Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

A beautiful smile is very important in day-to-day life, it boosts our self confidence, and is an integral part of the first impression we make.  Cosmetic dentistry is not only about making the teeth whiter, it could also be making  teeth straighter, closing the gaps in between them,  evening out the  gumline, or restoring the aging worn down dentition. This can only be achieved after a full assessment of your teeth and in a lot of cases, a combination of cosmetic treatment may be required.  At caulfield south dental surgery, we believe in offering your long lasting results and giving you a healthy sparkling smile for life.

Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered in our surgery include:

Teeth Whitening

This can be done either as an in office procedure or a take home one. It’s very safe and effective.  Please note every one’s teeth are not the same, some patients may have a whiter result than others.

Porcelain Veneers

 They are a thin layer of ” facing” to be placed on the surface of teeth, giving them a whiter, more even look.  Porcelain has a degree of transluscency that mimics natural teeth, giving veneers a life like appearance.

Composite Bonding/Veneers

This is a procedure often chosen by our patients due to the fact it’s fast, economical and can drastically change your smile in one single visit.  Best of all, it is very conservative, most cases involve no removal of any tooth substance.  We can often close gaps, change the shape and color of teeth with composite bonding.

Tooth Coloured Crowns and Bridges

Have you seen a grey line around your front crown?  It may be due to the metal used in older styled crown and bridge work. Cosmetic dentistry in Melbourne has since improved. With newer materials now available, crowns and bridges can be made without any silver colored metal at all, even in the back teeth used for biting.  All of our crowns and bridges are Australian made and with TGA approved materials.


 Sometimes limited orthodontic work may be needed to effectively correct and align up teeth before other cosmetic procedures.
