One of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments we use at our Pascoe Vale, VIC clinic is tooth-coloured dentistry. We use the latest composite materials to repair teeth that have been damaged or decayed.

Composite Bonding

Take some time to find the right dentist for your family and visit the clinic regularly, and you might be able to avoid emergencies altogether. But where should you start?

3 Benefits of Invisalign You Might Not Have Thought About

Invisalign Braces | Lumino Smiles Dental

In our Pascoe Vale, VIC dental surgery, Invisalign is a popular way for many of our patients to straighten their teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. Most people opt for Invisalign because they can improve their smile with nearly invisible plastic aligners. But many are unaware of the other benefits of Invisalign.

Invisalign Provides a Gentler Experience
