Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right For Me?

Contemplating whether to undergo a cosmetic dentistry procedure can seem like a big decision. But in reality, cosmetic dental treatments are a simple way to brighten your smile and restore confidence in your appearance.  

Cosmetic dental procedures can lighten stained teeth, conceal chips and cracks, and bring balance and symmetry to your smile.

Here’s some examples of cosmetic dentistry that are guaranteed to rejuvenate your teeth:

Teeth whitening

Teeth discoloration can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. However, this is a common problem - over time, your teeth can become stained by dark-coloured food and drinks (like coffee, tea and red wine) and cigarettes. While home remedies can only help so much with discoloured teeth, professional teeth whitening services can be a safe and effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.

Composite bonding

Composite bonding involves the use of composite material that is then bonded to reshape, rebuild, or fill damaged teeth. This material can be used to cover up and conceal cracks, craze lines (hairline cracks), discoloration and other cosmetic imperfections. Dental bonding can also change the shape of a tooth to make it longer, wider or more uniform. This is a simple and cost-effective dental treatment that is proficient at treating minor damage.

Dental veneers

Porcelain dental veneers are perfect at disguising chipped, cracked or discoloured teeth. They appear in the form of thin, strong shells that stick to the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain veneers operate in a similar way to natural teeth, and so you can continue to bite and chew your food normally without fearing any consequences. All veneers usually depend on at least some removal of natural enamel, which means they could be reversible, and typically need replacing every 10 years. They can be applied to one tooth or your entire mouth, offering lots of flexibility and catering effectively to individual requirements.

Gum recontouring

Some people are born with excess gum tissue, making your smile appear “gummy” or unbalanced. During gum contouring, your dentist removes excess gum tissue and reshapes your gum line for a more symmetrical, balanced appearance. Gum recontouring can alter the position of the gum margin by careful trimming, usually undertaken at the time of tooth preparation.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns, sometimes known as caps, are placed on top of damaged teeth and are used to protect, cover and restore the shape of your teeth when fillings don’t solve the problem. Usually made of porcelain or gold or a combination of these materials, dental crowns are ideal for teeth that have been damaged or weakened by decay or a very large filling..

Been a Dr. Rez patient for around 4 years now. From initially needing a lot of work done to now just regular check ups and cleaning. I can confidently say it's been one of my best decisions. From being a very nervous patient to now quite enjoying my appointment (relatively anyway ha). Currently my therapist is Lilly, very ably assisted by Mel and they couldn't be more encouraging, thoughtful and nice. I get great advice and couldn't feel better looked after. Couldn't recommend more.
