A cosmetic dentistry consultation with one of our Clifton Hill Dentists will help you decide the best approach to achieve your ideal smile.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Getting a whiter and brighter smile is one of the least invasive and least expensive cosmetic dental treatments around. Many people appreciate how quickly it can the look of their smile—particularly if they are preparing for a big day and want whiter teeth for a wedding, reunion or other event.

Teeth bleaching products seem to flood the shelves of salons, spas and shops these days, but the results from store-bought teeth whitening products can vary. Many of the generic over-the-counter products seep onto the gums, causing sensitivity and often result in less than stellar outcomes.

There are several reasons why patients tend to be happier with teeth whitening at our Clifton Hill, VIC dental clinic over products purchased in shops.

  • Since a dental professional supervises your treatment, we can use a more potent concentration of whiteners for faster, more dramatic results. We also protect your gums and the soft tissues of your mouth so most patients report minimal sensitivity after teeth whitening treatment at our Clifton Hill, VIC dental clinic.
  • Our take-home whitening kits include customised trays that we make by taking moulds of your teeth. A custom fit prevents the whitening gel from seeping onto your gums and causing irritation and also provides more even, consistent results than over-the-counter products.
  • You can relax after having professional teeth whitening, knowing that you are with an experienced dental professional in case you experience sensitivity or have any questions after teeth whitening treatment.

We offer both in-house and take-home teeth whitening options depending on our patients’ goals for their smiles. In-house teeth whitening at our Clifton Hill, VIC top dentist will provide up to several shades of improvement in about one hour in the dental chair.

Take-home teeth whitening utilises custom trays to keep professional-strength whitening gel where it belongs—on your teeth. Trays are reusable for touch-ups any time your smile needs a boost.

Tooth-Coloured Dentistry

Until recent decades, dentistry usually left a mark on your smile. Modern fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants and veneers now blend in with your smile using modern tooth-coloured materials such as ceramic and composite. Our dentists will custom match the shade of your dentistry to your natural teeth for a seamless result.

Tooth-coloured fillings provide a natural look for taking care of tooth decay. The fillings blend in so well, no one will know you even have a filling. Made of a composite material, tooth-coloured fillings at our Clifton Hill, VIC dental clinic are strong and durable. They are less likely to cause tooth fractures as do metal amalgam fillings.

The same material we use for tooth-coloured fillings is also ideal for a procedure we call cosmetic dental bonding. Dental bonding at our Clifton Hill, VIC dental clinic is great for making repairs to teeth—even at the front of the mouth. If you have a gapped, chipped or cracked tooth, cosmetic bonding is a quick way to make the repair to restore your smile—and you can usually have the procedure completed in just one visit to our Clifton Hill, VIC dental clinic.

Dental bonding can be a more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers for fixing small imperfections in your smile.

For teeth that have more extensive damage, a dental crown can restore the form and function. Dental crowns are made to match the look and colour of the adjacent teeth, and they can restore a tooth that has been damaged so that you can chew on it again. Dental crowns are often used to strengthen a tooth that has been weakened by a root canal.

Dental Veneers for Beautiful Results

For cosmetic procedures, tooth-coloured restorations can improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers, specifically, can improve the shape, colour, uniformity and alignment of teeth in a single procedure.

Veneers come in both chairside composite and lab-created ceramic depending on patient preference and needs. Chairside immediate veneers are a faster and more affordable solution. Ceramic veneers provide greater durability and superior aesthetics.

Many of the perfect smiles you see on your favourite celebrity are the result of cosmetic dental procedures such as veneers.

Cosmetic Braces with Invisalign

Misaligned teeth can impact your appearance, which is why many people opt for clear braces to improve their smiles. In many cases, Invisalign clear braces are a logical first choice when planning for cosmetic improvement to your smile. Properly aligned teeth are easier to restore, more comfortable and functional and can give your smile the boost you want.

We Welcome You to Get in Touch

If you have questions about Invisalign clear braces, veneers, teeth whitening, dental crowns or any cosmetic dentistry procedure, we would love to hear from you. We will arrange a cosmetic dentistry consultation with one of our dentists to help you decide on the best treatment for the future of your smile.
