Refresh your smile at Spa Dental Sydney
At Spa Dental in Sydney we know that sometimes in people’s lives a smile can need a bit of extra attention, whether it’s whitening, straightening or just a professional clean. If you are not satisfied when you see your smile in the mirror then book a consultation appointment with one of our dental professionals. They will be able to listen to your concerns and resolve them to the best of their abilities, answering any questions that you have regarding treatments along the way.
Regular check-ups are vital for healthy teeth and gums
It is important to attend regular check-ups with us at Spa Dental Sydney in Sydney to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy. Usually you should see the dentist at least once a year for a check-up, but this can vary depending on your individual circumstances. Your dental practitioner may advise that you have a professional clean carried out including a scale and polish, or they may need to repair a damaged tooth that they have discovered. Sometimes you may have underlying problems that have no symptoms, meaning the only way to prevent additional damage from occurring is to have a dental professional assess the condition of your mouth. It is important to brush your teeth twice a day, making sure to use mouthwash and floss between your teeth too to avoid a build up of plaque.
Avoid a prematurely aging smile
Sometimes even a high standard of oral hygiene is not enough to keep the stains away. Things such as drinking tea and alcohol, eating certain foods and smoking can increase your chances of getting yellow or brown stains on the surfaces of your teeth, resulting in you looking older than you really are. At Spa Dental Sydney in Sydney we offer tooth whitening treatment to reduce the appearance of these stains. You can opt to have this treatment done at our practice or from the comfort of your own home.
It’s never too late to straighten your teeth
Many adults believe that it is too late to straighten their teeth, but at our practice we offer Invisalign, a discreet and comfortable treatment that can be completed in as little as six months. Treatment time can vary in relation to your personal circumstances but is usually completed within eighteen months. The treatment itself is incredibly straightforward and involves you having a scan taken of your teeth. This scan will be used to produce a series of images, and from these images you will have several sets of aligners made. These aligners are clear and made of plastic, fitting easily over the top of your own teeth to gradually pull or push them into their new positions. You must wear your aligners in order and for a minimum of twenty-two hours a day, but they are completely removable, making eating and brushing your teeth extremely easy. Once your treatment has ended your dental professional will issue you with a retainer to wear. You will need to wear your retainer all the time for a period of time after your treatment and then at night for the months or years following, depending on your individual circumstances.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
