Cosmetic dentistry: looking after more than just your teeth

Lady smiling into mirror - cosmetic treatments

At justSMILE in Sydney we offer a cosmetic treatment plan for your teeth and your face

Improving the appearance of your smile has never been easier with dentofacial aesthetics.

Dentofacial aesthetics combines dentistry with treatments such as: lip fillers, anti-wrinkle treatments and gummy smile treatment. What this means for you is you can have your teeth whitened and your frown lines treated to give you an all-round smile rejuvenation treatment.

Your teeth, your smile and receiving the best treatment for you and your smile

When you visit justSMILE we will assess your oral health and determine the best course of action for you. Many patients come in hoping tooth whitening will be all they need to improve the appearance of their smile. More often than not they are surprised when we tell them about dentofacial aesthetics, and how it is an all-encompassing method of improving your smile.

For example: the colour of your teeth may not be the only reason you’re not smiling. Maybe someone pointed out your frown lines, or your crows’ feet. Maybe you feel you have more gum than teeth. Either way at justSMILE we can help you.

And then there’s which dental treatment is best for you.

While most of the time the answer to discoloured teeth is tooth whitening ,there are cases when tooth whitening will not be an effective treatment method for you. The reason for this is that your teeth may be discoloured from the inside.

If this is the case then no amount of tooth whitening will work, you would then need a different treatment such as maybe root canal therapy or porcelain veneers.

Why porcelain veneers and not tooth whitening?

The difference between a tooth whitening treatment such as ZOOM! Tooth whitening and porcelain veneers is what they can do for your teeth. Tooth whitening can only brighten your smile, while porcelain veneers are able to conceal minor chips, cracks and imperfections. They are strong, sturdy and stain-resistant providing you with a whiter, healthy-looking smile.

A healthy-looking smile is the aim of cosmetic dentistry; there is no point giving a patient a smile that does not suit them, this means taking the time to assess their health and determine what is the best treatment for them.
