Cosmetic Dentistry

Your health is your dentist’s number one priority; however, your dental team also wants you to feel that your smile looks its best.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you should know that modern cosmetic dentistry offers help. Discuss your cosmetic goals with your dentist so that we can design a customised treatment plan for you!

Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth is one of the simplest and most cost-effective improvements you can make. 

Stains occur for many reasons, including smoking or tobacco use. Your teeth can also become stained by regularly eating certain foods and beverages. Plus, teeth naturally start to darken as you age.

Choosing a professional whitening treatment can reverse the effects of tooth staining for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.

There are many whitening treatments readily available for purchase; however, professional whitening is generally safer and more effective. Applicator trays in chemist shop kits are intended to be “one size fits all” which can result in them fitting uncomfortably in your mouth since they aren’t designed specifically for your teeth. Whitening gels included with this type of product can sometimes be too abrasive or can leak because of ill-fitting trays, leading to gum and other soft tissue irritation. 

For these reasons, you may want to choose professional whitening instead. The whitening service provided by your dentist may consist of two phases – an in-office whitening session and a customised at-home kit and care plan.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain or composite resin that is bonded to the front of your tooth. Veneers can be used to correct cosmetic problems by improving the colour, shape, length, or size of a tooth. You can get one veneer or multiple, depending on your cosmetic goals.

Cosmetic Fillings

Many people may still have dark amalgam fillings in their mouth.

Here at UOW Dental these fillings have not been used for over 20 years. We exclusively use Tooth Coloured Filling materials to match the shade of your natural teeth, for both new fillings and replacement of old.

The usual choice is composite resin, which is bonded to the tooth in a putty-like state, then hardened with an intense white light, shaped and polished. In this way we can duplicate your natural tooth appearance.
