In other words, if you are not happy with your smile or are concerned about how it makes you look and feel, cosmetic dental surgery is an option worth exploring.
Before any form of treatment is started, your dentist in Forster Tuncurry will have a meeting with you to discuss whether or not you will benefit from a cosmetic dental procedure. During this consultation you will be asked many questions and various options will be discussed.
Some of the concerns that will be addressed as part of this meeting include:
- Chips, cracks or gaps in your teeth
- Teeth whitening
- Removal of stains or discolouration of teeth
- Crooked teeth that need to be straightened
- Misaligned jaw or trouble biting down
- Reducing the amount of visible gum when smiling
- Missing teeth in need of replacement
- Not smiling due to being self-conscious of the appearance of your teeth.
The professionals at Forster Dental Centre will use the information provided along with any goals you may have to improve your appearance or self-confidence to determine which of the cosmetic dentistry procedures is best for you.
Some of the affordable cosmetic dentistry options you may be interested in will include:
Clear plastic teeth aligners are used in this orthodontic treatment. Invisalign braces are almost invisible and are removable so that eating, drinking and regular home dental care in not interrupted. The Invisalign system works over time to straighten teeth and is very effective in doing so.
Made from porcelain, these ‘shells’ are thin and are extremely durable. In fact, the average porcelain veneer will last up to 20 years if cared for properly. The shells are bonded to the front of your teeth and instantly improve your smile.
This form of treatment is used to disguise teeth that are chipped or cracked as well as those that are discoloured in any way. The veneers do not stain and will keep your smile white and bright.
At Forster Dental Centre one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide is teeth whitening. There are two ways in which it can be done – in our office or at home. The in-office choice involves hydrogen peroxide gel and UV light treatment.
Whitening trays can be taken home if you prefer to do it yourself. If you have discoloured teeth from smoking, coffee/tea/wine consumption or due to aging, teeth whitening is an affordable choice to improve your smile.
Gum Contouring or Reshaping
If you have what you consider a smile that reveals too much gum, this procedure is your answer. It uses a laser system that removes soft tissue in order to bring more balance between your teeth and gums. Gum contouring will also even the shape of your smile making it look healthier and more vibrant. Be sure to talk to us if you feel this is a concern.
Using a hard resin which is sculpted onto a tooth, shaped and hardened, bonding is an alternative to veneers. The resin is polished and is an effective way of addressing cracked, worn, discoloured and crooked teeth. The strong composite lasts for years, it looks natural and may be a more cost effective alternative to porcelain veneers.
