Courtney Dental celebrated the Melbourne Cup at the Townsville RSL again this year, the team always has such a fantastic time spending the day together. This year Craig won the in house sweeps, while Jason won 2nd best dressed.
In case you haven't noticed, here at Courtney Dental we are massive fans of the NRL. We love showing support to our local team, the North Queensland Cowboys and during the origin series we support the Queensland Maroons. If you come into the practice during football season don't be surprised to see us supporting our favorite teams, by wearing fan shirts, decorating the practice and talking about the game. Occasionally one of our teams members will support an opposing team, we accept this rivalry begrudgingly, they are welcome to wear their own teams colors, as long as they accept teasing when their team loses. Last week Bernie forgot to wear his Cowboys jersey and had to wear the pink cowgirl hat of shame. He won't forget again anytime soon. Though we thought he looked very cute.
We are excited about the upcoming Origin series starting this week. Go QUEENSLAND!
Did you know we offer a professional denture cleaning service here at Courtney Dental.
When wearing dentures it is important to care for them and keep them clean just as you would with natural teeth. Plaque and calcium deposits build up on dentures just as quickly as natural teeth in the mouth.
Did you know that tooth decay grows? It starts off as a small white lesion and over time continues to grow until it becomes a cavity/hole. Caught early enough you can manage or even reverse an early lesion to prevent needing a filling. Left too long, and eventually the decay will eat through the entire tooth. This process can happen very quickly. Simply put, the longer you leave decay, the bigger and more expensive the problem gets.
As always when it comes to your teeth, prevention is better than cure. The best way to keep your smile looking bright is to avoid consuming staining substances in the first place. And if you've just undergone teeth whitening or are thinking about seeking it in the future, avoiding stains can help you get the most out of your treatment.
So what can cause teeth to stain?

Interest-Free Payment Plan with Zip Money or Afterpay
Afterpay is a digital payment system that allows for flexible interest-free payments online and in-store. For Courtney Dental, Afterpay allows our patients to pay for treatments on the same day (a maximum cost of $1,500) and for the payments to be split into four equal installments over an eight-week period.
How does Afterpay work?
When getting a filling/restoration done there are choices over what material can be used. White composite, silver amalgam, porcelain or even gold. They all have their advantages and disadvantages, and in some cases we have to use a particular material for the area we are restoring. Read below to learn about the different types of dental restoration materials.
