Enhance the aesthetics of your smile with Cosmetic Dentistry!
Whether your smile is crooked, discoloured or imbalanced to the rest of your facial features, with specifically designed cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr Geoff Ross, an esteemed dentist in Melbourne, can help!
Did you know that your smile is the very first feature others notice about you? It’s true, and what’s more – it has been found in a recent study that those with beautiful, whiter smiles are more likely to:
- Gain a promotion
- Acquire a job
- Be asked on a second date
This means your smile could possibly be holding you back in both your professional and social life. If you have a smile that is discoloured, chipped, cracked or crooked, Dr Geoff Ross has a myriad of high-quality cosmetic dentistry procedures specifically designed to help you achieve the smile of your dreams.
Porcelain veneers are essentially very thin porcelain shells that are roughly the thickness of a contact lens. These thin shells are then expertly moulded to your own individual teeth for a comfortable and precise fit. Once this is complete, your porcelain veneers are constructed and then adhered to your front visible teeth. By using this method our professional dentists are able to conceal:
- Unwanted gaps
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- An asymmetrical smile
By permanently bonding porcelain veneers to your teeth, we are not only effectively enhancing your facial aesthetics, but we are also helping to protect your teeth from further damage or discolouration! With good care your porcelain veneers should last from 10 to 15 years!
If you are self-conscious about your smile due to a disproportionate amount of gum (also known as periodontal) tissue, we are able to effectively utilise a gum lift to help correct the imbalance of your gum to tooth ratio. Many patients do not realise just what an effect minimalizing excess gum tissue can achieve for their complete facial aesthetic.
An overly gummy smile can be caused by a wide range of factors, which can include:
- The shape and size of your lips
- The size of your teeth
- Facial muscles
- Excess gum tissue
If you are feeling unhappy with the look of your smile due to excess gummy tissue and would like to create a more proportionate smile, our dental professionals at our Melbourne practice may be able to help contour and sculpt your gum line for superior results.
Many factors can cause tooth discolouration, and it is one of the leading reasons many opt to refrain from smiling in photos or going to functions. If you want to keep your smile white and beautiful, it is best to abstain from consuming:
- Red wine
Discolouration can also be caused by age, some medications, genetics and some illnesses.
Tooth Whitening can help to dramatically change your appearance in just one dental appointment and is a great choice for anyone looking to completely rejuvenate their smile. Our dental professionals in Melbourne are specifically trained to discover the source of your tooth discolouration and are able to recommend the appropriate treatment for optimal results.
