Cosmetic Dentistry Melbourne

While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of a person’s teeth, mouth and smile. Many people turn to cosmetic dentistry, or ‘aesthetic dentistry’, as a way of improving their appearance. They do this in the same way they might use cosmetic surgery or even a new hairstyle. The treatments can be used to straighten, lighten, reshape and repair teeth. Cosmetic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, tooth-coloured fillings, dental  implants and tooth whitening.

Current Cosmetic Dentistry Trends Offered By Us

    • Inlays/Onlays: Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place by your dentist.
    • Crowns and Bridges: Natural looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Since they are custom made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower bite.
      Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on top a tooth. They are used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance after a process such as root canal therapy. They are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, preventing a cracked tooth from becoming worse or to protect an existing filling that has become loose.
    • Teeth Whitening: Perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee, tea or red wine) or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile.
    • Dental Veneers: May be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth, stained teeth, discolored fillings and chipped teeth. Veneers have a long life expectancy and colour stability than bonding, as well as being stain resistant.
    • Dental Implants :Are artificial tooth replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance. Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants. For a successful implant, a candidate must have a strong immune system and proper bone density. Strict oral hygiene is required.
    • Smile Makeover: Involves a comprehensive assessment of your smile esthetics in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening, will be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve the look you want.
    • Full mouth reconstruction: While consulting with you about a smile makeover to primarily improve the esthetic appearance of your smile, your dentist may discover that there is a need to provide necessary treatment to correct functional problems with your bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure. If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available today make it possible for your Holistic dentist to provide you with durable, functional and clinically sound treatments that also look natural.
    • Invisalign: A great way to straighten your teeth. Without braces. Invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that will give you a beautiful straight toothed smile. No one can tell you are wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers.
