At Precious Medical, we provide a range of dental services in Singapore, including general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign treatment, dental implants, and more.
Childhood & Adolescence
Introduce children to dentistry early to give them a positive start to dental care. Preventive dentistry may include fissure sealants to protect new permanent teeth and fluoride coatings to prevent decay. Assess jaw development to plan for braces if needed. Decay should be treated early with high fluoride fillings.
Wisdom teeth may require removal typically between the ages of 16 and 21.
Our approach is to restore your dental health using minimally invasive techniques, preserving as much of your natural tooth as possible. Modern technology now allows tooth coloured porcelain fillings or “inlays” to be done to replace lost tooth structure conservatively.
If the decay is extensive, root canal treatment can be performed to preserve the tooth, and extraction done only when necessary.
A smile is the first thing you see when you meet a person. In this day and age, how we look is very important for our social life and confidence. It is not merely about vanity as it also affects our personal and professional relationships.
The position of your teeth and jaw affects the contours of your face and the fullness of your lips. A dental adjustment can improve your overall appearance.
Whether you wish to whiten your teeth, change their shape, size or alignment, re-sculpt your gums or adjust the bite, we are committed to helping you gain the look you wish for. Listed below are the different techniques our dentists may use:
Porcelain Fillings, Veneers & Crowns
Laser Teeth Whitening
Reshaping & Resizing Teeth
Gum Sculpting & Recontouring
With time, our teeth may become discoloured due to smoking, food stains and some medications. We can lighten the colour of your teeth through laser whitening. If the stains are very deep, porcelain veneers or crowns may also be used.
We offer effective teeth straightening solutions for patients of all ages, including braces and removable teeth aligners such as Invisalign®. For older patients, porcelain veneers and crowns can also be used to close gaps and modify facial proportions.
Titanium Dental Implants
If teeth are extracted due to decay or as the result of an injury, implants may be used to replace the missing teeth. The current surgical techniques and intravenous sedation may reduce pain and the final result can replicate nature in both function and appearance. The process comprises two stages: the surgical placement of a titanium implant, and the delivery of replacement teeth, after a healing period of 3-6 months.
When teeth are missing or extracted, the jawbone in which it is anchored to can be lost as well.The overlying gum also recedes, reducing the amount of support for the face and lips. This often creates an aged appearance. As bone is required to place implants, there is a need to “grow back the bone”. Thankfully, even if teeth have been lost for a long time, implants can still be placed after regenerating the jaw bone using a combination of bone grafts and special membranes.
Temporary Crowns & Bridges
In some cases, a missing tooth can be replaced with an implant and a temporary crown on the day of the extraction, if the remaining bone is sound. However, the adjacent teeth are often needed to support a temporary bridge to close the space. With the current computer assisted techniques, we are able to place the temporary bridge shortly after the surgery. Once the new bone is fully formed and the healing process is complete, permanent crowns can then be fixed.
