The following are some of the most common cosmetic procedures performed at The Caringbah Dentists.
Professional teeth whitening
As teeth age, it can appear dull and yellow. If you smoke, or regularly consume strongly coloured food items like coffee, red wine etc. that also make leave tough stains on your teeth.
With professional teeth whitening, special bleach solutions are applied to the teeth to penetrate the enamel and get rid of deep stains. If you have a healthy set of teeth and gums, you can safely undergo teeth whitening. However, if you have cavities or gum diseases, it is better to have these problems addressed before you start with the teeth whitening treatment.
During the whitening procedure, the dentist will apply a strong bleach solution to your teeth. A special UV light is shone on your teeth to activate the solution and speed up the whitening process. With the help of professional teeth whitening, you can whiten teeth up to 10 shades.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are applied on the surface of the teeth. If the discoloration is very serious, or if there are tiny cracks and chips on the enamel, then veneers may be a better solution than teeth whitening.
A thin layer of the enamel is removed to make space for the veneers. Veneers cannot be removed once they are placed on the teeth, because they are permanently bonded to the tooth surface. Porcelain veneers are custom-designed to suit the smile of the patient.
When correctly designed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, it is virtually impossible to tell that you are wearing dental veneers. They look completely natural.
