Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Cosmetic Dentistry

How can we help you?

Our Mount Waverley, VIC dentists enjoy educating patients about their oral health, and they always take time to answer your questions. If you have questions for our dentists that are not addressed below, or if you would like more information, we invite you to contact our dental clinic. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

People often wonder if veneers can ruin their teeth, but veneers are a common and safe cosmetic treatment patients use to conceal aesthetic flaws. Veneers are durable and long-lasting, so they can protect your teeth from damage and change the appearance of your smile. 

Veneers Conceal Minor Aesthetic Concerns

Veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that cover the front surface of your teeth. These durable restorations can disguise several different kinds of cosmetic concerns, such as:

  1. Gapped teeth
  2. Crooked teeth 
  3. Stained teeth 
  4. Teeth of inconsistent shape or size
  5. Gummy smiles 

Whatever your cosmetic concerns may be, Dr Rhee or Dr Huynh can help you find a treatment that helps you meet your needs. 

The Veneer Treatment Process 

One of our highly skilled cosmetic dentists will apply the veneers to your teeth, permanently altering your smile based on your aesthetic goals. First, the dentist will gently remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of the tooth or teeth. This allows him to place the veneers in the ideal position, so they look, feel and function as naturally as possible.  Woman with dental veneers in glen waverley

For your comfort, we provide anesthetic during the treatment. Once the veneers are placed, your dentist will shape and polish them to make them blend in with your natural smile as a complement to your appearance.

Cosmetic dentistry has aesthetic benefits, which may help you feel more confident when smiling and laughing. Some cosmetic dentistry options, however, may also contribute to better oral health.

Dental Veneers

If you have crooked, discoloured or worn teeth, dental veneers and dental crowns can give the illusion of straight, white teeth without height discrepancies.  Aside from aesthetics, dental crowns can also strengthen a weak tooth following trauma or infection, in this case, making it a cosmetic option that also contributes to better oral health.

Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Tooth-coloured fillings and bonding can correct a cracked tooth or repair a cavity, but the composite resin is also visually appealing and matches your smile.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners improve your oral health by giving you an aligned bite and closing gaps in your smile—both of which can lead to premature enamel wear. Of course, Invisalign also enhances the appearance of your teeth, which makes it both an aesthetic and mile enhancing option.

Dentures are an excellent, affordable tooth replacement option for many patients. With dentures, dentists can replace an entire arch of missing teeth or just a few missing teeth, making this tooth-replacement option versatile. Additionally, dentures offer a non-invasive choice for patients who don’t want a surgical procedure, which some tooth replacements, such as implants, require.

Cleaning Your Dentures

Another benefit of dentures is how easy they are to clean and maintain. Many dentures are removable, making cleaning easy. You can simply remove the dentures and use a soft-bristled brush to clean the dentures using a non-abrasive toothpaste or denture cleaner. 

Those with dentures should also take care to preserve the health of any remaining natural teeth and their gums, brushing and flossing as instructed by the dentist.

To keep dentures in good condition, it’s also essential to soak them regularly. Most denture wearers choose to soak their dentures overnight. You can soak the dentures in clean, cool water or a denture solution.

Our dentures are designed for fit, function, and a natural look. And our patients have been very pleased with their new smiles. We think you will be as well.

We start the process for dentures in Mount Waverley, VIC with an exam in our dental clinic. If your dentist finds through the exam that dentures are a good option for you, we take a mould of your mouth. We use this model to make a custom denture that complements you in fit, function and appearance.

If dentures will not provide the best results for you, your dentist in Mount Waverley offers a variety of alternative tooth-replacement options as well.

For those who are looking for a more stabilized tooth replacement, we also offer implant-retained dentures. This means your dentist gently secures your denture to your jaw using four to six dental implant posts—making sure the area is thoroughly numb before implant placement.
