ONE thing dentists can do is improve your smile.
For example, a long-time patient who wanted to improve his looks came in to visit Dr Tony Tai Dental Clinic on Collins Street
He chose to have crowns made for his four front teeth – just one of the many options available ranging from veneers to implants.
The result completely changed his appearance and gave him the confidence to smile again.
This year marks the 21st year since Dr Tony Tai, pictured, opened his dental practice in Hobart CBD.
Originally from Hong Kong, he studied in Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom and practiced for 20 years before calling Tasmania home.
To lengthen the life of one’s teeth, it is essential to have a good cleaning regiment.
Alongside a check-up and clean by a dental professional every six months, this will ensure you stay on top of your dental health.
There are 262,800 minutes of usage every 6 months, with constant rebalancing of pH levels.
By visiting a dental professional, they will check for cavities, gum condition and notify you of any potential problems.
Dentistry is an ever-evolving study, so it is helpful to seek advice from your dentist so you have up-to-date cleaning methods and instruments, and can stay out of the dentist’s chair for longer.
Modern technology has helped make treatment easier and more accurate.
In Dr Tai Dental Clinic, they have microscopes, digital x-rays and other modern instruments on hand to make sure your treatment is successful and comfortable.
