If you don’t like the way your smile looks in the mirror, you might find yourself covering your mouth in photographs or avoiding smiling altogether. Perhaps you have heard of cosmetic dentistry but believe it is a frivolous expense best left to the rich and famous. But did you know that if you have a beautiful smile, it is very likely going to be a healthier smile?

If you are an adult living with crooked teeth, chances are you have resigned yourself to a misaligned smile. Perhaps you missed out on orthodontics as a teen, or you had braces but didn’t wear your retainer as you should have, so your teeth have shifted out of a straight position.

The good news is that there are options for discreet braces that can straighten your smile—without the metal wires and brackets. We invite you to contact our Pascoe Vale dental clinic to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign invisible braces.

How Tooth-Coloured Dentistry Can Restore Your Smile

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

Made from the same material as the composite resin used for tooth-coloured fillings, we use bonding to fix the following dental issues:

  • To close up a gap between the teeth
  • To make teeth appear longer
  • To fix a tooth that has an unsightly shape
  • To repair a crack or chip
  • To cover up a discoloured tooth

The composite material blends in perfectly with your natural teeth, so no one will be able to tell you have had the procedure.

Kids learn by example, and as parents, your ...

Tips for Choosing a New Family Dentist

Family | Family Dentist Pascoe Vale

If you are like many people in Glenroy, VIC, the only time you think about going to the dentist is when you wake up during the night with a toothache, or you lose a filling in the midst of eating a biscuit.

An emergency is not the best time to go looking for a dentist—especially since you should be seeing a dentist twice each year for checkups and cleans. 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?

Ask for Recommendations

You have probably asked friends and family what hairdresser or mechanic ...

3 Benefits of Invisalign You Might Not Have Thought About

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

Anyone who has had traditional braces can tell you that sometimes wires and brackets have sharp edges that can irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. Invisalign plastic aligners are smooth, and they do not attach permanently to teeth or rub up against the gums or lips.

In addition, because
