Sunshine and smiles
The image of your typical Aussie is one of a healthy, sun-kissed body and a big friendly smile. Does your match up to how the world sees us? If not, you can make sure it does with cosmetic dentistry in Elsternwick.
At My Smile Clinic, Dr Geeta Perks and her team have a great range of treatments that used separately, or in combination, can transform even the most neglected or wonky of smiles into a thing of beauty that you just won’t be able to keep to yourself. Cosmetic dentistry in Elsternwick can straighten, whiten, reshape, and harmonise the teeth.
The best way to find out which treatments are most suitable for you is to come in for a consultation. Dr Geeta Perks can thoroughly examine your smile and then make suggestions as to the best ways to bring out its natural beauty. You do not need to be in dire dental straits to benefit from cosmetic dentistry in Elsternwick. Even just a tiny flaw, such as one wonky or chipped tooth, can be enough to make you terribly self-conscious, especially if other people have remarked on it. And, knowing how others can’t resist pointing out imperfections, they probably have.
Veneers are great for covering over imperfections and can be used to hide stains, mild misalignments, and gaps between teeth, as well as the more usual chips, cracks and worn edges. Veneers can either be porcelain sheaths that are attached to the fronts of the teeth, or porcelain composite paste that is sculpted over the teeth and then hardened. The latter is less durable, but works particularly well on the front biting teeth.
This is a quick, easy, non-invasive treatment to whiten away stains acquired through smoking, or drinking tea, coffee, and red wine, as well as foods such as blueberries. It’s also great for brightening up the dullness of teeth that have been through a good few decades of use.
Mildly misaligned teeth can be straightened in as little as six months with cosmetic braces. Straighter teeth not only look better, they are much easier to keep clean and less prone to decay or gum disease.
