Cosmetic Dentistry in Pascoe Vale, VIC
If you are a professional or have an active social life, you likely become acquainted with new people every day. Many people like to make a great first impression. One aspect of that is having a smile that gives you confidence.
Few people, however, are fortunate enough to have a gorgeous smile from birth, and even if they do, smiles can suffer from ageing and wear.

How do I get started with cosmetic dentistry?
We will start with a smile consult to discuss your goals and what you would like to change about how your smile looks. This is your chance to share how you feel about the way your teeth and gums look with Dr Amir, so he can go over options that will give you the results you are looking for.
With smile design, you can rest assured that you will get the results you want.
What is digital smile design?
You have looked at your smile in the mirror your entire life, so it might be tough to imagine what your future smile will look like.
Dr Amir provides patients with the opportunity to review digital video demonstrating your before and after smiles, allowing for any final changes to colour, shape or design. Once the smile design is approved, we will proceed with treatment and final restorations.
Smile design helps patients achieve their preferred aesthetics in a predictable way.
Will my teeth look fake?
Modern cosmetic dentistry looks more natural than ever. We use tooth-coloured materials that closely mimic the appearance of tooth enamel, so no one will notice that your teeth stand out, only that you look great.
While there are no guarantees when designing a smile, you can count on Dr Amir to listen to every need and concern you have and to organise a treatment plan to help you get what you want when it comes to your smile.
Ultimately, it is your choice. At Lumino Smiles, we put our patients in charge of their smiles. We see ourselves as educators and helpers for what you want.
What are my cosmetic dentistry treatment options?
Teeth whitening – Developing stained teeth because of ageing is inevitable. If you drink coffee, tea or red wine or use tobacco, stains can develop more quickly, leaving your smile with a yellow or dingy hue.
At Lumino Smiles, teeth whitening, or bleaching, is one of the most popular cosmetic treatment options we offer. Most patients find they achieve more dramatic results under the supervision of a dentist who uses professional-strength bleach rather than opting for over-the-counter pharmacy options. Our customised bleaching trays keep the whitening agent where it is most effective – on the surfaces of your teeth and away from your gums where it can cause sensitivity.
Tooth-coloured restorations – Metal-based restorations often make teeth look darker or uneven in colour. Replacing them with tooth-coloured, metal-free restorations can brighten your smile.
At our Pascoe Vale dental clinic, we use the highest quality white fillings and ceramic restorations including crowns, inlays and onlays.
Porcelain veneers – One of the most versatile treatments available, porcelain veneers can address a number of common aesthetic concerns such as:
- Minor misalignment
- Uneven spacing
- Wear or damage
- Non-uniform appearance
If you admire celebrity smiles, chances are that you are admiring porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin, shell-like restorations that cover the front of your teeth to make teeth look uniform.
You can have a single veneer or multiple veneers, depending on your needs.
Cosmetic orthodontics – At Lumino Smiles, we offer patients convenient orthodontic options to straighten teeth. Both Invisalign and Six Month Smiles are convenient and more discreet ways for adult patients to opt for orthodontics without the traditional dark brackets and wires.
Do you do dramatic smile makeovers?
Smile makeovers utilise multiple treatments to give your smile dazzling results. If you have long admired your favourite celebrity’s smile, a full smile makeover can address multiple issues at once. Crowns can rebuild the bite, bonding can repair minor issues, and porcelain veneers will give your smile a natural and uniform appearance.
Smile makeovers do not need to be overwhelming. We can phase out treatment into multiple appointments to make your cosmetic dentistry fit neatly into your schedule.
Smile design will give you a sneak preview of your new smile before you commit.
Do clear braces work?
Properly aligned teeth are not only attractive but also healthier. Straightening your teeth can correct bite-related issues and overlapping teeth that are more difficult to brush and floss.
We offer orthodontic alternatives such as short-term braces and clear aligners to provide more convenient teeth-straightening options for our adult patients. Invisalign is a popular choice because it is so discreet – nearly invisible – so you do not have to announce that you have braces to the world every time you smile.
Invisalign can resolve many orthodontic issues such as irregular spacing between teeth, protruding teeth, overbite, underbite and most misalignment issues.
If you have a complex orthodontic case that is beyond the scope of treatment possible with Invisalign, Dr Amir can recommend another option to help you achieve the best results.
Call Your Dentist About Invisalign in Glenroy, VIC
The best way to determine if Invisalign will work for you is to contact our Pascoe Vale dental clinic to arrange an orthodontic evaluation. This comprehensive exam will allow us to provide you with all of your options and help you make a choice that will give you the best results.
Each patient has unique needs, and we look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
How do I prepare for my cosmetic dentistry appointment?
For the very best results, we recommend a dental clean and polish to remove any tartar before beginning your whitening routine. This allows the whitening gel to come in direct contact with enamel rather than with tartar.
Having a dental exam and clean will also give Dr Amir an opportunity to rule out any oral health conditions, such as gum disease and decay, that could hamper your cosmetic dentistry results.
If you would like an overall brighter smile, we may recommend that you first whiten your teeth before you proceed with restorations such as dental fillings, crowns and veneers because your dental restorations will not whiten like your natural teeth.
We will discuss how to best prepare for your cosmetic dentistry treatment at your consult.
