Not everybody has the good fortune of a perfect looking, straight, white smile! Your teeth may show various faults or blemishes due to:

  • Inherited traits such as gaps between teeth, misaligned teeth, spots or irregularities.
  • Staining caused by certain foods and beverages
  • Discolouration from smoking
  • The use of antibiotics in children, resulting in permanent colour changes in teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Age and general wear and tear

The Gentle Dentist At Mt Warren Park can help you discover your true smile potential with the following procedures:

 
Porcelain veneers

A porcelain veneer is a thin ceramic shell that covers the front surface of unattractive teeth which are otherwise strong and healthy. Veneers are an excellent treatment for discoloured, misshapened or misaligned teeth or to close gaps between teeth. Porcelain veneers will usually involve 2-3 visits to your dentist.

 
Bonding

Bonding is similar to veneers but instead of porcelain, a tooth coloured filling material is used to cover the front surface of unsightly teeth. The advantage of bonding is that usually only one visit to the dentist is needed and is a less expensive option to porcelain veneers. Bonding can successfully correct many cosmetic defects in teeth but because the filling material is not as strong as porcelain, bonding is more prone to chipping, breaking and staining, but is usually easily repaired.

 
Bleaching
For stains which cannot be removed by professional cleaning, bleaching can lighten and brighten discoloured teeth. It is important to remember that while bleaching can remove existing stains, it will not prevent future staining of your teeth caused by smoking and certain food and beverages. Your dentist can provide you with custom-made trays and a quality bleaching gel for you to bleach your teeth in the comfort of your own home. The trays can be kept and re-used for any future bleaching. The Gentle Dentist At Mt Warren Park supplies professional and quality bleaching products which are exclusively available to dentists.
