In Bayside, people like to look and feel their best, so it’s not surprising that our cosmetic dentistry services are so popular! If you are looking to transform your image and add that ‘wow’ factor to your smile, it’s worth enquiring about our cosmetic dentistry services. Your teeth are one of your most important assets, so why not invest in them? In this article, we explain everything you need to know about our top 3 cosmetic dentistry services.
Cosmetic dentistry service #1: Teeth whitening
One of the easiest ways to achieve a beautiful smile that leaves a lasting impression is with teeth whitening. At Smile House, we see people of all ages wanting to experience the benefits of this cosmetic dentistry service. We do stipulate that patients must be 16 years or older to have their teeth whitened.
Our dentists use a variety of products to whiten teeth and lift stubborn stains, including all major brands on the market. We offer in-office bleaching or take-home bleaching, depending on your preference. You can rest assured that our teeth whitening products have been clinically studied and are safe.
So, what’s involved? First, we recommend a check-up to see whether your teeth need cleaning. At Smile House, we offer free check-ups and very cost-effective cleaning packages. During this consultation, we’ll discuss your budget and goals, and suggest the right treatment for you. If you have sensitive teeth, we offer desensitising treatments, so that the teeth whitening process is as comfortable as possible.
Cost: The price starts from $300 for take-home upper and lower teeth whitening kits. On the higher end of the scale are the KöR teeth whitening treatments, an advanced whitening system that allows your teeth to better absorb oxygen. Remember, we only use products we believe in – ones that achieve outstanding results!
Cosmetic dentistry service #2: Orthodontics
Straightening teeth can do wonders when it comes to improving one’s appearance and building confidence. Having braces can also make it easier to clean your teeth and reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease.
At Smile House, we recommend children have their first orthodontic consultation sometime between the age of 7 and 9 years. Some patients may need early treatment, while others may only require check-ups, followed by late intervention at age 12 to 14.
We use a variety of orthodontic treatments at Smile House. These include braces, removable plates and clear aligners. You can find further details about our orthodontic services here.
Cost: Prices start at $3000, but vary significantly between patients. Please book in for a free consultation for an orthodontic treatment quote.
Cosmetic dentistry service #3: Veneers
Veneers are another popular cosmetic dentistry service that involves bonding a thin shell over a tooth. They can be used to change the shape, position and colour of teeth. If your teeth are chipped, discoloured or worn, please speak to us about this treatment (you must be 18 years of age or older).
Veneers can be applied directly in the mouth with white filling or composite. They may also be manufactured in the lab using porcelain materials. Usually, the procedure involves removing a small amount of tooth structure, and we may need to see you at least twice. The good news is there is no downtime with veneers. More details can be found here.
Cost: The price starts from $350 per tooth for direct composite and $1100 for indirect porcelain veneers.
