Know about Cosmetic dentistry Brunswick
Cosmetic dentistry or aesthetic dentistry is part of our everyday dental practice.
If you live in Coburg or Brunswick, cosmetic dentistry may be for you. Cosmetic dentistry can take many different paths and often there are more than one way to achieve your desired result.
It may involve a complete smile makeover which is a new smile usually using a combination of various techniques and technologies so that your smile is designed to look better in many ways including the colour, shape , size and arrangement of your teeth.
It may be orthodontic treatment to align crowded teeth, widening a narrow smile, close gaps, reduce “bucky” teeth or eliminate crowded or overlapping teeth. Our dentist Dr Matthew Siebel has over 10 years experience in providing high quality orthodontic treatment. His training started with some of Melbourne’s pre-eminent orthodontists and he then completed 2 years of intensive training with world renowned Dr Derek Mahoney. As a general practitioner he has the ability to combine his orthodontic skills with other cosmetic dentistry treatments.
It may involve a course of whitening teeth with either take home whitening or our in-house, one visit, Zoom® whitening.
Other techniques include laser treatment or facial injectables to reduce a gummy smile, or change the length or shape of teeth.
The replacement of missing teeth with implants, bridges or dentures can be a complex treatment. Dr Jeffrey Kestenberg, a general practitioner with a Masters degree in prosthodontics from the University of Melbourne has over 35 years of experience in teaching and treating patients at Melbourne University, the former Prince Henry’s Hospital, Monash Medical Centre and of-course at Coburg Dental Group. He has also lectured all over Australia and internationally.
With Dr Siebel’s and Dr Kestenberg’s qualifications and training it’s easy to understand why they love doing cosmetic dentistry in Brunswick and Coburg.
A smile makeover usually involves at least the top eight or ten teeth and sometimes the lower eight or ten teeth too. First we do a thorough assessment and then we produce a mock-up of what your smile can look like as we plan your treatment together. The most frequent treatments used in cosmetic dentistry are tooth whitening and multiple porcelain veneers because they are the most conservative of all the choices highly aesthetic and natural looking.
However, porcelain crowns, bridges, implants and even implant supported dentures can also be part of a smile makeover depending on the case. If upper teeth only are being treated with veneers or crowns, then lower teeth are usually whitened at the very least to blend in with the changed top teeth.
