Maintaining your dental health as part of your overall health care plan has never been more important. However, Dr. Joel and Dr. Mark also believe that everyone deserves to have a smile they are proud of, and this is where cosmetic dentistry can provide solutions.
If you’re living with teeth that are chipped, crooked, or discolored, there is a cosmetic dental procedure that can help to restore your smile. Here’s some more information about some of the procedures your cosmetic dentist in Melbourne may recommend for you.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Sometimes all you need to boost your appearance is a brighter smile. You can achieve this in a simple and affordable manner with professional teeth whitening.
Brightening your smile has never been easier with the choice between an in-office procedure or a take-home bleaching kit.
In-office whitening treatment is ideal for the patient who needs fast results or has an upcoming wedding or another significant event. In less than two hours, you’ll leave our Melbourne dental office with teeth that are six to ten shades lighter.
A take-home whitening kit is customized just for you with plastic trays we make using impressions of your teeth. You’ll apply a high-strength whitening gel to your trays every day for about two weeks to achieve your desired results. Take-home trays give you the freedom to touch up your smile in the future whenever you like.
Porcelain Veneers and Crowns
Cosmetic imperfections like broken or chipped teeth can also be covered up with dental restorations, such as crowns or veneers.
A crown is designed to fit over your remaining tooth structure to closely mimic the shape and shade of your decayed or damaged tooth. A dental veneer is a super thin layer of porcelain that fits over your tooth and can change it’s shape, size, and color.
With innovative CEREC technology, Dr. Joel and Dr. Mark can create restorations like crowns and veneers here in our Melbourne dental office, so you don’t have to wait weeks to enjoy your new smile.
If you’re dealing with more extensive smile repairs, our dentists may combine both crowns and veneers to design your ideal smile.
For smaller cosmetic concerns like chipping or spaces between teeth, dental bonding might be a good solution. Using the same material that they use for tooth-colored fillings, Dr. Joel and Dr. Mark can bond the material to your teeth to cover cosmetic imperfections.
Dental bonding is a quick and non-invasive procedure that we can often complete during one appointment. It also tends to be less expensive than other cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers.
