White Fillings

Traditionally metal fillings have been used to fill cavities in teeth. However these fillings are not aesthetically pleasing, and in some situations these fillings weaken teeth due to the large amount of the original tooth that has to be removed in order to place them. With advances in modern cosmetic dentistry we have another alternative, tooth coloured fillings, which are as strong, safe and give a more natural appearance. If require cosmetic dentistry in Perth we would like to here from you. Click here to see examples of our work.

Porcelain Crowns

When a tooth is cracked, decayed or damaged, a crown may need to be fitted to protect and preserve the remaining natural tooth. A crown is a definitive covering that fits over the original tooth and address aesthetic needs, restores tooth function and enhances the overall health of your mouth. Crowns can be made of tooth coloured porcelain or gold.

Porcelain Veneers

Changing the appearance of your smile is now easier with porcelain veneers.Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic tooth coloured material, which are bonded to the front of your teeth to change their shape, size, alignment, or colour. This procedure requires little or no anaesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Porcelain veneers look completely natural and can be used to correct the following:

Porcelain veneers can be bonded to just one or two teeth to correct specific problems, or they can be used on all your teeth to give you a dazzling, Hollywood smile.

Enamel Bonding

Bonding is a technique that improves the appearance of your teeth by the direct application of tooth-coloured composite resin. Bonding is typically used for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, hiding stained areas on the tooth's surfaces or closing the gaps in between teeth.

Bonding can also be used to change the size or shape of your teeth, creating a smile that appears more symmetrical, space free and aesthetically pleasing. Unlike crowns or porcelain veneers, composite bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth. Although bonding may not be as long lasting as porcelain veneers or crowns, it can last for a number of years with proper care.

Bridges

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. There are three types of dental bridge: traditional, resin bonded (Maryland bridge), and cantilever. A bridge is a good option if your adjacent teeth already need some work done, or if you are not a candidate for dental implants. The type of bridge used will depend on the quality of the teeth on either side of the gap, as well as the position of the gap. At dental excellence we will assess your mouth and advise you on the best treatment option for you.

The 3 main types of bridges:

Traditional Bridges Traditional - When you replace a missing tooth with a traditional dental bridge, it actually involves three teeth: The missing tooth and the two adjacent teeth. The bridge is constructed as one piece with the false tooth suspended between them.
Resin Bonded Bridge Resin bonded bridge - Also known as a Maryland Bridge, these dental bridges do not involve crowning the adjacent teeth, so are useful where these show little or no previous damage. The new tooth is generally made from porcelain and is attached via metal or porcelain bands bonded to the adjacent teeth using resin. This type of bridge is particularly suitable for front teeth where stress is minimal, and the bond can be made out of view behind the teeth.
Canterlever Canterlever - These dental bridges are used where there is a healthy tooth only on one side of the gap. The bridge is anchored to mainly one tooth on just one side. As a result, this type of bridge is generally only suitable for low stress bridges such as front teeth.

Gum Lifting

Gum lifting and reshaping is a simple procedure to correct the "gummy smile" or uneven gum line. It is usually done in a single visit during which gums are laser-trimmed to alter the shape and size of the tooth area, improving the overall appearance.
