FAQ’s

Silver amalgam fillings, which are composed of 50% mercury and 50% silver alloy, eventually need to be replaced. It may surprise you to know that the average life span of a silver filling is twelve years. Your dentist can tell you when they appear to NEED to be replaced due to leakage, breakdown or recurrent decay. If your concern is strictly COSMETIC, there are many new methods available to replace the fillings with beautiful, functional long lasting restorations. Such things as white filling materials (composites), porcelain inlays, crowns and veneers may be used to give you the smile you are seeking.

You are correct. There are many products and techniques available. Some work great and some don’t work at all. The various over the counter products give the least predictable results and may cause increased sensitivity due to the abrasive ingredients in the product. To get a really great result you should probably use one of the products sold through dental practices which utilize custom made trays for home application of a bleaching gel. We recommend a carbamide peroxide­based gel such as Polanight whitening gel. Besides giving a great result, this product has overcome the sensitivity problem seen with some of the other products . For more instant results, we would advise you to have an “in­surgery” treatment first at the practice and this comes with the free trays and gels that you can continue to use at home. Or you can just purchase the trays and gels purely for home treatment. Please speak to our helpful receptionists for further information and appointments

This is a good question, which we hear daily. The brand of the toothbrush is not nearly as critical as the type of bristle, the size and shape of the head and how frequently you replace your brush.

  1. We recommend a soft bristled brush with a small head. The soft bristles are most important for the health of your gums. A small head allows you to get around each tooth more completely and is less likely to injure your gums.Daily frequency of brushing and replacement with a new brush are much more important issues than the brand you choose.
  2. We recommend replacing your brush at least once a month.
  3. My employees and I all brush, on average, 3 times a day. We brush first thing in the morning, after each meal and at the end of the day. If you are not able to do this because of your busy schedule, we recommend brushing twice a day.

5 star Though I live on a different continent, Dr. Kushal has been a family friend since the beginning of time. Being a dentist here in the US, and swapping dental stories when we all met in the UK, I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Kushal! If I lived there in Australia, I would definitely be a patient there!!!! Looking forward to your many years of success!!! Cheers!

No longer scared of the dentist. If your looking for a local dentist try Arca in Currambine. I love how they don't do anything drastic unnecessary and i felt very well looked after PLUS it didn't cost me an arm and a leg- so i now have no excuses not to have a check up regularly! Feeling relaxed now....excuses not to have a check up regularly! Feeling relaxed now....

A relaxed and kind dentist, and lovely assistant. They had a large TV where they played my favourite music on youtube, while they cleaned my teeth. A great experience!

Well had an unexpected visit to dentist today so looked up on Google who to go to . Went to ARCA that was local and my experience was amazing right from reception to dentist Ms. Bolton and even assistant . I get very anxious at the dentist due to many years of orthodontic work , they made me feel comfortable and understood my fears . Didn't cost an arm and a leg either . Very happy customer here and highly recommend them.
