If you are not sure about what Cosmetic Dentistry can achieve then let us explain. Restorative Dental Treatments such as Veneers, Crowns or Bonding can re-layer the visible and functional surfaces of teeth. The shapes, the textures, the colour and translucency can all be improved.
In fact, Teeth with moderate to severe: Wear; Abrasion (from toothpastes, acidic diets, gastric reflux, eating disorders); Attrition (chipping of the biting edge of teeth); the Teeth will often perform better over the long-term with restorative dentistry. This is because without treatment when the enamel layer of the tooth is breached, a tooth will undergo rapid breakdown. Restoring the Integrity of a Tooth using restorative materials such as Porcelain or Resin helps maintain not just a Tooth’s Aesthetics, but also its Health and Integrity.
Porcelain Veneers are a thin custom-made piece of Porcelain made from a Digital Scan or Impression of a Tooth. They are custom made to fit to the Micron and made to closely imitate the enamel of a tooth. They are so biocompatible that after bonding to the tooth they should not come away.
Cosmetic Dentistry is not a one-size fits all. It takes a careful eye, high degree of precision and knowledge, and a team with technology and experience. There are no two similar ways that treatments are performed, and the materials used to construct Porcelain Veneers significantly vary amongst Dental Practices.
We want your Dental Appointments to be convenient and comfortable. From the moment you make your first Appointment Reservation we expect to provide the very best dental experience.

Porcelain Veneers are a proven cosmetic dental treatment that allows our Brisbane Dentists to transform your smile. They are a thin custom-made porcelain tooth surface bonded to your teeth to create a beautiful, yet natural new smile.
Porcelain Crowns are used to restore the enamel layer on front and back teeth that are broken or weakened teeth due to oversized fillings or root canal treatments or fractures and can also be used where teeth are are worn, discoloured, rotated, poorly shaped, cracked. Porcelain Crowns can be used to correct discolouration, worn teeth, broken teeth, a large cavity, spaced teeth, and crowded teeth.
Firstly, when a Porcelain Crown is made, the tooth is prepared to allow for a thin spacing where the Porcelain is to fit around the tooth. A precise impression is made and the Porcelain Crown is constructed. When the crown has been made by our dental laboratory, the crown is then brought back to the mouth and bonded into position, covering the tooth to slightly below the gums, replacing the missing enamel.
Professional teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dental treatment. Its primary purpose is to restore whiteness to your teeth and brilliance to your smile.
Modern teeth whitening treatments are quick and have immediate and noticeable outcomes. These procedures can be performed either at your local dental surgery with zoom whitening or at home. Teeth whitening is a procedure however that should best be conducted by a qualified dentist in a sterile and controlled environment such as a dental surgery.
Gum-lifts are used to:
Removing excess growth of Gum Tissue changing a square tooth to rectangular tooth
Smiles: Gummy smile reduction (often in conjunction with Porcelain Veneers)
Function: Exposing hidden, healthy tooth to assist in rebuilding the tooth
Aesthetics: Adjusting the Gum-line to improve appearance of the gum, tooth and smile
After Gum-lift there will be less gum-line displayed in the smile and teeth length ratio to width should become more appealing with a rectangular length to width ratio.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
