Tooth Extractions

Dr Vaughan tries to avoid extractions as much as possible. Extractions are necessary for a very small group of patients and are performed at the correct age and stage of treatment. Wisdom teeth are assessed in each individual case.

Dental Growth


Many alignment problems are caused by incorrect habits such as thumb sucking or an incorrect swallowing action. In many cases simple exercises will allow growth to naturally correct the tooth positions.

Our State-of-the-Art Dental clinic in Newcastle provides the highest level of patient care and is honest in its treatment options.

Laser Dentistry


At Live Life Smiling, we do not limit ourselves purely to traditional techniques. We also employ recent innovations such as laser dentistry, which lets us work more efficiently and in sensitive areas with ease.


With laser dentistry- it’s all about the strength. By adjusting the technology to different wavelengths, the lasers can be used for a wide variety of different treatments including gum disease, sensitivity treatments and even stained or discoloured teeth.


This works by sterilising the area while the dentist works to prevent infection, as well as reducing bleeding and discomfort. You can experience the difference that this new technology makes by visiting our dentists in Newcastle for your next dental appointment.



We work with our patients to prevent many issues before they even develop, including by ensuring they follow recommended cleaning routines. That means attending your regular dental check-ups, brushing twice a day, and flossing.


Too many people forego these simple tasks, even though they are proven to massively reduce a whole host of complications such as gingivitis.


Better dental hygiene can also reduce your risk of developing diabetes, osteoporosis, and other health conditions. Our oral exams, X-rays, and teeth cleaning general dentistry services go a long way towards helping our patients prevent the onset of dental problems.

Crowns & Bridges


If you need a crown or bridge to reconstruct a damaged tooth, we can provide this while also making sure nobody notices the difference. We use innovations in dental technology to scan your mouth and avoid the need for impressions, letting us create a computer model of exactly the shape we need.


Whether you need a crown to cap your tooth or a bridge to fill in your smile, the experts at Live Life Smiling can help. Our state of the art equipment also allows us to produce the best results we can – and we truly believe our patients deserve the best.

Tooth Fillings


We recommend tooth filling when evidence of tooth decay is found on a routine check up. The dentist will remove the tooth decay found and will use a composite resin to fill the area to protect it from further decay.


The only way that you can know that you have tooth decay and need fillings is to have an examination by one of our Newcastle dentists, so make a booking with us for a check and clean for peace of mind.

Gum Disease Treatment


Our hygiene and dental services can remove the hardened plaque (also known as tartar) that leads to gum disease. If gum disease does start to present itself we give your teeth a through clean to take away the odourless layer of bacteria that builds up.


If gum disease progresses to the severe stage, there is a real possibility that you could lose your teeth. This is why preventative care and visiting your dentist for regular check ups is important. If you feel like you may have gum disease, give us a call and our team of professionals can assist with keeping your gums healthy.
