Cosmetic dentistry is generally referred to as any dental work that can improve the look of your teeth, gums, bite and overall smile appearance.
Teeth whitening is a popular treatment, but before you choose to whiten your teeth, it’s very important that your dentist determine if your teeth are suitable.
Because of various issues relating to gum and tooth sensitivity, as well as the presence of fillings, crowns and veneers, teeth whitening is not recommended for everyone.
Your dentist will discuss your needs, and if you’re a suitable candidate, make you a custom-designed bleaching tray to use with our professional bleaching product. We can advise on the various products available, which are the most safe and effective and recommended for you.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are crafted with tooth-coloured materials and cover the front of teeth.
Veneers can improve the appearance of teeth by changing their shape and colour, masking stains and replacing fractured pieces of teeth. They can also artificially make teeth appear straighter.
Veneers can be placed using composite resin or porcelain – it’s best to chat to your dentist to find out which option is best suited to you.
Orthodontic dentistry is the treatment of ‘malocclusion’, which literally means a ‘bad bite’.
Orthodontists realign teeth and jaws and traditionally use corrective appliances like braces, plates and other dental equipment. We can assess your dentition and if specialist treatment is required, organise your referral.
More aesthetic options to straighten teeth include ceramic and polycarbonate brackets (or braces), which blend in with the colour of the teeth, as well as lingual brackets and Invisalign.
Some simpler orthodontic cases may be able to be treated with mouth aligners.
