Cosmetic dentistry options

By July 14, 2020News

We have treated many patients who are looking for Cosmetic Dentistry Essendon and they know it’s worth the short trip to our clinic at Coburg Dental Group.

Firstly, we need to explain that the Dental Board of Australia does not allow us to use the terms ‘cosmetic dentistry’ or ‘cosmetic dentists’ but we know what you mean. This might seem strange to you but the Board does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as being a special branch of dentistry.

So what are the options available at our clinic?

Several choices are available when it comes to smile enhancement, and the right course of treatment will depend on your specific needs. Sometimes we need to combine 2 or 3 of these options in to one treatment plan.

You may already have an idea about how you could improve your smile, but if you aren’t sure about which options will work best for your situation, one of the experienced dental professionals at Coburg Dental Group will be happy to discuss your options and the procedures in more detail.

Just some of the treatments to consider include:

Teeth whitening

Numerous things can contribute to teeth becoming stained and yellow or grey, including drinking tea, coffee and red wine, smoking, the natural ageing process and genetics. Luckily, there are a number of ways which we can whiten your teeth to bring your teeth back to a bright white colour – such as light enhanced treatments known as Zoom whitening and whitening gels.

Dental implants 

Dental implants are a suitable solution for permanently replacing one or more missing teeth. Even though they are artificial, they are aesthetically pleasing and can be placed so that they give you the look and feel of natural teeth. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last for many years.

Porcelain veneers

We provide plastic, ceramic or porcelain veneers to improve a smile within a few visits, whether you need to straighten teeth or have a compromised appearance due to a cracked tooth or dark teeth colour.

Composite bonding

Composite bonding is a method by which a tooth coloured filling material is attached to a tooth and can help to repair fractured, chipped, decayed or discoloured teeth in a single visit only. The method involves roughening the area that needs to be repaired, etching the tooth surface by using a gel and painting with a bond material before the tooth coloured filling material is applied.

Dental bridges

A bridge is a permanently fixed dental restoration for replacing one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth to the adjacent teeth or implants.

Dental crowns

A crown, also known as a dental cap, is a dental restoration that completely covers or caps a tooth or an implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity compromises the health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth and can be tooth coloured or gold.

Tooth contouring

Usually a quick and simple process, recontouring of a tooth involves a combination of filing and polishing to smooth out minor chips and pointy teeth, as well as reshape teeth that have been worn down.

Gummy smile correction

Most people consider the perfect smile to feature mostly teeth with very little of your gums showing. Treatments are available to correct a low or uneven gum line. The procedure can involve lasering the gum to lift the gum line or injecting the face with an injectable medication to lower the lip smile.

Mercury-free dentistry

Although amalgam fillings were one of the most common options for repairing decayed teeth, they are rather unsightly. If you need a new filling, or are considering getting your old amalgam fillings replaced with something less noticeable, white ceramic or plastic fillings are ideal for maintaining a great smile.
