Smileplus - Gold Coast Dentists
Your smile says a lot about you and cosmetic dentistry can make substantial improvements to every kind of smile. There are techniques to deal with discoloured, chipped, gappy, crooked or missing teeth and it’s not as costly as you may think.
Cosmetic dentistry is the field of dentistry dedicated to the art and science of enhancing a person’s smile and overall appearance, resulting in a better self-image and a sense of well-being.
New technologies have made a beautiful smile more affordable and more attainable than ever before.
The latest developments in dentistry include tooth whitening treatments, bonding and veneers. These techniques can whiten and improve the shape and colour of your teeth, even close gaps.
Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth by changing the shape of the teeth, by changing the colour of the teeth, by masking stains and by replacing small fractured pieces of teeth.
Thanks to advancements in modern dental care, a variety of options are available to help any person have a dazzling new smile more easily today than ever before.
An increasingly popular procedure, veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made laminates that are affixed directly on to the teeth. They are a great option for changing the colour, shape, size and position of teeth in only two visits. They are crafted from tooth coloured material that realistically simulates pristine enamel without the tell tale black line of old fashioned crowns.
Also sometimes called a cap, a crown is a tooth like covering placed on a prepared existing tooth. This treatment is highly recommended if the patient has insufficient tooth structure on which to place a filling. It is also recommended for strengthening root canal treated teeth and protecting cracked/fractured teeth.
An option to replace missing teeth and fill in gaps. A fixed bridge attaches artificial teeth to adjacent teeth by placing crowns on either side. Bridges have a number of advantages including restoring your natural bite, enhance your chewing function, prevent unnatural stress on other teeth and enhancing your smile.
This procedure removes excess gum tissue from the front teeth of people who have “gummy smiles”. Removing a little gum can dramatically improve someone’s smile and this is all the treatment they made need while others may chose to have whitening or veneers. This procedure can be done under local anesthetic.
A replacement for dentures, implants are a stronger, more attractive option for replacing missing or lost teeth. A tiny cylinder is placed in the patient’s jaw bone and a life-like ceramic restoration is built around it and matched to the original tooth colour. Whether it is a single tooth replacement or a complete set of teeth, implants look, feel and function like natural teeth.
