Cosmetic dentistry in Elsternwick can be truly transformative – you can achieve a great smile without sacrificing the health of your teeth.
Sometimes, whiter teeth are all you need to feel more confident about your smile. At Mysmile Clinic, we offer a variety of teeth whitening treatments such as Zoom whitening and home whitening. Zoom whitening requires an hour or less at the dental practice and can offer dramatic results. Home whitening, on the other hand, takes extra time but is as effective as in-practice whitening. This system involves the use of custom-made, bleaching trays that patients have to wear for a few hours every day. Both methods are entirely safe and effective at removing stains and discolouration from your teeth.
Dental veneers are thin shells usually made of porcelain, which are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth. They are quite versatile since they can fix many problems at once. Most commonly, they are used for improving the appearance of chipped, cracked, misshapen, worn-down, dull, discoloured and gapped teeth. They can also give a straight appearance to crooked teeth and correct slight misalignment without the need to wear braces.
Unlike veneers, which simply cover the front of the teeth, dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over a tooth to cover it and restore its size, shape and strength. When cemented into place, dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and protect it entirely from plaque and bacteria. Since they are made of porcelain, crowns are durable and restore your chewing ability considerably.
