What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

If you have yellow-tinged or crooked teeth, cosmetic dentistry can remove stains, straighten teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Clifton Hill Dental is a comprehensive dental practice that offers various services, including cosmetic dentistry. 

Cosmetic Dentistry Focuses on Improving Aesthetics 

Cosmetic dentistry primarily focuses on the appearance of one’s teeth, gums, and overall smile. 

Here are some of our favourite cosmetic dentistry treatments at Clifton Hill Dental.

#1 Veneers 

Veneers are thin shells of material that cover the front surface of a tooth. Veneers are highly versatile and can correct multiple aesthetic flaws, including:

  • Chips, cracks or fractures
  • Discolouration or staining 
  • Small gaps between teeth 
  • Crooked or uneven teeth 
  • Teeth of irregular sizes, lengths or shape

With veneers, you can attain a Hollywood-calibre smile in no time. 

#2 Tooth-Coloured Bonding 

Tooth-coloured dental bonding uses composite resin, just like tooth-coloured fillings. The bonding material matches the natural shade of your teeth, so it blends in with your smile. We use aesthetic dental bonding to repair or cover chips, cracks, fractures, discolouration and misshapen teeth. 

#3 Dental Crowns 

Our custom-made dental crowns cover decayed, broken or damaged teeth. A dental crown protects and strengthens a natural tooth and can last for many years, even decades. They can also stabilise one’s bite and cover dental flaws, such as discolouration or misshapen teeth. 

#4 Invisalign Clear Aligners 

Invisalign clear aligners use leading-edge technology to correct malocclusion, straighten teeth and align one’s bite. With Invisalign, patients wear the clear plastic aligner trays over their teeth, and the trays gradually move their teeth into the desired position. Clear aligners are metal-free, so they’re discreet, and there’s no need to worry about metal wires or brackets detracting from your smile. 

#5 Professional Teeth Whitening

Unlike store-bought whiteners, professional teeth whitening is personalised to meet your unique needs and goals. Our in-house and take-home teeth whitening treatments can lift dental stains and brighten dull teeth. Our in-house whitening option can provide up to several shades of improvement in about an hour, allowing us to upgrade your smile instantly. Our take-home teeth whitening involves wearing custom trays with professional-strength whitening gel on your teeth, which you can use to maintain your results or do touch-ups.
