What Does Cosmetic Dentistry Mean?

what is cosmetic dentistry

There’s no need to frown any longer! With progressive technology and experienced professionals, cosmetic dentistry can revolutionise your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is a specialised area within dentistry that works towards improving your smile. Despite common beliefs, cosmetic dentistry does not have to be complex or expensive. The best cosmetic dentistry in Caringbah will offer affordable dental treatments and a wide range of options to suit your unique circumstances. At The Caringbah Dentists, just mention your interest at your next general dental check-up and your dedicated dental team will explain some options to you at no obligation.

As popular dentists in The Shire, we have supported hundreds of patients on their cosmetic dentistry journey. Our ultimate goal is to help our patients feel comfortable and confident with their smiles. We truly care about getting a great outcome for each individual patient, so we work towards complete and comprehensive oral care.

There are many ways to naturally improve your smile, as we have noted in a previous blog post, but if you are very dissatisfied with your smile, cosmetic dentistry may be the most effective way to make an improvement. Some of the reasons that patients come to us for cosmetic treatment include:

  • They had stained or discoloured teeth
  • They have cracked or chipped teeth
  • Their teeth are not aligned aesthetically
  • Their teeth are oddly shaped
  • They have low self-confidence because of their smile, and they want to improve this

There are a range of cosmetic dental procedures that exist for the public. Some of these treatments and procedures include teeth whitening, dental implants, composite bonding, and veneers. Each treatment has a different treatment process, and some may or may not be suitable for you. When you visit your Southern Sydney dentist, they will be able to thoroughly examine your mouth and determine the best solution for you.

Two of the most popular cosmetic dental services available in our South Sydney dental clinic are professional teeth whitening and dental veneers.

Professional teeth whitening uses special and safe bleach solutions to penetrate your enamel and remove deep stains. A special UV light assists with activating the solution and speeding the whitening process. Over time, your teeth will become a brighter shade of white. Because a strong solution is used in the process, it is important that you have healthy teeth and gums to undertake this treatment.

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that are stuck onto the surface of your teeth. Dental veneers can cover cracks, chips and stains that exist on your original tooth. For the veneer to be placed, a thin layer of your enamel is removed to create space for it. Porcelain veneers are custom-made to suit your unique smile and bond with your tooth surface perfectly. Once on, veneers appear completely natural and can drastically improve your smile.
