COSMETIC DENTISTRY AT BRISBANE STREET DENTAL
If you are concerned or unhappy with the colour of your teeth or the size, shape or alignment of your teeth, getting cosmetic dentistry at Brisbane Street Dental may provide a solution for your concerns.
Cosmetic Dentistry at our practice aims to create better looking teeth and a dazzling happy smile for you.
It may be a combination of following treatments:
TEETH WHITENING :
Teeth can get discoloured during day to day use and slowly get surface stains. At Brisbane Street Dental tooth whitening can be achieved reliably and safely by bleaching agents to make the teeth bright and white again.
At Brisbane Street Dental we use light activation of the bleaching gel applied safely to your teeth to achieve great results. At the end of this appointment you will leave our surgery with a bright dazzling smile. You are then able to maintain the fantastic results achieved with at home whitening maintenance.
For home whitening, we will take an impression/mould of your teeth to make you a thin, comfortable and well fitting plastic tray for your teeth. You place the bleaching gel provided to you into the trays in the comfort of your home and wear them for up to 30 minutes every day, for about a month to get whiter, brighter smile.
VENEERS & CROWNS :
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth to cover imperfections in your teeth or to straighten your teeth without braces in certain circumstances. Imperfections that can be covered by veneers include:
- Undesirably shaped teeth,
- Worn down teeth,
- Broken teeth or
- Badly stained/discoloured or pitted teeth.
Composite veneers are a cost effective alternative to porcelain veneers. These are the veneers built in mouth to cover the front of visible teeth to improve your smile.
Dental veneers can be used on all visible teeth to change the colour, shape & smile for a total smile makeover.
A dental crown is a dental restoration which caps and encircles a tooth or a dental implant, that improves the strength and appearance of teeth and increase the life span of compromised teeth.
ORAL IMPLANTS & BRIDGES :
Missing teeth in adults can be replaced by dentures, bridges and dental implants. Dentures are the most economical option for replacement of missing teeth.
Full dentures are used to replace all missing teeth and are made of plastic.
Partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth, where the remaining teeth will provide support to the denture with the help of clasps [metal wires] hich go around the remaining natural teeth. Partial dentures can be made of plastic or combination of plastic and metal.
Immediate dentures are the dentures fabricated before the teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures are placed in the mouth right after tooth/teeth extraction so that there is no time period of being without teeth. With immediate dentures we have less control over how they look and they need to be relined as the gums heal.
Dental Implants are permanently fixed replacements for missing teeth that look and function like natural teeth and restore eating, speaking and looks back to normal.
Bridges are used to replace teeth that are already missing or damaged beyond repair. Using a dental crown, they are permanenty attached to the adjacent teeth.
