Cosmetic dentistry

When it comes to a bright smile, maintaining oral hygiene is a must. That’s where cosmetic dental procedures come into play. At About Smiles, we believe everyone deserves the smile they want. In this guide, we will explore some common cosmetic dental treatments to address any concerns you may have.

Cosmetic dental treatments to enhance your smile

Professional teeth whitening

One of the most popular and straightforward cosmetic dental procedures is teeth whitening. Over time, our teeth can become stained and discoloured from various factors such as diet, smoking and ageing. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure to brighten your smile significantly.

At About Smiles, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. Our certified teeth-whitening cosmetic dentists will fit you with protective goggles and use gels and rubber shields to protect your gums. Our in-office whitening treatments use a higher percentage of peroxide and are less abrasive to provide longer-lasting results with no damage to your tooth enamel. It will only take 60 minutes, followed by an easy home routine for the best results.

If you prefer to do it yourself, avoid over-the-counter options containing less peroxide, leading to insignificant results. Our cosmetic dentists will provide custom-made trays and professional-grade whitening gel. They will hold the gel directly against your teeth and minimise exposure to the gums.

Cosmetic veneers

Cosmetic veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin custom-designed to fit over the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can cost more than composite but can last 15 years or more, whereas composite veneers last an average of four to eight years. Composite veneers are ideal for small applications or temporary cover-ups. Veneers are an excellent solution for addressing a variety of cosmetic dental issues, including:

  • Stained or discoloured teeth — Our veneers in Sydney can cover up deeply stained or discoloured teeth that may not respond well to teeth whitening.
  • Chipped or cracked teeth — Veneers can restore the appearance of damaged teeth, providing a seamless and natural-looking result.
  • Gaps between teeth — Cosmetic veneers can close gaps between teeth, creating a more even and symmetrical smile.
  • Misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth — Veneers can correct minor misalignments and reshape teeth for a harmonious smile.

Our veneers in Sydney typically take two appointments. During the first visit, our cosmetic dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel, taking impressions and fitting you with temporary veneers. In the second visit, your custom veneers will be bonded to your teeth, giving you a bright new smile. 

Invisalign™ invisible braces

Have you ever been upset by the spacing between your teeth? If you want to straighten overcrowded, crooked, misaligned or over-spaced teeth discreetly, Invisalign™ clear aligners may be the ideal choice. Misaligned teeth and underbites or overbites can pose potential hygiene issues since misaligned teeth are a breeding ground for plaque and bacteria to build up and pose long-term dental issues.

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign™ uses a series of clear, removable aligners to shift your teeth into their desired positions gradually. The process involves taking an initial impression of your teeth to create a 3D image and then running a computer simulation to create the full set of custom aligners. Our cosmetic dentists in Sydney will fabricate and fit the aligners perfectly to maximise your comfort while wearing them. 

This innovative approach to orthodontic treatment offers several advantages:

  • Aesthetics — Invisalign™ aligners are virtually invisible, making them popular among adults and teenagers who want to straighten their teeth discreetly.
  • Comfort — The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, eliminating the discomfort and irritation often associated with metal braces.
  • Convenience: Invisalign™ aligners can be removed for eating, drinking and oral hygiene, making them a convenient option for busy lifestyles.

At About Smiles, our cosmetic dentists in Sydney can evaluate your orthodontic needs and determine if Invisalign is right for you.
