Teeth Whitening in Burwood – How A Cosmetic Dentist in Burwood Can Help
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry involves a variety of procedures which either singularly or together, change the colour, shape, or alignment of your teeth. Referred to as elective treatment, cosmetic dentistry isn’t usually performed for reasons other than to improve your appearance. That said, aesthetic procedures like teeth whitening can also be combined with restorative treatments such as dental implants, orthodontics, and porcelain veneers in Burwood to achieve the perfect smile.
So why do people undergo cosmetic dentistry in Burwood?
Over time, lifestyle choices, habits, and the natural ageing process wreak havoc on a smile. For this reason, many people are looking for ways to rejuvenate their looks and give themselves a confidence boost. Even simple procedures such as professional teeth whitening in Burwood can do exactly that. For us, it’s a great feeling when we see patients who have undergone treatments such as teeth bleaching or porcelain veneers, get a new lease of life. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at some of the cosmetic dental procedures and how our Burwood dental clinic can help.
Burwood, Strathfield, and Ashfield residents will be pleased to know that we have a number of in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments using top brand names such as Opalescence, Poladay, and Colgate. Each is designed to give you the smile you want in a controlled and convenient way.
So how does professional teeth whitening in Burwood work?
When you visit our Burwood dentist on Burwood Road, we’ll carefully assess your teeth. Provided they are healthy we’ll discuss the best whitening treatment for you. As the name suggests, in office teeth whitening is carried out chairside at our dental practice by our experienced team. During an hour-long session, teeth are whitened using a high strength whitening gel which is carefully applied directly onto the teeth. Once done, patients will notice a brighter whiter smile, although it may take several days to reach its full potential.
Alternatively, our Burwood dentist may suggest take-home teeth whitening kits. Patients are provided with custom whitening trays which they fill with a measured quantity of lower-strength whitening gel. The trays are then worn over the patient’s teeth in the comfort of their own home. The gel can be applied for overnight use or to wear for a few hours a day, depending upon the brand, and can take around 14 days to see results, although many patients notice a difference within just a few days.
All of our teeth whitening treatments are totally safe and can deliver great results, so come and talk to our cosmetic dentist in Burwood today!
Burwood dental care – Porcelain Veneers
Sometimes teeth appear discoloured because the dentin or inner portion of the teeth has darkened and is showing through the tooth enamel. This type of staining, known as intrinsic staining, can be difficult or impossible to remove using in-office or at home teeth whitening in Burwood. Staining of this nature can be genetic, caused by certain medications, or as a result of ageing, and in these cases, our Burwood cosmetic dentist may suggest porcelain veneers.
As the name suggests, veneers are thin shell-like layers of porcelain which are placed permanently over the surface of the tooth, effectively hiding any discolouration or staining. They are colour-matched and shaped to blend in with your smile perfectly and can be fitted to one tooth, or several. Once attached, shaped, and polished, no one will ever know the difference.
Dental Bridge/Dental Crown in Burwood
Here at Dental Spot we also have our very own on-site laboratory where our skilled technicians design and digitally fabricate state-of-the-art crowns for dental bridges and dental implants. A dental crown in Burwood, can be fitted for a variety of reasons:
• to conceal a chipped or cracked tooth
• to strengthen a tooth following a root canal procedure
• to top a dental implant or
• as part of several crowns used to make up a dental bridge.
Burwood technicians here at Dental Spot strive to match every detail of your existing teeth for a natural seamless look and although we can even match staining or blemishes if required, for top results the procedure is best carried out after teeth whitening.
