Becoming a New Patient at the Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry Centre
The Cosmetic and Laser Dentistry Centre provides first class dental care in a comfortable, relaxed and caring environment, while providing the very latest in technology.
During your first visit we will perform a comprehensive dental examination. Prior to the examination, we ask you to fill out a confidential questionnaire. This questionnaire will give us detailed information that may be relevant to your dental health and allows us to gain a better understanding of your overall general and oral health. If there is any other information that you feel is important for us to know, it can be discussed during your appointment in the strictest of confidence. Should you wish to complete our questionnaire prior to your appointment then you can do so by printing the PDF document below:

Your comprehensive examination will involve:
Facial Analysis: Symmetry, smile line, aesthetic appearance and posture
Soft Issues: Cheeks, palate, throat, tongue, floor of the mouth and lips
Assessment for any signs of pathology: tumours, cysts and oral cancer
Assessment of the chewing joint (TMJ) and associated muscles: disorders of this joint and the surrounding muscles can often lead to debilitating headaches, earaches, tooth wear and bite collapse
Periodontal (gum) assessment: gums form a supporting system for our teeth. Undiagnosed gum disease is the most common cause for tooth loss in the adult population
Hard tissue – teeth: Integrity of teeth, existing restorations, vitality, cracks, position in the mouth etc
Smile analysis – if requested: How happy you are with your smile, does your smile match your face, does your smile age you, is your smile aesthetically pleasing?
In order to be empowered to make choices for yourself, you need to have a fundamental knowledge of the current condition of your mouth.
Following the examination, based on your desires and goals, a personalized treatment plan will be designed to suit your specific needs. All the available treatment options will be discussed with you, so that you can make a fully informed decision. If need be, a financial plan can be provided.
Our aim is to fit your care into your lifestyle as smoothly and comfortably as possible.
