Cosmetic dentistry treatment benefits in Corio, Lara & Norlane
- Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
- Fill in spaces between teeth.
- Improve or correct bites.
- Lighten or brighten the colour of teeth.
- Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
- Replace missing teeth.
- Replace old, unattractive dental restorations.
This will lighten teeth that have been stained or discoloured by age, food, drink, and smoking. Our cosmetic dentists provide two whitening options: an in-office treatment and a custom fitted take-home kit.
Composite (tooth-coloured) fillings
Also known as “bonding”, composite fillings are now widely used to repair teeth with cavities and also to replace old, defective fillings. Tooth-coloured fillings are also used to repair chipped, broken, or discoloured teeth. This type of filling is also very useful to fill in gaps and to protect sensitive, exposed root surfaces caused by gum recession.
Porcelain dental veneers
Dental veneers are thin custom-made, tooth-coloured porcelain restorations that are bonded to teeth, creating a beautiful smile. Veneers can help restore or camouflage damaged, discoloured, poorly shaped, or misaligned teeth. Unlike crowns, dental veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed from the surface of the tooth.
A crown is a tooth-coloured, custom-made covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its optimal shape and size. Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Crowns are ideal for teeth that have large, fractured or broken fillings and also for badly decayed teeth. Crowns are also recommended for root canal treated teeth.
Dental implants are made of surgical-grade titanium, which are placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures can be made specifically to fit and attach to implants, giving a patient a strong, stable, and durable solution. They are a fixed option that can be more comfortable than removable dental appliances. Our cosmetic dentists can provide dental implants after tooth extractions in Corio, Lara and Norlane.
Our dentists have successfully treated many patients using Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten teeth. It is a much more cosmetically appealing option, especially for adult patients. It is also a great option for teenagers as it allows for easier oral hygiene as teeth can be brushed and flossed as normal. A computer program will generate a treatment plan so that the end result will be known from day one. This allows for a much more controlled process compared to traditional dental braces.
At Healthview Dental we also assess children at their regular check-up appointments to monitor their jaw growth and development. When caught at an early age, early intervention orthodontics can help intervene and correct any problems; this can minimise or eliminate the need for braces in the future.
