From subtle changes to extreme repairs, Northshore Dental and Oral Health can perform a variety of innovative and corrective procedures to enhance your smile.
Today’s technology means there are many techniques and treatments to choose from to correct anything from discoloured teeth to a gummy smile. Your dentist can reshape, remould and rejuvenate your worn or tired smile.
Many cosmetic dentistry treatments aren’t just for the aesthetics. They can also improve your speech and the function of your teeth. Northshore Dental and Oral Health offer their patients a number of innovative cosmetic dentistry procedures including:
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures worldwide. The process has been developed to be safe and effective when performed by a trained professional.
Your dentist will apply a bleaching agent in the form of a gel to the teeth and will place a special light on top to active the whitening gel. This whitening procedure will quickly break down surface stains, for a brilliant, white smile.
Tooth discolouration occurs in the outer layer of the tooth called the enamel. Stains can occur from certain medications, coffee and lifestyle choices like smoking.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They camouflage discolouration and can change the shape and surface of your teeth. Placing veneers is virtually painless and anaesthesia is rarely used.
Veneers are ideal for patients whose teeth are:
- Oddly shaped
- Unevenly spaced
Placing veneers requires your dentist to remove a slight amount of tooth enamel so the veneer fits seamlessly over the top. The veneer will be bonded to your tooth via dental cement and set with a special light beam.
Veneers are more durable and last longer than composite veneers and can also be a great alternative to crowns, as they are a more inexpensive option.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick and easy non-surgical way to relax the facial muscles. The moment of facial muscles can cause the skin to wrinkle and by relaxing certain muscles can give you a refreshed appearance.
Northshore Dental and Oral Health will inject a small amount of anti-wrinkle treatment into your facial muscles with a miniscule needle. The pain associated with these injections is generally mild and brief. Patients sometimes opt for a topical numbing cream or ice to minimise the slight discomfort.
Laser Gum Surgery
Laser gum surgery is focused on the aesthetic appearance of a ‘gummy smile’ A gummy smile is when a person’s gums are not in proportion with their teeth and can often look as though the patient has short teeth.
Gum contouring is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves reshaping or removing unwanted gum tissue with laser technology. The laser is gently removed and seal excess gums without any bleeding. This means no cuts or incisions.
The entire laser gum surgery procedure is virtually painless and can make a dramatic difference to the overall aesthetics of your smile.
