Cosmetic dentistry in Oakleigh

A smile makeover involves one or more cosmetic, dental or facial rejuvenation procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

A smile makeover to one person could mean something completely different to another, and it is a very individual choice. For example, some people want the perfectly white Hollywood smile makeover, or the celebrity smile with natural looking porcelain veneers. Other people may just want a simple improvement, such as the replacement of amalgam fillings with composite and teeth whitening.

With our range of cosmetic dentistry services, we offer smile solutions for everyone. Our specialised dental services will help improve the overall look and feel of your teeth and give you back a smile you’ll be proud of.

How can a smile makeover improve my smile?

Whatever the reasons for your dissatisfaction with your smile, there are many different ways to improve your smile using modern cosmetic dentistry. Crooked teeth can be straightened with the Inman Aligner, Invisalign, ClearCorrect or traditional metal orthodontics. They can also be covered with composite veneers or porcelain veneers for a faster solution, often referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’.

A dental crown is used when a tooth is damaged beyond repair and a large amount of the tooth structure has been lost. Our modern crowns are strong and match the colour of your remaining teeth perfectly.

porcelain veneers Oakleigh dentist Melbourne

Dental Veneers

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain or composite resin that are attached to the tooth’s surface. They cover up discoloured, damaged and worn-down enamel, and are made to match the rest of your teeth perfectly for a great smile.

Composite Veneers (Resin Veneers)

When you want a versatile approach to improving the appearance of your teeth, composite veneers are a good choice. We bond a composite polymer resin to your tooth, to remove discolouration and to create a smooth, even surface.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like layers of porcelain that are bonded to the surface of the tooth. We have two options available at our clinic: single visit porcelain veneers (using CEREC technology) and lab-made porcelain veneers. Offering both types means that we can cater for our client’s budget and the necessity of exact colour matching

The Problem

This patient had suffered with her smile for a long time before coming to see us. The teeth were damaged when her braces were removed. This was then continually patched up. The patches never looked good but also fell out regularly.

What We Did

We whitened the teeth, and then placed veneers on the upper fourth teeth. The patient opted for 8 veneers to control the colour.

Treatment Time

2 appointments, 2 weeks apart.

The Problem

This patient did not like the appearance of her smile. She wanted something nice but natural.

What We Did

We didn’t feel the initial situation required lots of work to achieve the smile the patient wanted. The initial plan was to whiten her teeth, replace two crowns and rebuild some worn / chipped teeth with composite. However when we reassessed the smile after whitening, we were not happy with the result and the patient opted for a combination of crowns and veneers for the upper 10 teeth to get the colour look she wanted and composite to rebuild the lower worn teeth after further teeth whitening.

Treatment Time

7 appointments over 2 months.

Cosmetic Dentistry Before & After: Oakleigh More

With teeth worn from grinding, this Oakleigh patient was not happy with his smile and was experiencing problems with the jaw joint. We placed crowns on the upper teeth, and fitted a splint to address the nighttime grinding.

The Problem

This patient had worn his teeth due to grinding and tooth loss. The worn teeth were affecting the jaw joint.

What We Did

We spent some time planning this case using models and rebuilding the teeth in wax. Using this as a blueprint we placed crowns over the worn teeth and then a grinding splint to wear at night.

Treatment Time

2 weeks to plan and 2 weeks to prepare, make and fit.
