Tooth Whitening

Discolouration of your teeth can be caused by smoking, dietary habits including red wine & black coffee & the effects of some childhood antibiotics (Tetracycline). It is also a natural part of aging… as we get older our teeth get darker.

Whitening of your natural teeth is one of the quickest, easiest forms of “cosmetic surgery” – without the surgery!

We offer several options for teeth whitening, from take-home custom made tray systems, to one of the most advanced Laser Teeth Whitening Systems in the world – Smartbleach®.

We were one of the first surgeries in Australia with the Smartbleach® system, and have been using this tried and proven system for over 11 years, with excellent results.

Smartbleach® is an in-surgery, once off, long lasting treatment using a true laser.  It is very effective, and does not damage the enamel of your teeth. It has in fact been shown to be beneficial in the slowing of early decay. It is one of the only Tooth Whitening systems to be effective on Tetracycline staining (this may require more than one application).  Smartbleach® can also be used to whiten teeth which have discoloured due to root fillings.

The longevity of your results will depend on your lifestyle habits.  If you are a heavy smoker or drink lots of black coffee or red wine, you may find the results are not a long lived… Pass the Chardonnay!

Beware of other systems claiming to use laser technology, more often than not, they are actually a simple UV light, which may actually cause damage to both hard and soft tissues in and around the mouth.

Please be aware that tooth whitening is an irreversible procedure, and as such should only ever be carried out by a registered Dentist (not at the beauty salon in the middle of the shopping centre).

For more information – take a look at the website www.smartbleach.com.au or phone or email the surgery.

 

Composite Veneers

One of the simplest, most cost effective ways to improve your smile, can sometimes be the use of Nano Technology Composite Resin filling materials to change the shape, contours or colour of your front teeth.

That little gap that has been annoying you for years, or that funny angle on your eye tooth may well be very straight forward and inexpensive to remedy.

This is not an option for everyone, however, if you are a suitable candidate this very simple procedure can make a huge difference.  Often, there is minimal need to remove tooth structure, and you may even find there is no need for an anaesthetic.
