What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells (about the thickness of a contact lens) that can be shaped to perfectly match your teeth. These shells are adhered to the front of your teeth, providing a stain-resistant, strong and durable new smile with minimal downtime!
Discolouration on teeth can be devastating to your self-esteem. Brighten and refresh your smile with fast and effective teeth whitening.
Discolouration can be caused by a wide variety of factors. Consumables such as tea, red wine, dark soft drinks such as cola and berries are all responsible for staining an otherwise beautiful smile. Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking alcohol also affect the brightness of your teeth.
At Perfect Teeth, we provide tooth whitening treatments so you can reclaim the beauty of your smile. We supply an at-home tooth whitening treatment which means you can be in full control of the brightness of your smile!
Retain the structure of a damaged tooth with a strong and resilient porcelain crown.
Porcelain crowns are the perfect treatment for teeth that are cracked, broken or damaged that require more than a filling to save the integrity of the tooth. A porcelain crown acts as a strong and durable covering for your natural tooth, keeping the entire structure protected from further damage and restoring the appearance of the tooth.
Restore and enhance your smile with Perfect Teeth
At Perfect Teeth in Cairns we provide porcelain crowns to help save broken teeth from what otherwise would be an extraction. We also use porcelain crowns to cover dental implant rods to completely restore the aesthetics of your smile.
We have recently purchased a 3D oral scanner to eliminate the need for messy uncomfortable dental impressions.
Porcelain crowns are an effective and robust solution to tooth damage and can help to fully rejuvenate the appearance of your smile – better yet, they are long lasting!
Gain a permanent solution to your tooth loss with the help of Perfect Teeth.
Losing a tooth can be devastating not only to your self-esteem, but also your oral health. If you neglect to replace a missing tooth, you could be subjecting yourself to further dental issues such as:
- Remaining adjacent teeth can shift in an attempt to close the gaps left by missing teeth
- An incomplete arch of teeth containing gaps, which is more difficult to keep clean
- A heightened risk of gum disease
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are essentially titanium screws that are inserted directly into your jawbone material. After a period of months, the jawbone heals around the screw (a process called osseo-integration) and ultimately fuses with the screw to create a strong and durable tooth root alternative. A dental crown is then placed over the implant to bring full function and aesthetics back to your smile. We work in conjunction with experienced local implant surgeons to provide our patients with this service.
We also offer removable full or partial dentures as a less invasive alternative to dental implants.
Rediscover full function of your mouth with the help of Perfect Teeth, where we endeavour to maintain your oral health for life. And if you need orthodontics treatment and wisdom tooth removal, you can contact our team today.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
General dentistry is concerned with the overall health of the teeth and gums, including prevention, diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases. Cosmetic dentistry, on the other hand, is focused on enhancing the appearance of teeth, gums and bites. While general dentistry procedures are typically medically necessary, cosmetic dentistry is elective and aims to improve the aesthetic appeal of one’s smile. Our cosmetic dentistry services include teeth whitening, porcelain & composite veneers, crowns, and dental implants.
During your initial consultation for cosmetic dentistry, the dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your goals for treatment and provide you with an overview of the procedures that can help you achieve those goals. They may also take x-rays or impressions of your teeth to better understand the current state of your oral health. After discussing your options, the dentist will work with you to develop a customised treatment plan that fits your individual expectations and budget.
The frequency of teeth whitening treatments depends on several factors, including the type of treatment used, the level of discolouration and the individual’s oral hygiene habits. In general, professional teeth whitening treatments can be performed every six months to a year, while at-home whitening kits can be used more frequently, typically once every few months. However, it’s important to consult with your dentist before beginning any whitening treatment, as overuse can cause sensitivity and other oral health issues.
The duration of teeth whitening results varies depending on the individual’s lifestyle habits and the type of treatment used. In general, professional teeth whitening treatments can last up to three years, while at-home whitening kits typically provide results that last six months to a year. To maintain your whitened smile, avoid smoking, limit your consumption of staining foods and beverages and practice good oral hygiene.
While there’s limited research on the safety of teeth whitening during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, most dental professionals recommend avoiding whitening treatments during these times. This is because the chemicals used in teeth whitening could potentially harm the developing foetus or be passed on to the baby through breast milk. It’s important to consult with your doctor and dental professional before undergoing any cosmetic dental treatments while pregnant or breastfeeding.
In most cases, dental implants can be placed even if the patient has gum disease or bone loss. However, the dentist will need to evaluate the extent of the disease or loss and may recommend additional treatments to improve the health of the gums and bones before proceeding with implant placement. Implants are more likely to be successful if there is no active gum problems, so we aim to have any issues stabilised prior to commencing implant surgery. In some cases, bone grafting may be necessary to rebuild the bone structure in the jaw to allow for greater success of implant integration with the bone. It’s important to discuss any concerns with your dentist to determine the best course of action for your individual needs.
