How do dentists in Mackay provide cosmetic procedures?
Maybe you want to change your smile to reflect how you have always wanted it to look. This could be by reshaping your gums to show more of your teeth and less of your gums when you smile, or closing a gap or straightening a wonky tooth.
Or perhaps you want to get the smile back that you once had, before an accident left you with fewer teeth, or you have had metal fillings that are visible or you have developed stains on your teeth over time.
Whatever the reason, your dentist in Mackay is able to provide you with the information that you need to make an informed decision about what procedure is best suited to allow you to gain the results that you desire.
During an initial consultation at Walkerston Dental, we will allow you to explain to us what your oral health goals are. Together we will come up with a treatment plan for you that helps you to achieve that goal.
With the latest, high quality equipment that allows us to scan your teeth and pinpoint exact locations of implants or present to you a realistic visual representation of what you can expect as a final result, we have made it easier than ever to provide the best outcomes possible.
What are some of the available treatments?
There are a varied array of treatments that are available, depending on what you are looking for. Your dentist in Mackay can provide you with a series of different, suitable options to help you.
Veneers are an option for some who want a quick and very noticeable positive result. If you have a slight gap or a crooked visible tooth when you smile, or if you have stubborn stains that have you shy to smile, veneers can provide a great solution.
By applying a thin shell over the existing tooth, a veneer provides a perfect white and straight tooth in its place. Popular with celebrities, they are what you commonly see as a picture perfect smile.
Clear aligners allow you to move your visible teeth quickly whilst still enjoying the benefits of not disrupting your lifestyle. Worn a minimum of 22 hours a day, but removable to eat and clean, these aligners are upgraded every two weeks to help gradually move your teeth into the desired position.
This treatment usually takes around a year and you will need to come and visit us every six weeks or so to ensure the treatment is going as planned.
By protecting fragile teeth with a crown, you can mask discoloured, chipped or broken teeth in a cosmetic procedure that doubles as a restorative one as well. Crowns protect damaged teeth and help you to avoid the need for an extraction.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
