or multiple missing teeth. After the implant integrates with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, creating a natural-looking and fully functional tooth replacement. Dental implants restore the appearance, function, and confidence of a complete smile and are considered a highly successful and permanent solution for tooth loss.

Orthodontics

& Sequential Aligners

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities, with a primary focus on aligning teeth and jaws to improve function, appearance, and overall oral health.

At TLC Dental, the expert dentists will carefully evaluate your dental condition to determine whether you require orthodontic treatment.

Root Canal

Treatment

Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is a dental procedure aimed at saving a severely damaged or infected tooth. During the procedure, the dentist removes the infected or inflamed pulp from the tooth’s inner chambers, disinfects the area, and fills it with a special material. This process eliminates pain, saves the tooth, and restores its function. Usually, a dental crown is placed to protect and strengthen the tooth after the procedure. Root canal treatment prevents the need for tooth extraction and helps maintain a healthy smile.

At TLC Dental, our experienced dentists provide this treatment if required, ensuring you receive high-quality care to preserve your natural teeth and oral health.

Fitting

Crowns

Dental crowns are custom-made tooth-shaped caps that are placed over damaged or weakened teeth to restore their strength, shape, and appearance. They can be made from various materials like porcelain, metal, or a combination. Dental crowns protect and support a tooth that has a large filling, undergone root canal treatment, or suffered significant decay or fracture. The procedure involves reshaping the tooth to accommodate the crown, which is then cemented in place. Crowns improve both the function and aesthetics of the treated tooth, allowing it to blend seamlessly with the rest of the smile.

Fluoride

Treatments

Dental fluoride treatment is a preventive procedure where a fluoride varnish or gel is applied to the teeth by a dentist or dental hygienist. Fluoride helps strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay caused by acids produced by bacteria. The treatment is quick, painless, and usually done during regular dental check-ups. It is especially beneficial for children and adults at high risk of cavities. Fluoride treatments can significantly reduce the risk of tooth decay and promote better oral health.

Radiographs

- X-rays

Dental radiographs, also known as dental X-rays, are diagnostic images used by dentists to assess and monitor oral health. These digital images capture the internal structures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding tissues, providing valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dental radiographs help detect dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, impacted teeth, and bone abnormalities. They aid in treatment planning and early detection of problems, leading to more effective and timely dental care. Digital dental X-rays release minimal radiation, similar to watching TV for a few hours, ensuring patient safety during the imaging process.

Professional scale

and clean or AirFlow®

Dental scale and clean, also known as dental cleaning or prophylaxis, is a routine preventive dental procedure performed by a dental hygienist or dentist. During the process, the dental professional removes plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth and gums. Scaling involves scraping off the hardened plaque (tartar) from above and below the gumline, while polishing helps remove surface stains and smooth the teeth. Dental scale and clean help prevent gum disease, cavities, and bad breath, promoting overall oral health and a fresh, clean smile. It is recommended to have this procedure done every six months as part of regular dental check-ups.

At TLC Dental we offer the option of a conventional scale and clean or a scale and clean with AirFlow® technology.

AirFlow® technology is a dental cleaning method offered at TLC Dental. It uses a mixture of water, air, and fine powder to remove plaque, stains, and biofilm from teeth and gums. The AirFlow® device delivers a gentle and effective cleaning action, reaching areas that traditional scaling may miss. It is more comfortable than traditional methods, and the procedure is quicker, making it a popular choice for patients. AirFlow® technology leaves teeth feeling smooth, clean, and visibly brighter, contributing to better oral health and a fresh smile.

 

Routine

Check-ups

A routine dental check-up is a regular preventive dental appointment with a dentist. During this visit, the dentist examines your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, or oral abnormalities. X-rays may be taken to detect hidden problems. The dentist also cleans your teeth, removing plaque and tartar buildup. The check-up helps identify and address dental problems early, preventing more extensive treatments in the future. Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental issues. It is generally recommended to have a check-up every six months, but the frequency may vary based on individual dental needs.
