Cosmetic dentistry involves improving the aesthetics of your teeth, whether that’s by means of teeth whitening, fillings, veneers or crowns.
Cosmetic dentistry is not just about aesthetics; it also helps with functionality, improving your bite and/or replacing damaged teeth so that you can chew and speak more effectively.
At Core Dental we have an experienced team of clinicians who are skilled in all areas of cosmetic dentistry. They practice from a single location, enabling them to collaborate on patient cases and benefit from peer review. This ensure you receive continuity of treatment and the highest quality personalised care.
Teeth can become stained or discoloured through consumption of dark, staining food and drink (think berries, coffee and red wine), smoking or the use of certain prescription medications. The solution is teeth whitening – the simplest and most affordable cosmetic dental treatment and a great way to refresh your smile.Learn More
Orthodontics is a specialised field of dentistry concerned with the treatment of malocclusion (bad bite).
This involves correcting the alignment and position of the teeth and in some cases the jaw. Treatments such as traditional braces, lingual braces and retainers such as Invisalign™ are used to gradually move the teeth into the desired position.Learn More
Dental veneers are custom-made shells applied to natural teeth for the dual purpose of adding strength and beauty. They can provide protection to teeth that have been chipped, broken or treated with root canal therapy. They also offer an opportunity to cosmetically lengthen, widen, straighten and of course whiten the underlying teeth.Learn More
A dental crown is a treatment designed to rebuild or support a damaged or root-filled tooth or to replace a missing tooth. The latter requires the placing of an implant before the crown is added. An alternative option for rebuilding an existing tooth would be a large filling; for replacing a missing tooth it would be a fixed or removable denture.Learn More
A dental bridge is a treatment designed to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) and as such is similar to a denture or an implant.
A dental bridge is a single artificial tooth (or series of teeth) fixed in the mouth. Bridges can be secured to an implant, or to adjacent teeth (in which case they provide additional strength in much the same way as a crown).Learn More
Dentures are a treatment designed to replace missing teeth and as such they are similar to a bridge or an implant.
A denture is a plate (or framework) that supports one or more artificial teeth. It can be manufactured from acrylic or cobalt chrome and is usually removable for cleaning and maintenance, although it can be fixed in place using a series of implants (an implant-retained denture).Learn More
‘Injectables’ have a wide range of smile-related applications. Muscle relaxants are a purified protein used to treat overactive muscles.
Injectables also form part of recognised treatment for temporomandibular disorder, associated with grinding and clenching of the teeth. Treatment with a muscle relaxant, in combination with other treatments prescribed by your dentist, can provide significant pain relief and improvement in jaw function.Learn More
