Good oral health is vital for overall well-being but we at Spa Dental Sydney understand that sometimes you may want more from your smile than just healthy teeth. A beautiful smile sometimes helps self-confidence and can help bring positivity into your life. If you have healthy dentition and are looking to improve the aesthetics of your mouth then speak to your dentist in Sydney today about cosmetic dentistry to find out about the many different options that may be available for you.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, staining and discolouration of your teeth can affect the way you feel about your smile. Staining can occur as a result of many different factors including poor dental hygiene, smoking or choice of food and drinks such as tea, coffee and wine. Natural staining may also occur as a result of ageing and genetics. You can speak to your dentist in Sydney today if staining and discolouration are an issue for you as teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic treatments in dentistry. Tooth whitening at your dentist is a great way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth and enhancing your smile.

How can veneers help my smile?

If you are looking for a permanent solution for your tooth staining, speak to us at Spa Dental Sydney about veneers. Porcelain veneers have been found to show excellent aesthetic results. They involve slight reshaping of your tooth so that the veneer can be attached perfectly without changing the size of your teeth. Veneers can be used to whiten your smile without having to worry about discolouration as they are stain-resistant and therefore will not need to be whitened. Veneers are also used in the case of a chipped or cracked tooth, as they cover the entire front surface of your tooth. You may need only one veneer or you may decide to have a set of veneers to help enhance your smile by providing symmetry and aligning the remaining teeth. They have the same light-reflecting properties as natural teeth if you are interested in a more natural look and they enhance and improve your mouth altogether according to your personal requirements. Veneers are also used in the treatment of damaged enamel.

How can white fillings improve my smile?

Dental fillings are a common procedure carried out in many adults at least once in their lifetime. Fillings are required when your tooth may be infected or decayed. It involves the tooth being cleaned out and refilled with specialist dental filler. Previously these fillings used to be silver or amalgam fillings, made of mercury, silver, tin, copper and zinc. Whilst great at what they do, they can affect how you feel about your smile as they are easily visible in your mouth. Speak to us at Spa Dental Sydney about white fillings as an attractive alternative to ordinary fillings. They are constructed to be more subtle and they blend in with your surrounding dentition to the point that they are almost invisible and they are specifically coloured to match your surrounding teeth. Overall white fillings and other cosmetic dentistry can have a positive impact on your self-confidence and you can smile happily again.

All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
