Cosmetic Dentist Sydney
Most people feel that having a beautiful smile is important as it is one of the first things people notice. Because of this, it is becoming increasingly popular to seek treatment from a cosmetic dentist. Some people are unsure of how cosmetic dentistry can benefit them or maybe they want to know more about it because their dentist has referred them for a particular procedure or treatment. Keep reading now as I explain your treatment options…
Cosmetic Dental Procedures and Options:
One of the most popular and affordable types of treatment is getting teeth whitened which gives a white and bright look to teeth. It can really change a person’s smile to whiten teeth that have a lot of stains. This can occur from drinking beverages such as coffee, tea and soda. Certain foods, nicotine from cigarettes and chewing tobacco can also contribute to unwanted discoloration of the teeth. Some have discoloration due to hereditary reasons.
There are many teeth whitening products out there on the market; however, in office teeth whitening is the most effective compared to what can be purchased over-the-counter making it the best value for your dollar. Another thing to consider when deciding between in-chair whitening over a home teeth whiting kit is the benefit of having a trained dental professional take care of your oral health versus doing it yourself. A trip to the dentist for teeth whitening will ensure your safety and comfort.
CLEAR BRACES (INVISALIGN OR CLEARCORRECT)
For those who need braces but want metal-free teeth straightening, Invisalign and ClearCorrect are two options we offer. Some may have social concerns by having metal brackets and wires to straighten their smile. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are clear and molded to the teeth so one has the benefits of wearing braces, but it won’t be as obvious.
Teeth can be lost for a variety of reasons whether due to poor oral health or an accident that knocks out a tooth. If you are missing teeth you may want to look into dental implants. Dental implants are remarkably natural looking and will look exactly that same as your own teeth. They are also very resilient and can easily last more than ten years if you have good oral hygiene habits. Another great benefit is that nothing needs to be removed when you are eating or sleeping. Care for your dental implants is performed in the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Whatever the reason for your missing teeth, dental implants can restore your beautiful smile, allowing you to present yourself with confidence again.
Dental Veneers are a common and affordable option to correct many different problems. They can correct crooked teeth, fix teeth that are broken, chipped, have cracks or are losing enamel. Dental Veneers are fine slivers of porcelain that are placed on the front of the tooth that needs to be corrected. After having an impression of the tooth, the custom-made veneer will be cemented to the tooth. The dentist will then make sure it is comfortable, the correct color and that it will have the appropriate thickness by buffing the tooth.
DENTAL CROWNS – AN ALTERNATIVE TO VENEERS
If you’ve ever shattered a tooth or had a root canal, more than likely you’re familiar with crowns, artificial covers that encase your teeth and protect them. Crowns can be made out of porcelain (meaning a dental ceramic), metal (usually gold), or a combination of both. From an aesthetic aspect, all porcelain crowns are the material of choice but this not always possible. Well made porcelain crowns should look almost exactly like your own teeth.
If an individual has a missing tooth in between two other teeth a dental bridge can be a great option. A bridge is a false tooth that fills the gap between the other two teeth. The greatest benefit is being able to chew easier but will also make a smile complete.
