Sometimes cosmetic dentistry is required but it’s having the expertise to diagnose why there is a problem in the first place that matters. This allows our expert staff to offer the right solution for you to not only give a shining result, but also to get to the bottom of why the problem eventuated.
As you get older, the colour of your teeth can change due to your diet or your tooth enamel becoming thinner. Professional teeth whitening can significantly lighten the overall shade of your teeth, making them visibly brighter and enhancing your smile. Our dentists will examine your teeth and gums to make sure that a whitening procedure is an appropriate solution to your discolouration problem.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns restore a tooth’s original shape, size and colour by covering the entire tooth surface down to the gum. Crowns protect and strengthen an existing tooth structure which cannot be restored through fillings or other methods. A crown protects and strengthens the existing tooth structure, completely sealing out bacteria so the underlying tooth is protected.
A dental bridge is an effective technique to repair multiple missing teeth in a strong, natural way. The teeth adjacent to the gap in your teeth will be shaped to have crowns fitted. These crowns support the bridge, which is cemented in place to rest on your gums. The bridge holds more crowns to replace you missing teeth, giving you a strong and stable restoration that will enable you to bite and chew as normal.
Veneers are a superb solution for fixing small imperfections and can completely transform your teeth and smile. They are often an effective alternative to crowns and represent a massive innovation in cosmetic dentistry and are a strong, functional and aesthetically pleasing restorative technique.
Inlays and Onlays are a cosmetic dentistry technique we use to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Inlays are an ideal alternative solution to fillings, particularly when a patient has a large cavity in a tooth. Onlays, on the other hand, are an ideal alternative to crowns as they require the removal of less tooth structure in the preparations phase.
Appropriate and expert referrals for best solutions
Our duty of care is first and foremost to our patients. If we identify that a patient requires a cosmetic dental procedure that is beyond the scope of our practice, or requires collaboration with another specialist, we have built relationships with a large network of colleagues over many years, and will refer patients to the best candidate to ensure that you get the best results for your dental problem.
