Enhancing Your Smile with Modern Procedures

Cosmetic dentistry has gained significant popularity in recent years, revolutionizing the realm of oral healthcare by not only improving the appearance of teeth but also enhancing overall oral health. Tea Tree Dental offers numerous major dental and cosmetic dentistry procedures and treatments, including clear braces, teeth whitening, dental implants, crowns, veneers, and dental bridges that can help you to achieve a brighter smile.

In Australia, a study conducted by the Australian Dental Association revealed that over 81% of people believe that a person’s smile plays a crucial role in their overall attractiveness, which highlights the importance of cosmetic dentistry in boosting self-confidence and transforming lives.

Technological advancements in the dental industry

In the last few years, cosmetic dentistry has experienced exciting and remarkable advancements, revolutionizing the way we can enhance and improve your smile. As technology progresses, local dental professionals like us at Tea Tree Dental now have access to a range of cutting-edge equipment, new materials and techniques that push the boundaries of what is possible in cosmetic dentistry. For example, with the aid of our CEREC dental milling machine, in most cases you can have your unique and permanent crown fitted the same day. Same day crowns were unheard of only a few short years ago.

Cosmetic dentistry & procedures

Teeth whitening

This is one of Tea Tree Dental’s most popular cosmetic dental procedures. As we age, our teeth can become stained and discoloured due to contributing factors like consuming certain foods and beverages, smoking, or poor oral hygiene. Our professional teeth whitening treatments can effectively remove stains and make your teeth several shades lighter which results in a noticeably brighter smile. Although more expensive than over-the-counter products, professional teeth whitening treatments have been proven to be more effective and longer lasting.

Clear braces

Also known as invisible aligners, clear braces have gained immense popularity in recent years. This alternative to traditional uncomfortable metal braces relies on nearly invisible aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired position. Not only are clear braces aesthetically pleasing, which allows the patient to be less self-conscious, but they also provide convenience since the aligners can be easily removed for eating and maintaining oral hygiene.

Dental implants

Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution to missing teeth by replacing one or more missing teeth with artificial tooth roots and crowns. Usually made of titanium, these posts are surgically attached to the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for the prosthetic teeth. Once the implants integrate with the bone, custom-made dental crowns are attached, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth. Dental implants look and function like natural teeth, restoring chewing ability, speech, and overall dental aesthetics.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are tailor-made, thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth and are an excellent option for enhancing your smile by hiding imperfections such as chips, stains, or gaps between teeth. These versatile shells can also improve the shape and alignment of your teeth, resulting in a flawless smile. Colour-matched to your natural teeth, dental veneers provide a durable and natural-looking solution for achieving a picture-perfect smile.

Dental bridges

We use dental bridges to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to neighbouring natural teeth or dental implants. This fixed restoration not only fills the gaps in your smile but also helps maintain the alignment of surrounding teeth. By filling the gap created by missing teeth, bridges prevent the remaining teeth from shifting and maintain proper dental alignment. Dental bridges restore both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile, allowing you to speak and chew with ease.

Same day crowns

Also known as CEREC crowns, same day crowns utilize advanced technology to fabricate dental crowns on-site, usually within a single appointment. These crowns are milled using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, eliminating the need for temporary crowns and multiple dental visits. Same day crowns restore damaged teeth efficiently while ensuring a precise fit and natural appearance.

Composite fillings

Composite fillings provide a discreet solution for cavities and minor tooth damage, blending seamlessly with natural teeth since they are colour matched to your tooth. Unlike amalgam, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth structure, requiring less removal of healthy tooth material. This helps preserve more of the natural tooth and increases its strength. Tea Tree Dental only use composite material for fillings, and should you choose to have your existing amalgam fillings replaced, you can expect a durable, natural-looking solution that benefits your oral health. Composite fillings are mercury-free, addressing concerns associated with amalgam fillings.
