Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry for a Smile Makeover
Through a combination of modern dental science and artistry a dental makeover can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. at our clinic we aim to provide individualised smile enhancement solutions that are long lasting, in terms of aesthetics, comfort and function.
A makeover usually implies a ‘quick fix’ to a cosmetic problem, and whilst a smile makeover can often be achieved in a reasonably short period of time, our cosmetic dental team focuses not only on ultimate aesthetics, but also your overall dental health for the best possible long term results.
Based on the individual needs of patients, our dental makeover procedures can include teeth whitening, straightening or complete restoration to transform and refresh your look.
SMILE MAKEOVERS WITH COSMETIC DENTISTRY
The ultimate goal of cosmetic dentistry is a smile makeover that dramatically improves the appearance of your smile. The type of cosmetic dental treatment required to achieve a beautiful smile varies and depends on the specific problem, existing health of teeth, the degree of improvement sought and patient expectations.
There can often be a number of alternatives to an aesthetic problem but the key to a successful smile makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic assessment and treatment planning by an experienced cosmetic dentist. Taking into consideration factors such as your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth features, gum tissue and lips your cosmetic dentist will customise an appropriate dental treatment plan to realistically achieve your desired result.
Your dental makeover can be achieved with any single or combination of procedures described below:
- TEETH WHITENING
Teeth whitening or bleaching is a popular and simple way to improve teeth appearance. All whitening products contain peroxide, which dissolves organic stains in the tooth resulting in whiter, brighter teeth. While tooth whitening is an effective treatment for removing stains, in some instances it may not produce the desired result. It’s best to consult with one of our cosmetic dentists to determine whether teeth whitening is an effective procedure for you.
- PORCELAIN CROWNS
Dental crowns are tooth shaped caps made of porcelain. They provide a protective cover over a compromised tooth, permanently restoring its shape, size and strength.
- PORCELAIN BRIDGES
A porcelain dental bridge is used to restore one or more missing teeth. The dental bridge spans the space where the tooth or teeth are missing and is cemented to the natural teeth or implants on either side of the gap.
- PORCELAIN VENEERS
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic laminate shells that are bonded onto the surface of your teeth, improving the shape, colour, size and overall appearance.
- TEETH STRAIGHTENING
Teeth straightening can be achieved with Invisalign No Braces Teeth Straightening treatment. Invisalign are clear, removable aligners that help straighten and move teeth closer together over a period of time. To ensure you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists is required. Alternatively, conventional orthodontic treatment may be recommended as the most appropriate option to straighten teeth where ther is a more severe case of maloclussion.
- DENTAL IMPLANTS
Dental implants are the most advanced treatment option for reliably replacing individual or a segment of missing teeth, as well as full set teeth replacement that that look, feel and function like natural teeth and in as little as 2-3 days. Dental implants have become an optimal standard of care for the total rehabilitation of either upper or lower teeth, or both, especially for denture wearers, or those who have badly deteriorating teeth and want to avoid wearing a plate.
- GUM LIFT OR GRAFTING
Healthy, even gums are essential for framing your teeth and giving you a more balanced and beautiful smile. We call it ‘Gingival Choreography’. For those who have excessive gumlines or uneven gums, surgical or laser gum reshaping treatment can be performed to correct a gummy smile.
- INTERMEDIATE SMILE ENHANCING SOLUTIONS
Our resident cosmetic and implant dentists often provide intermediate aesthetic solutions prior to completing a smile makeover. Doing so allows us to fine tune the final aesthetic solution to ensure predictable individualized results. Having our own aesthetic dental laboratory helps not only with quality control, but also improves patient experiences with a most streamlined process.
