Fix my smile
Cosmetic Dentisty can be required for a range of reasons, including having yellow teeth, stained teeth, a dark (dead) tooth, discoloured fillings, uneven teeth, gaps between teeth and crowded teeth.
Talk to us about how we can help you achieve a smile you love.
Fix my broken tooth
Teeth break either from trauma such as a collision, or because there is a weakness in the tooth already. Dental decay is caused by bacteria, but also teeth can become weak after having large fillings over a lifetime.
Fixing teeth early can prevent bigger problems, such as toothache.
Children need a lot of attention to help them feel comfortable at the dentist.
Our dentists and therapists have special training in working with kids. Kids love the free computer games and the prize box too!

What is the dentist going to do?
Our dentists are professionally trained to provide quality dental treatment. We start by asking about your health and dental background so that you can let us know if there any special circumstances we need to be mindful of. The dental visit will start with a check up where the dentist may take some Xrays. From here the dentist can discuss with you what is going to be needed at a future visit, and the anticipated costs. If there is time to do a cleaning or a filling then this could also be part of the first visit.
For more information on services we provide, click here.
At the end of the appointment you can ask for a written quote at no extra cost, so a plan can be created. We encourage our patients to return every 6 months to have a checkup and cleaning.
We happily accept ALL Health Funds. Some will charge a gap and others are gap free. Payment is required on the day.
Do you have any anxiety about going to the dentist?
Never fear, Happy Gas is here!
It's normal to have a little anxiety about going to the dentist. Most of this it is related to the fear of the unknown. Is it going to hurt? Will the dentist smell my breath? How much damage is actually in my mouth?
Rest assured, our trained professionals do this every-day and we have pretty much seen it all before. So don't get self conscious even if its been decades since your last dental visit.
We try our best to make the experience as pain free as possible. Our dentists have a soft touch and will only progress with anxious patients when the patients are ready. We use numbing gel before the needle, and sometimes we can work without a needle.
Happy gas is also available at a fee of $75 per session.
Regular check-ups can prevent major problems
We all know we need to look after our teeth, so what is stopping you?
“I have no problems.” Don’t wait until it’s too late. Dental health needs regular maintenance, just like your car needs servicing.
“I don’t have time to go to the dentist.” Bytes is open 6 days including late nights on Thursday evenings.
“It’s gonna hurt.” Neglected teeth can often cause more discomfort than maintained teeth. We aim to make your experience comfortable, and we have numb gel!
“It costs too much.” Surprisingly, regular maintenance will actually save you money compared to expensive treatments that can come when teeth are neglected.
Our TEAM is ready to help!
We are a team of dedicated professionals committed to helping all of our patients today and into the future. We have a stable base of local dentists, some of which have been with the practice over 10 years. Our support staff are eager to help, bringing a smile to the workplace.
